Just completed a leathercraft synth and received the message "Your newly equipped gear is no longer uncomfortable...". Any ideas as to what effect that has?

Came at the same time I was told "You gear is heavily damaged..[sic]" which I guess is referring to my Well-worn Undersleeves at 99/5520

I got that exact same set of messages earlier while I was synthing. Haven't been able to figure out what it means.

Hope the translation is enough.. it means your equipment is ok now, it hurt your character to use it wile it was damaged but not anymore.

I haven't repaired anything yet though. I don't see how being even more broken would make it more comfortable to wear.

I got this when switching classes to something I hadn't leveled yet. Meanwhile as marauder I always get spammed with "your axe now feels like an extension of your body"

For Marauder that's a class ability called "Steadfast". It raises your parry rate a little bit when you sit still in one spot for a few seconds (it gives you a little buff icon too). Unfortunately it seems a little buggy right now because if anything moves you even a tiny bit (like another player or mob running into you and shifting your model) the buff resets.

Steadfast in addition to raising your parry rate also gives other attacks extra benefits like changing Skull Sunder from a single-target attack to a frontal cone attack. I've seen "steadfast" mentioned in tooltips ever since early CB, but I always thought it was a triggered ability that Marauder learned later until one day I used Skull Sunder and ended up striking three mobs with it. Those mobs beat a powerful lesson into my delicate body that day that I'll never forget.

SE needs to label icons in addition to telling you what they do.
