What gets improved on weapons under Governor's trait?

Blazer0981Blazer0981 Member Posts: 21
How exactly does it work for weapons? I finally won an improved assault weapon. Yet it was still only 1 star with the same trait as the other one I have just like it. Damage was the same, too.


So what's improved? Does it not affect 1 star items? I don't get it. I see the improved XP and supply rewards. No issues there. Just wondering why it says the weapon was improved if nothing changed? And if something did, then what was it?

Thanks.

    It must have been 1 level lower before it was "improved" then

    @Blazer0981 here is the description of the trait, it's only about increasing the level of the equipment:

    To my understanding The Governor's trait only increases xp and supplie crates. It has no affect on improving equipment.

    same here as TJS - played 50 rounds, every single xp crate affected, zero weapon crates.

    I find it interesting that players disagree. Perhaps provide some information that states anything about equipment improvement with the Governor's trait.
    Thanks

    I find information saying there's better chance of finding better equipment but nothing regarding equipment being improved.

    I have seen the message in gear - if I get it again, you'll get a screenshot. ;)

    Was still grey crap, but at least level 22 instead of 21. :s

    Works great for XP, though.

    That's also in the vid that played in the announcement yesterday.

    It's complete crap. They make you think that it will somehow give you 5* stuff, when, in fact, it doesn't even affect that.


    So, it says you have 12% chance of receiving higher level equipment. Why would I want higher level equipment? I already have almost 100 weapons that are levels I can't use yet.

    @Blazer0981

    Enjoy that feeling while it lasts. May seem frustrating now, but it's far more frustrating to need level 22 and all the legendaries you pull are 21 or below...

    Better to have something to work toward than to get a piece of gear with perfect traits that is a level too low.

    You will level up but you can never go back.

    I came here today with a thought in mind to create a thread to share the results of these "improvements", but I'll just post it here then.
    I'm 60 lvl with 20 lvl survivors. Seven screens are below:

    Someone seems to have replaced your fully-upgraded legendary gear with a gray and dreary day...but one level higher!

    Trait might be useful for XP and Supply scavenge, but not convinced yet it's better than Maggie or Glenn unless speed farming on a booster.

    Not exactly... for some players he will cost 76 stars :wink:
    Plus time and gas invested in season missions, minimal as it may be. Not as free as, say, an epic Golden Lucille or Morgan's staff.

    @Shteevie How's these kind of misleading information from the video happened?
    There is NO higher rarity when we use all legendary to craft the badge, we are being punished for having a chance to get LOWER rarity.
    This is NOT WORKING AS INTENDED & it's UNFAIR.

    Complete bs. Good thing I haven't done the last mission yet. Never wanted him before, definitely don't want him now.

    So I takr it that if you are at lvl 63 with lvl 22 survivors then you don't get the trait bump for equipment? I have yet to see any equipment of mine get a "reward improved"
  • gespuergespuer Member Posts: 1,565
    Does his trait mean we're supposed to receive lvl 23 equipment if we're on camp lvl 63?

    No, 22 is the max level at the moment.
