various screen shots from the trade posts made me wonder...

how many people keep a horadric cube in their inventory, or in their stash for the extra space one gets?

I usually keep one in inventory on all of my chars, for, as an example, it's a handy spot to keep gulls/mf gear, or a hand spot to toss bo sticks after I have bo-ed with my baba.

i think most people use them to store random crap. might be sorta weird using it to hold bo sticks, why not just put other crap in there that you use less often and keep bo sticks in inventory. btw i gave your naga away (and full barb i never made) to a friend :p

Cube's faster generally to use in the inventory manually like that. Slower when auto-picking up items though. Also gives more inventory room maximum.

Generally I stash it just so I get 2x2 more of auto-pick-up instead of 3x4 (8 extra) of manual room because of fast-paced cs runs.

Once your cube and everything is pretty much filled up though then it doesn't matter that much unless you use it for weapon switching with a bit more speed.

What CDMagicFind wrote pretty much covers what I use it for.
Cept on my Orbsorc, she has MF gear(3 sock mask,gull, chancies, nagel) in there, so it's in her inv with a pair of MF boots under it to make a full row. Esthetics dictate one should not have half rows. :)

I keep a tome of portals and tome of identify underneath mine in my inventory. It's like having a 3x4 inventory in place of the 2x4 with lots of portals and ID on hand at all times.

this is what I do too. cube on top, far right, tome of each directly under far right.

re: the bo sticks. it's just an example, but generally it's used for swapping out gear, in which I wouldn't want to go back to town. or for tossing stuff in there until I can arrange for an xfer.

in the old days, on my exe-er I generally went two handed exe. however, I'd keep a spare swordback hold in there for if I were ever mfing, and got hostiled. my results were obviously mixed, since I'm not a pvp specialist anyway, but you get the pt.

for a sorc, that had limited resists, I'd pop an eyeless in there to rapidly teleport, then swap out to a pward, or triple p diamond kite for end bosses (andy/mephy) as an example. The MF swapping mentioned above is also somewhat common for me to employ.

I was just curious, cause I see a lot of screenshots devoid of the cube, and many with it.

and blee. out of curiousity, what was the highest offer you had on that naga? I don't know if I'll venture much on non-ladder, even when the ladder resets, and all of my much better built chars get shoved over to NL.

Building from nearly scratch on ladder was a lot of fun. However, even with only having been on ladder since something like June, I'm growing bored again...

Actually, I used to play a lot with people from other continents who had little or no problems with it. They hardly ever experienced lag. And Steve for instance also plays on all three non-asian realms, right ?
You don't really need a T1 heading straight from b.net to your house for some good gameplay. Just give it a go and message me when you do. *CC_porn

I was referring to literal clock hours... e.g. I'd be playing at 'prime time' eastern USA (say 9:00 to 10:30 pm) which would be what? 4:00 am the next day in europe?

everyonce in a while, I'll jump on, after the morning workout, at say 6:30 am, and there's NOBODY on east at that time...

I think the difference is 6-9 hours, probably putting you in the 12:00am-2:30am area.
At that time there are plenty of people still around on Ladder. And that is usually the time I play. Though I play nl where there are less people atm. I think most are just waiting for a Ladder reset.
