    Are weapons and armor damaged by anything other than death?

    Okay, so each item has durability. Other than by death, what makes an item lose durability? I'm assuming attacking makes the weapon lose durability, but other than that:

    • If I never get damage, does my armor lose durability?
    • What affects the rate of durability loss? Why is my helmet currently at lower durability than my torso armor?
    • What makes rings and amulets lose durability?
    • If I use a lot of shift-clicking to attack at range, do I lose durability if I miss?

    But I guess this all boils down to when does an item lose durability, and at what rate does that happen?

Is it as simple as including the item in a loadout and playing a match or do I have to use the item in some way? At what rate is this xp accumulated? Can I do anything to influence that?

  • Possible Duplicate: How does +% damage on weapons work? Now that I'm nearing level 60, I'm seeing many weapons that have +% damage on them. Is this number already factored into the listed DPS of the weapon? Does this number affect anything beyond the base damage of the weapon it is on? If so, how? Does it affect my off-hand weapon if I'm dual wielding? Is it applied before my primary stat's multipliers? Basically, I'm curious if I can safely ignore this property on an item when doing comparison shopping in the AH because it's already factored into the listed damage range

  • While reparing your items was just a nuisance before patch 1.0.3, at least as long as you didn't die excessively, it is a very significant gold drain now. I'm trying to understand which factors affect the cost of repair and the amount of damage I have to repair. How exactly is the repair cost calculated. I understand it is connected to the ilevel of my equipment, but how does it work exactly. When are my items damaged and how much? The 10% on death are obvious, but for the non-death-related damage: Is it based on how often I'm hit or on how much damage I take? Do abilities that absorb

I want to get an armor with 100+ base armor that I can equip with my emeralds, so I can push it to 150 or more. Is it possible to exclude gem effects from the results for my query? Because both alternatives are not really good: I can search for the end result (e.g. 150 dex), but I will also get really expensive Armor that has

  • Possible Duplicate: What does durability do? I noticed that I have to repair my weapons every so often (as I am now above level 10), and I was wondering how the durability percentage affects the weapon, if at all. Is it something like: 100%- no effect 80%- 10% damage reduction 60%- 20% damage reduction etc. Or does the weapon just break when the durability reaches zero with no effect on the weapon before it reaches this point?

  • Possible Duplicate: How does Magic Find work in Guild Wars 2? Currently my armor, weapon, and accessory is set up to maximize magic find. my gear is as follows: +18% magic find from having 6 explorer armor pieces. +60% magic find from having 5 pieces of Superior Rune of the Pirate and 1 piece of Superior Rune of the Explorer. 12% from two single handed explorer weapons that both...? If that is the case then I rather not waste using the consumable since it will add negligible difference. If it is additive, what happens when you have over 100% magic find?
