I refuse to use the Auction-house. I play it the way D2 was played. I do hope they fix the itemlevel that drops so that I do not get lvl 19 items from Diablo on normal for example or lvl 21 items in act 1 nightmare. That really sucks.
Not sure how you played Diablo 2 - but there was literally a 1 to 1000000000000 chance of you finding the item with the perfect stats for your class on your own.
Trading has ALWAYS been a big part of Diablo 2 and it's quite clear that you won't be able to beat Inferno if you only rely on your own drop-luck for updates. You'll inevitably have to use the AH if you want to progress. Of course, if you want to take 3 years for Inferno or dont WANT to do it at all - more power to you my friend. There is no chance they'll "fix" the item drops I fear.
Diablo on Inferno still drops shit - the best items are RARES with the perfect combination of stats you can happen upon. Legendaries are mostly cosmetic - though some notable exceptions have great stats on them you won't get otherwise (Like Andariel's Visage as a helmet with +Attack Speed etc.).
I won't use the RMAH and I think it'll be a hot mess, besides the obvious need for them to have every of their games be a cash cow from now on. But I'll gladly indulge in the regular gold AH - still gets me that DEX items are so expensive
