Currently, people are trading items for orbs (exalted I think). Someone rolled all his orbs before leaving and his conclusion was there's a pb with crafting and it's more interesting to trade items directly.
They may improved it though, based on the replies.
Saying the game has no money is kinda misleading. The game has an economy based around crating materials. Scroll of Identify is the lowest currency, but it's still some kind of money.
People really think gold farmers can't farm those stuff? ^^;
they have a lot of fanboys ready to ditch 1000$ for the game
maybe they will get all the disgruntled guys who don't think they will like D3, it seems the case right now.
As for me, I had enough with the beta.
