Thank you for trying to settle some of the rage, Phrozen. +1 to you.
Honestly, I think everyone is mostly just worried about being able to instantly gear out a character with a credit card and no skill, but they need to remember that somebody has to find this item and decide that selling it for cash is more beneficial than salvaging, selling for gold, saving it for another character, or giving it to a friend.
Chinese Farmers may be able to farm gold fairly easily, but if they have limited Magic Find as well as it seems, they are not going to be able to get Legendaries left and right like in D2, and they have severely limited the teleport functions of every class.
farmers will take over. think of WoW if you have ever played it... this will ruin the game i can't see how anyone thinks otherwise they are legitimizing and condoning (maybe indirectly but condoning none the less) gold/item farming so they can make more money. THAT IS ALL. After 10 years of waiting this is what you get, the ability to completely deck out a character with a credit card. It will happen if you can buy items with money plain and simple. Instead of working on ways to prevent it they are making it easier.
