I bought into the hype that you needed an authenticator for the AH, so... it should be arriving in the mail soon lol. $6.50 free shipping and handelling because Blizzard wants to lower consumer costs.

You can skip the error that says you need to make your account legit and check your prices on your gear. A small gimmick.

I don't know about you guys, but I like knowing that my money is safe and sound where I left it. That way, I can keep buying things. I like things. With that in mind, Blizzard has announced it will require the use of a Authenticator before funds can be added to Balance -- funds which can then be spent on things in Diablo 3's Real-Money Auction House. No Authenticator, no RMAH. Sure, it means adding a step to the login for players who don't already use the Authenticator, but that's worth it for the sense of security you'll feel once you've locked down your account.

If you don't have an Authenticator yet, you can pick one up for $6.50 over at the Blizzard store, which isn't a totally unreasonable price for the protection of your hard earned cash money. For those with smart phones, the Mobile Authenticator app can be downloaded free of charge. Maybe that little speed bump will stop some of us from impulse buying that new crossbow we've been eyeing.
