The gears dilemna : Legendary 23 or common 24 ?

The 2.5 offers new opportunities ... scavenging the lands, I've found mostly common 3* gears, lvl 21 that goes to 24, with interresting (but weak) traits.
So the question is : shall we prefer upgrading common gear to the higher lvl 24, or is it better to remain with most of our survivors geared with legendary lvl 23 ? I'd like to have your point of view in here

    Leg 20 is always better than rare 21 because of the better % on traits.

    @CRUSH ok so in ur opinion, even upgraded to lvl 24 any green common gear 3 star should be weaker than leg 23 ?
    Thanx for your view on that. Does lvl of traits always prevails to lvl of gears ?

    The basic power of rare 21 is about the same like leg 20. Guess, leveling wouldn't change anything.

    Common gear only has 1 upgrade so max it will get to at base Lvl 21 is max Lvl 22

    Guess, common 3* should mean rare.

    Not even a dilemma. Legendary 23 over rare 24. Save your XP and time and get better traits with a comparable amount of damage/health.

    @dlich the statement of @CRUSH was right, I meant 3 stars= green=rare , found lots of it for each class, base lvl21, so each of its 3 traits makes +1 lvl, and it leads to a max lvl of 24 .
    But as @JayZ stated , legendary 23 high traits on a gear is always better than the health/damage you gain only upgrading a 3stars gear to +1 , 23 to 24 .
    - I'll always prefer my legendary katana 135° lvl 23 than a rare one with just 90° (it kills more walkers in 1 strike;) -

    For the rest I still found a few leg 21 base gear, and that will rock (as soon as my workshop to upgrade them lol)

    BTW , I'm looking for a new guild to go for next challenge, if someone needs my services...
    Thanks to all

    Thanks @DLich , I'm an ex-smoker too, and this analogy helps me a lot to remember
    that I don't wanna go back smoking. Ever.
    So am gonna scrap all these poor 3stars lvl21-based gears, and see what future offers.
    Just gonna keep that 3 stars flamethrower to see what it can do at lvl24

    Yes, green rare tobacco is better than brown common tobacco because the traits are better.

    Is a golden shower better than a green shower?

    Well, in the blue shower vein, Melange anyone?

    I can confirm that a level 23 legendary weapon with gold skull has a higher damage impact than a level 24 legendary weapon without gold skull.

    That seems like a design flaw...
