Ok, I must be doing something wrong because the only way I've found to repair my items is this.

1. Buy tools. Buy blacksmith tools for metal
2. Buy leatherworking tools for leather
3. ...and a set of weavers tools for the cloth
4. Go to inventory, to select the equipment and see 'wear' and repair mats
5. Buy the mats, each from different shops
6. Go to menu, select equipment, select the main hand slot.
Select the tool
Select equip
Repeat for other hand
7. Choose the item to repair.
Select itself from the list of inventory (unsortable, slow to scroll)
Select unequip
8. Close this screen and open up the inventory.
Search again through the unsorted crap.
Select the item
Hit repair
Now it will tell you the mats that you need, but you have to go and search for them through that lovely unsorted pile of junk, to tell it which mats it needs
9. Choose which hand you want to repair it with (wtf?)
10. Job done......almost!
Now get that menu open
open the equip screen
pick a slot
pick the equipment
choose to farking equip it!!!
11. Repeat for every single piece of equipment you have, roughly once every hour.
Oh, and bring spare undies, or you can never get rid of the durability notification.



Am I doing this wrong? Is there a 'repair all' button somewhere? Because this is seriously a game-breaker for me. I literally cannot take it. Some of the other systems I thought I would learn to cope with, but this is so ridiculous it's not even funny. It wouldn't even be so bad if the menu's weren't all optimesed for pad instead of mouse. They're a pain to work with, even if they weren't tortuously contrived to p*ss you off.

There is a vendor in each city that will repair your gear if it's damaged enough

Yes, but the most they'll do is bring it up to 50% durability. If you want it fully repaired, it has to be done by a crafter (either yourself or someone else). Silly but related factoid: if you're a blacksmith and you like well repaired tools, make sure and buy two hammers because you can't repair the one you have equipped :P

That came out of left field, but is insanely relevant. and it made me laugh.

Oh, I thought they just wouldn't repair it unless it was at at least 50%, yeah that's annoying. with the 30k you get for the first story quest-chain though you may as well just buy a new set of gear at this point :p

It's like the mining fieldcraft leve I did before that gives you a bronze pickaxe. It's like, "... waitwut?"

The #1 thing they need to do for retail is fix the menu system lag.

The #2 thing they need to do is let us sort inventory.

Personally I'd take a ward search function, or an AH over either of those.
