I'm also flabbergasted by the greed shown by so many in this thread. They are complaining about loss of value of the items or deflation that ruins their well-oiled gold making machine. "Bad for you!" I say, good for the rest of us that want to find upgrades for our own use.
You do realize that a big portion of "the rest of you" will be complaining a week after the patch goes live that your new found legendary items not for your class is worth so little right?
Quote from Fishas we might finally get a chance to find a good legendary and/or set, and we can actually afford some of those well-rolled legendaries from AH which are atm hugely overpriced/ impossible to reach without getting good drops and selling them.
But your drops will be worth less and the top items will just be harder to reach, the only thing helped by increased drops in a AH economy is mid level gear, higher drop rate just moves the bar what's a good item and the almost good items gets more saturated.
This conversation, if anything, highlights the divide in the player-base's mindset that Blizzard is struggling with. There are those who think the AH is a natural extension of the game and thus the game must entice its use, and there are those who think the game has to be good even if the AH never existed and that using the AH will only spoil the experience. I'm starting to believe that making a Diablo game that compromises for both sides is impossible...
Oh, and if you're curious, I'm in the non-AH camp. So yeah, I like the change.
