So, I basically keep all legendaries I find/receive. Except worse versions of a legendary I already have. But I’ll mail away the worse version to a friend.
And then annointed effects ; I keep most annointed items I find (unless I judge it as too weak or a bad combo). By now my bank and packpack are already full 6 times over just from that. Using a splitscreen mules for that and the legendaries.
Then I keep most almost every purple and legendary class mod I find. That’s 4 full splitscreen mules.
I often keep a lot of purples and blues and mission reward items because reasons. 10 split screen mules for that.
The rest of my mules are probably items I thought were useful as I was leveling up and would hand off to my next character. Besides legendaries I’m mostly going to drop most purples less than level 49. Some exceptions (really good cash mirv atlas grenade for example). But those are filling up with level 50 purples as I do this.
The terror system has forced me to fill up about 5 mules with gear.
Why do I store so many items? I don’t know if I’ll see that item drop again so I keep it in case I have a use for it on one of my characters at some point. I was really hoping we would have seen a better storage solution in BL3. Love this game but we could use something to help. A gun book for example that would let you respawn items you’ve found before. That would help immensely.
