I don't know a whole lot about the AH, but can you actually make money off it?
For example, could you sell a sword to somebody for $10 and have that money sent to a bank account or something?

Pretty much (though I think it goes through paypal?). There'll be fee from blizz and one from the handler, so it's not sure just yet how much of that 10$ you'd get in the end. Still, better than 0$ smile.gif

Yes you can make actual US dollars. I imagine you can just have it sent to a checking account or whatever but I don't know the details of it. I'm guessing you could sell x item for $10, Blizzard takes $1 or $2 as a fee and you wind up with like 8 bucks. Dunno if there will additional fees for sending money off to a bank account or for whatever else.

I imagine you'd have to spend a LOT of time on the game for there to be any substantial profit. Either that or be extremely lucky a lot of the time haha. I think the best time to try and make money off of the game will be when it is first released, before the market is flooded with items. It'll get harder and harder as time goes on.

Yes. You sync your paypal account with your battle.net account and you can transfer money into your "Battle.net Balance" which you can then use to buy Blizzard products from their store. If you sell a sword you find for 10 bucks on the RMAH then yes, you can have that money go to your paypal account after fees.

I like the idea of real money auction house, it is going to happen anyways. Hopefully it will be on par with League of Legends, and you can either spend the time to grind out the gold for the items or spend the money on them.

As for making money, if I was allowed to sell gold in World of Warcraft, I could have made enough money to make the game free to play by now. Similar to that game, there will be plenty of items that you won't want or won't be able to use so why not get money for them?

Yeah all this does is kill of the sometimes shady third party sites people were using for diablo 2. I don't really see any downside to the real money auction house.. unless the gov gets in a tissy about it.

the fact that anyone is willing to pay x dollars for an in game item that can be found themselves with a little dedication is ridiculous...i don't have a use for the auction house and i for sure won't be using it to purchase anything. i might sell something but realistically i'm probably going to use whatever i find for other chars...if i get doubles and can't use them directly i'll trade for other items. i don't understand how there's even a market for that kinda thing. i've got better things to spend my money on then an in-game imaginary weapon that i'm sure in a month or two after acquiring said item there will be a better one released in a patch or something. all the power to whoever wants to use it but i think it's ridiculous. teaching.gif

"A little dedication" is a very large understatement. There are far too many items in the game to just 'get lucky' and find that unique that you've been wanting forever.

Or let alone a magical item with the desired affixes.
