UnID's on Auction House.

What if Blizzard allowed unID's to be sold on the Auction House as commodities? Would this be a good thing? Would you want this? Would it be a bad thing? Discuss.

I agree w/ Eddizel but I think I'd also find myself "gambling" on mempos, lacunis, and the like just thinking 'oh, this is the one that actually has an amazing roll' - of course most likely to no avail but hey the 3 seconds it takes to identify would be exciting haha. I paid 3mill today for unid lacunis and they were, of course, terrible.

+1 to the idea.

Just to stop ppl trolling around all chat channels selling their unID legs. Or at least i can tell them to !@#$ and put it on the AH!

Good discussions so far, but I meant all unID's, not just legendaries. Or, at the very least, legendaries and Lvl. 63 rares.

Interesting idea. However, especially with this new change coming, if you couldn't see the iLvl they were gonna roll at...

Won't happen. It would be considered a form of gambling because the value of the item being sold is not known. You can sell them in trade chat or whatever because blizz can't control that really. As far as it being on the auction house, not a chance due to gambling laws. It's too much like selling lottery tickets. Besides if you really want to sell your un id'd items, there are forums on the web set up just for that very purpose.


This I found interesting. Can you clarify a few parts of that statement? Specifically, why would selling unID's on the AH be different from using a forum or trade chat? If Blizzard set up those avenues solely for selling unID's, why do they not violate gambling laws?

I think it has to do with not facilitating your "gambling" through an unqualified third party. You can play poker at your friend Frank's house, but if you play at Frank's work, he could get arrested or in the very least, fired, for gambling on someone elses property.

In the same way, you can buy unid's from trade or forums, because blizzard doesn't "condone" or facilitate that.

It's almost as if you guys haven't figured out any un'id on the Ah would have been scanned already and is total junk.


Profile'd

lol at scanned already. proves my point that newcomers do not know what they are saying about the game.

The sites I am talking about where you can trade un id items are not ran by Blizzard they are ran by 3rd party. That is why it happens there. It is outside of Blizzards control. If Blizzard set up, knowingly, an obvious search tab where you could buy and sell endless un id legendaries then they would be facilitating a form of illegal online gambling in effect. The third party sites are exempt because they exist as an as is forum and can not control people interacting and eventually agreeing on paying gold in game for an unidentified leg. Besides you can still sell un id in trade chat/general chat in game while not risking a ban. I realize it is complicated but this is just the reality of things.


And why they allow it in their own site? I hope you know there's a trading forum SC/HC on battle.net/d3

hmmm identify unid legendaries is considered gambling?

how about me spending 100k gold to craft at a "chance" to get something godly?

how about when we were kids and we bought a pack of Pokemon or WWE cards so we can get one of those high value foil cards?

I need to hear from the words of a qualified Lawyer and not some random people.
