Over the last few days, we've seen a lot of requests from players for us to make improvements to the auction house. We've also seen questions regarding what, if any, changes are being made to the AH in 1.0.4. While we've already talked about many of the updates we have planned, we know some players may have missed those discussions. So, rather than make you wait for the patch notes, we've put together a list of everything that's changing in 1.0.4 for you below.
Take a look:
In addition to these improvements, we're also fixing several bugs with the auction house UI and functionality (many of which you reported on these forums).
And there you have it! Please note that this isn’t a preview, and that the above list represents every change we are making to the auction house in 1.0.4. While the list is exhaustive for this patch, it's definitely not the end of the road -- we still have additional improvements planned for 1.1.0 and for the long-term. We don't have a lot of juicy details to share right now on that front, but we'll be sure to provide more information as development continues.

Could you please clarify:
So the item compare tooltip will ONLY come up in recommended items page, but not when you're searching for items through filters and such?
Seems like a pointless add-on unless it works with all filtered pages, as no one uses the recommended items page...

I can't believe the game shipped without this. Finally, so many painful hours trying to find legendary items with my preferred stats will no longer be wasted!
Lots of good changes here.
Will we be able to see +/- life, +/- damage, +/- protection comparisons in the AH now to what we have equipped?
