Changing Gear Causes Damage?Follow

I was in Gridania, the city proper so no mobs to speak of, a level 12 Lancer going through my inventory every so painfully selecting things to sell and things to keep and craft. Without a doubt, I am 100% sure that I had no damaged gear on me (at least not to the point of giving me the yellow icon).

So I get done selling stuff and I decide, let's turn some of this Flax into whatever the **** Flax turns into. So I switch to Alchemist, open my crafting window only to realize I only have 3 Flax. I need 4 to make anything. Oh well.

Stand up, switch back to Lancer and BAM. Damaged gear yellow icon appears. WHAT?! Just thinking about crafting damaged my gear.

Is this a bug? Can doing NOTHING really damage my gear?

Fairly certain this is a bug of some sort with the items that are checked for gear damage. The icon is probably indicating a damaged item somewhere in your inventory that you do not currently have equipped. The same thing happened to me earlier; I wasn't wearing any damaged gear but the icon was present. Repairing gear in my inventory removed the icon.

I had a bug where I had damaged gear even when I wasn't wearing anything. It eventually fixed itself when I attempted a craft, as when the item completed the gear damage went away. Odd I know. But this was the only way as I had restarted several times.

I get this all the time. Damage icon while wearing crafting gear, switch to ARC, back to the same crafting gear - no icon. I've also had the damage icon with no gear on at all except for the weapon which was no where near the damage level. Very buggy.
