GameFront - Diablo 3′s Auction House Economy Has Screwed New Players.
Diablo 3′s Auction House, an evil more nefarious than the series’ titular villain, is the reason anyone trying to get into D3 today will face the unfortunate results of having a game’s economy be the driving force behind its gameplay. Why? Because the game’s item drop rates were balanced around the idea that players will periodically use the AH to upgrade their gear, but the current state of the game makes doing so a near-impossibility for a new player.

Welcome to 6 months ago GameFront!

I think everything is fine. You will find good gear on the regular AH for when you are leveling. The bulk of the real money AH is;

a) Very high end gear drops you want past max level

and b) gear with stats deemed essential for farming build after max level.

Neither of these are new nore do they effect new players. Question is do new players realize what they are getting into is a made for the player grind fest action rpg with the worlds shortest single player storyline? -_-

I'm just glad I didn't pay money for it.
