As of now, I've made around ~$275 (although ~$230 after the cut) selling things here and there. What have you guys been selling? Have they been mostly smaller items, or huge-ticket items?

#2 Posted by BongChilla (204 posts) -

I have made $0. But I have only started playing Nightmare so my items are not in high demand.

I thought I'd try it out but I'll probably leave it alone soon. Seems really weird to me.

#3 Posted by SpunkyHePanda (1591 posts) -

Wow, $275? I gotta get in on this action.

#4 Posted by Cataphract1014 (1313 posts) -

$5

#5 Posted by ichthy (481 posts) -

About $45, mostly just selling cheap items. All of my good stuff is equipped. :(

#6 Posted by SuperWristBands (2266 posts) -

Man, I didn't think it'd be this easy. I was gonna get my self a copy of Diablo 2 and Lord of Destruction for $20 and I assumed that would take a while. Once Blizzard removes the parental controls from my account that were never setup or even do anything right now aside from lock me out of the RMAH I'mma get my copy of D2!

Zero dollars and zero cents. Why does Izzucob have to be such an awful legendary?

#8 Posted by jakob187 (21642 posts) -

I haven't started throwing anything up there yet, but my brother has already pulled about $25. He's happy because it will pay for his WoW subscription (one addiction feeding another, eh?).

I just picked up a Dead Man's Legacy last night with a decent roll on it. Lots of dexterity, vit, attack speed, and a bonus to Cluster Shot.

ProTip: Battle.net Funds are Non-Transferable

EVERY TIME you make a sale make sure PayPal is selected from that little drop down menu. It DEFAULTS to transferring funds into your Battle.net account! I didn't know their funds are non-transferable! I lost my $70 I made and was forced to put in back into the AH since I have no interest in other Blizzard products.

However, if you have access to 2 Battle.net accounts you can launder the money through AH.

#10 Posted by Ares42 (2576 posts) -

@Crispy: You mean you've made $192 and given ActiBlizzard up to $82, right ? As long as that money sits on your Battle.net account you have jack shit to show for it.

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

What about future Diablo III expansions?

...? The PayPal fee is ~$41, while I retain $230-ish. The fee itself only applies when using PayPal, so the money is in PayPal, not a Blizzard account. If you're using the Battle.net account payment option, there is no fee.

You could probably sell it for quite a bit if the melee damage reduction on it is high (read: above 16%) with some good stats for a barb (str/vit/high AR). I wish I hadn't sold mine.

The Battle.net account payment option DOES have a fee. I know this because my brother knows this.

The fee for Battle.net is $1.00, so it's basically negligible.

I've made 15 bucks so far. My goal is to make enough to buy Mist of Pandaria which is very feasible even with just selling middling rares.

#18 Posted by Ares42 (2576 posts) -

@Crispy: nevermind me, thought the 15% sale fee applied to both AH.

#19 Posted by yoshisaur (2646 posts) -

$13 so far, one Legendary.

Keep in mind that you can't use your battle net balance to pay for your WoW subscription. You can however use it to buy Blizzard's games, expansions, and WoW character services such as faction/race/appearance/name/server changes. However, you can sell D3 items on the auction house through paypal which CAN be used to pay for your WoW subscription or...anything else obviously. So be sure choose the appropriate option in the drop down window while selling on the auction house. Here's a faq.

It seems Blizzard has finally outdone Valve's war-themed hat simulator.

#23 Posted by Grillbar (1797 posts) -

i have made 0$ since its not released before the 15th for some reason in Europe.

GREAT JOB

#24 Posted by Diakiha (17 posts) -

Still need to try hard

#25 Posted by Giefcookie (584 posts) -

Sitting on a few items waiting for it to roll out in the EU. Going to need to push further in inferno before I sell the good stuff I'm actually using.

#28 Posted by TehBuLL (593 posts) -

Woo! I've got 25cents! Selling garbage.

#29 Posted by Cameron (595 posts) -

I can't believe anyone is paying real money for loot. I guess I should start trying to sell some stuff.

#30 Posted by Robot_Moses (110 posts) -

Four dollars

#31 Posted by uniform (1832 posts) -

$0. I feel like I'm missing out on something big here. I play the game a few hours or so after work, I have some decent rare/legendary items sitting in my bank collecting dust. I could be making money playing a game I enjoy. The thing is, I have a feeling the B/O prices we're seeing will be short-lived, especially as soon as the new patch releases. That said, people are in fact paying these extreme prices to get items they desire. I think I'll set it up tonight.

#32 Posted by valrog (3671 posts) -

If you decide to keep the money on Battle.net, can you for example pay World of Warcraft subscription with it? Or is that money only possible for buying games?

Not that I'm planning on using RMAH, just... Academic interest.

#33 Edited by Cincaid (2953 posts) -

@valrog: You can only use the money on your battle.net account to buy new games, or spend it on the RMAH in Diablo 3. You can't renew your subscription in WoW with it. That's what I've been told, at least.

Also, as someone else pointed out, once the money is on your battle.net account they're there for good. You can't transfer money from your battle.net account to your PayPal account.

#34 Edited by plop1920 (448 posts) -

25 dollars, sold a really good necklace for tanks

I have a couple of items still up, aiming to recoup the cost of diablo 3

#35 Posted by YI_Orange (1128 posts) -

How do you guys have any idea what to price stuff at?

#36 Posted by Savior82 (28 posts) -

Nothing, and it'll remain that way. I live in EU and play on US servers since that's where most of my friends play and Blizzard doesn't let me use RMAH there.

#37 Posted by tunaburn (1886 posts) -

i wish i could sell stuff there. but this game is so boring to me. i cant get out of nightmare cuz i keep falling asleep trying to play.

$0. I don't have any high level inferno gear to sell, just Act 1 trash.

Shit... what did you sell?

Zunimassa's Vessel for $72 (I could have gotten more for that, but it was one of the first items I posted), my bow for $180 (which I, again, could have gotten more for), and a few other rares here and there for mostly $10 each.

It kind of sucks farming without my bow now, but I've gotten used to it. Just takes longer.

#41 Edited by zaglis (909 posts) -

At first I wanted to say - who the fuck is buying these items for real money
But then I remembered that someone sold an unusual hat that does absolutely nothing for 1500$ in a first person shooter

#42 Posted by Butano (1728 posts) -

Augh, my internet connection has been terrible these past few weeks, so I haven't been playing any D3 for a while. At what point are you allowed to sell items on the RMAH? Is it just legendary items?

#43 Posted by Imsorrymsjackson (855 posts) -

@jakob187: The money can't be used to pay for WoW subscriptions from the Battle.net wallet. Hope he has a Paypal to transfer it out to.

#44 Posted by lightsoda (540 posts) -

I can't fathom why anyone would pay hundreds for an ingame item...rich bitches.

#45 Posted by RIDEBIRD (1230 posts) -

Holy FUCK, no idea that it would work so well

#46 Posted by SJSchmidt93 (4884 posts) -

Not a whole lot, I put a chest piece on for $2, then had second thoughts and pulled it, which later sold for 1m on the gold AH. At this point, I think I need gold more anyway.

#47 Posted by TehBuLL (593 posts) -

@SJSchmidt93: sell it for real money...that is what they want......just do it...

#48 Posted by Jayzilla (2555 posts) -

People paying real money for fake items that they don't actually ever "own"? I am actively praying for the end of the world now.

Pics or it didnt happen. No way people are spending that much money on in game items

People do spend that kind of money.
