[D3] 1.0.4 Auction House Updates

Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Over the last few days, we've seen a lot of requests from players for us to make improvements to the auction house. We've also seen questions regarding what, if any, changes are being made to the AH in 1.0.4. While we've already talked about many of the updates we have planned, we know some players may have missed those discussions. So, rather than make you wait for the patch notes, we've put together a list of everything that's changing in 1.0.4 for you below.

Take a look:

General Improvements:
•Players can now cancel their auctions at any point so long they do not have any active bids on them (it will still take five minutes for a listed auction to become searchable, however).
•We've increased the maximum stack size of gold per listing from 100,000 to 1,000,000. The current minimum listing price will remain the same per stack.
•We've added description text to several error messages. We've also improved several existing descriptions so that they more clearly describe why you've encountered an error.

Search Improvements:
•We're upping the allowed number of "Preferred Stats" per search from 3 to 6.
•We're upping the number of digits you can enter in the "Min Value" field for equipment searches from 3 to 5 (i.e. you can now search for values > 999).
•We've replaced “Minimum Damage” with “Average Damage” as a searchable stat, which can be calculated as follows: (Min Damage + Max Damage) / 2. So, for example, searching for an Average Damage of 12 will find an item with 10-14 damage, 12 Minimum damage, or 24 Maximum damage.
•Stat increases which come from slotted gems will no longer be factored in when searching for equipment. Instead, your search criteria will only take into account the base stat values for an item.
•Armor, DPS, Buyout, and Time Left columns are now sortable columns in the Search tab.

UI Improvements:
•The Auctions tab and Completed tab will now refresh whenever one of your items has been purchased.
•Whenever an auction expires or is cancelled, the listing price of that item will now display in the Completed tab.
•Tooltips have been added for items in the Completed tab (which means you'll be able to see the stats of the items you've purchased or sold, as well as items which failed to sell or were cancelled).
•Tooltips have been added for commodities.
•Item Compare tooltips have been added to the Recommended Items page.

In addition to these improvements, we're also fixing several bugs with the auction house UI and functionality (many of which you reported on these forums).

Bug Fixes:
•Auction house filters are no longer case-sensitive.
•Players can now search for stats on Legendary items! Yay!
•The Recommended Items page will now display quivers for demon hunters even if you have a two-handed ranged weapon equipped.
•Witch doctor's Corpse Spider bonus is now listed when searching for mojos.
•And, last but not least, we've fixed several issues with affixes not displaying correctly or being unavailable for equipment searches:
+"Attack Speed" is now a searchable affix for quivers
+Items with the "Level Requirement Reduced" affix will now properly appear in search results when specifying the level range
+Searches will now properly filter results according to the set Minimum and Maximum values for"Life per Spirit Spent"

And there you have it! Please note that this isn’t a preview, and that the above list represents every change we are making to the auction house in 1.0.4. While the list is exhaustive for this patch, it's definitely not the end of the road -- we still have additional improvements planned for 1.1.0 and for the long-term. We don't have a lot of juicy details to share right now on that front, but we'll be sure to provide more information as development continues

The two biggest changes I am glad they finally added:

•We're upping the allowed number of "Preferred Stats" per search from 3 to 6.
•Armor, DPS, Buyout, and Time Left columns are now sortable columns in the Search tab.

This may make selling items easier since you can now sort by time left and buyout good deals.

Love it. The gem in socket not counting toward stats has always annoyed me!

That said, I had a ton of play time this weekend and I couldn't get myself to play D3 much. Patch 1.0.4 has a ton of improvements but I'm still getting 1 shotted in act 2 with my wizard and DH. I guess I can hope there's more "good" (vs "godly") drops with MF changes (still waiting for the notes) so I can gear my guys enough to finish the game.

Awesome...these are my biggies for sure.

The last 3 are huge for reselling items...it will be nice to see what items are actually selling, as I don't remember the exact stats for everything I sell, and if I want to re-list it, knowing what I sold it for last time, and can drop it in price for the next go round is EXTREMELY helpful. Oh, and cancelling auctions is huge, too...I've got 10 items sitting right now with no bids (very low priced too ), so I'm just sitting here waiting for timers to expire and losing out....very big and needed change there.

The item compare tooltips for the recommended items page gets me though....why not for your search result set? This seems obvious and I wonder why this wasn't done?

Part of me still wonders if this wasn't too little too late. I was talking with my BiL about it, and while these changes are great, the initial capture of audience D3 had may be gone, or at least the potential is. They may reclaim some, but definitely have to feel like they took a hit and lost quite a few folks.

I told blizz about that item removal protip when the AH first came out. Auction house simulator 3 got a little less annoying I guess huh?

The gem in a socket does count towards the stats on a search right now, which is annoying as it inflates items in searches. They are removing, thankfully.

We're going to see a lot of level 40-59s use reduced level req weapons now that they appear when you search for weapons without specifying them.
Wouldn't be surprised if there's a jump in their price.
