Do RMAH users get better drops?

  • #21
    i once tripped over a stone henceforth i believe that all stones around the world want to kill me!

    by your logic HC player must get the worst drops out of all but my HC char got better drops than my SC char? probably another conspiracy by blizzard *rollstinfoilhat*

    I have a better question for you. Do people who get better drops tend to use the RMAH more?

    The answer is yes, people just keep asking the question backwards.

    I want to share a theory I have.

    I will start with a short example.
    Since patch 1.0.5 I've been collecting all the crap legendaries I've found.
    When it got to about 80 items I've salvaged them all and sold the entire brimstone pack.
    Low and behold, a few minutes after the pack was sold, I got a (crap) legendary craft plan drop for the first time.
    This indicated to me that the drops are somehow affected by your play style and/or AH usage.

    If I enhance this indication, I can assume that RMAH users get better drops.
    Better drops for RMAH users = more money for Blizzard.

    Personally, my best drop in nearly 500hours playtime was a Skorn that sold for 150mil in GAH about 2 months ago, which let me build my barb.
    I don't use the RMAH.

    Would love to read your thoughts and personal experience about it.


    So much stupid, and so many jerks... Not the OP, but many of those responding : )

    It's not a bad theory, but disproving it is just as impossible as proving it, so it's kind of moot... Blizzard did indeed claim that AH usage affects the game (design), but I don't recall them specifically stating how...

    However, those that use the RMAH frequently (to sell), do indeed get better items (more often) than those that don't.

    Your opinions may differ on that, but note one special point. I'm not arguing cause and effect. : )

    I have put some very nice gear on the RMAH. Not one piece of it sold. I then sold all of it on the Gold AH. And sold the gold on the RMAH. Does that mean i will get more legendary drops?

    i noticed this too, everytime i use the RMAH i get mempos and witching hours dropping out the sky, but whenever i use the gold AH i get wizard hats.....

    but on a real note this topic is trolling at its best. he uses the rmah and then gets a legendary pattern drop so this makes him think using the rmah will award him better drops?

    man and i thought i was dumb....

    I got a Capt Crimson and Sage's plan both of which are not bad, the Capt's are great for leveling up. I don't even have that many hours played compared to many people here.

    It only works if you play on low odd-numbered IP servers.

    Yes, and then when the internet explode from that, they went and clarified that it did NOT affect drop rates. So we're back to the OP coming up with a theory after a single data point, which is really about as scientific as foil hats.
