Purchasing a US/Euro CD Key

Posts: 52
I'm just wondering what the affects of purchasing a US/Euro CD Key are?

GameLane an Australian online game retailer is selling Diablo 3 for 57 AUD. A significant price difference, the catch is that the cd key is a Euro CD-Key. Does this matter?

Will I be defaulted to the Euro servers? or will this affect my RMAH?

That will only affect the localisation I believe. As you can change the realm/server to play on any one you like.

Yes, you will not be able to access our RMAH.

Yes but you can change, yes it will. In another respect while I'm not certain of this yet, there was talk about being able to use local currency with the version we'll get in Aus, which makes me wonder if you'll be stuck having to use other currencies with different RMAH's which attracts currency conversion fees. There may be flexibility though that I'm not aware of, making that aspect a non-issue.

Got a response from Gamelane.
From what they say (unless I interpreted it wrong) as long as my BNet address is in Australia I will get defaulted to Australia RMAH and North America server regardless of where the CD-Key comes from.

But I'm not sure I take their word for it since they're just trying to make a sale. I really want a response from blizzard. I asked Blizzard by submitting a ticket they replied with an automated message basically telling me to f off.. and to go to the forums for an answer..
