When Blizzard announced that Diablo 3 would be getting an auction house feature, many had assumed it would similar to the auction house that can be found on Blizzard’s MMORPG, World of Warcraft. The exception would be that in the case of Diablo 3, users will have the option to either auction/buy items from the auction house using in-game gold or real life money. While this move might seem a little controversial and has its fans and detractors alike, one thing’s for sure is that it should cut down on the number of gold farmers.
In any case Blizzard has since come forward and detailed the auction house feature and announced the cut that they would be taking from all transactions. As far as equipment and armor is concerned, Blizzard will be taking a $1 cut from each auction. For commodities, Blizzard will be taking a 15% cut which includes sales of items such as gems, materials (used for crafting) and potions. While the game itself will not be region-locked, it should be noted that the auction house using real-life money will be limited to the region you’re playing in. Head on over to Blizzard’s website for the full run-down.
