First, I want to state that this will NEVER happen!
BUT, if it did, in the event we get some future system where we are allowed to level up our gear through a grind system or luck-based system: How many of you are happy and eager because you save everything vs terribly distraught because you don’t have anything old?
I had a few LVL50 items that I sold long ago. They were God Rolls to me. A really good Blast Master COM with +Grenades since I like to spam Grenades. Some shock grenade with +Regen annoint that I used for Amara. I think my first ever God Roll shield was a Purple Shield with +health regen/+health drop/+hp regen annoint. This was perfect for me because I had so much trouble staying alive on M3. Used it on all my 4 characters.
