A mule is simply a regular character that is used to store items.

People usually use level 1s for this, but people do "retire" their characters and use them as mules too.

Basically people use them to store items on battlenet.

There are a few ways to transfer items from the charactes that have them to your mules. First is making a private transfer game and waiting MORE THAN FIVE MINUTES _very important_. Come back with the other characte in the transfer to make sure that the game is PERMANENT, and then proceed with the transfer by logging out one characte then logging another character in.

Another way is to join a public game which has people in it and will for a while, then dropping the items to transfer in an obscure place and coming back with the mule (making sure that the mule has advanced far enough in the game to get to the place where you dropped the item). This is risky and I would only do this with items you don't care too much about, if even that.

Another way is to get a friend to help you out. The problem with this one is that many D2 friends are actually "friends," if you know what I mean. In other words, backstabbing leeches. So if there is someone you know from RL and trust, or someone that you have known for a long time in-game and trust, this is really the only way to do this kind of transfer. I'm good at judging whether people are trustworthy or not (I had to learn fast on the internet), but some people aren't so this might not be a good option for you if your so-called friends turncloak on you :p

Descriptive enough? :p

If you make a private game as Jaimes suggests be sure not to switch between mules too fast or you will get "Realm down" lock out. Transfer three or four times then maybe level up a char in the game for about 2 or 3 minutes. Then transfer a few more items. Blizzard does the "Realm down" to keep people from "botting" too fast.

I run two copies of Diablo II to transfer items. I lost too many items by joining and leaving games, so in the end I paid for another copy of Diablo II to fix that problem.

If you play on single player you need a program called ATMA.
Its available somewhere and is probably the only thing I won't get banned for plugging here.

Its a muling program for single player.
