1353 dps / 296 int / 191% CD / 5.8% LS / Socket
Found a similar one in AH going for over 170m, and confirmation from the WD community that it could go for over 200m easy. O.o
So, around 3:00 a.m., I listed it with a starting bid of 125m. Never...ever...list such important transactions when you're dizzy tired...
Because you might do something stupid and tab down to include 125m as buyout price...as I did. *facepalm* I checked my zeros, double checked, and then counted them again for a third time. I went to bed content that all was well, happily thinking I would have bids galore in the morning. I woke up this morning with the smart idea that I would also post in the trade forums. Then I log on. And it's gone. For 125m (before Blizz's cut). That's when I realized my mistake. Ugh... I could've started drinking. I almost cried... Lol.
It was sickening to know I had made such a miserably stupid mistake. And it's not even about the gold loss...not entirely. It's mostly about having the very rare GREAT drop, and doing something pretty stupid with it. !!!!!
That's when I had my next realization: I have far too much time and emotion invested in this game. I'm a mother of two, with a life not at all conducive to the amount if time, energy, and heart I've dedicated to Diablo. I'm not even a gamer. Yet I have almost 400 hours on my monk, play till 3 a.m. (sleep is sacrificed in the name of Ytar...not to mention art and laundry...), and somehow find even *more* time to make it to the forums??
<sigh> ... I'm sure that at some point today, things will 'click', and it will all make sense again...I'll have every illogical motive I have manifested for my incessant playing justified once again, and I'll be right back to slaying demons tonight.
But for now, I spill all to my friendly monk community. Thanks for being here. :)
tl;dr: This is a ranting, soul-bearing, chick flick.
