[BUG] Vault Hunter pre-order relic can be overwritten

I lost the preorder vault hunter relic (+5% rare drop) by holding X on a relic drop while my inventory was full, and instead of dropping/switching the relic, it just overwrote it.

so just a word of warning.

if it is really that important to you, you can always start a new character (who will have the relic) and use claptraps box to move the relic back and forth.

also, i noticed in TVHM, that you can access the box from claptraps lair, thus saving you from having to get all the way to sanctuary. however, i do not know if this is true at all times or if it is just a feature of TVHM.

Are you sure about that? Because I thought you couldn't move that Vault Hunter's Relic at all. It can't be traded, dropped, or stored. That it can only be sold. I could be wrong though.

You are. I know for a fact I have stored it both in my bank and in claptraps locker. I do not have a second charecter to confirm that it would transfer.

i just started a new character, and you are correct- every character you create (im assuming under the gamertag associated with preorder) will have the relic when you begin the game.

i was under the impression that you only get one (like the golden key?)

Second question then: does the Relic improve chances of obtaining legendary weapons as well? Or just purples?

Just so you know, it's not just the relic that this happens to. It can happen to anything, I had it happen to an assault rifle. And no, it wasn't one of the gearbox golden guns from the premier club.

My understanding from another post I read in these forums is that all it does is lower the chance of getting white items and raise the chance of getting green items. So, no effect on blues or purples.

No big deal in the long term... It only improves your chances of Greens rather then whites...

They really need to have some kind of other relic that improves the chances of finding legendaries. A legendary relic that helps your find other legendary items? Sounds legit to me.

The vault hunter's relic simply improves your chance of getting greens and not whites.

Wait, that's all it does? I mean, generally sure, but in the grand scheme of things it can't be credited for a Lvl 4 stumbling across an e-tech weapon in early game (no, I don't want to talk about it. >:|). Why do I even bother hauling it around, then?
