Most players are happy with the quality of life changes in Diablo 2 Resurrected whether it be shared stash or auto gold pickup. Blizzard has released this post which explains what’s happening with the Diablo 2 Resurrected Classic stash size.
In Diablo 2 “classic” the stash size contains 24 slots and it’s doubled to 48 in the LoD expansion. So what they are saying is that if you created a “Classic” character, you would not benefit from the stash size increase. This is effectively how the game works currently but some players wanted to see “Classic” characters being able to utilize a larger stash.
The larger stash appeared in the LoD expansion to accommodate new larger but game-changing items such as Charms so it was deemed warranted at the time. Stash size has always been an important part of the game mechanics which meant players had to make difficult choices. Blizzard has been concerned about staying as close to the original Diablo 2 as possible but obviously decided that perhaps an increased stash size on classic, which many players wanted to see, could impact those players who want the game to stay exactly as it was.
What are your thoughts on this? Should Blizzard have put the larger stash into the “Classic” D2R or leave it as it was originally?
