Gear Strategy: +EXP% Equipment in T6 vs. Grifts
A subtext to all of the recent posts about party sharing exp leeches is the changes to how +EXP gear in the current Patch 2.2. Which sorts of +EXP buffs are additive and which are multicative, and when/how these apply, is different than in the past, and it makes a big difference. A guy breaks […]
Diablo 3 in China: Cash for Stash Details Revealed
Blizzard announced the real money features of the Diablo 3 Chinese version some months ago, doing it preemptively before (as they said) fans could datamine it and speculate that it was coming to all realms. The devs have talked about the features since then, stressing that they didn’t want to make D3 a “pay to […]

Changes to Auction House Coming

Posted 2 Aug 2012 by

Community Manager DiabloWikiLylirra posted earlier today saying that we will get some well sought after changes to the Auction House. Many of you, me included wanted more slots for the affixes filter in the DiabloWikiAuction House, especially when we have many items with 5+ affixes. So Blizzard is bumping it up from 3 to 6 slots also the minimum value field gets an upgrade from max value of 3 numbers to 5 numbers.

Thanks for the feedback! We’re looking to bump the number of Preferred Stats slots from 3 up to 6. We’re also looking to bump the number of digits in the “Min Value” window from 3 to 5 (so you can search for Preferred Stat values higher than “999”).

In other RMAH news, they are looking at adding the ability to cancel an auction if it has had no bid and this could appear in v1.0.4.

We like this solution also. We definitely want to provide players with the option to cancel an auction (at any point after it’s posted) so long as it does not have any bids. Right now, we’re looking at this for 1.0.4, but that of course may change depending on implementation and testing.

Finally, on the timing of auctions, it doesn’t sound like Blizzard plan on letting players set the timing of auctions, not in the near future at least.

You mean being able to select the duration of the auction? We definitely have seen this feedback (and appreciate it), but we don’t have any plans currently.

Can you confirm whether you will allow us to see stats on items sold? Or prices we list things at?

You mean stats of items in the Completed tab? If so, yes — that is functionality we’re looking to add. We’re also looking to make it so that you can see the listing price of unsold and cancelled items in the Completed tab, as well.

(Not sure if that answered your last question completely, but I still felt it was relevant information to share.)
