    Re: Is AH mandatory?

    It depends on what objective you've set for yourself.

    Re: Is AH mandatory?

    Answering myself now after I've played for a month and got to 200 DPS using AH.

    Yes, AH is mandatory. Self-found in DIII feels like "only pickup whites" kind of restriction in Diablo 2. You will be far from decent, to the worse. Too bad, using AH killed the game for me. And there is no incentive to play self-found because it feels pointless. So here it is, putting it away until they fix things.

    Switch to Hardcore MP10 self-found and you got yourself a challenge

    Re: Is AH mandatory?

    No, I still can have a challenge on my barb, but I just don't like the feel where the game went with this. It all became about farming gold and getting to ridiculously scaled MP settings where dropped loot just isn't relevant anymore.

    It's not about challenge so to speak, it's about a feel of fortune, and the satisfaction that this fortune gives. When you find items yourself, you spin this wheel of luck all the time and sometimes it smiles at you and you find a huge upgrade, and you feel decent and great. In Diablo III, though, it doesn't feel like that when self-found. Stuff you find always makes you feel like an underdog at best. That's what's frustrating. Add a terrible item-only led character progression and this becomes really bad.

    I think.. I'll still give it a shot one more self-found time. I just haven't decided where to play, on my SC realm where I have all leveled up stash and crafters and millions of gold. Or on EU realm as fresh start. Or HC for that matter. The latter one actually is not my cup of tea, because I'm a terribly careless person.

    Honestly, try HC self found. You'll find that most players are more realistically geared, meaning that you won't feel like you're lagging behind as badly. If you do end up using the AH, you'll notice almost right away that it is quite different than the SC AH. No RMAH, good items getting cycled out due to deaths, etc. It's just an entirely different economy. I know you're not thrilled with the AH, but the HC AH feels a lot more like what the devs must have been expecting the AH to be before release. It's not perfect, but it's a hell of a lot better than the SC AH.

    While I'm not thrilled about permanently losing chars, HC is just so much better in so many ways. The different atmosphere changes everything. Just give it a try. You're getting close to quitting the game, what could it hurt?
