Diablo III’s real-money auction house is live

Now if you so choose, you can spend your lovely paychecks for items to don your Diablo III character in (well at least for North America). Yup, you can purchase this lovely 279.6 DPS spear for $250. $250 is the maximum bid you are allowed to place on items and with each successful auction Blizzard will take $1 and the minimum requirement is $1.25. In addition, any money you make and wish to place not for you Battle.net account balance, then you are subjected to a 15% withdrawal fee. If you do happen to use the auction house and make some dough, well you can use your account balance to pay for your WoW subscription or pets or the purchase of other Blizzard games through your Battle.net account. There is no idea when the real-money auction house will hit other regions yet. If you wish to use this new feature, you are required to have a Battle.net authenticator associated to your account, obviously for security purposes. Check out the the official Diablo III site for more information.
