    question bout ethereals

    hi all. im playing on battlenet not for long and have question bout eth items.

    i know some ppl make glitched eth armors with high def for runewords. but doesnt this armors get broken finaly? or this is used for merc equipment only?

    some1 told me that if ethereal item drops with full durability (like 26 of 26 for example) it doesnt break. is this right or not?

    would apreciate any explanations, thnx

    It is mainly used for mercs since they don't use any durability, but I have heard of rich people using eth items just for the style of it.

    Even if it does spawn with 26 of 26 durability it will get broken if a player uses it. Only mercs afaik can use eth items without it breaking sometime ;)

    And if I'm not mistaken, all ethereal items spawn with max durability.

    Also, depending what runeword you're putting in, (like in the case of Prudence - although God only knows why you'd ever use that particular one) the item could have "repairs durability over time". Or any recipe involving a Zod, the item will simply become indestructible anyway.

    The max durability of ethereal items is 1/2 the max of regular items. I don't believe they are always at max, but I am unsure.

    Re: question bout ethereals

    Yes all ethereal items have lower max durability than an equivalent non-ethereal item. What I meant was that all ethereal items that drop, automatically get full durability(ie. 26 out of 26), so you can't get a eth item with say, 2 out of 26 durability.

    At least I think that's how it works.
