I'm a normal working person, I have a job, it's not a great job, but my fiance and I do alright. I love Diablo, and I'm enjoying the game, but I only get to play maybe 10-15 hours a week. I just got my first barb up to lvl 60, having a lot of fun starting inferno.
Anyway the point is, the RMAH is perfect for me, I was all over it. If D3 keeps me entertained and therefore I'm not buying other games, I'm happy to spend some cash to get my character some amazing gear that my life doesn't afford me the time to truly grind for. I would *happily* spend some dough to outfit my barb with some Immortal King's gear. So I happily boot up and go to check it out this morning for the first time, thinking maybe I can get some amazing stuff.
You jokers that are putting this !@#$ up for sale are a real piece of work. I'm sure some of you will get lucky with a few saudi princes happily paying $250 for a virtual item, but jesus christ. I should be able to completely outfit a character with incredible %^-* for like $20, tops.
These things work themselves out with time, but yeah, seeing prices set that high across the board (lowest buyout of immortal king's cage was $60! the price of the bloody game!) really forced me to rant. How utterly silly.
Never have so many people impatiently waited for their auctions to *not* sell, so that they can relist them tomorrow for a sane price. (and then again and again until they find a price I might even consider paying lol aka $5 for a *really* good legendary item)
