When a player dies, the durability of all equipped items is reduced. When an item reaches 0% durability, it is destroyed.
- If Hardcore Mode is turned ON, all equipped items lose 4% Durability
- If Hardcore Mode is turned OFF, all equipped items lose 2% Durability.
An Item can have its durability restored with Item Repair.

Damaged items have significant price discounts for their Engineering Costs.

If item durability theft occurs: \
