    Diablo 3 Stash for Cash -- China Only

    [​IMG]Blizzard's post about the upcoming microtransactions didn't specify which Realm or region it would apply to, except to say not on the Americas or European realm. Today there's a post on the Korean Battle.net forums that says... it's not coming to Korea either. (The Korean post is just a direct translation of the original Microtransactions post, concluding with "not in this region.")

    So which realm is getting the "stash for cash" feature? Not a realm, but a country. China. The features are currently planned to go live only in China, which has its own closed Battle.net server system and doesn't share access with the rest of the Asian Server. Diablo 3 Stash for Cash -- China Only.

    The rest of Asia and/or the Americas and Europe might get "stash for cash" options at some point, and lots of you guys in comments to the original post said you'd be happy to spend some money that way. There's nothing official or imminent about that option, though.

    Thanks to DrazzlibKun for sending word from Hong Kong, clarifying this issue.

    With any luck, what happens in China will stay in China.

    It's pronounced yen, but it's yaun. Or RMB actually.

    It's actually Yuan and it is pronounced You-arn.

    To be more correct the currency is renminbi(RMB). Yuan is a unit of currency (basically dollar).

    It is a bit like how the sterling is the British currency, but the unit is pound.

    It should be Yuan.

    Some politically sensitive Chinese/Japanese may take offense.

    Can't mule when all your characters are lvl 70 , oh wait you can but then I can't use those characters because they are full of suff .

    It's 2015 and this stash issue is a sad state of affairs . Funnily they could not / would not give us it , because they said if they give us more stash we would want more , but now money comes into it , lol , apparently it can be done .

    Yeah I think game changing stuff shouldn't be in NA. Like I said before, the best solution would be to give every character their own unique tab specific to them for the sole purpose of storing that class' sets and weapons/offhands/gear they can only use.

    But they better include "free" tabs in the next expansion, too.

    When I used to go to China for work everyone there said "yen". Even the Chinese. Perhaps it's a slang pronunciation but that's how they said it.

    When I go to China everyone says yuan. Probably different parts of China have different pronunciation, I spend most of my time down south.
