When armor has taken (20 + 10x hits stopped) hits, it will begin to fall apart. It will stop 1 fewer hits at this point. When it has taken (20 + 20x hits stopped) hits, it is in very bad shape and will stop 2 fewer hits. Extremely powerful or otherwise special blows may count as multiple hits. Cloth and leather armor are not repairable, but metal armor may be repaired for 20% of its new price (10% for fine armor). The Repair spell does not help in fixing armor (nor shields).
When shields have taken (15x hits stopped) hits, they are split asunder and useless. Small shields may be made of metal and will then take (20x hits stopped) before they split. Such a metal shield would cost $45 and weigh 7 kg. Metal shields may be repaired as for armor, but normal shields may not.
