    So, how do you know if you are rich?

    My luck today was nice. I figured I'd go level outside a Baal run, in the Pit of course.

    Pit 2: Boss drops me a nice new set of Tal Armor

    Saturday a Goat Man in Nightmare dropped me a Tal's Ammy. And of course we all have perfect Tal Belts.

    Anyhow, I have 8 accounts of mules with gear, and 2 accounts are dedicated to crafting & runes. I recently noticed they were all packed. I have 3 accounts of characters that I play and level - each are kinda geared out with nice stuff. I only have 1 account of PKers/Duellers. I trade every weekend all day for Pgems, and it still doesn't remove the clutter.

    People accuse me of being rich all the time. I tell them I know McSaladshaker so I know I ain't rich. I've cubed all the Skill Charms I can stand, and I've cubed a ton of res/vita/mf charms. I'm moving onward into Jewel cubing.

    What determines if you are rich? Is it having just a bunch of junk? If that were the case, most everyone would be rich. Is it having every item in the game? Is it having multiple copies of each item in the game? Is it sheer number of accounts?

    When you have no qualms about Isting your Shako and Tal's armour instead of P Topaz (because you JUST HAVE TO have that extra 1 MF), that's when you know you're rich. I'll admit I'm guilty of an Isted Tal's armour and 2 Isted Shakos in non-ladder.

    Or, you only pick up things that you know will have immediate trade value (Shako, Storm... etc), because you're too lazy to make more mules.

    You're rich when you start trading for ever duped rune/engima/botd you can get for the purpose of selling them.
    Or making a 6 zodded phaseblade.
    Or an ethereal zodded upgraded ginthers rift. (self repairing no durability indestructable ethereal items are kind of neat, regardless of having a duped zod in them or not)

    I actually own a small country off the coast of Spain, so I know that I'm rich...

    LOL Sparrow, now that is funny.

    Thanks for confirming... I am NOT rich! Woohoo! More reason to keep playing!

    I'll add one: Making Iron Golems only out of uber armors/items... i.e., Valor, BotD Ethereal items, Enigmas, GFs, IK Armors. Doing it in plain view of everyone else in a pubbie game is bad form, although fun to do.

    Stinger, nice point and all, but the word "rich" when it applies to Bnet means items, not friends. I try to limit the number of people on my /f list for the very reason you mentioned. I hate screens of green.

    Your values are screwed dude, friends are where it is all at and if it werent for them I wouldnt play. only the self centered egotistical ignoramouses consider pixels/items what makes one rich.

    Hell I hocked 3/4 of my total xpac item base and parked 3 characters to help gear up a bunch of friends and get them going strong. That is what is rich, people that give a crap about you, not some stupid *** items.

    Oh don't get me wrong, I like the guys I play with. But I'm here for entertainment first... Not like we can go knock down a beer with a guy who probably isn't old enough to shave! LOL And everyone I know on Bnet is about 1500+ miles away. Although that brings up another question: Would you drop by and visit someone you knew only online? I wouldn't. Even if they swore up and down they were a kid, a female, or a nice person. Call me crazy, but my cousin plays online games, and there's no way in hell I would want to get to know him personally if I was anyone other than his cousin. He plays that Delta Force online, likes to act like a little kid, very sick crap. Very nice guy online I hear.

    Glad you're rich in online friends, however. I'll stick with my pixels!
