It didn’t take long for people to start selling Diablo 2 Resurrected items for real life money. If you’ve logged onto the game, I’m sure you have seen all the websites advertise them through spamming the main chat rooms. Not only is this against Blizzard’s rules, there also runs a risk of being scammed. We’ll provide you with everything you need to know about real-world trading and buying Diablo 2 Resurrected items.
If you’re looking for a safe and secure way to buy D2R items, this is one of the only places it can be done within Blizzard’s rules. D2JSP dates back all the way to Diablo 2 Classic days. It’s a forum where thousands of users are selling and trading items.
But how do they get around the ‘real-world trading’ rules Blizzard has in place? They all use a currency called “forum gold”. You’re able to trade your items for forum gold and also use that to buy items from other players. You are also able to purchase forum gold directly from the website.
The owner has made out pretty good for himself, I must say. It’s the one workaround to real-world trading that everyone trusts. Since you are trading with other players, you always have the risk of being scammed, but you can request a ‘mediator’ to ensure you don’t.
It’s important to note that you’re not able to sell your forum gold back in exchange for money – you can only buy it.
D2R Real World Marketplaces
So what about the websites you often see being advertised in the game itself? Those are not only untrusted, but against Blizzard’s rules. These places have an intricate system with multiple accounts and constant trading being done, so it’s difficult for Blizzard to track them down.
Some people are suspicious that these item sellers have found a way to duplicate items, but there’s no solid evidence. What places like P2PAH and MTMMO often do are resell items. They will buy items (most specifically high runes) from other players and resell them at a mark up.
I know it’s tempting to drop $50 on that Ber rune to finish your godly good character, but you always run the risk of losing your money and getting nothing in return, so be careful!
