For something that does not impact the gameplay being so hardily defended by the old guard so much, D2:R will not retain a lot of player beyond Xmas. Only bots and pro-JSPers will remain. Perhaps this is what they want, to keep their economic schemes intact?
I really find it dumb that whenever I find a duplicate of a unique with a roll bracket, I have to first find it on the proper mule, compare say it’s ED%, then trash the lower version and swap it to the mule, which leads to 2-4 game creations. With Plugy being the norm for most players/streamers that were holy grailing for 20 years, I was expecting muling not only to be obsolete, but a way to give gold some value outside of gambling where you could unlock additional tabs for gold (1M, 2M, 3M, 4M, etc.). No need to increase the max gold any character could hold, just make it a progress bar like experience where you buy % of a new tab whenever you have a bit a gold leftover. No more room? No problem, just farm Travincal for a few hours, like people who gamble do.
Or just give 100 pages, whatever. Muling is really archaic.
