Account Wide Storage

Friday! It's all about the Reader Post people. Who cares if it is the day before the weekend. Who cares if you got something amazing planned. It is time for the Reader Post. The post of the week where it is all made up of your opinions. This week I wanted to know what you all thought of the shared stash and the gold stash in Diablo III and if it would be welcomed in WoW. So let's see what everyone had to say.

I think they are already implementing it with the Void Storage in some respects. They are testing it out to see how it works and go from there. They just have to figure out a way to make it not work cross faction and deal with soul bound items. Everyone knows even Blizzard that the mailbox is used for storing items doing something like this would put a lot less strain on the system.

Looks like a great idea as long as it doesn't result in items not becoming soul bound. I think this would really take away form the game especially if you put tier gear and some how a drop you got on your hunter can now be worn by your priest because the drop belongs to your account.

I think it would be really dumb. Imagine starting a character off and already having access to all your gold Horde or Alliance. It would make the game extremely unbalanced and something I don't think a lot of people will stand for.

This would be the best idea they ever came up with. Everyone knows we get around this already with the neutral auction house and the mailbox. Why not just remove that step. It is not like people will stop doing it, and Blizzard allows this to happen. Just put it in and be done with it.

As long as they make it a Horde and Alliance separate storage I am all for it. I am also not against an item being account bound and not soul bound. If you are there for a drop then it is the players drop not the class that was there for it. Blizzard has stated it is all about the specific player and not the class they are playing so it is simple do away with soul bound and just make everything account bound.

There you have it that is it for this week. Thank you to everyone for submitting your responses they are very much appreciated. As always if you are interested in taking part in next week's Reader Post make sure to check out Sunday's Ask Gauss post for the topic. Enjoy your weekend everyone!


  1. As the one person said people do it anyway so why not jsut make it possible. Only makes sense. Plus I hate having to log on other characters just to keep sending them gold.

  2. dude, i didnt even know you were alive. do you even still play?
