If you gave up on Diablo III, it could be a good time to take another look -- particularly if you didn't give the console versions a try.
The game's new 2.0.1 patch has arrived in preparation of the upcoming Reaper of Souls expansion, and it brings with it a number of enhancements. Most notable among these is the Loot 2.0 system introduced in the well-received console versions of the game, which makes loot distribution and collection a lot more interesting and fair.
However, there's an issue. Also introduced in Patch 2.0.1 is the concept of "Bind on Account" items, which immediately lock themselves to your account when you pick them up, making them untradeable. There's a get-out clause if you accidentally loot something when playing with others -- you can trade it with one of your party members from the time of the kill for up to two hours -- but otherwise, it's a case of finders keepers.
Here's the problem: players are reporting that Blizzard isn't stopping Bind on Account items from being listed to the in-game auction house. If someone buys one of these, their money goes to the seller, but they're then left with an item they're not able to use. Unfortunate.
Given that the auction house is set to close down in the next few weeks -- the controversial feature was never received all that well by the player base, and the console versions managed just fine without it -- it's possible Blizzard may not bother to fix this problem at all before the service shuts down, though it would be most unlike them not to fix a major flaw like this. Either way, if you're jumping back into Diablo III for the new patch or expansion, be sure not to list Legendary Bind on Account items on the auction house -- and be sure not to waste your money on buying them!
