I have been repairing my imbued armor, weps, and jewelery after each trip out into the action. In order to prolong the life of the items, I try not to let each item get more than 10 points worn before repairing it. I realized that even though not worn out much, I am still losing a point of durability about 25% of the time. My question is: Would it be better to let the equipment wear out almost completely before repairing it? I would lose a point of durability every time I repair, but if considering the lifetime of the item, would I get more total use out of the item by the short or long repair cycle? It's possible that the 25% figure is not accurate since it is so far just my estimate of the failure rate on a slightly used item.
