The RMAH I thought would give an opportunity for some players to make a buck, but I look at it today and the one thing I notice the most is the price of gold is at .50 per million. Basically a whole $1 gets you 2 million gold. I ask.......with cheap prices like this, is anything but gold even selling on the RMAH? Its easy to pull out a Jefferson, get 40 million gold, and then move on to the GAH. Is anyone really selling anything anymore in the RMAH?
This leads me to loot, legendaries, set items, and with that said, I ask..........wtf determines a price on loot? Use to it was all about the Resistance and high main stat items with vitality, for casters it was all about the high damage 2h weps + attk speed %, now it seems to be all about Crit % and Crit damage %. As this game seems geared toward that, I thought this was where the money was, apparently not, matter of fact I am not quite understanding what is selling for what, I ask for Price Checks in chat for say this item I have had for quite a while now:
arcane resist 40
all resist 34
crit chance 6%
Thats one of the prime pieces I been trying to find a price on, you type in stats similar to that on AH rounding to nearest 10th (150, 160, 40, 30, 6) and nothing pops up in the AH.
people in chat says its about 30 million, other times people will tell me I wont get much for it.
But then when I find the crit % items, items of similar upon the search in the AH is not even a million, some is like 10,000 gold (LOL Really?)
I am lost, granted I came back into Diablo about 5 days ago, and my Barb is crappy geared (can do MP3 but its hard, MP2 more suited) I am just finding an identity crisis when it comes to loot, what the hell is selling? Outside the fact I can farm till I am blue in the fact in all the acts and never find a legendary or set items, even though my MF is at 300%. (Paragon 11). Least in Diablo II a unique (Legendary in D3) would drop once in a while, same with set items. In Diablo III and since the last many months, it seems I have went into an endless loop, I am not one for farming gold, I hate it when the price of it is a joke, but its set here for 2-3 hours, and basically kill many elite packs, maybe a boss or 2, and their is nothing to show for it but a little bit of EXP for the Paragon.
I am sure this topic will get shredded by trolls, because quite frankly, no one cares about casuals and most of the players left playing this game is elitist who got lucky or spent a fortune.
