    How do you organize your stashes?

    I have them sorted in uniques, set, rares, magical, charms, gems, socketed, jewel and white.

    But it doesn't seem a good idea. How do you do it?

    Re: How do you organize your stashes?

    Well for me its simple.

    I have the Inventory where i keep tomes/charms and some space for items.

    Then i have the stash at town where i keep an array of things including runes, gems, jewels, future items, expensive items etc.

    As you can see i don't use ATMA or any extended stashes....:thumbup:.

    HC Grail
    HC Items
    HC Low Runes
    HC LowUseGrail
    HC Socketables
    Low Gems <--- should be HC LowGems
    SC Items

    And I've never had a problem.

    Re: How do you organize your stashes?

    I was planing to sort mine this way:

    (1) Folder "Uniques"
    --1a-- Stash "Normal Uniques"
    --1b-- Stash "Exceptional Uniques"
    --1c-- Stash "Elite Uniques"
    --1d-- Stash "Ethereal Uniques"

    (2) Folder "Sets"
    --2a-- Stash "Classic Sets"
    --2b-- Stash "Expansion Sets"

    (3) Folder "Plain Items"
    --3a-- Stash "Normal Plain"
    --3b-- Stash "Exceptional Plain"
    --3c-- Stash "Elite Plain"
    --3d-- Stash "Class-Specific Plain"

    (4) Folder "Sockets"
    --4a-- Stash "Chipped Gems"
    --4b-- Stash "Flawed Gems"
    --4c-- Stash "Normal Gems"
    --4d-- Stash "Runes El to Ith"
    --4e-- Stash "Runes Tal to Shael"
    --4f-- Stash "Runes Dol and Up"
    --4g-- stash "Jewels" (still in process since I don't know how to break them down)

    >>>>>Notice, no Flawless/Perfect for the gems since most of the time they're cubed and used for rolling, those that aren't stays in my "In Process Folder" within the "Holding Stash".

    (5) Folder "Miscellaneous"
    --5a-- Stash "Purple Potions"
    --5b-- Stash "Crafted"
    --5c-- Stash "Misc Items" (contains other potions, keys, tomes, etc.)

    (6) Folder "Magical/Rare"
    randomly adds stash if opening gets slow, currently only distinction applied is rare and magical, no sub-categorizing.

    (7) Folder "In Process"
    --7a-- "Holding Stash" (for recent finds)
    --7b-- Stash "HellForge Runes" (holding stash for hell hellforge rune drops pre-IFT report)
    --7c-- Stash "NMForge Runes" (holding stash for nightmare hellforge rune drops pre-IFT report)
    --7d-- Stash "Rushed Runes" (post-reporting rushed runes collection)
    --7e-- Stash "LK Runs" (currently 0 item)
    --7f-- Stash "Cow Runs" (currently 0 item)
    --7g-- Stash "Crafted Rolled" (for recent Crafting or Re-rolls pre-IFT report)

    (8) Folder "Charms"
    This I have no idea how to fix.
    Currently I have stashes like: Skillers, ManaLife, PlusAttributes, Resists, MFcharms, FineSteelSharp, Others, Useless.
    It's currently the biggest challenge, and the breaking point, of my ATMA organization endeavor. It was the bane of the past, and it still remains to be at the present.
    I gave up after awhile.
    Do others have ingenious way of organizing this category? Please share. Pretty please. :D

    Thyiad - I think this sums it up:

    <Schmaleop> damn that organisation is mental

    You have a stash for keys? WTF!
    Spare cubes? How many spare cubes you have in there? :grin:

    Very nicely sorted I must say. You could never lose anything in there.

    Re: How do you organize your stashes?

    Well I was hoping the Keys of Terror, Destruction, Hate might come in useful one day ....

    I've a couple of retired characters and I stripped their cubes off.

    Let's not mention the 800+ Full Rejuvs in the Full Rejuv stash ....

    Hehe - Fair enough on the keys. As to the juvies, I agree, let's not go into that. :D

    Well, I pick up those Keys from Countess, because I'm keeping track of drops, but I delete them :)

    800+ full juvies? That's weak, I stopped when I had 1,2k :rolleyes:

    Re: How do you organize your stashes?

    You're both nubs. The proof is here.

    To answer the original question, I don't really organize my stashes much. I have one stash for runes, one for pgems, one for full juvies, a temp stash (used for such things as storing items earmarked for a new build, so they are easier to find as I attain level requirements for said items), and one for pretty much everything else.

    Occasionally, I will create new stashes for specialized purposes, such as if I enter a tournament (rare) or play a different version. However, my main stuff is all lumped together, and I rely on ATMA's categorization of things to sort it out. On the downside, such stashes take forever to load (I keep hoping that maybe Tenshi will optimize the stash loading routines), but on the upside, I'm occasionally pleasantly surprised when I find something I didn't know I had. It's kind of like going through pockets of old clothes you've not worn in years, and finding cash. ;)

    Re: How do you organize your stashes?

    Screensaver. It's beautiful. I have many of their screensavers, but use Cosmic Voyage 99.99% of the time. There isn't any spyware and even unregistered version isn't crippled. (I do have the registered package though.)

    I also have Cosmic Scenes as my desktop. It came up with a beautiful blue background some time ago, so I turned the random generator off for a while.

    Re: How do you organize your stashes?

    Meh, I had a nice table of my stash organization in one of the old threads, but can't find the post.

    As always, this has evolved a little over time, but the basic structure is pretty close to what I've had for almost 3 years. I like this setup, because even now it means I can almost always find what I'm looking for immediately, without searching 8 different stashes.

    Code:
    D2 save folder <root>
    -  active_characters.d2s
    -  retired subfolder (containing stripped character files)
    -  retired_HC subfolder (containing hardcore character files, mostly dead)
    -  atma subfolder (muled items)
    
    atma subfolder (containing):
    - charms.d2x
    - crafting_fodder.d2x (junk jewels, amulets, sharkskin gloves, etc)

    Re: How do you organize your stashes?

    I think Thyiad is on the right track, but she hasn't nearly gone far enough.

    I have an individual ATMA stash for each and every item. ;)

    /me: hides from the banstick :wave:

    Re: How do you organize your stashes?

    There's a point at which you have so many stashes that opening each is as much a pain as searching through them. I'd rather open one, tap the first letter of what I'm looking for and then use the scroll bar if necessary. That may be because I hate cluttering my screen with windows, however. To each his/her own - here's what I use.

    -Charms
    -Craft Fodder
    -Crafted
    -Flawless Gems
    -Jewels
    -Perfect Gems
    -Quest Gear
    -Rares
    -Runes
    -Runewords
    -Sets
    -Unique Weapons
    -Unique Armor

    Re: How do you organize your stashes?

    I have a great system! I make a stash for each char as they are born, and when they die (as they all do) and leave nothing but useless crap(as almost all do, since lately, I seem to be dying if that low lvl bugger of a diablo so much as winks at me), I take the stash, and bring it to my graveyard. I'll probably do a delete all one of these days in my graveyard... With the way diablo tears into my looser chars(or rather, awesome chars with pathetic controller(yes, I'm still resentful over offing another necromancer at normal diablo)) I'll need to clear some vacancy slots there.

    EDIT: @thyiad -sounds nice. thanks for the explanation!
