As the title suggests I've saved up about 10k in steel and currently have 12 boxes. I'm nearing rep lvl 2. I'm sure by now that there are those at a rep+5 by now.

When would it be best to start using my resources?

Also, is it worth it to get executions or get to ilvl 108 first?

Any help is always appreciated.

Get rep 3 and then spend the boxes to get heroics.

Would you recommend dumping all my steel on premium boxes as well?

Rep 3 is when you should start on the gear. And if you plan on playing lots of 4v4 then I'd personally go for the gear rather than the executions/cosmetics. It's better to keep up with other players gear wise as to not just get annihilated by those with high gear score.

I didn't bother until Rep 4.

Not all of it because you need some to level up the gear.

This. I personally upgraded each piece as I obtained them.

Off topic - I'm sure I see you ingame (PackingMoney) playing peacekeeper on Xbox One if I'm correct?

How on earth did you get so many boxes? Am I missing something? I earned 2 by playing the story and that's it, where else can I get them from?

Try and break as many breakables as you can. Think I finished with 10 or so.

As Packing stated I found most of them from unbreakables. I also received 3 from playing since alpha and then 3 from Gold edition. I used some at rep lvl 2 just to give me some help.

Now I'll wait till lvl 4.

I would wait untill rank 8, then u will get lvl 18 gear out of the boxes and donīt need to spend extra steel to upgrade them...If you get the gear on rank 3, u need to upgrade every item for 6x270 steel for max level...not worth it, eh?

Rep lvl 8, how much time do you think I have? Be around 3 months from before I get to open the shinies. 😉

It will only take about 40 hours ;-)

What about other characters? Say i have one character at rep 3, does that mean that when i scavenge gear with another no-rep character, will get the heroic gear as well?

No rep is on a per toon basis.

Damn, guys. How did you manage to lvl up so fast? I've got two rep 1 chars and I burn my all free time for this game. You say you have rep 8 char with 45k steel? That's insane! I have never seen a player above rep 3, most of my opponents are rep 0 and 1, rarely 2.

Do you play only 1 char, your main? I find many chars interesting, I can't limit myself to 1 only.

Maybe a small offtop question to some experienced players out there - how does the high lvl gear look like? Is it fancy and flashy or still rather realistic?

Every time i rep up i buy a steel pack and max out my gear score and use it to upgrade my gear. you only need about 5000 steel to get enough good gear.
