Blizzard Entertainment has completed the series of videos dedicated to the heroes class from Diablo III, launching a final trailer for the Wizard character. As in previous cases of Heroes, the trailer provides details on the origins and motivations of Witch and the abilities that he can use in battle. In addition, Blizzard offered more details on the auction house that will be implemented in Diablo III, through which players can sell inventory items in exchange for real money.
Thus, for each single sold object (armor, weapons or other accessories), Blizzard will stop $1 fee (or local currency equivalent). Alternatively, common objects, precious stones or gold materials, Blizzard will stop a charge of 15% of the transaction. This fee will be valid for transactions that do not use real money, but specific game currency: gold.
In addition to these deductions, Blizzard will charge an additional fee of 15% when a player tries to transfer a sum of money from your in-game by a PayPal service. Such penalty may be avoided if the player chooses to transfer those funds into his virtual wallet of Battle.net account, so money can be used to purchase digital versions of Blizzard games or in-game transactions in World of Warcraft.
Closely related to this auction system will be dividing players on servers, depending on the regions they belong. Thus, there will be three large regions, for those who can not make transactions via the auction house: America and Oceania (United States, Canada, Latin America, Australia, New Zealand and Southeast Asia), Europe (countries European Union, Eastern Europe, Africa, Middle East and Russia) and Asia (South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau). Furthermore, players in Asia will not execute transactions for real money in the auction house.
