Diablo® III

What region am I? it's complicated.

Alright, I'll try to make this clear.

I bought the WoW annual pass on a European account
I now live in the U.S and battle.net knows it
I ordered the Collector's edition from a European store

What region will I be? (I want to have my main region as Europe because of the AH)

Will my Euro Collectors edition update my annual pass account or will it create an entirely new account? Does my original region matter here? (please no, I can't wait until that thing is delivered to play)

Your RMAH region is based on your contact information. If you're currently registered as living in the US, you'd be using the US RMAH.

so can I use the US rmah with characters created in the eur servers then?

Like if I got a physical copy in one region but lived in US, I'd still get ah access in the US?

If it's not clear - my battletag, my SC and WoW accounts are all in the EU region.

I'm not sure you can buy something from the US RMAH while playing on another region. It may be possible though...

Hmm looks like I may actually be completely fine... As long as the items on the RMAH can b bought with any of my characters in the EUR servers I dont care what market it is tied to

That page does mention the item being locked to the region it was bought in, but makes no mention of whether you're able to buy an item on your region's RMAH while playing on another region.
