    I'm having a problem with my self repair armor on my archer.

    it doesn't seem to be repairing..

    is this because i'm not getting hit? i read somewhere that when i get hit the item is supposed to absorb the energy and repair itself, that's how it works?

    anyone have any tips, besides from just repairing it?

    My understanding is that armor self repairs only when it's hit. So if you're not getting hit much then it might not self repair much. Try letting some weak monsters hit you for a little while while holding a non-skill weapon and see if it self repairs.

    You have to be hit to have your armor auto repair.
    Self Repair 2 should be fine for an archer so long as you don't get hit much.

    Self Repair 1 can do more damage than good. Honestly I'd love SR 1 to be the default on all armor. If you reach 0/100 durability with SR1 and take too much damage you'll see your max durability drop. e.g. parry training with 10 lizard men hitting you while in 0/100 Dur SR 1 will get you to 0/80 Dur pretty quick. I haven't seen this effect SR 3+

    I'd recommend repairing your armor if your at less than 5 durability. SR just saves you time in repairs if you ask me, and of course is great for parry training. SR is more of a perk than a requirement in armor I find.
