IMHO level limits on gear is THE DUMBEST and most UNREALISTIC thing I can
think of. How about making it so newbies cant' GET the high level gear? The
reasons they have it is: A high level gave it to them, hence there is an
overabundance, they stole it (every right to have it then), or a player had
a high level char and remade a new one, keeping the old gear (nothing you
can do about that, and he has a right to keep his gear)

Try solving the problem beforwe you impose somehting most players detest and
something so utterly unrealistic.
