Would you be panic when one day all your top items are only valuable for the vendor? You should take the initiative instead of waiting for that day. Item 2.0 and Reaper of Souls would turn all the current items into junk. If you sell your items now, you can accumulate the Diablo 3 Gold for future use.
Item 2.0 Challenge. The them of 2.0 is “Fewer drops with better quality”. When this is launched, there would be many items with better stats just like the roll out of the account bound items of the gloves, shoulders and amulet. Items you are so proud of would become lower grade. Although ROS may be still a long way away, item 2.0 is not so far away. You should keep just one class all items as the paragon level would be shared across account. Generally we have all fantastic items for all our class. But now, it should be changed.
Reaper of Souls Challenge. With new level coming, there would be new Diablo 3 items level. Can you imagine one day you compete with you item level 63 items with a item level 70? You would be humiliated. Even if you do not buy the expansion, you can not stop others to get the expansion. At that time, there would be few people to buy items you put in the auction house.
Blizzard want to calm down the panic from current players. But there is no way to stop it as soon as Item 2.0 and Reaper of Souls on way. Think about it and make your wise choice.
