I keep a log with me on my home desktop whenever I make significant upgrades, and these include the names of all the items that I have used in the past. Call that OD if you will, and I'll admit it is.
So I looked up "Feather Sacrifice," a wand that I used from mid-June all the way until late-August when I started progressing at a higher rate. It was probably one of my most memorable weapons simply because I found it (was also the "best" item I had for a long time) in a random Act 3 run.
Sure enough, I found it on player "Zyndeth#1706": http://www.diablopro...yndeth/14211374
It's the same weapon! I'm glad someone is still using it and it never ended up at the blacksmith or the vendor.
For the people who thought highly of some of their self-found gear and just had that somewhat gut-wrenching feeling of letting it go at one point, it's cool to know that your gear is helping someone else out right now.
Edit: I just realized this topic has no real discussion value whatsoever, and I really should just start a blog for these threads instead.
