Any benefits from a Borderlands 1 save?

Thinking of reinstalling Borderlands 1 on my comp and wondering if it will have any benefit when Borderlands 2 comes arround.
Im Black Mage. I cast spells that make people fall down.

Doesn't seem like it, especially since they're putting Borderlands 1 on sale right now.

i heard that you get some skins if you had a borderlands 1 save.

edit: in other words, no op benefits, just the ability to look different right off the back.

One of the videos on YouTube had someone from GearBox saying that there would be cosmetic perks to having a game save from the original Borderlands.
Stop complaining. I could have done this more painfully. - Dryad from Sacred 2.

There's some special skins, but that's it. You can also get 10% off on Steam at the moment if you happen to own the original, which is a pretty goo deal if you plan on picking the game up at launch.

I deleted my borderlands save and uninstalled the game a while ago.
Do you need a savegame with completion or just a save game ?
If its just a save game i will just fire up the game and save once.

The announcements on the news sites say just when it detects a save, so installing and saving once seems like it would get the job done.
I believe in Artemis Hound & John Magnum

yeah you get the 10% on steam if and only if you purchased BL1 on steam

if you had a retail box of BL1 you didn't qualify for the 10%, even if it was added as a non steam game
