I wonder how many people will try to play D3 and turn it into their sole source of income. I have a feeling that people think items are going to be sold for crazy amounts of money. I only expect this to be the case when the game initially launches. After the prison workers and rest of the general players flood the market, I wouldn't be surprised if the high end items sell for $1 to $2. I know I will be happy if I can make up the cost of buying D3. If not, oh well wink.gif.

There will be the elite of elite items that will always sell for more. For how much I don't know but I bet there will always be items selling for more than $10 or $15 even years after release. This is mostly because of ladder resets. In DII, after all these (12 I think?) years, items get all their value back after a ladder reset. Its another one of those things that add tons of replay value.

There are too many variable right now to guess at how real money prices will work, so I probably shouldn't speculate too much. We need to get an idea of how "rare" rare items are. If some items are as rare as D2 items, then yes you might get those $10 to $15 prices. Then again, I don't think you will ever see one of those items drop. I think you will have a better chance making money by manipulating the real money AH. Heck something I didn’t think about till now, if Uber Godly Face Smasher item sells for $5 each and has a high demand..... spend some real money to buy every single one on the AH and reprice them all for $10. If they are that rare, you shouldn't have too much competition (or have to buy very many). So, yes I guess I can see artificial inflation causing prices to be higher than I expect. In the end, it’s all about what suckers are willing to pay biggrin.gif.

If you have a D2 style reset (char still playable but not on ladder), I can see a lot of upset people complaining about spending X amount of money only to "lose" it all by not being able to play on ladder. So, this will be interesting to see how they handle it or if they will even have a system like it.

I was thinking the exact same thing after my last post, that I shouldn't speculate on prices because I really haven't got a clue. You're right that we ourselves might never see one of those items drop, but other people will. And as far as spending real money, forget that. I will at least trade and/or sell my items to get other items. Like someone else said one of my goals in DIII will be to recoup the money I spent on the game, anything beyond that is gravy.

I would imagine that DIII will have similar ladder resets as DII, its a lot of fun when you know that everyone is starting completely from scratch again and that items got all their value back. And let the people cry if they spent actual money out of their pocket on a ladder item then the ladder resets. I'm sure this happened all the time in DII anyhow.

I'm not totally sure how ladder resets work, (I only played D2 online shortly after release) but if it involves wiping characters...I don't think you will see them. Not in the first 10 years of the game.

Won't see what? Elite items?

Basically when you create a new B.net character in DII you can choose whether it is ladder or non-ladder. If you pick ladder and they reset it your char(s) become non-ladder. So it is a completely fresh start from that point until the next ladder reset which I think can span anywhere from 6 months to over a year. That is a lot of time to trade and sell items, including elites.
