While in combat, you may notice that your equipment is taking damage. For example, you may see "Your lifebane gets damaged." Each time this happens, the AC of the item is damaged by one. If the AC on an item is 5, after it is damaged more than five times it will be destroyed or scraped. If you wish to preserve the equipment, you must repair it by taking it to the town blacksmith. (NOTE: Not all equipment is repairable) You may also notice that while fighting a creature which attacks you with acid breath or another acid attack, your equipment gets "etched and pitted." When this occurs the AC on that item is damaged by one permanently. You cannot repair the damage done by "pitting and etching."
