Successful Repair: +0.4
The Armorer skill is used to maintain weapons and armor at top effectiveness. Damaged weapons do less damage. Damaged armor provides less protection against attacks. As wear increases, the diminishing effectiveness of weapons and armor becomes dramatic.
This represents your skill at repairing damaged armor and weapons. To repair an item, you will need to use an armorer's hammer. These come in varying levels of quality, and have a limited number of uses. This skill can be invaluable if your gear is severely damaged while you are not near enough to a Blacksmith to pay for repairs. Unless your skill level is very low, buying and using armorer's hammers is cheaper than paying for NPC repairs, moreso at higher levels, where your chance of success and magnitude of each repair is greater.
All Fighters Guild equipment chests have restocking supplies of armorer's hammers.
