Yeah, I didn’t know how to phrase it in the title.
So my idea is that maybe items that are only L-M should be expanded to epic, or even rare. For example, take Zarkares. Every heat user loves Zark (I think). It’s great stats allow to be one of the best heat torsos. Now imagine if all the newbies could get access to a rare version of that. They could start learning how to use strategy in their builds. This is already implemented in Corrupt Light for example (there’s a rare version).
So instead of a drop rate buff (which I think we need anyways), we could have this system in which rarer items will drop more because of them having a lower rarity. This is also beneficial for pros, if they need a…idk…Flaming Scope, they could find it at rare and boost it to Legendary or Mythical or whatever they need.
This process can also be turned around to make “noob items” be able to go to E-L-M. Like Royal Launcher (wait nvm we have Supreme Launcher), or Crazed Repeater, or Scalpel.
Anyways, leave feedback guys, tell me the flaws in the idea, If it just sucks, don’t be afraid to say so.
