Albeit there are still champion and elite mobs that wtfpwn my hp down to nothing in a matter of seconds, but no white mobs are a threat anymore and it's nice to be able to take a few hits from some of those OP mobs with ridiculous affixes and not go down. It takes four of belials hand smash attacks to KO me, that's probably better than what most tank classes can even contest to.
There is really no need to stack that much resists as a Wizard honestly speaking. In act 3 you will get bent over even with that much resists while not running Force Armor. I had over 850 resist all and 5k armor at one point, but everything was still procing Force Armor once you're into act 3. Having only 30k DPS with Force Weapon in act 3 is going to make things very difficult for you. While it's nice to take 1-2 extra hits with all your resists, if you can't kill mobs quickly, you will still die.

So, I gather that, unless you have really godly gear to offer that selling stuff for real money is a bad idea at this point (due to the comission both Blizzard and Paypal get)? Works for me, but I worry that the people selling the really REALLY nice gear will all start selling their items only for dollars, which will leave people like me struggling to gain gold only high and dry.

I'm running a melee critical mass build, I'm not bent over because things rarely are able to target me. I need the resistance because while that's the case, champion and elite creatures are incredibly hard to lock down, so I need to be able to take a few hits before I frost/nova and regain my health from life on hit. Rinse and repeat. I don't even have my desired build yet and I can proc my 15second Frost Nova once every 2-3 seconds. Added with Diamond skin that procs just as quickly, I'm rather difficult to kill. I hoenstly think once I have max critical hit, I'll be able to perma freeze even champion packs. This is why I'd say this build is far more capable than a tank class unless he has insanely good armor. My attacks per second is almost 3 and I have 800 life on hit, coupled with some pretty sick life regeneration. And yeah,wizards shouldn't have to kite, they're not a ranged class like DH and I found it incredibly tedious as a mage, so I just opted for a more hands on approach. Not to mention the fact that any elite mob with the fast affix was completely impossible to kill or run from, and this was kind of my countermeasure. If this build has a weakness, I'd say it's ranged mobs hitting me in the back while I lock down the melee. I kind of need a work around for that.

People are buying items in the $250s.

Bnet balance->gold->paypal

The entire market is very chaotic atm, I think I will stay out of it for now, the $10 I made was more for shit and giggles. Maybe I will sell more items so I can buy HotS when it comes out.

Yeah, I mean you get that much by playing 2 minutes of the game. And wouldn't you be better off selling to vendors at that price?

Vallen, I meant US Dollars, not in-game gold. Unless you were being sarcastic about the stupidity in the RMAH right now. XD

I am actually pretty surprised that people are actually buying stuff for $250. That's just ridiculous, I didn't even spend that much money for my PSP.

Ah, didn't notice the currency.

There will always be suckers on the first day.

Gold? What do you mean?

I'm actually surprised that people are buying at such high cost this early in the game. We're not talking about godly Rares here, but "plain" Magic items. Man, I wish I could spend my money that frivolously.

On the bright side, if this keeps up, things look good for me in the selling part.

Cheers.

Had a quick look at the RMAH, and wow... no way I'm paying that kind of price for the items I want. I rather grind the gold, thank you very much, or gamble with the Blacksmith.

Heh.

Skane: I know. It's insane at how anyone would think these prices would fly. I mean, I play Warhammer 40k, which stands to say that my purchases can go upwards of 50 USD on a single box, but at least I can TOUCH the models I get. These... are stuff stored on a server somewhere by Blizzard, that in a decade or so might not exist anymore when Blizzard decides not to support a D3 server anymore.

Heh. I collect model kits, and some of them date back to 1988. Spent a ton of money on them, but I still get a sense of satisfaction seeing them in my glass display cupboards.

*Good grief! Some of them are already twenty plus years old?!*

I am not opposed to spending money on items. Heck, I have spent money getting vanity skins in LoL, but... unless it is a perfectly rolled Rare with no "useless" mod and maxed-out attributes, I do not see myself paying more than $25 on anything.

$US100 for a Magic Item? Maybe when a cash crate drops out of the sky and lands at my feet.

Cheers.

Yes, it's unbelievable but I see numerous 100+ dollar bids for high-end items. It's nuts.

What is happening is that the godly gears are getting sold ONLY in RMAH, while the gold AH atm has a lot of "junk".

As soon as gold commodity is enable I might sell 10mil gold into bnet balance. I am guessing I can buy it back for a lot cheaper in a week: that is if I wanted to buy it at all.

Fucking hell, I see actual money bids ($12 and increasing!) for that legendary belt that is worse than the one I'm selling in the Gold AH... and I have to wait a day to release it. >.>

Also, this elite pack thinks it's so clever.
Spoiler:


Also, I get spammed with a bunch of achievements for no reason like leveling the blacksmith to 10... which I haven't done.

Um, they are up on the AH for $250. Doesn't mean people are buying them for that price.

It's the first day, taking RMAH prices at face value is foolish.

No you can't. Not yet.
Commodities are turned off.

When you search for items, you can see the sold status of some. People are buying them, maybe not in mass quantities, but there are actually people out there throwing money here. Could be kids using their parents' credit cards on the sly, but still...

That said, I agree that prices will eventually drop.

Cheers.

Well, no shit, but I've seen some stupid auctions sell as "sold" with fairly mediocre items which made me annoyed that I had items stuck in the gold AH. =p

And of course prices will stabilize-- when they know better.
