    Default How many spots?

    ...do folks generally keep open in their inventory? I've been going through and trying to clean up my menagerie, and I tend to find I'm not comfortable heading out into quests without, at minimum 10 slots available, preferably at least 15.

    So I was wondering what other folks do.

    My light based Shintao monk can run around with 50 or 60 slots free. She just doesn't need much to keep her going. Curses, diseases, and lesser restorations, are all covered by her finisher now. My rogue, on the other hand, is brimming with scrolls, wands, and pots. She's lucky to have 20 slots open going into a night of questing.

    I usually have between 1 and 2 empty inventory tabs for loot. I hate leaving stuff behind at level 28 I still pick up and sell pots from breakables.

    A minimum of two empty backpack tabs. My absolute preference is one tab filled with whatever I may need, and four open, but some toons just have too much junk. And I don't use most of it, but feel strange about going out without it. I need to really relook at all the junk I carry around.

    Depends on the character, their level (since i accumulate stuff) & whether or not they have UMD/half elf dilly, recently i LR'ed my UMD-capable monksplash thingy into a pure monk, and freed up 1.5 entire inventory pages, previously she only had 1 page available for questing - and thats with the full 6 tabs.
    I don't mean to come across as unsympathetic - but I am, so I do.

    One page and a half free ( 30ish slots ) is the bare minimum for me.
    There's some raids/quests where you will fill up that space ( Shroud, LOB/MA and Cannith quests in general with all the metal bits that drops )

    I can do quests with less exceptionally if I know there's no way the loot will reach the empty space.

    Depends on the character, though TYPICALLY I have at least one full pack tab empty at a minimum, often two or more (my eight main characters have every pack space unlocked, even the store-bought one). If I only had 5 pack spaces, it'd be a bit tighter, but I tend not to take giant piles of stuff with me. Usually just thieves tools (3-4 stacks), spell comps (if I'm a caster), misc odds and ends gear (swap-outs), and a few flavors of potions to deal with curses, blindness, etc. I don't carry like 9 different weapon sets, or 6 different staff/scepter combos.

    Same here. I'm a packrat, so I tend to pick up just about everything. Potions, gems, random plat, stray rocks, not-nailed-down boxes, etc.

    OP, this is not a Family Feud survey says kind of question, is it?

    For most of my characters its 4 to 6 slots open, I wouldn't mind a new bag of holding just for newly looted item. i.e. my junks bag to be sorted out at the Pawns Exchange.

    Anybody out there bother to use the Mark item as junk feature?

    This depends on the factor of how many bag tabs I have 5 or 6

    For my characters that only have 5 bag tabs I generally have 1 tab and a couple (2 to 3) empty slots

    For my characters that have 6 bag tabs I generally have 2 tabs

    Keep in mind that all but one of my characters is UMD capable, so many slots are dedicated to Survival or Buff scrolls.

    Now with all the changes to loot (ML etc) I've been doing a clean-up on Bank and TR Cache to eliminate items that I once thought - Hmmm, I may use this sometime. This includes removing Older Named Items that have now been updated with augments since there does not look like there will be a way to "update" them.

    Personally I recommend reviewing your pack every 5ish levels. Reason: I've discovered gear that was very useful at lower but was replaced/useless at higher levels that I was still carrying around with me when I was level 20.

    I use it all the time. I'll dump vendor trash into the shared bank account after flagging it junk for my haggle toon to sell. That way I don't have to recall why I put it in the bank.

    I usually try to keep 1-2 pages free on any character.

    I use this all the time, though I still tend to deconstruct most items into essences, but the marking makes it easier to keep track of things while in a dungeon, especially if I'm sure I just want to vendor something.

    I also use the list-view of my items when deconstructing, and consistently Lock items that I want to keep so I can toggle "only show unlocked items", making only new items show up in the list.

    Yes but for me it is mark to be deconstructed.

    Depends strongly on character. I will always make sure to have at least as many slots open as chests exist in whatever quest(s) I am about to run, but some characters can manage 40+ free slots easily.

    I use it as a "keep this" mark. For instance, if I loot a BtA random item from an end reward I will mark it thusly red so it stands out from other items (so it doesn't accidentally get deconned) and so it still shows up in the "only unlocked items" view. Marking the rare "keeper" item with the junk flag and leaving the multitude of junk items unmarked is more efficient than marking junk and unmarking "keepers".

    I keep at least the entire last inventory page open and free on all my characters (bank mules being the exception). During five years of play, I've had to make room for end reward loot exactly once. It was a heavy loot day.
