    Does it still hold true that if you repair items before they take more than 10% damage, that you can repair them without losing a durability point??

    Thanks,

    I don't think so... I tried at least 100 times and I always lost 1 point :(
     
  3. This from an old Five on Friday (which I miss):
    "I'm a Legendary Smith - why do I lose durability points so often when I try to repair things?"
    "Because there's a pretty high base chance to lose a point of durability" seems to be the simple answer. The formula is as follows:

    Chance to lose Durability = ((40 + Max Durability) - Current Durability) - (repairSkill / 100) (where repair skill is Test Center-style, i.e. GM = 1000, not 100.0)

    Example: Blacksmithing of 1100 (110.0), 50 current and max durability, yields a 29% chance that max durability will be reduced by 1. If an item has taken more than 71 points of damage, the chance for it to lose a point of durability reaches 100% even for a Legendary smith. So there's a definite choice to be made - do you repair early and often, and risk failure, or late and seldom, and guarantee it?

    Thank you for the info.

    I was hoping I could keep repairing my replicas about every, ohhh, 5 minutes to ensure that I didn't lose durability on them. I know they will still last quite a while without worrying about it, but I'm a bit of a penny pincher.

    Thanks again,

    Ax
     
  5. Personally, any item that I have that can't use the POF's, I wait until the durability gets below 10 before repairing and just assume that you are going to lose a point of durability anyway. If you wait until it only has 1 or even zero durability, you have a very high chance of failing and losing another point.

    That's what I usually do too, but just had a soul seeker go *poof*, maybe I won't wait so long next time
