    That's an interesting question. About a week ago, I used a less-than-GM blacksmith to try to repair some copper ringmail sleeves. Their durability when she started was something like 8/40. Even though she could make new ringmail sleeves out of copper, she couldn't repair the worn ones. Just for grins, I had her keep trying to repair them until the durability was down to 0/0.

    When it hit 0/0, guess what happened?

    Nothing.

    I think she could still be standing there trying to repair those sleeves with their 0/0 durability!

    I finally threw them away because it would have been extremely annoying to wear them and keep getting a message about them being on the verge of breaking. I'm also not sure how much protection they would have provided. It's always seemed to me that a melee character, especially, begins to take more damage as their armor falls into disrepair.

    Also, it seems like broken armor USED to just poof when it got to 0/0 durability. So I'm not sure what happened and why that particular piece refused to crumble into oblivion.

    Still does although im going to assume the reason yours didnt is one of 2 reasons,

    A) it was a glitch and you should have kept them for deco...couldve been worth sommin later :p

    or

    B) it needs to take "damage" to break the item, if when it was 0/0 you had put them on and it had taken any damage i assume it would then poof.

    I'll have to have that lousy smith make some more cheap armor and go try it out. You may be right that taking damage is what makes it disappear. It was very odd, though, that attempting to repair it multiple times with 0/0 durability didn't make it break.
