PW Gears level requirements make high level Gears crappy

Problem you’re trying to solve
High level PW gears pretty much suck now.

How you currently feel about this in-game and how you think you should feel
It feels like the best gears in the game are the level 11 gears. Mainly because you can use them easily on any character. I basically sell all 30+ gears unless its ‘perfect’, the stat bonuses are largely irrelevant and they are useless for leveling a new character. Level 11 is the top tier meta by a huge margin… which feels stupid

Any ideas you have on how things could be improved, fixed, or add more fun to the experience
Could be reasonably fixed by removing level requirement for gears and replacing with PW tier requirement. So a T6 PW could basically use any T6 or lower gear from level 0 (so that T6 level 55 gear can be used to develop a new character), but a T3 PW would never be able to use gears above T3 etc.

Downside to this is making PW gear drops to a T3 useless around level 30, but that’s better than the current meta where level 11 is top of the pyramid. An arguable benefit is that it would drive the upgrade to the next tier PW.

Certainly doesn’t make much sense. Buck hinted to a change in the Level/Rank reqs in the next hotfix so let’s see if they can fix things properly: https://forum.bigtime.gg/t/level-requirements-for-high-level-items-only
