item upgrade should be a feature to bring back in the game all the non-event items nobody cares about right now. There are hundreds of common items that only slow down game(play) and are useless for most of the players. After the event-items were introduced nobody bothered about common stuff, we all wanted the event set items for obvious reasons. Before that i actualy checked players what they wear at fort fights, duels, jobsite as there was almost unlimited possible combinations (remember rhe "migthy brown tie ). No need for that right now as all top players wear 2 or 3 event sets. I have no solution how to do that but i thougth its something to consider.
