The Diablo 3 Auction House: First Look


As reported earlier, the Auction House has been enabled in the Diablo 3 F&F Beta. Remember, this is only the Gold Auction House and not the Real Money Auction house, which will look slightly different. The UI is nice and simplistic, but at the same time offers many search criteria for a detailed search. Our very own forum user Xajten has posted a nice video showcasing the functionality of the new Gold AH.

There seems to be a few issues reported so far with the new AH from Beta testers, mainly an issue that is preventing purchased items from being sent to your stash, and an odd bug that causes your Blacksmith to reset his learned recipes.

Blizzard QA Poster Vasadan had this to say:

Hey everyone,
We are aware of the critical issue that is resetting your Blacksmith’s recipes after sending an item you bought on the Auction House to your shared stash. This can also happen when selling items on the Auction House.

In the meantime, please do not post any more threads about it.
Thank you very much for your patience.

We can only hope that these bugs aren’t serious enough to delay the DiabloWikiBeta!

  1. at first i was confused/disturbed because there only was “+ % wiz dmg ” and “+ % WD dmg” in the gear mods in the video
    thats because i want to do a DH build with Chakrams as main skill; they dont scale with with weapon dmg and now they wont with “+ % class dmg” either.. so.. hmm…
    but then i rememberd that there is “+attack”-mod.. so i know what to do

  2. Ayyy what’s up with the soft sound effects? Need some heavy weapon CALOOCH sounds with the scrolling. None of that soft Teen rating sound effects. Pfft not buying. (sooo buying)

  3. Gold AH must be different from RMAH. Blizz has said that the RMAH will have a fixed listing fee and another fixed fee when it sells. The gold house apparently charges a single 15% fee of the final sale price. This seems unfortunate because then the gold AH will inevitably be overrun by many low priced items.

  4. What a stupid looking hat.
     
    Also, it’s too bad the advanced search isn’t up and running.  I’d like to see if you can search by name, class of weapon, etc.

  5. I love the 5 minute timer on item listing.
    You can cancel an auction if you typed a wrong price, but after 5 minutes it’s set in stone. No more bidding on auction that gets deleted just before it ends.

  6. Anyone noticed the different mods on the Griswold’s Edge Legendary Swords?  
    Looks more like rare than unique(legendary) item.

  7. Yeah the interface is “simplistic” but, without actually using it, it seems incredibly straight forward and has all features I can think of. I like it.
