"The drop rates were tuned for a player who would never use the Auction House. For the majority of internal development we didnít have an Auction House, we all played using our own drops only.

There's no real need for AH on softcore, because you can die a few times, decide that the area is too hard, go back and farm a previous zone, then continue with your progress. Or you can perform aggressive goblin runs without the fear of dying. On hardcore it is almost required to browse AH regularly.
