Item Durability is a Secondary Attribute that represents the state of your equipment. Each item that can be damaged shows its durability in the lower left corner of the item description. When an item is damaged in combat, it loses durability points.
- Any Weapon can lose durability when you attack or use Skills. Also, if you don't have a shield equipped, blocked attacks will damage your main hand weapon.
- Sorceries do not reduce durability of your equipped Weapons.
- Any Shield can lose durability when you take damage as well as when you Block incoming attacks and spells.
- Any Armor can lose durability when you take damage as well as when you get hit but completely nullify the damage with Protection.
- Any metal equipment can lose durability for every 10 turns spent while having the Wetness debuff.
- Boots can also lose durability when you walk a high amount of tiles. From all your equipment, your Boots will be degrading the fastest.
- The minimum durability is 1. It can never reach 0, and it won't be lost by taking further damage.
Items purchased in town are always sold at 100% durability. Looted items are always partially damaged, with items from living enemies and treasure chests usually at higher durability, and items from undead enemies usually nearly destroyed. Items with lower durability will sell for less money when traded in towns. When an item's durability lowers below a certain point, the item degrades and the bonuses it normally provides are reduced until the item is repaired. Items with low durability also have different sprites, allowing you to spot a degraded item at a glance:
