No one is holding a gun to your head and forcing you to "ruin your game". Heck, you shouldn't even be tempted to... since the only reason to play the game IN THE FIRST PLACE (or the entire genre basically) is to kill lots of things and randomly generate more loot.
Apparently Hell difficulty spikes so hard that you *have* to resort to the auction hall or get incredibly lucky.
I don't know. I played 20 minutes into nightmare difficulty and realized that the maps weren't randomly generated, and this was EXACTLY the same game I just finished playing, and I uninstalled it and never went back. With zero variety other than "tougher bad guys" I had no interest in the game.
