Diablo® III

1.0.4 Auction House Updates

Here is hoping the 'Average Damage' field is searchable for Mojo's and Sources.. Any confirmation on that would be grand.

Blizzard had to make gold cheaper per stack, so they could make some money off all the botters they have playing this game that they wont ban. These botters just sell on websites, now they can sell on diablo 3!

Is there going to be limit on cancelling auctions or can everyone keep canceling & undercutting until items are worth nothing?

Players can now search for stats on Legendary items! Yay!


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?


Yay!

Auctions can be sorted by time left .... ZOMG

here goes my entire sniping technique to the gutter, i used to look ONLY at items listed as 1d11h / 1d12h to find good items for cheap prices and snipe them before a bot does , now me and every single bot on planet europe will be able to do just that with so much ease ...

prepare for either bidding wars on 2 minz left items with no buyouts OR 1d12h items which are best bang for buck will be sniped faster then u can say jack fockin robinson

Item Compare tooltips have been added to the Recommended Items page.


I'd also like clarification on this. I would agree that this is not useful since majority of folks don't even bother using the recommended items page. Rather, would be more useful on searched items.

Other than that, the overall changes sound great!

Good Morning,, Thanks for the update on the AH changes. Really looking forward to a few of them. Also, as a suggestion, is it possible to add an area on the search tab to drop in your item? That way to directly compare what is on the AH vs what you are trying to sell. It would create a better economy on the AH to what items are really worth in value.

Another thing I would like to point out and ask, as it may be off subject but related because it does determine the value of an item, I dont believe many people understand fully the effect of stats on a weapon. Say ie myself whenever I see an item with str as an affix as well as my desired stats I see "Extra armor" where other see "Junk." Maybe there can be someway to better teach, explain, whatever verb you'd like to use, the community about each stat and the way it works.

Stat increases which come from slotted gems will no longer be factored in when searching for equipment. Instead, your search criteria will only take into account the base stat values for an item.

Finally, I got fed up with searching for gear to only come up with mediocre items because someone stacked really high level gems on it.

How about not having to wait 2 days to receive an item in the RMAH?

Thanks for the update, these are some great quality-of-life changes that will streamline the AH experience.

I have a question, though, for Lylirra.

Could you please clarify the statement "We've increased the maximum stack size of gold per listing from 100,000 to 1,000,000. The current minimum listing price will remain the same per stack."?

Does this mean that one can now list 1,000,000 gold for the minimum price of 0.25?

Fantastic!!

Will this retrofit to items already sold? Will I able to see the stats of items sold pre 1.04?

I think that stems from allowing all the "red tape" to be cleared with your bank or whoever you have a card with. It's no different than buying things off of Amazon, I have to wait a day or two before my order is verified before it ships.

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:

General Improvements:
  • Players can now cancel their auctions at any point so long they do not have any active bids on them (it will still take five minutes for a listed auction to become searchable, however).
  • We've increased the maximum stack size of gold per listing from 100,000 to 1,000,000. The current minimum listing price will remain the same per stack.
  • We've added description text to several error messages. We've also improved several existing descriptions so that they more clearly describe why you've encountered an error.


Search Improvements:
  • We're upping the allowed number of "Preferred Stats" per search from 3 to 6.
  • We're upping the number of digits you can enter in the "Min Value" field for equipment searches from 3 to 5 (i.e. you can now search for values > 999).
  • We've replaced “Minimum Damage” with “Average Damage” as a searchable stat, which can be calculated as follows: (Min Damage + Max Damage) / 2. So, for example, searching for an Average Damage of 12 will find an item with 10-14 damage, 12 Minimum damage, or 24 Maximum damage.
  • Stat increases which come from slotted gems will no longer be factored in when searching for equipment. Instead, your search criteria will only take into account the base stat values for an item.
  • Armor, DPS, Buyout, and Time Left columns are now sortable columns in the Search tab.


UI Improvements:
  • The Auctions tab and Completed tab will now refresh whenever one of your items has been purchased.
  • Whenever an auction expires or is cancelled, the listing price of that item will now display in the Completed tab.
  • Tooltips have been added for items in the Completed tab (which means you'll be able to see the stats of the items you've purchased or sold, as well as items which failed to sell or were cancelled).
  • Tooltips have been added for commodities.
  • Item Compare tooltips have been added to the Recommended Items page.


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).

Bug Fixes:
  • Auction house filters are no longer case-sensitive.
  • Players can now search for stats on Legendary items! Yay!
  • The Recommended Items page will now display quivers for demon hunters even if you have a two-handed ranged weapon equipped.
  • Witch doctor's Corpse Spider bonus is now listed when searching for mojos.
  • And, last but not least, we've fixed several issues with affixes not displaying correctly or being unavailable for equipment searches:
    • "Attack Speed" is now a searchable affix for quivers
    • Items with the "Level Requirement Reduced" affix will now properly appear in search results when specifying the level range
    • Searches will now properly filter results according to the set Minimum and Maximum values for"Life per Spirit Spent"


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


I didn't even read everything.. but..

We're upping the allowed number of "Preferred Stats" per search from 3 to 6.


That. That's enough to make me EFFING HAPPY! >_< lol. But the rest are really welcome. We've been clamoring for this since launch.

BUT WAIT! I do hope that those AH Bugs won't pop out again..

I second this,, it gets really frustrating to save up gold, when you hardly make any, then go and spend it on an item thinking its an upgrade which turns out to either, a) Upgrade very minimally or b) Not an upgrade at all. I just commented saying not every player understands each stat well and its actually quite difficult to understand the whole dps calculations that goes on. Clearing it up or making it easy and showing the change in stats directly from the AH would make it just wonderful! :D
