You keep your gear, but his point is that it becomes obsolete and you have to go and grind again to get a new one, and if you don't, the one who did decide to do the grind will end having huge advantages over you. There is no such things as risk vs reward in these types of game. It's more of a work vs reward. The more you play, the stronger your character get. While in full loot games, the more risks you take, the better your character is geared and it gives you an advantage, although not an insurmountable one like in the other system.AngryElf said:No, just stating the difference. No expansion I'm aware of is a full wipe. What you've earned stays on your character. Hard to be competitive with no gear.
