    Have not read up on all the new tags but is antique one that decays rather fast from damage?

    Yeah it will decay faster.... but unless your pvping 24/7 your going to get a good long use out of it specially on a chiv tamer. Your pet protects :) jewelery takes the least amount of damage over everything as well...

    Doesn't it passively wear down at an alarming rate when in battle mode - even if not directly hitting anyone? (IE: using a pet)

    Even if it did. You don't need to be in war mode to attack a target.

    Set them on last target and use an attack last macro.

    Tested this theory just to clear it up for you and anyone that was curious.

    I just put 2 antique jewels on left myself in "War mode" for an hour there was no decay on durability.

    I then tested it this with actually attacking something, sat there in battle mode with the pet not doing damage. No durability loss while in combat mode with an enemy

    I think tested beating on the pet, hitting and getting hit the durability seems to begin to go down

    I then tested just me casting on the pet doing damage to it but not hitting them with melee nor getting hit. No Durability loss.

    I have a tamer/mage friend that has antique pieces (2 armor, 1 ring). She has to repair them twice a day usually. Doing a champ spawn is usually enough to halve the dur on the ring. I have a sampire with antique jewelry, and after a champion spawn my jewelry is usually below 100 dur.

    YMMV, but be careful basing suits around antique pieces, even as a tamer/caster.

    Hmm.... That's not the same result I got when testing. I simply spammed weaken on my warhorse and I lost 4 durability on my antique ring in less than 1 minute.... I've since learned that it's probably a timer just like the old ephemeral property so the 1 minute is misleading (might be 5-6) or some such... but Casting and not dealing / taking damage definitely took away durability... Thread I'd noted this in even before this post..... POST #1

    http://community.stratics.com/threads/would-a-dev-pls-explain-exactly-how-antique-works.324362/

    The ring is BEAST for the right template.. and I'd personally use it in PvP but I still want to nail down exactly how Antique functions etc...

    Yeah, you might get tearful ICQs detailing individual ingame worth and whatnot for daring to contest such a persons. You've been warned!
