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.

Sounds like the same line of thought that drives them to use onerous DRM methods to prevent piracy, damaging the experience for paying customers along the way. You must really want to be that hamster on the exercise wheel to put up with this sort of thing.

Pretty much. Everything is slanted downhill to point towards monetization through the AH. Remember, Blizzard gets a 15% comission off of each sale, and then pulling money out nets them another 15% fee. So 30% of each transaction in theory is a *hell* of a lot of potential money.

Incidentally, I have found one thing Diablo 3 is *fantastic* at. I boot it up and start playing and within 30 minutes, without fail, I'm falling asleep.
