I tend not to save things. The only vanity items I have tucked away in my vault are Barov Peasant Collar (I've never used it, but I just don't want to get rid of it for some reason), and my Perfectly Calibrated Broomstick, which is the first and only world-drop BoE epic I've ever gotten my hands on. The vend price for it isn't worth the sadness/guilt I'd feel down the line having sold it. I also have saved the dresses that came as rewards for Love is in the Air and the Lunar Festival, and will probably do so with any other special event clothing items as they come along.Given the option for player housing, or basically unlimited storage, I'd probably save a LOT more things. I'd love to have a player or guild house where I could mount my weapons on the wall. Or special pieces of armor. But since I have no way to show those off other than going to my vault and staring into it, right now, they get vended when I replace them. It's just not worth the vault space.I do like to collect vanity pets I guess, but since they aren't something I can really out-level and they no longer take up inventory space, I don't consider those to be things I hoard that have no purpose.I have a friend who runs around hunting down old pieces of armor/gear just for the fun of it. That's something I don't understand the desire for, especially when it's something I've outleveled by 20-30 levels. To each their own though. I mean, yes, there are some really cool pieces that would look good on me, and some awesome cloth robes (I'm a warrior). But realistically, I'm not going to ever wear them in combat or doing anything that requires me to be at my peak skills-wise. I can see the purpose of changing outfits for RP-type things, but I'm not in an RP guild or on an RP server.We all have our little quirks that keep us playing the game long after we're level capped though. For me now, it'll be achievements. For some people, it's collecting old gear. To each their own. That's what's great about this game.
