The portable loot bag was never enough in a Diablo game – that’s why you had the good ol’ stash in the region’s relatively safer town. Diablo III is going to be no different, as the stash concept has been retained. But it’s more than the conventional stash of Diablo II; Diablo III introduces a new stash concept: the shared stash.
Remember the times when you found a ‘Necromancer-only’ head in Diablo II – with awesome stats that could amp your abilities in ways you could only have imagined – but were left disappointed as you were playing as a Barbarian, and you had never come across the item while playing the Necromancer?
Well, the solution to that problem has been apparently solved thanks to the shared stash. It’s a stash that isRockstar Announces Game of the Year Edition of Red Dead Redemption Find a vital item and it put it into that stash, and you can use it for one of the other more needy characters in your account. However, what the shared stash cannot do is store gold; meaning you can’t make a clever transaction from one rich character to a relatively poorer character through the stash.
In fact, there will be no real ‘poor’ or ‘rich’ character, as the gold you earned is globalized, hence being a pooled resource that’s usable by all the characters on a specific Diablo III account.
The shared stash will consists of multiple tabs and slots. Initially, you’ll start off with just one tab. However, later on you can purchase more tabs for gold, with the maximum tabs being up to 5 with 350 slots in total of shared storage.
Another interesting aspect of the shared stash is that it cannot be shared with hardcore characters. Hardcore characters cannot share loot, auction house, or gold pool with normal characters and vice versa, as they belong in a category of their own. However, multiple Hardcore characters can share a shared stash, auction house and gold pool which is completely separate from the normal characters.
