My girlfriend and I bought Diablo 3 specifically so that we could play couch co-op mode on Xbox 360. We have no interest in playing online or either of us playing solo. Since we're always in co-op mode, we can't do anything with the followers.
For awhile we've just been stashing all of the follower-only items that we pick up with the intention that MAYBE one of us would get around to playing solo strictly to beef up the followers. But lately we've been thinking that would be a total waste of time since the followers never join us anyway.
So is it better to just salvage these items as we find them or is there any possible way of using either the items or the followers in co-op mode? (Also, just last night we picked up ROS for Xbox 360 if that makes any difference in the answer.)
