For today's post, let's talk about ways to improve making gold in Diablo 3.
A common problem, voiced by many emails that I get daily, is the idea
that "nothing sells." If we change that statement to "nothing you list
sells" things begin to get a little clearer. Two people actually said to
me yesterday that their particular regions of the world don't buy
diablo 3 items for money. When I rephrased their words to "nothing you
list in that region sells" their entire attitudes changed.
The problem isn't with everyone else not buying, it's with you not selling.
So how in the world do we change your bad selling habits and see some
money from the RMAH? We start with the gold auction house and
understanding supply versus demand.
There is a profitable "top" and "bottom" to every marketplace. The
top for Diablo 3 markets are high end items which are both rare and
sought after. The low end are low value items (value, not level) which
are both common and sought after. It's interesting to note that high
value items in Diablo 3 are mostly comprised of level 80 gear/weapons,
but most of the low value items also come from this category (instead of
low level like you'd expect). This is probably due to the fact that at
level 80 you're ready to improve your character beyond what's necessary
for suvival and just getting to the next level (which no longer
As long as there is demand, an item will sell. How much is the real
question, and that's determined by the strength of the demand compared
to its volume.
Since low quality items do sell, I want you to try your luck at this
market. We're talking 1,000 to 2,000 gold profits here. Items worth
pennies, if that. Believe it or not, they actually sell! That's right,
level 1 - 79 items worth less than 3,000 gold sell probably one
If Diablo 3 did not have a limit to the number of auctions you could
have, I would be listing thousands of these low profit, high turn over
So what are they? Every item category in the game, with a special emphasis on rings, amulets, and weapons.
You don't need to find super rare markets in order to make money in
this game. In most cases, they are surprisingly right in front of your
Focus on low value, high turn over items. This is your first step into a larger world!
