    How organize are you when it comes to D2?

    This will make you spend a good part of the day turning over the contents of your computer...

    I was doing some "organizing" with my D2 stashes today, was really meant to just put together items that are similar, like normal white items in a stash, exceptional white in a separate one, etc. So I was checking different folders and if they contain D2 stashes so I can somehow compile them. I really think it's impossible to clearly organize your items in such a way you limit the effort of finding a specific one... I really should start throwing away some stuff to ease up some stashes...

    Anyway, so there I was looking through different folders and found more useless items, probably I intentionally buried them in some folders so I won't find those trash. But then there was this stash containing charms. First I checked was the SCs section. Found some worthwhile charms. Those with decent resist, those with good life and some +MF...

    Then I check the GCs part. Going through the items I saw some decent resist... but really, unless you don't have any you won't use GCs for resist... then I saw a 2 Burning skillers... I thought I just misplaced them somehow. I went on, then I found more skillers... and more... crazy stash! I don't know what came into me the day I set this stash aside.

    After looking through everything, I found 37 skillers, not all are the useful types, but hey it has 2 Burning, 2 Chilling, 3 Fungal (which I really want for my Poison/Summoner and future Bonemancer--3 less to trade for :p ), 1 Graverobber with Vita, 1 Natural, 1 Spiritual with Vita... and best of all: 4 LION BRANDED GCs!!! :clap: Now I remember where I stored these baddies when I decided to delete my try at a v1.10 Zealot, I thought I traded them away...
    I must have set aside this stash from some time ago so that I won't trade these away, but completely forgot about it when I had classes and spare time for D2 was minimal.

    So, how organize are you when it comes to D2?
    Are you sure you are O.C. enough not to make the same "mistake".
    Now, everyone, go and check if you have some stashes there kept in the depths of your HD! You never, maybe your dream item is just there somewhere lurking in one of you obscure folders.
    Happy hunting! :lol:

    Some good luck there :)

    Im pretty orginized when it comes to my stash. BUT it came from lots of pratice and lots of losses. I have had a few hard drive failures etc. so I tend to loose my stuff alot. I make backups of my stashes but I dont reload D2 right away. So by the time I get back to the game I just start over. (Bet you I can still find stuff from 3 years ago easy)

    Finding the stuff I want is half the fun of the game. :)

    My stash is orginized as follows:
    Rares
    Runes grail (<= All runes I have only one of, first one goes here)
    Runes use (<= I may use these at will, may not use grail runes)
    Charms (<= Mostly skillers, poison, strength, dex and res all)
    Gems - perfect
    Gems - chippy
    Gems - std
    Set
    Unique
    Magic
    Items (<= Sockets and normal good stuff)
    Giveaway (<= Anything I already have goes here)

    That I think does it... probebly not the best but it works... for now.. Seeing that I dont trade I dont need a traded section...

    I am extremely disorganized, I have lost(hopefully will find) a perfect lightning facet, and a widowmaker somewhere in my stashes, I have probably lost more, but I have started being semi more organized ie one stash.

    A picture says a thousand words

    Atma Organization

    Of course, if any one stash gets too busy, it can be split up further.

    I don´t twink, but some of my characters (and my two tournament character teams) are allowed to use ATMA as an extended stash, so my organisation is simple: one stash for each character (named after the character).

    I want to take a screenie, too... but I can't... too much stashes... :(

    Unique Normal
    Unique Exceptional
    Unique Elite
    Ethereal Uniques
    Set pre-Expansion
    Set Expansion
    Stash for Mix set and uniques (recent finds)
    4x Stashes for Magical Items
    3x Stashes for Rare Items
    Runes and Gems (except chippies)
    Chippies
    Jewels
    4x White Items (socketed, ethereal, both, superior, etc... as long as it's non-magical)----> this is what I planned to organize for the day into Normal, Exceptional, Elite, and Class-Specific and almost done.
    Miscellaneous (contains Potions, etc.)
    Ladder Stash (assorted Ladder items)

    Assorted Charms (those not yet sorted into sub-stashes)
    Skillers for keeps
    Skillers for trade
    Resistance Charms (for keeps, includes Resist All)
    General Resistance Charms
    Elemental/Poison Charms
    Life Charms (high +Life Charms)
    Life and Mana Charms (including those Mana only)
    MF Charms
    Fine/Steel/Sharp Charms (generally the useful ones)
    Plus Attributes Charms
    Plus Physical Damage/AR Charms (aside from Fine/Steel/Sharp Charms)
    EDIT: Crafted Items


    Typing all these made me realize how disorganize my attempt at organizing my items... :lol:
    I am slowly learning not to be a pack rat, leaving the usual Unique and Set items that love to drop... but still hard at times. And selling those useless charms the moment I get my hands on them. But it's really hard... thinking you can re-roll them into something nice. :(

    I have the following stashes:

    Gems (well over 400 now, time to get cubing! :p)
    Runes
    Set
    Unique
    Rares
    Magic
    Socketed
    Runewords

    If I start finding useful charms and/or jewels, they may get their own stashes. I might separate uniques into Normal/Exceptional/Elite as well, haven't decided.

    I agree! That is completely over the top! (o.t.t. ?)
    And I thought I have too much stashes... :uhhuh:

    Actually, you can use Google Desktop Search if it gets uncontrollable... it's a personal search engine for your personal files. :D
