Post subject:  What are the risks of using the vault with old version items

Hey, folks. I'm coming back to the game after quite some time away. The majority of my winner characters are from older versions (1.5.10, for the most part), and I have a lot of good items I've love to send through the vault to new toons.

There's a pretty dire warning message about doing this, but I thought I'd ask what the risks are. Am I going to have my game blow up for sending old items through the vault? Or is it more of a boiler plate just so people can't complain in the rare chance things go wrong?

Thanks!

I think its just boiler plate.
Most items are completely self contained. As far as code goes, and I think their code is attached to the object in the vault. (Could be wrong about that.)
The only thing I can think of that might go wrong is if its got a bonus to a talent or talent category that doesn't exist anymore. As a missing sanity check might cause the game to get upset.

If you have it on steam there's a way to change the game back to it's 1.5 state so you can play your old characters without them bugging out. I had to do this to finish up some old runs, after making the mistake of trying to play a 1.5 character in 1.6 and the game is completely FUBAR now.
