    Buried alive - D2 Hoarders

    I was watching this hoarding show, and came to the realization that there is a little of this going on in my life - with this game.

    While I'm sure I'm not as bad as some, still, 17 mules full of stuff I don't need, some of it has been hanging around for 4 years,and I must log in to keep em all going.

    I've been playing for 9 years now, but the first half was on SP and Open Bnet. Back then I didn't care so much, since I was led astray on an "open" style of play, so the item value became zero to me.

    Anyway, I'd like to hear some stories if you have anything to share.

    Peace.

    Heh, KillaMike would have a story like that :p.

    As for myself... not so bad. I usually stick to 1 account, and 3 mule characters (1 runes, 1 pgems, and 1 items. 2 if I have a lot). They're almost never stuff I wish to trade though. They're either stuff I could use for future characters (arctic belt for low level characters, weapons for barbarians, heads/wands for necro's etc), or stuff I'd probably give to the few friends I play with online. An item has to be fairly valuable for me to actually save it for trading (trangs belt for example, assuming I have one already).

    I currently have three accounts for mules only. Four mules carry runes. Four mules carry craft materials, including craft runes. Four mules carry sets, another four uniques. Then there are four miscellaneous mules, for gems, charms, tokens, rune words and socketed items.

    In addition to those, I have four old mules, which have been nearly emptied, but I haven't deleted them yet, should I ever need extra space that has already been permed.

    Finally I have two mules with special purpose. One can enter hell, and he was made to mule torches and annis my main characters cannot pick up. One can see nightmare games, and that is his only purpose.

    In total: 22 active mules, and 4 inactive.

    I think Usufruct is worth mentioning in this...he was always known to have mules full of Digglers.

    I had 8 full mule accounts at the height of my OCD hoarding. Refreshing them sucked. It's one of the many reasons I quit BNet.

    TreeSlice's HotO collection.

    As for me, I currently only have... 11 accounts, I think... 8 of them mule accounts. I let a lot of them expire just because I didn't care enough to keep them active.

    Re: Buried alive - D2 Hoarders

    Last season I had around 15 full accounts of 8 mules each.

    In the past I have paid people to help me organize.

    Re: Buried alive - D2 Hoarders

    Funny.. I was thinking about this when people were talking about Hoarders at work(though I kept it myself :p). Glad I'm not AS bad as some people here though,more like in the middle.

    Last season about 3-4 accounts of mules.. ended up giving all to a friend when I "quit" and he told me I had A LOT of crappola on it that he had to go through. And just recently went through my mules this season and surprise surprise... several pairs of same set items and items from right at the beginning of ladder (if anyone needs 5 mahim oak's lmk)

    Man, how did you keep track of where everything was? Just specific char carrying specific items? How many now?

    Re: Buried alive - D2 Hoarders

    I had a couple close friends help manage my goods. I had lots of notes, but it was still hard to keep track of things. I did so much finding and trading, so inventory moved around fast and got lost very easily. I haven't been playing this season, but I'm sure someone has been keeping at least some of those mules active while I'm gone.

    Although I to get extremely wealthy by trading massive amounts of junk, it is quite a headache and eventually it gets to the point where you don't enjoy playing this game because 99% of your time is sorting through gear and trading (dang diabloii.net trade forums).

    My mules are named like what items they have and what nr of the mule it is.

    I remember what accounts have what mules ;p (I make new mules when I need more space.)

    Re: Buried alive - D2 Hoarders

    I just name my characters a combination of whatever words are in my head at the moment. For example, my last mule's name was ManTittedPally. If I can't think of anything, then any random button mashing gibberish will do.
    It's too much effort to sort mules by items that they hold. If you trade often, then it's just a pain to keep stuff organized.
