    I never played Diablo 2 to endgame, but mid and low level uniques and set drops used to be way more common than they are now.

    It was fully possible to play D2 without ever having to trade or do runs in order to get items good enough. Diablo 3 on the other hand is built around the auction house. Once it gets starts to hard to play, you go to auction house and buy what you need to make it easier.

    In other words Blizzard makes lotsa money through a game mechanic that forces people to buy stuff.

    Diablo 3 is not built around the auction house. They've outright stated this isn't the case.

    The auction house is there for convenience.

    However, it's a little too convenient for my taste. When items drops now, it's not "Will it be good for my character", but more "Will this sell well on the auction house?".

    So then, instead of actually getting a drop and feeling awesome because you got lucky, you just buy it for a few thousand golds and use it.

    Were you able to get through the acts and difficulties without having to use the auction house?

    I haven't played in over a week and I haven't even thought about it until now.

    It's not like AH is a necessity before hell and inferno anyway. I remember in diablo 2 you had to farm the act bosses so much before even being able to progress to the next acts. The auction house just helps you progress whenever you're stuck.

    In my opinion Diablo 3 is more fun in the early and mid stages (I didn't really get to play diablo 2 endgame so much because it was too hard without the auction house in d3.)

    And trust me if you really want to grind mobs like you grinded act bosses in diablo 2 just play act 2+ inferno, have fun :)

    If you have friends who play it, you should definitely get it.

    I've had a super fun thyme with my friends in it.

    I don't get how some people have millions and millions of gold. I've been doing butcher runs all day and I can maybe earn 500k in 1day. Really slow.

    And theres no chance in hell(or inferno ) that I go for Act 2.

    That happened to one of my friend i game with. I usually play games with like 6 people and 1 of them didn't get the game because he was playing Tera at the time. Then he felt so left out he actually went to buy it.
    That is honestly the only reason I bought D3 cause all my friends played it a lot over skype and I felt kinda left out. I don't regret it though I do enjoy the game.

    If you look hard enough, there's always new places to farm or power level.

    Until of course the method is posted on YouTube so many times in a desperate scramble for subscribers everyone and their mother knows about it, then is inevitably patched/nerfed by Blizzard.

    Called it.

    D3 reeked of fad more than classic for me. Which is sad because I was really looking forward to it when it was first announced as being made. Doesn't help that half the sales are probably from mob-mentality of other people getting it because "its a game by Blizzard thats what PC gamers get" and not wanting to miss out.
