Does anyone know what exactly is the penalty you get when your gear is damaged or heavily damaged? Is it a set penalty for the 2 categories? Or does it scale depending on the exact durability of your equipment?

I doubt it scales with the exact durability, but it probably does scale between Damaged (yellow) and Heavily Damaged (red). I don't know quite how it affects stats. Last time one of my rings hit yellow it gave the exact same stats it did when it was 100%, but since the icon was annoying I went ahead and repaired it instead of letting it hit red to see what happens.

Gear with higher stats might start losing their effectiveness at yellow damage, but I haven't been assed enough to test it yet.

I am more curious about if Gear damage applies as a general debuff, as opposed to only affects the specific piece of gear in question.

E.g. Having Yellow Gear Damage = 10% dmg peanlty to the character, as opposed to the "Dodo Skin Shoes" that is damaged lose 10% of its stats.

Nobody knows, since SE, once again, loves to hide the stats.
You can't even tell whether Protect is worth its casttime and Mana,
since there is no (visible) difference in your stat menue with or without.

I have to admit, gear damage is an all around mystery to me. I've had the red icon floating at the top of my screen for so long I don't even pay attention to it. And I've been repairing most all of my gear on a pretty consistant basis.

Last night I purchase new armor and a weapon for my main, equipped it all, and still have the icon showing red. It makes no sense to me and I've no idea how to get rid of it. I can personally repair about all of the armor I have and carry materials to do so when needed but since it never leaves red I now just check on occasion and wait for it to drop into the 40%-50% range and then repair the item. This saves $$ in terms of materials used and to be honest I haven't paid close enough attention to notice if there's a marked drop in any given performance category.

Has anyone else had a similar problem or do you have any advise for me so I can banish that icon forever? ;D

Bizzle:
Did you check your accessories? Repair NPC does not repair those...

And to my knowledge the debuff only is applied to the items which are damaged...

The exact amount is unknown to me.
