Yes, that is the same title as some of those TLC and Discovery Channel shows about the folks who fill their house with stuff… and lots of stuff.
Well, my main Khraden may as well be diagnosed with that mental disorder. My wife and I have recently been watching those shows, amazed at the accumulation of things people collect, and just can’t get rid of. However, after thinking about it, I realized that I am the same way with Khraden.
At this moment if you looked into my bank, you’d see all bag slots bought, filled with either Imbued Netherweave bags or Frostweave bags. Each of those bags and the main bank window is full. Maybe there is a spot or two available, but not often.
One of the noticable things in there… flavor items. I love them, I have a ton of them, I have some from quests that not many people have ever done. In addition to flavor items, I have nearly two entire rows of weapons. Now these weapons are either cool looking (to me), or have some kind of flavor text. An example of that being Taigasha, the “Magnataur Slayer”. I don’t even use it, nor have I ever, but I thought it was unique, and plus it’s really big for a one-handed sword. I also have a vast assortment of Tabards (still working on getting the “Tabard of the Achiever” achievement), several items that have no use, but are unique, such as the photo of “Linken” and his lady friend. I even have Linken’s Boomerang and Linken’s Sword of Mastery, both of these from one of the most fun questlines in the game, and an awesome homage to the Zelda series.
Some other interesting items include the Monster Slayer’s Kit, Argent Dawn Banner, and the full “Undead Slaying” gearset from the second Scourge Invasion (mostly because I love the look of the Paladin’s Tier 2 Judgement set). In addition to little items like this, I also have a few sets of gear that I just can’t get rid of. Some of them being the full purple Judgement set from Burning Crusade, the blue/gold Lightforge set, and some of the old Lieutenant Commander’s Aegis set from when I used to PvP more. I could go on and on with what is in there, but it would take forever, and be comparable to one of Big Bear Butt’s Bearwalls.
I do have some useful items in there though. In fact I have an entire set of Retribution gear for both PvE and PvP, a few spots of some materials for cooking/enchanting, and a couple of spots for letters that people sent to me in game back when my wife’s grandfather and later when my grandfather passed away.
I hope to soon post a picture of my current bank. The only issue I have is that I can’t move any of this to a bank alt, as nearly all of it is BoP, and already Soulbound to me. Well, cie la vie, you win some, you lose some.
Do you collect things, whether they be useful or not, and just can’t get rid of them?
