Very true, and thanks for the fast reply.
Yea...weapons really shouldn't break that easily. Just like things shouldn't break as easily while crafting, but yea. The only logic behind it I could see right now is...for now we're lowbie crafters, hence our weapons / armor are not very good, and break easily. If it gets better later on, with better gear, it would be understandable. Though...not sure if I want to bet on that.
