@gearbox We need one. We need a gear level up machine. We need a way to update our gear when level caps are increased. And we need a way to level up an item when we are trying higher mayhem levels and want to use gear that used to serve us well.
You have created a gear system that produces very unique items. I love that. But going back out to refarm at higher level caps doesn’t quite cut it. The chances of getting that unique item we loved to drop again at a higher level seem very slim. Will it have the right parts and the right annointment? Not likely.
For me this currently creates a disincentive to play at the “max level” for very long. Because after 1 to 3 months you might increase the “max level” again and invalidate my special finds.
I’m one of your best fans from the very start. Release day of Borderlands 1. We’ve always needed a gear level up machine in every borderlands. But the problem is compounded in Borderlands 3. From the frequent level cap increases, to the very unique items, I just don’t feel like playing at max level very long. Why should I bother hoarding and farming items right now?
Instead I have been creating new low level characters or playing other games. I’d rather be enjoying the endgame right now and then enjoying new levels to raise up to, because I could use my old gear at the new level cap.
Eridium, cash, xp, time, a new currency, whatever, could be used to to level up older items.
Please make a machine or feature to do this and let me know when it happens.
Mods. Please dont merge this topic. I don’t want it lost in the other threads. Besides. The topic says it all. If we follow this thread and it does happen, we should all know when a gear level up option appears.
