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.

Actually, I'm not sure it will change much. The chinese gold farmers can NOT participate in the RMAH (asia isn't going to have access to any RMAH), so they will continue to sell on the "black" market, spamming general chat and selling through websites. They won't be able to use blizzard's processing system at all. In other words, nothing will change from how it is now. We are getting a preview of what it will continue to be like.

They're going to have access, they will just do it through a subsidiary or other third party based somewhere else. If Blizzard blocks their IP then they will use a VPN and if they block their payment addresses they will just a third party.

Last time I said that this would happen I was told that it'd be "far too difficult" to VPN into the Americas or otherwise work around the regional restrictions. Which I still laugh at.

Which is bullsh*t. The only way it won't happen is if the chinese farmers can't make a profit that way. And again, why would Blizzard want to go to *too* much trouble to lock them out? They make 15% off the top and another 15% when you withdraw. Blizzard telegraphed it's intent when they said that flat gold would be available in the auction house.
