    A feature I'd really like to see...

    A collector's book feature showing all the legendary (unique) items you've found along your travels. Once you find it, it makes an entry in your record to show you've picked up that item - and includes the stats for that item. If you havent found the item yet, its just shown as a blank page, or perhaps is greyed out with a very rough outline of the item, just as a teaser.

    Sort of gives an extra objective for the crazy obsessive collectors, who want to get hold of every item in the game, as well as a handy reference book for all the legendary items. I'd certainly like to be able to look and say I've found xx% of all the legendaries. It would also make it a little more rewarding to find the legendary items that you maybe arent going to use as you'd get an extra entry in your book.

    Surely it wouldnt take up that much extra in terms of server space, all you need is to allocate each legendary item a 'page number' and just let the player get access to that page once theyve found that item.

    Maybe a feature like this is in already but has passed me by?

    What do you think... would this add a little bit to the game?

    Yeah. Would be really cool.
    To be honest Blizzard could have gone much further with their "lore book". They kinda hinted toward it early in development but it didnt end up like this.

    Would also have been neat with bestiary pages for every enemy, with more and more details about them the more you killed (Diablo 1 style).

    this would be awesome for collectors like me. it would need to include set items also. it would also need an option to choose what version or the legendary/set item you wish to save for the records. if you find legendary mace of smashy goodness then find another you should be able to pick what roll gets saved to the lore book. thats probably asking too much though

    Very good idea, would like something like this too! Maybe it could tell you how many of each set/legendary has dropped for you too! I would be ok if it didnt show the stats of the item you found, but if it just kept track of your grail for you and how many of said item you've found would be nice!

    Can see it now.. 1 x 10^1093839 green breast plates found.. Heck, maybe you could put an achievement on finding your 10,000th green breast plate haha. An achievement for filling out the book would be mandatory too! You should post your idea on battle.net page if you haven't yet!

    That would be awesome. Until then I will be snagging screenshots and making my own Legendary Folder of Pain.

    I like this idea. I also really liked applying this idea to a Bestiary - similar to how Castlevania does it. I know they have Abd Al Hazir, or whatever his name is, but I posted about this feature about 2 years ago.

    I like this idea very much. Maybe also have a possibility to 'store' up to 10 best rares in the book (according to your own wishes). Then when you click on another player you could see their book, look up what crazy rares they've found.

    What would be even better is if they would add a room with a bunch of weapon/armor racks where you can display them.

    Re: A feature I'd really like to see...

    I agree that the lorebook could have been so much more: bestiary with all kinds of information on defeated mobs, list of found items like this thread suggests, list of NPC's and their known bio's... I'm sure there are more crazy ideas out there for this and I'm actually very curious if Blizzard plans anything like this in the future.

    I'm sure if Blizzard doesn't do something like this a fan will create a grail in spreadsheet form or similar.

    Re: A feature I'd really like to see...

    And what would be even better is if they provided damn inventory space so we don't have to resort to stuff like this.

    That said the idea sounds like a great compromise between players wanting a lot bigger stash and Blizzard trying to cut back on storage. The main concern with inventory is not being able to keep one of each unique / set, let alone rares. With those stored elsewhere there is copious space for rares in the stash. From Blizzard's point of view no hundreds of Sigon's for every TC87 item, just one copy of everything. The rest is either salvaged so less data to store on the servers, or sold so better AH activity.

    Individual stat rolls make up only a small fraction of item data, if you store something online you might as well do it properly at that point with every stat recorded.

    Re: A feature I'd really like to see...

    Yeah..had been thinkin of this since D2 days while we had to do the Mules and stuffs
    One Acc for Uniques then inside Normal Armor,Normal Wep, ...Excep....Elite.

    I guess most of us did that.

    My take was since we going to hoard it anyways. Whether or not inventory allows.
    Have a some sort of Armory with Acheivement and with rankings. Which also can be used as a dicitonary for the items and lore..stuffs.

    First u can deposit your unique into it only with full durability, then it tracks your collection on how big how complete.
    Which will kbe keep track for achievements.

    The items can be taken out with a hefty fee according to the item lvl?, but the durability drops to 1. And binded to account.
    Out of the armory it will be rerolled. So no data storage problems i think.

    IF BLizzard is saying it will be the big gold sink.

    I've already been working on this. The item list is subject to change until solid item data is posted but it should only take a day or so once we have that info.

    Check out this thread.

    I used to have two webpages that showed my smiter's inventory with mouseover displays of stats and looks like I'll be doing the same for legendary items, maybe make a huge stash page :D

    Well the key difference will be that save data is no longer local (hi cloud) so what you will be able to draw from really depends on when Blizzard puts out an armoury and what data it shows.

    The only source for my data was using tons of screenshots (lot of work)
