Solution to carrying over gear

Although I'm against wiping us clear of sweet items it seems there is no real way to give them to us without making us OP at launch. So I've been thinking about it and i think ive realized the best way to please both sides. The best way to do this is if we kept all of our gear but we would have to reach level 8 over again to unlock all of it. That way weren't ahead of the game yet we will still have the loot we worked hard for. Thoughts?

  • All I want to keep is the class items so the capes and titian waist cloth. I found a level 10 blue one that looks pretty cool and have a level 8 Iron crucible one. These don't do anything but make you look cool. Purely looks only.

  • Eh. Not horrible. But I'm still inclined to vote for a wipe... Though I did spend 4500 on a dead orbit scarf...

  • that seems reasonable to me, we took the time to beta test the game, so its the least we deserve

      Would be a great way to test the servers/save cloud if everyone puts the stuff they wanna keep in a vault for transfer. We dont have an hdd save slot so this may need testing? I'm pro-transfer, I think this is a great idea

      • It's called a beta for a reason, it's to test the game for Bungie so they can improve and balance the game for a better experience for everyone when it releases. I won't be surprised and won't care if they reset everything.

          Help me to understand why: 1) people think that keeping your rank is same thing as keeping your loot? 2) keeping loot makes players over-powered when loot is linked to rank? If you have to wipe one, most likely the rank will get wiped because that is the determining factor of your progress. We'll all have to rank up again, so the loot is rendered unusable until we re-rank. I want to keep my best finds in the vault, just in case I don't find something as competitive on my re-rank. Plus, each piece of loot may hold some fond memories.

          • Would just like to drop this here, I really dont understand how people are saying if we get to keep our gear we will be too op. I have 2 main thought on this #1. All of the blue and purple items i have cant be used until levels 10 and 20 respectfully so come launch day people wouldn't even be able to use these items until they reach the appropriate rank, I highly doubt by the time you hit 20 someone who did not play the beta wouldnt have already found a legendary item/wep that competes with yours #2 if people are saying you will be OP in the crucible, how might I ask? everything is equalised in the crucible so your legendary handcannon is going to be just as effective as someones shitty white handcannon. The only time as far as we know where stats arent equalised is in iron banner, and honestly if you dont have the best gear you can possibly find you shouldn't even be competing in IB TL/DR I think rank should be reset but gear kept

            • Ok so it would be amazing if our stuff carried over. You wouldnt be too op cuz all the best stuff is over rank 8. And imagine if all the xp you earned after the rank cap was reached was carried over than its like an instant lvl 15 or so.

            • I didn't even think it was possible until I saw some articles against it, so the chorus of anti-carry overs illuminated me on this possibility (thanks!). Then I though, "you know Cr4sh that's not a bad idea; after all, it's virtually the same build and this is a public beta." So, I would totally support your idea and I think it should happen.

            • I think they are giving us the exclusive player card for playing the beta tomorrow as the thing we get to carry over. I am satisfied with that. I don't really care if we keep our stuff or not, I have some nice things, but I'm sure Ill gets some better stuff. There are a lot more strike missions, planets, and things to buy in the full version so I'm sure starting over will be just fine.

                • its a good idea, but if we start over we have to replay the story and have to go through devils lair at lvl 6ish again. then face the eye ball eye i forgot his name. and it took me 3 hours because of the devils lair. considering they're also letting us play on the moon tomorrow and play the missions there it would be kinda stupid to wipe us clean of everything and make us start all over again. you feel me ?

                    • It's a beta. Personally I'd be happy if nothing carried over. I had a pretty good taste of something fantastic, now I'm happy to wait for the main course.

                      • Why not just keep anything and everything you put in your vault? then you could transfer a limited amount of items while still being able to keep the exclusive ones... like the iron banner class items and weapons

                      • carry over things that wouldn't give us an actual advantage but that would save us time such as the 20 ghosts we revived.

                      • To be fair, lots of us would be getting too much if the stuff did carry over. I got the Ghost Edition on order. So, I'd get all of the content from that, pre-order content, AND everything I've gotten from the Beta. That's too much to get day 1.

                      • You will fly past level 8, and even 20 before long, after the full game comes out and all the "sweet" items you've collected in the beta will be worthless and quickly replaced by even more awesome gear suited to your (and your enemies') level. You found rare items once and it didn't take long; you'll be able to do it again, don't worry. =)

                        • The advantage we had was playing the game before launch people, we already know where to go, what to do, and how to do it! What more do you want. Who cares if all the gear and guardians are wiped?! We played for 1 week...what did you get in 1 week that you are positive is better than what you will get by playing 2 weeks? All the gear people are holding on to in hope is like level 9-11...you will use that for literally 3 hours if they don't wipe. The only thing I would like to see not reset is minor, it is our grimoire stats, I would like to keep the 2k of fallen I have killed, but I am fine with that going away too!
