Diablo III Hotfixes and More

The Diablo III Website outlines some new hotfixes applied to Diablo III. These once again carry a warning that these note may contain spoilers for anyone who has not completed the action/RPG, but this is a generic warning that doesn't really apply in this case. Gold drops form ash post and vases have been nerfed, leading to complaints that this prevents players from being able to farm them as before for the gold required to buy the items from the auction house required to play the game at the hardest levels, which seems illustrative of some balance issues yet to be worked out. Also, the I am (we are) Diablo III thread on Reddit is live where game designers Wyatt Cheng, Andrew Chambers, and Jay Wilson all discuss the present and future of the game.

Maybe if you tried not being so invested in a position and actually thought about it. Did you stop to think that" items can easily be traded among accounts? I'm sure there will be items that are valuable, and the bots can look for those and funnel them all to a few accounts that deal with a 3rd party with a US address.

I said that already in my initial post, thanks for finally coming around. Of course some will use a third party, likely to get around protection but they will influence the RMAH. They already do this with gold even, many are actually run by US companies which get asians to do the "labor". The RMAH launches next week and Blizzard is powerless to stop people from abusing the gold auction house thus far, let alone the RMAH where the incentive will be much higher for those who want to exploit it. Country boundaries are meaningless in this regard, they won't be limited or content to just sell gold when there is money to be made selling items too. Many players don't feel comfortable on third party sites and will trust in Blizzards sanctioned system so there will be a demand.
