It's not like people didn't trade each other op low level gear in Diablo 2, the auction house simply makes it easier.

Buy a weapon with lower DPS if you don't like how easy it is now. Problem solved!

It's NM, it's going to be joke regardless.

nah d2 wasnt op even if you pimp it out. and you had to pimp out every piece. But in D3, just buy 900dps weapon and face roll everything .....thats like cheat code

True game doesn't start until level 60 anyways so you need to get there as soon as possible. When you get to 60, good luck getting "OP" weapons. They cost a fortune and you are better off just farming the gear if you don't have a ton of money saved up already. Yes there are some weapons that will boost you through MP0, but why not up your monster power level a bit. I think you probably don't even have that set past 0!

if a weapon ----------you bought------- ruined the game for you...
thats on you.

thats a simple matter of self control, just cause its there doesnt mean you have to use it, especially when it doesnt fit what you hope for in the game.

honestly, what did you think was gonna happen?

yeah d3 honestly doesn't really start until you hit 60. normal-nm-hell are just a place to test out all of your class's skills while getting to 60. it's kind of frustrating to see but it's how they chose to structure the game.

personally I think your thread title is not what's happening here.. even if the ah didn't exist in this game someone could trade you a high dps weapon while you're a low level. the ah is not the problem in this scenario.

Normal/Nightmare/Hell are just a timesink.
This is great! I will use Heroin on the weekends now!

ok i admit its not AH thats ruining the game its the SUPER HIGH dps weapons available at low level. I mean i seen 1200dps for lvl 40 what in the gods name did they decide to put that into the game for?
