What's new OT thread?
What's new OT thread?
I'm a long time member of these forums and am trying to ascertain whether or not these forums are a viable outlet for my present and future Diablo 3 loot. My main character is level 54 presently and I hope to get to level 60 sometime next week. I use the in-game auction house but am limited in the number of items I can sell at a given time. Using this forum as an additional outlet would allow me to post more items at once and in item packs if I so choose. I have the additional support of the trade value forum. It will also allow me to barter which I cannot in-game. With all of the benefits in mind, I have a few questions I'd like to ask before I get to work posting:
1. I see a bunch of people improperly posting that the items will be sold here only. Poor spiffy is working his heart out trying to moderate all of the posts of people asking for cash and trading elsewhere. Are there any other long time members like myself who are interested in using these forums as outline above and are willing to follow the rules stated in the stickies? Heck even if you are a newer member but agree to follow the rules, please respond.
2. Is there any interest in trading leveling gear or should we stick to level 60 loot? I have 2 full tabs and 4 mules full of decent leveling rares and magical items that I'd love to offer up if there is interest. I can't be the only addicted slob with multiple toons here....LOL
3. Is there a market here for gems and other craftables? It makes no sense to combine gems as they are so cheap in the AH. That said, is anyone interested in buying leveling gems in bulk? We could trade multiple gems here below market price without the AH hastle of listing and waiting. Celtie (my wife) will be happy as she has several stacks of gems gathering dust in her stash. I don't give her all the RL gems she deserves but am making up for it in the virtual world....LOL
Thanks in advance for taking the time to read this post and reply.
1. I am definitely interested in trading on this forum and Hope that it is a viable option on top of the ah. I had a thread going before I went on vacation that was getting decent attention and plan to repost it when I get home. I also think that you probably won't get quite as much value here for an item as you could get on the ah as there is just simply more exposure there.
2. I think that this sight will most likely be used to trade for lower costing lvl 60-63 items and good stat 55-59 items with the best items being sold on the ah. As for lvling items, I think they will be bought on the ah as they are pretty cheap on there.
3. Can't answer this one as I have no idea.
I plan to trade here. However I just reached level 60 so I could not trade for any godly 30 million gold items. Actually I still can't. not enought gold. However I hope that people will list items other than perfect items, more in the decent catagory. 50k to 500k would suite me just fine.
however this is not a trade thread so I will merge this with the OT thread.
Spiffy, what class are you playing? I don't use up auction slots for any sales less than 1m, and usually trash stuff less than 500k. I can hold some stuff if you let me know what you're looking for.
I am playing a monk.
My dps os 11k and life is around 24 k in the process of finishing up Hell act 3 and 4
my res are around 200 and I think my plan is to stack cold res. to use with One with everything.
I have almost No mf and gf.
I will pm you my battletag if you want to meet up to inspect. feel free to pm me yours.
You're lucky then, you can have some of my hand me downs. I'm stacking cold res, and have some nice stuff that I've been cycling out. PM with BT sent.
Although I'm on the forums pretty much everyday, I'm finding it hard to determine what exactly I would like to use this trading forum for. If you are looking for a specific piece of gear, searching the AH is often the way to go since there are just so many more people using it and you have the ability to look very specific stats.
I applaud those who are willing to take screenshots and post the information in threads here, but I find that it's very rare that I'm actually interesting in a specific item. I guess I could try to get some bargains in order to resell, but I'm not looking on making a profit off the backs of members of these forums.
Most likely I will use the forums for a specific ISO... trying to obtain an item that isn't commonly available at the AH (this could be more common with PVP) or something that is very high value.
I'm not sure the forum has quite found it's happy place yet, but hopefully it will continue to get better in the future. I agree with the comment that spiffy has been hard at work policing the influx of newcomers who don't care to review the rules beforehand.
Omelet, from what I've seen, some people post some pretty good items on here, and I assume they go through the extra effort to avoid losing that 15% Blizzard takes on their sales. It adds up pretty quickly when you're making high value sales.
