Morning.

Let me explain what is actually happening.

Every time you get defeated (so after you have been downed and failed to rally) one piece of your armor gets damaged. Once all your armor pieces are damaged, they will break - and you will have to repair or replace it.

It is very different from a durability system other games use, as you cannot avoid being hit by opponents - but you can avoid getting defeated by skilled play.

So if you never get defeated, you will never have to repair a single piece of armor.

Hope that helps, we have a blogpost about it coming soon that will get into more details.


Actually this kind of durability I can handle. Much better than most other MMO durability and a good replacement for energy and energy potions.

Much better than the traditional gold sink. I wonder if they'll have options for battlefield repairs.
