I'm trying to decide how much to pay for a weapon for my HC Monk. You don't necessarily have to play HC to voice your thoughts, though if you do have HC specific insights that's great.
For reference, I've spent a total of 30M on this guy so far, and the weapon cost 4.8M (buyout)
I feel like I've finally hit the inflection point in the HC market, where gear to improve your Monk jumps in price. In the SC market, though, when most people feel they've hit that point, I find that they're not looking hard enough. The SC market is fairly "smooth" in my opinion, and although gear gets more and more expensive, there are always deals and prices don't really "jump" at any point. I haven't really gotten to the top of the SC market, though, so maybe there it's different?
The HC market is so comparatively sparse, I'm not so sure about it. I have a hard time even finding an upgrade at ANY price sometimes.
Anyway, I just came into about 50M to 60M gold. Do you think I'm really at a point where prices jump? Given what you know about the HC market (even if all you know now is how much I spent: 30M total, 5M in the weapon), how much would you pay for a new weapon that:
1. was a dagger or IAS fist/sword
2. had a socket instead of CD
3. had the same stats as my current weapon but 50 more DPS.
