People did this when game went live because that was the only way to play. Thats why they all quit because gearing up on drops you get and not using the AH is impossible. I farmed daily probably 7-8 hours until RMAH was released and finally was forced to buy gold because I couldnt even beat Act 1, even in a 4 man party Butcher wiped us over and over. No one told me the only correct class to play at launch was Demon Hunter. I never once found a single drop that I could use as a Monk and pretty much all of them were crappy level 53-57 items anyways. Also I cant really call it farming because I died to 80% of elite packs because again no one told me the only correct class to play was DH.
Now you can build a full set of gear to farm Act 3 for the price of what a 1-2 upgrades used to cost. If there was never a RMAH or nerfs I would still be in Act 1, 7 months later, beating my face against the wall.
