Hoarding in-game items

For some of us that play online MMO’s it is easy to hold on to items that have little or no significance, but how rampant is this going on. It is easy to lose track of items that are stored in your bank or guild bank

We have all seen the hoarding shows on TV this is defiantly a problem in real life but are you a hoarder in game too? Sorry to make light of someone else addiction but I want to know if you are hoarding in-game items.

Hoarding In-Game Items

I have two friends that I can always count on if I need and obscure item in-game I ask them and they are bound to have the Item, no matter how rare. Would I consider them hoarders of in-game items? Absolutely, not that it’s a bad thing.

I have never felt the need to stock up on stuff for myself in game, when I do stock up it is normally because it is something fellow guild mates might be able to use or I got a really good deal on something.

The hoarder of achievements!

I can say that I do hoard achievements. Achievements are great at telling how much of the world you have explored and if you have completed most of the in-game content.

I would say that is different only for the reason that that I’m using it as my completion meter.

So today I ask you, are you hoarding in-game items?

    One of the podcasters I listen to is obsessed with amassing achievements. He even buys terrible games for little kids as they offer easy achievements.

    In terms of in game items I didn’t hoard much during my MMO days. In DAOC I did however keep an item that gave me a plus one bonus. I thought it was funny as it said +1 but didn’t say what the bonus was for (i.e strength, or int.)

    DAOC had a lot of missing text in the early days, which made it fun to find out what you would find.

    I’m not obsessed with achievements but it is a good gauge for your progress in game.

    most def a hoarder, not of achievements – i must either suck or play the wrong games – but boosts, buffs, shielding and that kind of thing.
