And I was confused how the Authentication server status could kick me from the game when I was playing, and yet my buddy down the road continued the game, logged out, and back in again! Different provider of internet, but same area none the less. Once you are authenticated you should be able to stay on the game server until you log out. Poor design concept, from my point of view.

I have had minimal problems with the "always on" portion of Diablo 3, but these minor outages are the reason it should have an offline mode. In fact, all the self found people would dance for joy as you would not have AH access offline. And, since they made the console version offline-able it will always be thrown back in their face. I guess in the fine print of the software license it mentions that I am only leasing the software, I don't own it, so they can do what they want.

Diablo® III Auction House Update - Diablo III

Wow!!!! Didn't see a complete shutdown of the AH's coming. Guess they didn't want to split their player base between those who wanted to play mostly self found (and/or direct interplayer trading) and those who liked the AH.

IMO, it's a bit drastic. I would have preferred to see either just the RMAH gone, or the AH changed to just gems / crafting components.

Agree 100%

If the RMAH and gold buying went away I'd be pretty happy. Never was a fan of "pay to win."
Not sure of the logic on the gold AH going away too though. I enjoyed selling items I couldn't use and then taking the proceeds to buy something useful. Now it'll be back to the D2 situation where you have to sit in trade chat for hours on end, or looking at sites like d2jsp in order to buy upgrades.

Who knows though, maybe loot 2.0 will greatly increase the drop rate of things that are useful.

In other news, I just re-geared my monk for AR so I can free up that 3rd passive slot. Running zero life steal nirvana spec right now, relying on LpSS and globes to keep me alive. Much more interesting than the old cookie cutter spec, and the spike dmg output is insane!

Took a 20k dps hit to get there, but I figure I can re-roll some legendaries once the patch hits to make that back up.

Here's my girl now: Shyla - Nirvana | Monk | Diablo 3 DPS & EHP Calculator
Able to stomp MP8, and can do MP10 pretty comfortably too, just gotta be careful around RD packs as 1-2 bells on RD = insta-death.

If you want to get a bit of an idea of what it will look like without AH and have a current console you can download and play the console starter for free.

Folks are saying that the console's "loot 2.0 lite" itemization seems to be dropping decent upgrades for folks. That said... I don't know how far along folks are on the consoles, but the PC itemization issue didn't start rearing its ugly head until further on into inferno.
