The breakfast topic for today over at WoWinsider is asking about vanity items people are holding onto.
As a druid packrat, I started wondering about what kind of junk I have been holding onto in Lissanna’s bank. So, I figured I’d log into the game, peak in my bank, and talk about what completely useless stuff I have in my bank just because I can’t stand the idea of vendoring it. It’s pretty much like taking a stroll down raiding history. There’s gear from pretty much every raid instance that I’ve held onto.
My worst packrat offense is holding onto old tier sets. While I haven’t had enough bank space to hold onto all of them, I do have 7 out of 8 pieces of the Stormrage set (missing the shoulders, which sucks for using it as an RP set). I also held onto the Genesis shoulders, boots, & helm. I’ll probably still have this assortment of gear in my bags for as long as I have a WoW account. For some reason, I have such a strong attachment to this gear that I refuse to let it go.
For more asthetic purposes, I’m holding onto my Stranglestaff (you never know when you’ll need to pull out a giant squid on a stick!).
I still have the Scepter of Celebras, and Mallet of Zul’Farrak which I didn’t know until 2 minutes ago were no longer keys that I needed to go back into ZF and Maraudon (even though I have no desire to ever go there again). I had so much random gear in my bank, I didn’t even notice they weren’t keys anymore. They’ll probably stay in my bank and get thrown out when I need more space for extra useless junk…
I gave up skinning when Burning Crusade came out, but I still have my trusty Finkle’s Skinner, since if I throw it out, I might need it again, even though mining and jewelcrafting are way better professions.
That’s just a small selection of what I have in my bank that isn’t actually functional or useful outside of holding onto old memories of when Lissanna was a young druid…
