Diablo III Patch 1.0.2 Notes - Auction House




Below are theitems from Diablo III Patch 1.0.2 Notes related to the Gold Auction House.

"Auction House
  • The auction log in the Completed tab will now display a player's activity (bids, buyouts, sales, etc) in the proper order
  • When placing a new bid over a previous bid on the same auction, players will now be provided with the correct warning message: "Raising your maximum bid on an Auction you are already winning raises your current bid to just above your previous maximum bid. Are you sure you want to continue?"
  • Players will now receive an error message if they attempt to purchase an item after the 50 item limit has been reached in the Completed tab
  • The "Physical Damage" Preferred Stats option for rings has been renamed to "Bonus Minimum Physical Damage"
  • The "All Damage" Preferred Stats option for weapons and armor has been removed and replaced with bonuses of specific damage types
  • Items which have been purchased from a vendor and equipped by the player can now be sold on the Auction House
  • Listing items on the Auction House from a different character than the one currently selected should no longer cause item display issues"

Most of the above changes seem to be aimed at increasing Auction House stability which it needs very badly.

The Journey Begins - My First Diablo III Sales


The above successful Diablo III auctions may not look like much to some people but to me they are the small beginnings of my Diablo III auction house learning process.

What makes these item sales so special? I was able to sift through my collected Magic and Rare items and first off choose which not to vendor/destroy and after that decide which of the items left would actually net me a hefty profit.

At the moment a "hefty profit" is anything over 5000 gold. Now I'm not finished with Nightmare (on final act) ut even so I've been able to make some decent item sales by spending a bit of time analyzing and searching for similar items on the Auction House until I hit upon items that seemed to be selling for over 5k.

This is only the beginning but so far I've enjoyed the experiences of not only farming these items but also figuring out which to sell and for what.

How has the Diablo III Gold Auction House been treating you so far?

Battle.net Balance Service Goes Live



Just a quick note that the "Battle.net Balance" service that some of us will be using to buy and sell items in Diablo III has gone live. As it is not people can choose to add money into the service and then use that money to buy things like Blizzard games, game time etc. In the future we will use it in Diablo III.

This may mean that people can conceivably buy/sell items in Diablo III and use the real-world currency in their Battle.net Balance account to pay for World of Warcraft Expansions and more importantly World of Warcraft game time.

This is pretty huge. You could conceivably never have to pay for another month of game time ever if you're able to make enough money buying and selling Diablo III items. Interesting. Very interesting. Read the full official Blizzard blog post after the jump.

Diablo 3 For Profit Renamed "Power Word: Gold Diablo"



While there is still very little happening in the Diablo III gold-making space we thought we'd take this chance to bring the blog more in-line with our other Power Word: Gold blogs.

In doing so we have revamped the look as well as renamed the blog from "Diablo 3 For Profit" to "Power Word: Gold Diablo".

We have also created a new URL for the blog which can now be found at diablo.powerwordgold.net. In addidion we have updated our RSS feed so be sure to subscribe to that. Our twitter account (@D3ForProfit) will remain unchanged.

That's all for now. Watch this blog as more information about the Diablo III economy and real-currency auction house becomes available.
