Diablo III's real money auction house launched in the US yesterday, and so far, direct exposure doesn't seem to be causing connection issues, account hacks, additional limb growth, or premature death in my race of designated Blizzard guinea pigs. So, assuming that holds up (and I'd be willing to bet my third arm it totally will), it's headed to EU regions on Friday - as spotted on an in-game prompt by Eurogamer. Originally, Blizzard's officially sanctioned solution to gold farming was slated for roll out on June 13.
So yes, wallets and/or pitchforks at the ready. If you keep both in the same place, that's probably very painful for you and confusing for others. At any rate, make sure to read about how the RMAH works here (beware: transaction fees) and procure an Authenticator. So then, many of us dream of being reality-bending wizards or bone-shattering barbarians, but who's chomping at the bit to become the auction house baron who takes a small fortune from reality-bending wizards and bone-shattering barbarians?
