Crafting And Item Repair In Project Eternity
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Obsidian Entertainment has released another new early development blog post focusing on the creation of its upcoming Project Eternity RPG. The latest post offers details about the game's crafting system and how it interacts with item durability and repair costs.
Most items don’t degrade over time. This means that boots, rings, helmets, gloves, amulets, cloaks, and belts are not worn down by use. However, weapons, shields, and armor (that is, chest armor) do have durability values and are worn down by use. Specifically, every attack with a weapon degrades that weapon by one unit, and armor and shields are similarly degraded when the wearer is attacked.Read more at the link below.
Project Eternity Crafting Update
Items have lots of units of durability, and they do not suffer any negative effects until those units are completely gone. When an item has reached 25% of its maximum durability, it will become “worn” and appear that way in your inventory, but it will not behave any differently until the last unit of durability is lost. At that point, the item is “damaged” and the following effects will happen:
Items can never become worse than “damaged”. They will not break or become more damaged. They just stay damaged until you have them fixed.
- Weapons – damaged weapons do less damage and have less accuracy
- Armor – damaged armor has lower damage thresholds and the wearer’s attack speed is slower
- Shields – damaged shields lose part of their defense bonuses
Vendors can repair items for money, so that’s a fast and easy way to keep all of your items in top notch condition. The cost of the repair is proportional to the percentage of the durability lost and the cost of the item, so expensive items tend to be more costly to repair than cheaper ones, especially if you let them lose a lot of their durability before repairing them.
