    Pick Up All button

    We need to be able to quickly grab all loot on the ground within a certain radius to our chars, just like in Hellgate: London.

    That really reduced on the clickity click click clickin' and kept things going quickly.

    Thats a nice idea. Especially since the drops will be exclusive to the player and not the team.

    However, I don't see many people using it, especially since there will most likely be a lot of crap items that will be dropped.

    Interesting.

    Once you get good at it, you could pick up all, then quickly go into inventory and drop all the stuff you don't want so other players can get it.

    Another thing that would reduce the clicking is if you could expand a sort of select all box across a bunch of items and then drop all of them in one go.

    yeah, interesting idea. Additionally, lucky they changed the way gold is being picked up too.

    When you consider my ideas for crafting then this idea makes a LOT more sense.
    Check that post out too!

    Re: Pick Up All button

    this would not be viable, at least not if drops remain somewhat as they are now. I was picking up only rare items at this year's blizzcon, and i still had to stop and dump out everything I was holding every 10 or 15 minutes. and characters in the blizzcon build had a huge backpack, taking the storage from 13 to 40 spaces. You wouldn't find that until much later in the game, playing normally.

    Now if the "pick up all" was customizable, then sure. set it to grab rares, uniques, jewels, elixirs, runes, etc. that's the sort of feature the game should have, if not from the devs than by a fan-made UI mod. (That sort of thing was cheating in D2, since everyone was competing for the same items, but in D3 with individual drops, I don't see any real objection?)

    A third party mod that automatically picks up select loot for the player would be considered botting, as the feature to automatically pick up loot (other than gold) isn't present in the original game.

    The developers have said the game will not support any custom mods at all anyway, probably since it would make the game prone to exploits.

    Hopefully the d3 team will implement something like that right in the game. If not, I hope some fans can find a way to do so. And yes, the d3 team has said they won't support mods, but as mandatory as good UI mods are to the WoW playing experience, I won't be surprised if their inexplicable resistance to them in D3 weakens.

    At any rate, I wasn't really talking about what bliz would consider cheating, since that sort of decision is based more on corporate control and overall security issues than logical debate. I consider PickIt type tools to be cheating in MP D2, with items ninja lootable. In D3 it would simply be a convenience, and I wouldn't object to anyone using it, and would want it for myself, if only for SP play (if they have some mod scanning feature on the realms that would ban me for using it).

    I agree, something to keep the pace moving and not have to stop every time to pick up items would be wonderful. I already like the auto-pickup on gold, auto-pickup on items you can set a limit to as you explained would be great and something I have no problem with because you have your own loot table now.

    Re: Pick Up All button

    Diablo 3 should really have this. I remember playing dungeon siege like years back and that game had a pick up everything button. It didnt just pick everything up in a short radius but the characters actually automatically ran around and picked up everything on the screen that they could fit in their Dinventory. they also had the same tetris block inventory style (althought d3 style keeps changing)
