Shared Stashes are FunctionalPosted 13 January 2011 by Flux
@Diablo tweeted some news that most fans will probably approve of. Shared stashes, confirmed as a planned feature by Jay Wilson at last year’s Blizzcon, are now in the game and working as designed.

Fans have long requested a shared stash, and while the developers were committed to some some sort of easy way to exchange items between characters on the same account, they were kicking around a variety of ideas. Jay Wilson confirmed they were going with a shared stash at last year’s Blizzcon, and now it seems to have come to fruition.
We’ve got no details yet, so speculate away. Is the shared stash a huge storage area accessible to all chars on your account, or is it just large enough to hold a few items, which you’d then switch to a different character or a mule for long term storage? More generally, does anyone not like this feature? Is there any downside to a big damn shared stash, other than maybe encouraging hoarders to spend more time engaged in inventory management than in actually playing the game?
