    This is just brilliant! At same time this option is a big step to end for good the gold farmers (the websites will no longer exist, but the farmers will probably be using the in-game AH), this is a way for Blizzard to make a large amount of money without the use of a Blizzard store.

    I'm unsure of how I will like this but I don't see why people are so quick to boycott D3 now. If you don't like the feature then don't use it, doesn't sound like it is a huge game changer.

    ...like it is in D2 now? There's no item you cannot buy with 'forum gold' and similar c..p.

    Awesome idea as long there aren't items that can ONLY be sold for real life money.

    Can we buy gold from the currency-based auction house?
    Players will be able to buy and sell gold through the currency-based auction house at whatever the current market price is, as established by the player community
    Well thats a field day for gold sellers then.....that's just stupid... be ready to see increase in hacking attempts and scams

    Exactly, spending more money outside of game giving an advantage in game is what they should have avoided. Cosmetics ok, advantages over people that can't spend money no.

    Moderated how? This is a legit "pay real money to be better" scheme, something I hate in games.

    If you're not good at reading, consider the following:This makes selling gold for real-world money, something they've been condemning for years, legal... But only now because they get a cut of your profits.

    And the complainers come hording in. Please don't complain if you don't even have a clue how it works. Read the FAQ's first, all of it before you complain.Spending real-life money could give you an advantage, but it is NOT micro-transactions. There isn't an unlimited amount, only supply on demand.

    I highly doubt this will make it past beta. If it does I won't be buying it. Not going to support the selling of in-game power.

    This pretty much.

    Trading items for money was a large part of Diablo 2 and people are still buying D2 items for real money at the moment im typing this. Blizzard knows that they really cant do much to stop this from happening, So why not take advantage of it? The player gets a safer environment to spend their real money on in game items that were obtained by other players and not posted by blizzard, and Blizzard gets a portion of the cash from each of these transactions.

    I see no problem with this, trading RL money for items was going to happen in Diablo 3 anyways, you would have to be a fool to think otherwise. So whats the harm in Blizzard making it easier and safer for you to do so?

    And to the people saying "Pay to Win". Since Gold is able to be sold as well, whats stopping you from selling your gold to pay for an item with the money you just made from selling the gold? This is no different than paying a large amount of WoW gold for an item on the auction house, its just theres a few extra steps involved.

    I am not sure how I really feel about this...blizzard hasn't made me raise a brow in a long time, and not internet speaking, I mean really irl I raise a brow so high, the rock was like.."Nice." But seriously I am kind of disgruntled by this.

    No one gives a shit if blizzard is making money over it, they care about giving an advantage in game to people that are willing to blow 10 extra (insert currency).
