I’m not sure how everyone else feels about this, but upon challenging several players I noticed that although they have unique items (color of tunic), they actually aren’t equipped on the hero. I think there has to be something MORE than just an item looking pretty or different. If it’s unique ‘GREAT’, but I think it also has to be purposeful.
I think this is one item that you should be able to alter or equip the item with whatever element setup you require. For instance I have upgraded Ariadne’s boots and it is 7000 points higher than the fire item, but the element the boots are equipped with are useless for the setup I require
I’d be interested to hear what others think
