All my gear are at durability 1/xxxxxx and i am still using them. Is Gear Damage penalty significant enough to really matter?
I tried repairing at the npc but they were way over priced and the npc could only repair up to 75% durability max, and I figured it wasn`t worth the price cause the weapon durability drops to 1% in just a few hrs of hunting. Armor can last a bit longer but weapons decay really fast.
Tried putting up my gear for repair on my retainer before i logged off but when i logged back in the next 2 day no one repaired it. And then the retainer could only have 10 bazaar items so i am torn between putting up items for sale or for repairs.
And so I decided to try leveling up crafting to do repairs myself. From 1-10 it is pretty fast, just need to make use of the crafting levels but after that it becomes exponentially harder to increase each lvl. So I stopped lvling at around lvl10 crafting, but at least i am able to repair my tier 1 weapons now, even though it is not so simple still, as i need to spend like a few hours to look through retainers since there is no AH, to get the ingredients required to do the repairs. And then to my dismay once i upgrade to a tier 2 weapon my lvl 10 craft is not high enough to do the repairs and also i need to spend hours again to search thru retainers for the ingredient required to repair the new gear.
And so I thought to myself WTF do i have to spend 95% of my playtime searching for items and doing crafting, instead of going out to adventure and kill stuff which is what i enjoy most. Now i dun even care about repairing anymore since its requires too much work, unfortunately everytime i upgrade a piece a gear, i still have to repair the old piece to 100% before i can resell it, really a pain.
And so i go out to party and kill , ingoring my 1/xxxxxx gear, lvl20 DoW, and there are no party's out there! No quest either other than the 36h repeatable ones, only thing i can do is look for the lower lvl blue mobs and grind non stop, it seems like at lvl 20 the mobs either con low blue if not RED! I am thinking whether to continue my subscription......
Anyone in the same boat?
