As this is usually exactly the opposite in other games, this is confusing me somewhat, especially since the essential mechanics are still the same.
The weapon slot is still the slot which has the potential to increase your DPS the most, yet really, really good equipment on the auction house seems to be dirt-cheap, while other equipment types (essentially everything that is not a weapon or off-hand), is really expensive.
I just spent 5k gold to increase my DPS by 50%, and I'm Level 55.
Is there a special reason why people sell weapons so cheaply? Are they dropped more commonly than other types of equipment?
