Good Morning Sanctuary

Yesterday we saw commodities for cash go live on the auction house which is just another piece in the RMAH puzzle slotting into place. I have to admit that I have not dabbled much in the RMAH, in fact yesterday I tested it out for the first time with a mixture of commodities and rare items. I hold out no hope in anything actually selling as I think the economy is still in flux, due to various reasons, but I wanted to see if anything would actually sell. According to this thread Elly posted last night a few of you tried it out with mixed results. So did any of you guys jump on the RMAH when commodities went live?

Auction House Turns Players Into Slaves?

If you’d like to read a wildly-biased rant against the business practices of the Diablo III Real Money Auction House, you’re in luck, since one has just popped up.

Real-Money Auction House Reminder and Update

In perfect time for when people get their salary, Blizzard will (hopefully) roll out the Real Money Auction House on May 29th. At this point I do not miss it at all I’m happy with just the Gold Auction House, even with some items being overpriced. But the opportunity to buy items and gold with money will be a nice addition to the game’s economy. It will be even more interesting to see the prices on the Real Money Aution House and compare them to the Gold Auction House. Let´s get ready to sell our virtual items so we can recoup our cost of the game.
