I am addicted :)
Even before coming to this post I was looking at the AH to see what I could do...instead of playing the game. Without the AH I will play the game more and have more fun doing it since I can upgrade and find my own items without having someone else find it and post it on a thread / ah.
The mistake I made, and I am sure others feel the same, was buying the first item I ever bought on the AH. Why? Because now every item I found was crap automatically. Thus the need for the AH came in because never in a million years...except a few awesome rare occasions like my skorn...would I ever find the items I now saw on the AH during my own gameplay. This is why Blizz is taking down the AH. Because a lot of people feel they have to use it. Even if they "fixed" itemization people would still use the AH because you can probably find a better item there. Take away the AH, have players play the game, players find / craft their own gear, player takes pride in their own character.
That is how I want to play...you may not want to but that is where the game is going.
If, and I know we hate the word "if", drop rates are anything like the console version you wont have a problem finding your items you need for a build.
Not to mention there are going to be tons of new way to play your WD with all the new item affixes coming...why limit yourself to 0dogs or CoB?
We have seen a demo of the Thorns build on a crusader that could easily transfer to WD.
There are pet boosting items coming.
Wait and see what is coming before you go all nerd rage on the forums. As much as most people think Blizz is not stupid. They are professionals who plan and test before they implement. They are not perfect...they are human. Give it time.
