You only need 2 pages for stash now. Drops are so good you don't need to hold anything, maybe a few things. But 1 page dedicated to pages and unique items (foot, bell, etc), gems, and materials and 1 page for unique stuff. Everything prior to Loot 2.0 is garbage.
Well, you are right about previous loot beginning bait for enchanting materials. Which is only going to be repeated again when the expansion comes out. Everything you have now, will get replaced. However, if you build one of each character, and want different builds that require different gear -- which is kind of one of the main things about Diablo, right? Then there is not enough room for gear. Yes, if you pick a character and play it unendingly in the same way, the stash is big enough.

Now granted, I'm not out of space yet because I've only been playing for three week (as of today) and I only have two 60's each with only one build so far -- but I see the problem coming down the road. And as I said before, if PoE can literally have hundreds of tabs, Blizzard should be able to figure out how to charge me $20 for another one if I want it. If you don't want it, great!

Well, I crank up the difficulty, and don't think I have gone more than 30 minutes for a drop. Even got a couple in a very short time....Usually get 3-4 per ACT. Previous to Lot 2.0 - Maybe 1 every 40 hours.
So, you are playing what? Torment IV?

You'd think the money he could make off selling tabs would be even better -- but it hasn't happened.

Yeah, it was close for me. I get a fair amount of stuff from Amazon, but I usually get 3-5 day free shipping. I just added it up and I spent around $50 on shipping last year. So I'd have to double my orders for it to be worth it.

He was fortunate to hit the one story recycling center. If he had hit the ground he would be dead.

I read some where that the beta had five tabs, but Blizzard reduced it to three as a "performance enhancement". Supposedly the five tabs were using up too many resources -- which sounds like total bunk. Don't know if they actually said it, if they did and it's true it sounds like a really bad design problem.

So there's no sense loading it on new machines when it only has another 5 years of support left.
I'm certain the deadline for support on Win7 will get pushed back multiple times, as it did for Win XP.

Legendaries are dropping every few minutes, and almost all drops are for the character I am playing. I went through all of my gear and sold or salvaged.
Either RNG is being much kinder to you than to me, or this is an exaggeration. I'd say I average a Legendary every 60-90 minutes or so, although I haven't carefully timed it.

My biggest gripe so far -- the stash. Come on Blizzard, with PoE I can literally have hundreds of tabs. Let me buy some more tabs -- you like that micro-transaction stuff now.

117 hours in 2.5 weeks? Are you unemployed or something? Playing on the job? What's your secret?
Work full-time, but I am single. The 19 days covers three weekends, so figure 12 hours each Saturday and Sunday, that alone makes 72 hours. So that leaves only 4-5 hours a night on the weekdays...

I did. As well as hang out on BBS's. I considered starting an ISP business in 1995, I should have done it.

Nah, I want legit licenses for computers I'll buy after October. Did this for XP years ago. Bought a three pack of OEM licenses, one of the smartest things I ever did.

In case you missed it - D3 is 19.99 at Blizz right now. Can't complain at that price point! Loot 2.0 is a really nice change.

As I said in another topic: The on-line requirement does totally blow chunks. But even though I dislike it and think Blizzard deserves to be punished for doing it. I can't say I'm sorry I bought it 19 days ago. True, the down time on Tuesdays for patches and some occasional lag really sucks -- still I have to say I enjoyed the hell out of it, to the tune of 117 hours played already.

I remember the first time I saw Mosaic in early 1994. Even then when there weren't a ton of places to go, and most were all text -- it was clearly awesome and seemed likely to only get better, which obviously it did.

It one of the things I always consider a plus for living in Phoenix, no one complains when your "lawn" is gravel. Too bad it's so damn hot there.
