    [blizzard=http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1869218245?page=4#63]No, I don't. I'd kind of like to see what you're keeping around...

    I decided to take Bash up on his challenge:

    Who else has massive collections of useless crap they will never use just sitting around on 1/2 a dozen alts each with a different guild for more guild banks

    Going from sunwell to WOTLK was fun though, I made ~15K on the AH in a week clearing everything out. You should have seen what my banks looked like before that (and then again before we faction changed)

    Takes 3 20-slot bags just for all the damn holiday crap you're afraid to get rid of because of possible new achieves in the future and having to re-farm it...

    They should give us a Tab for Tabards like they did with Pets and Mounts.

    Just a thought - but i've heard (or not?) that you are supposed to have an achievment for learning all glyphs?
    Also an achi and meta achi for learning all flight points you can would be a nice thing too

    I recall them talking at Blizzcon about the possibility of making tabards a drop down like like titles. I was a terrible pack rat also and would of happily paid gold for more bag slots.

    I'm in the same boat. Some old rep things that I thought were carry on through patches and expansions have since been dubbed as trash, but I still hang onto it JUST IN CASE.

    Sometimes I end up using my mailbox as another bank. Once mail expires, it gets sent back to the original toon, where it sits til I send it again to make sure it doesn't get deleted.

    Collecting implies display of said collected items.

    This may sound like trolling BUT I am not. I am stating a fact. Collectors hold their items and show them off. The hording yes hording of bars, leather, etc. is just that. Hording. Its creating emotional attachment to non existent items, or using theoretical scenario's to justify the keeping of said items.

    I do collect items in game. I collect my various item sets from xpack to xpack. But then I only keep helm, shoulder, and body. The visible components, and before cataclysm release I vendored nearly ALL of these items to free up space for cata. Sure refarming it was a pain but worth it if you truly enjoy it.

    lol@ "we invite anything that moves to the guild."
