I won't deny your point, you are able to achieve the same by yourself, without spending money and i wouldn't spend any money on that either.Doom972 said:*snip*
My point still holds - the "items" (randomly generated numbers) are given in Diablo 3 and are only useful there. Same goes for in-game currency. You can get the exact same items without spending any money if you just trade your unwanted powerful items (or extra in-game currency) for wanted powerful items with other people. This way you can immerse yourself within the virtual world instead of basically paying someone with real world money for farming items.
I appreciate the detailed explanation regardless.
Though, here's another point: You are able to spend time to learn how to tailor, cut out the middleman presented by a cloth-store, buy some fabrics and tailor yourself - done that myself, found it to be very interresting and fun, it saves me money and my clothes are more unique than an item in Diablo could ever be - you could even go further and produce your own fabrics, or trade those clothes with others if they like yours and you like theirs, for diversity or whatever, but given the opportunity and to save time or for whatever reasons, most people don't and buy their clothes in stores, sometimes for ridiculously and unjustified high prices. In pretty much the same way people choose to take a shortcut and spend some money on their favorite game to buy an item they want.
By the way, hail to the economy
