1st off I AM a collector. I keep 2 (with the best stats) of each blue of all equipment all types I can find. Why do you ask? Because I have 35 characters which I play in rotations as they all reach for max level. I also have 5 mules added on, & a couple of my active toons store things like potions & legendary crafting materials.
I would like to have the ability to have a tab for EACH rough category of items, based on level ranges, for use in this cornucopia to end all cornucopias within GD, called the loot table.
The reason I keep two of each (3 on rare occasions of especially useful or rare items) is because until ALL the classes have been released I will always be adding new characters, who need access to useful “hand-me-downs.”
It saves time scouring for the level 14-ish blues that drop in Act 1 which spawn at fixed locations, & on up the scale. When all classes are complete finally, & all of my characters no longer need access to say, sub-level 51 items then the need will not be so pressing. At that time I will haunt the give-away section of the forums handing out goodies to up and comers who want (95%+) blue items to grow with.
I do also keep a handful of outstanding greens of all levels up to level 75 so far, on one mule.
I would like to be able to look in ONE stash for an armor piece, accessory, components by category i.e placement as neatly as possible, I know most are multi-use in placement, etc. instead of logging in & out & shopping as it were for an upgrade. I have looked into the unlimited stash mod, but it is very tedious, & if I use it, my 2 main peeps I play with don’t want the mod, so we would not be able to run together while it is active.
I propose a solution.
Offer it as either an option, 20 30 40 50 or 100 tabs, for a a price in-game of course or EVEN as a micro-transaction for those of us who need adequate, (would like searchable like POE but I digress), easily accessible storage to SAVE the time we spend looking for the upgrade which we already have in storage, logging in & out ad-nauseum, as opposed to a simple search through tabs we “collectors” as you have dubbed us, that would take very little time.
You may not notice, or maybe it doesn’t cross your minds if you don’t have one of EACH class & mix available in GD, (THANK YOU!!!), but over time you tend to learn almost all of the blues available in-game, although I do get a surprise in Elite once in a while still. Legendaries I am just discovering, as my top three are in lower 70’s or high 60’s, & having a great time even with the level 50-65+ legendaries.
So why not throw us a frickin’ bone & allow us to play ALL of the classes & keep a boneyard for twinking/min-maxing our new GD babies, with EASE.
