I'll just try and be the voice of reason here. Not really trying to play Devil's Advocate or anything, just sharing my own experience with 1.0.3.
I was doing probably 2-3 Siegebreaker runs each day pre 1.0.3 for about 3 weeks (Wife/kids/job). I got good items to sell. I even picked up a few of my own upgrades, though those were generally replaced by AH purchases at some point.
1.0.3 came and I found, as many other did, that Act 3 just wasn't worth farming with higher repair costs and a nerfed loot table. I farmed Act 1 for about three days before going back to Act 3. I just didn't enjoy there be no challenge whatsoever. My farm pattern is to clear Fortified Bunker levels 1 and 2, and then do Keep levels 1-3 followed with Siebreaker to end the run. In the last four days I've picked up 3 items that sold for more than 8 million gold each.
RNG? Luck? Sure. I picked up a 31% Stormshield with Str/Vit and a perfect 70 resist that sold for 20 million in my very first foray into Act 3. What I'm saying is you never know when your luck will turn. You are literally 5 minutes of farming away from getting what some could see as the best item in the game. Just because you haven't gotten it yet doesn't make it a measure for when you'll get it.
TLDR; This game is a time sink. Time will generate reward. How much time? No one can answer that, not even Blizzard.

Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from mavfinYeah, if you get charged tax on stuff, blame your state, not Blizzard.
Yes, blame Texas for having no state tax. That darn state not charging us an annual tax based on our income, I just wish they would find some way to charge the lowest amount of tax possible without outside factors effecting the total tax. Shucks! /sarcasm
Those of you not being charged a sales tax in other states, enjoy having to include your RMAH sales on your [insert state here] income tax return!
