I am currently at level 34 and have a whole collection of the old high quality items, rares, uniques, crafted and upgraded. Some of them played quite a role in missions and defenses until they became obsolete. I keep them because they are high quality items and some even have a sentimental value, I am reluctant to just get rid of them, yet they are of no use to me anymore. So these things are just sitting there in the inventory.
I would gladly give these items to lower level players which would put them in good use, however the game does not have such option. It would be great to have "Give a gift" option while visiting another player's compound. Gifts could include items as well as resourses. I understand that all players have to do their job, go on mission and scavenge for items and resourses, therefore the number of gift slots can be limited to 2-3 and a friequency of gifts may be also limited to one per week per friend or so.
I hope that I am not the only one who is willing to help the lower level players rather than crash old items in recycler.
Thank you for reading this.
