World ^20 wd blog - Patch Day!

Ty! Not sure of my next weeks schedule yet, though I am leaning I going after patch for vampire bats
ya passed on that 25b+ EF. He twisted my words in jsp a couple of times and is too direct for my taste - might be a cultural thing. I get that he's trying to flip it but he's got to learn how to talk to people with more respect. That he is thinking of a 32b bin. No sir.

EDIT: there might be another one available! And at a much more reasonable price!

I can't wait for vampire bats
So now that you have amassed a small fortune what will you do now?

What else could you upgrade?

my plan is to maintain 300k and work on EHP. RIght now I have a bid of 20b on a 175int/134vit/80AR/9/50 WH but the bin is 30 so there is no guarantee there. I think I would rather armor instead of AR on my next WH, though. Low there. Also cheaper. Have some gloves coming my way later tonight at 12b that are all green (which is SO rare) and there are always room for improvement on bracers and a higher DPS EF.

Just about everything left will cost tens of billions now, aside from the bracers which I will continue to craft or otherwise cost 2-5b tops for top tier.

Working on my April sales report now. Incoming tonight.

hotdamn 18bil profit in one month from flipping?!?

Got to change your name to rakirothschildsmallah

in 2008 I developed a very successful system in a game. I applied the same principals to a business in real life and within 3months was making over $2k profit a day. Perhaps its time you take your auction house tycooning skills to the real world.

Raki, how much would it take to pry that ammy off your hands?
Prob about 12b. Though u would still have a tough time doing that if there isn't something out there comparable for me to replace it with.

If its something I am presently using then IF I sell I would charge top price. Otherwise it would be negotiable

Got a tip on a new ef for you. ZEE has one, but that stats are so close it probably isnt even worth it. its like 1227.? DPS w/ 90 crit. 19.1 fear. He just picked it up as was thinking of flipping, but didnt give me a price. If you want the link find me ingame, and ill see if hes on.
Hi! Prob not with those stats. Too close to mine. Besides I just bin'd a new WH with toddliang for 8b. Unless some stuff sells for me soon imma be broke, son, having spent 23b on a new ring, gloves and this WH in 24 hours lol

well, the PTR is down... looks like the patch is coming tomorrow :)

also diablofans.com reports heavy speculation that it is live tomorrow (or later today depending on your location)

LET'S GO!

EDIT: And the new improved Blood Ritual (prob in place of GF for solo play)

I don't need a LS weapon against RD elites anymore with Vampire Bats! Just tested! YAAAAAAAY!

EDIT: After a bit of testing (I need to log now) I think I will try...

Bears instead of widowmakers along with vampire bats in parties where mana isn't a problem along with GF instead of BR and change to my int/ar socket rare ring. But BR passive, bats and widowmakers for solo and BR instead of GF and use my zombie dog reduction SoJ over the rare ring.

so unbeknownst the drama of today's gold duping and AH crisis (I just came home from work), I sold a pair of lacuni prowlers (priced 25b) for 20b and my EF (priced 10b) for 15b.

1) I don't have a replacement weapon and it was impossible to ignore that offer, so there's that

2) the obvious question stands: what is going to happen with the gold I just acquired? If a roll back does happen... do I get my EF back? Does the gold disappear? This was an honest sale... will I fall victim?

EDIT: buyer's name is Principal#1918

All character profiles may(will) be reset to pre-1.0.8 patch launch. Worst and best case scenario.

that's what I speculated. But the people who put real money into it in the last few hours is gonna be the big issue. Forget my billions, we are talking about cash. Will blizzard refund all RMAH transactions? Find all the culprits and perma-ban them? Truly fix the gold dupe bug?

What happens now may be the tipping point of this entire game... and may set the precedent for real money auction houses in every game in the future.

The video of him buying and duping and exploiting is being replayed right now on that stream. It's freaking insane

@Rakimallah
I was going to ask u about ur hot EF and saw the gold dupe report....
That's crazy....
They should take out and ban those dupers now.
This is the worst screw-up I have seen so far....
