Why do faction artifacts have so much durability?

    The champion spawn artifacts that came out a couple months ago are a lot more rare yet have less durability (150). I think that faction artifacts should be more disposable so that you aren't set forever when getting one. Perhaps 100 durability would be better. The most expensive items only cost 5,000 silver which is not at all difficult to get. Also if you can use powder of fortification on them it should be disallowed.

    So a faction artifact will last ~3 months with casual play (repair every 2-3 days). Or it will last about a month with heavy usage (repair 1-2 times per day).

    ummm, have you seen those brave factioneers that WORK the spawns? Their gear breaks like every day. Their faction gear still damaged very quickly and replaced. I have a scroll farming char that replaces a faction arti every 2-3 days of playing from perma wear and tear.

    If you want to neglect your armor that is your choice.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
