Add a Repair Bench

I would like to see a new crafting bench added in the form of a repair bench. Placing items in it should let them be repaired at reduced costs, and it should let you repair even things that would not normally be repairable.

If the item is something you normally couldn’t repair (you don’t have the knowledge or it is a special armor drop), you should still be able to repair it but only to 50% to 75% durability. This would be balanced since you wouldn’t be able to repair them to full, and you would not be able to easily repair them in the field.

It would also make it more fun and worth while to raid higher leveled NPC camps as a lower leveled character since the anything you found, such as weapons, would not be useless just a short while later.

I didn’t hear about that. And Repair kits let you repair stuff, but they are fairly expensive on their own.

The idea for the repair bench is that it would make things very cheap to repair, but would require you to return to a central location to do it. So imagine you could repair something like a legendary weapon or armor or a star metal weapon with just a few iron bars but only if you went back to base.

Is 3 hardened steel cheap to repair something like an iron weapon? What about if you don’t have a thrall at all?

there is lower repair kit aswell, so you can use up to 10 steel bar, or even iron if you feel the need of economy.

Aswell as if you repair said your steel pickaxe with iron repair kit, it would be up to 30% (more or less, i have to admit my lack of use for repair kit, exept the sweet one of the city wisouth name for me legendary weapon).

Repair the pickaxe alow more iron harvesting, and therefor to repair it further

I thought it was obvious that the suggestion was geared towards low level, new, or recently wiped characters.

Because it adds another way to enjoy the game.

Build a tiny shack and place a repair bench in it. Sneak into a high level camp at low level. Loot their chests, run for your life when they notice, and be using high level gear like 30 minutes into the game without any tedious grinding or leveling exploits.

I’m not trying to outsmart the game. I’m trying to enjoy it. :grin:

It’s impossible to gather 17k iron nodes in a single gathering trip without using a mod allowing stacks of 1000 for items stacking at 100 or 200. Because 17 000 = 170 stacks of 100 iron nodes. Even with a T4 bearer or a caravan rhino / elephant, you don’t have enough slots in your and your thrall / pet inventories for 170 stacks of anything.
It’s impossible to gather so much brimstones and iron nodes and hides in a single hour without pushing to *10 the slider for gathering.
Your claims are impossible to reproduce without any mods and default settings. Like it’s the norm on official servers. So I don’t understand the purpose of your post because most players aren’t concerned by it.
