    Hey folks,

    with the new loot system now we all will have to find out the value of the items we are looting. Think, we will experience some changes... Found this one this morning:

    What do you think? What would you spend for something like that?

    Thanks and best wishes!

    It's hard to price at the moment IMO. Id like to get some antique items and see how quickly the durability drops.

    I'm still a bit disappointed they added durability to jewels.

    I know that antique armor cant be enhanced so I just lost alot of interest in these antique stuff, I know this is a piece of jewelry but I was just letting ya'll know for the antique armor. Besides that well I havent tested the durability lost of antique stuff, so I cant really help you price this piece

    I did a moderate test on Durability and Antique items appear to be maxing out at about 60 Durability per hour loss... I didn't think to look at the rest of my suits starting durability to get a base point but Antique is probably 2x durability loss if I had to guess. I did a combination of some peerless & Covetous fighting & the character was a sampire in VvV with an Antique Cinture. The Crismson Cinture loss ~ 180 Durability in the 3 hrs 15 minutes of time but I was actually only in direct combat for probably 3 hours of that. (parry character too and not so much spell casting on me)... I definately wouldn't consider using a weapon or shield that's Antique ... but possibly Armor / Jewels with another test to confirm....

    Thats a point. However, it is a question if the dura-loss only depends on inflicted damage or on time in combat. If it depends on inflicted damage, pieces for mages or chars using ranged attacks should be fine. They would last forever. If it depends only on the amount of time a char is actively in combat (while not receiving damage), these pieces are utter crap (=ephemeral).

    Any hints?

    Bleh.....I hate that you brought that up simply because I hope they wouldn't make Antiques in such a weird and broken fashion....but you never know till you test...Easy test though... flag a monster sit on your house and wait....

    From the patch notes:

    Antique – Increased durability loss, can be powdered 3 times. Each powder will reduce max durability to 250, 200, and 150 respectively. Can be repaired.

    Nothing too exciting for me, but I got
    antique ring with 1/3 fc/fcr with sdi18, energy 15 and ssi 10. Considering that you excced imbuing limits even without the ssi, its not too shabby. Luck only from a statue (700) in trammel from a lvl 4 t-chest guardian. (Think it was a dread spider.)

    • So, any idea if the dura-loss depends on getting damage or mere fighting?

    So you could wear/repair/wear until its down to like 75/75 then powder - be back up to 200. Then do that again....powder, to 150. Then do it again to get to 100.

    IMHO that means its far better than imbued items and will last a long long long time.

    In another thread I read that dura-loss only depends on damage, not pn time in combat. Hence, for alot of caster templates in PVM these items are extremely useful!

    By the way: Navrey with 3000 luck gives alot of good stuff!
