As you fight your way through the world of Black Desert, your equipment will begin to lose durability, causing it to eventually reach an unusable state.To prevent your equipment from breaking, you can visit a blacksmith or other NPC with the repair functionality, found in most towns, or you can repair it yourself in a residence of your own with a personal anvil.
➤ For information on the different types of equipment, please visit the [Equipment] page.
Blacksmiths, armor vendors, stable keepers, wharf managers, and in some cases arms dealers, offer the repair service.
After accessing the Repair menu, press the Repair button. This will open a confirmation window detailing the location of all the pieces of equipment that can be currently repaired, and the silver it will cost to repair it all.
Those items in your inventory that can be repaired will be highlighted. You can right click each to repair them individually. The same applies for items currently equipped. You can right click each of them to repair them individually. This is for cases in which you don’t have much silver and want to specify which item you want to repair.
When enhancing items with black stones, upon failure the maximum durability of the item is decreased. This means that over time the gear you are trying to improve will become less and less overall durable unless you sacrifice similar items to restore it. The less maximum durability an item has, the faster it will become unusable when its durability is decreased from using it.
For example, to repair the maximum durability of an Agerian helmet, you must use another Agerian helmet for the repair. If you want to repair a variant of an equipment piece, such as an Agerian helmet of agility, you can either use a base Agerian helmet along with a specific amount of silver, or one Agerian helmet of the same or different variant. The item you choose to sacrifice for the repairs will be destroyed.
Shown above, different states of the durability of items.
- In the first picture, an item has 140 maximum durability, and possesses 140 durability.
- In the second picture, an item has 100 maximum durability, but the item’s durability has decreased from using it, and currently has 95 durability. A simple repair at an NPC will fix this.
- In the last picture, the maximum durability of an item is noted as being 180, but has decreased to 170 due to a failed enhancement attempt. A simple repair won’t fix it. Instead, you need to restore its maximum durability, and then repair it.
For expensive pieces of equipment, like those in which cases purchasing a new base item for the repair is too costly or difficult, it is recommended to use memory fragments instead. They serve the same purpose as identical equipment pieces for repair. Depending on the grade of the equipment piece you want to restore the maximum durability of, memory fragments may be less effective, requiring more of them.
You also have a small chance to restore one maximum lost durability each time an NPC repairs your items.
