Grabbing a weapon for an alt is fine and good but shouldn't outweigh exposing the entire player base to perfect rolls. The auction house is a difficult concept to pull off properly in ARPGs and is tied directly to item properties which is another thing they fucked up here. I think an auction house could work but not with all of the other mistakes they made.
An Auction house can NEVER work in an SP ARPG. It defeats the main drive of the game. Why would you put a thing in your game that motivates people to not actually play your game?
