    Shared Stash "3" Tabs Room for 5?

    Hey guys, for anyone who is in the beta test or has played the Open beta you are probably aware that the shared stash has 3 tabs when it clearly offers room for 5. I was just wondering what the opinion was from the players? Do you think blizzard might monitize the stash in some way? (ie seeing each additional slot on the blizzard store.) It is a scary thought but I have not seen anyone mention the stash before.

    A link to the picture of the stash below:

    http://www.diablo3professions.com/w...3/diablo_3_shared_stash_upgrade_first_tab.jpg

    It seems with only 3 tabs currently shared between ALL possible characters(10 per account) that your potential storage space will be grossly smaller than what we had in Diablo 2 muling(Stash + character inventory)

    What are your Opinions? Thoughts? Concerns?



    cheers.

    Are you serious?? WTF is happening to blizzard and why do they keep force feeding us BS? Diablo 2 has no problems storing item Data and neither does WOW. How does Battle.net deevolve so badly after 1.0. It just seems like alot of excuses. The same kind of horse **** they try to feed down our throats that people dont want a social network(a robust chat interface) . It's all money making BS. And bashiok has no clue wtf he is talking about. If people had a full account of mules in d2 it only comes to reason that people will want just as much room in d3. How much do you want to bet we see "INCREASE YOUR STASH FOR ONLY $X.XX" on the blizzard store.

    The average player did not have tons of mule accounts in D2. Calm down.

    I don't think they'll monetize it just like that. If they do, it will be part of an expansion.
    But they'll probably just patch them in at a later point.

    Whoah, calm down indeed. Another example of why you should breath first and slowly count to ten before posting.

    I happen to think there is enough mule space for now. Unlike in D2, the biggest items are two slots big. Salvaged materials stack up to 100. More stash space means I'll just be hoarding more crap.

    And I am pretty confident stash space will increase if Blizzard feels the servers are up to it in a future patch. Free of charge. The Blizzard store is for extra vanity content, not in-game utilities.

    Re: Shared Stash "3" Tabs Room for 5?

    All materials are stackable and items are 1 or 2 slots, instead of 1-8 slots in D2... in average one item in D3 probably takes one third of the slots average item took in D2. We have 205 slots just in shared stash... that alone should be way more than one full mule account in D2 could keep, not to mention we also have ability to make more characters per account, so if you somehow manage to fill your stash you can just make a few mule characters and use their inventory space.

    I'm willing to bet up to low 4 figures (USD) that they don't, if you really are interested PM me. I have the same SN at 2+2 forums with 6k posts and I can probably get some reputable poker players or sportbettors to escrow the bet if needed.

    Inventory space which is also a lot bigger than the space in D2, might I add.

    I love it! It'd be great to see how many conspiracy theorists on this forum are willing to put their money where their mouth is.

    Re: Shared Stash "3" Tabs Room for 5?

    Its my opinion that we will eventually have 5 slots again, be it from us buying them or more likely when the xpac hits. I really hope we can get more in the future since I am positive there is not enough for me. the idea of stashing items in my character inventory is horrible to me, the entire point of the stash is to avoid doing that

    A D3 account will have 810 storage slots. A d2 account had 704 (768 with a cube on every character). Items were also MUCH bigger in D2, and probably consumed at least twice as much space as a D3 item.

    On top of that, it was really easy to end up with wasted space on mules b/c you would have something like an armor mule and all of the armors were 3x2 which left a 2x6 area in your stash and a 1x8 space in your character inventory where only non-armor pieces like belts, rings, etc could fit... which, if filled, made it even harder to organize mules.

    We are going to be able to store plenty of items in D3.

    Nowadays an entire D2 stash + inventory filled with gems would probably be a handful slots in D3.

    Simple solution for the hoarders. Sell enough of your hoarded goods on the RMAH, purchase 2nd copy of D3, mule account successful!

    Re: Shared Stash "3" Tabs Room for 5?

    Given that the stash is shared through entire account, I find it really small.
    In case of some items, if you take d2 account, add all capacity of stash, cubes of all chars, you can store more items than on d3 account.. (depends on item types, if you pick 8 grid pikes than ofc not).
    I find it ridiculous that in 2012 they can't provide much larger storage space, storage space for sure is not an excuse for this (1000 pages of items would need less than 1mb data to storage). It is probably issue with simultaneous access to databases, but still they should put all their resources to make this stash at least 10 times larger. These space is ridiculusly limited for a game that comes out in 2012.

    It is hard to believe but, people will find themselves... MULING items after all these years. I though that was one of their priorities to get rid of that.

    At least 10 times larger? What on earth are you going to stash? With the biggest items taking only 2 slots and lots of "keepable items" (materials, gems, ...) being stackable, there is a lot more space than you think.

    Re: Shared Stash "3" Tabs Room for 5?

    i hate how people keep comparing it to d2. the d2 system of storing items was horrible it was one of the worst things about that game. diablo games are all about the loot. so dont you think they should give us enough space to keep all the loot? i could care less about the AH (gold or real money) and i have no intention to use it (buy or sell). i like finding my items and keeping them. i want a space for every single unique + set item in the game. will i find them all? i highly doubt it but i want the space for the ones i do find. now i think 3 tabs is more than enough for launch but eventually those tabs will get full and i will require more space


    edit: also i am only counting on stash size. the character inventory should never be used to store items. we only have 10 character slots and i need them all

    I love retroactive rage posts.

    Does anyone know how much it costs to unlock the third tab?

    Yeah putting a severe limitation on the game is always a "feature" and a great idea.

    Re: Shared Stash "3" Tabs Room for 5?

    Fact is, that very few people are going to need more storage than we have. With the RMAH and Gold AH, most people will be selling their gear when they get it. There wont be anywhere near the hoarding in D3 simply because of the AH's. Its hardly going to be a severe limiting feature.
