    Gold shared in party?

    When you pick up the gold, you never recieve as much as you pick up. At the same time, if you dont pick up gold, you still end up with some gold in your pocket after a baalrun or whatever.
    Conclusion: Gold must be shared?
    Can anyone confirm this? And is it divided equally between the whole party, or does the "picker" get more (like with XP)
    :flip:

    I'm pretty sure that on battle.net gold is not shared. At least since 1.09

    I remember that when I played TCP-IP multiplayer, version 1.03 or something, it was shared, even when you sold big armours the money was shared.

    well, then it must be tax-paying or something, because when i pick up 2000 gold in an 8-player-game i end up getting less than 500 in my inventory
    strange indeed

    Picked gold is shared, gold that you get when selling items to vendors is not.

    That's because 2000/8 = 250, not 500 :lol:

    Gold is shared between party members. IIRC gold from a corpse being picked up by the "corpse owner" will not be shared.

    ok i'm probably wrong ;)

    I got the feeling that when I didn't pick any gold up I ended up with nothing in my purse. But that's probably because noone picks it up ;)

    hmmmmmmm Im starting to freak now....so in an 8 player scenario if I were to pick up all the Gold in a busy frenzy and all my other team mates sat and guarded the room having a smoke...they would benefit from my work? or if they each picked up say 1 gold and i picked up 800 gold they would get an equal share?.....yikes

    Cheers

    I'm not sure about this. I have the feeling that gold is only shared between party members within a 2-screen-range (same as exp). Could be wrong though...

    Hm. In my experience, it was only obvious that it was being shared if you pick it up with telekinesis. I've never noticed it giving less than the full amount when I pick it up by hand...

    i can agree with that theory about 2 screens or so. (not saying 2 screens, but that it is some range limit), because when standing in town you wont get any gold. And in baalruns you tend to be closer than 2 screens from almost everybody.

    Stupid of Blizzard not to make the picker get more than the others though. You should at least get some advantage being ambitious :cheesy:

    I can at least confirm that gold is shared among party members who are close to each other. My girlfriend and I play side by side over battle.net and we just had a look at this the other day. She picks up 642 gold, we each get 321. We'll test how far the range is this weekend or something.

    Misconception about XP - it doesn't matter who makes the killing blow, if you are the same level, you get the same XP. Suryl and I did a test on this.

    The only things that affect XP are:
    level (if I'm lvl 2, and you are lvl 1, I will get a little more than you)
    exp shrines (the person with the shrine obviously gets more).
    anni charm

    There may be more, but it's been a while since we tested and I don't really remember very well. But I do remember clearly that it didn't matter who got the killing blow.

    Cyrian, sweet. Thnx for doing some testing ;)
    And besides, Matrixnetux, you can still goldrush, as long as you arent in party with the others or far enough away from them
