Quote from Gabriel_LoganThose of us who played the game as it was designed to be played, cannot do such things as farming A1-A2 is completely non-profitable, as the richest players control the market entirely, and inflate the gold prices accordingly.
I know its a minor detail in your argument, but this is something people bring up a lot that irks me. Inflation means that the things you sell on the AH are worth more, too.
If you're going to gear up through the AH, you need to make money through the AH. You don't need to be an AH master to do that, but you do need to learn how to recognize the 250k+ items that drop in A1. Yellow jewelry, stat/vit/resist gear, stuff with IAS (maybe crit instead after the patch), etc.
His point is, that not everyone wants to rely entirely on AH gear. Some of us would like to rely on drops for upgrades and occasionally check the AH when we're feeling lazy or frustrated from lots of drops we didn't like. i don't mind if others use the AH for that, but i'd like the option of being just as successful by playing the game as I can be from playing the stock market.
