The best way to farm iLvl 63 weapons, items and gear by using geometry exploits
A week ago, I posted an article on farming elite mobs in Inferno, act 3 using crappy gear. Doing it this way would allow you to change in to your magic find gear before killing the leader of the pack. All without taking any damage, since you were using geometry exploits.

The D3 AH gold dupe may or may not have worked
Yesterday the Diablo 3 community was whipped in to a frenzy by rumors of a working Diablo 3 AH gold dupe. People were getting scammed right and left and hundreds of billions of gold had been made illegitimately….supposedly.
I say supposedly, because this may have been a very elaborate hoax by members of the D3 community. Some say Kripparian did it as a media stunt to draw viewers to his channel. Others say that it was done to make people aware of how easy it is to manipulate the community. Others yet again say that it was done to force a rollback of the servers. We’ll never find out, but it did make the day more interesting!
But one thing is for sure, drawing attention to it on this level, is certainly the best way to get a working D3 gold dupe hotfixed fast!

The US RMAH is live, but the EU RMAH is delayed. The new launch date for the EU AH is now june 15th. The first reports coming from people that have used the RMAH are positive and of course people are shocked at the pricesthey can sell their items for.

This is how you dupe gold on the D3 AH
With the recent discovery of how to cancel your auctions ahead of time, I really didn’t think more of that. Sure it was nice that you could cancel your auctions ahead of time, but the rabbit hole couldn’t possibly go deeper….except it could. Very deep.

The launch of the Diablo 3 real money auction house is imminent
Blizzard have seen their share of problems with the game: a rocky launch, unstable servers, commodity auctions taken down and then put back up, albeit in a slightly buggy state, so the fact that the RMAH would launch any time soon hasn’t even been an option in my mind. So the fact that Blizzard actually “plan” on launching these next few days, really took me by surprise!

Diablo 3 Jewelcrafting costs for perfect square gems and above
*update aug 2012* Since this article was published, a lot has changed in the gem market. You can no longer reliably make money combining gems, but you might be able to make more money combining gems, than selling the flawless square ones on their own. Read my updated article for a more recent look at the diablo 3 gem market*update*
I did some number crunching this morning and the results I came up with were pretty interesting. At first I thought people were selling at a loss, but once again economic theory came through. Turns out you CAN actually make money by selling gems….you just need to be smart about it!
