For the very first time I am playing a game of the Diablo series and I started as a wizard.

  • In the beginning I had equipped a normal wand and I found some swords and bows however I do not understand whether and why (or why not) my default magic attacks have increased damage or not based on the equipped weapon.
  • Another noticeable point is that for example my equipped shield always has the same durability value which isn't decreasing. I expected my items to decrease this value while using them or am I misunderstanding something?

Could you please give me some short explanation on these topics?

The first question is a duplicate of this question. You might want to edit to focus on the durability question. And in general, try to ask one question per question. :) – Steven May 17 '12 at 20:39
Thanks for the hint, but I got my answer so fast, hope nobody will punish me :P – Christian Ivicevic May 17 '12 at 20:45

Durability does not decrease if you're below level 10, which is why you see a constant durability value. As soon as you reach level 10, durability starts getting degraded with use (it is also lowered if you die).

Regarding damage, see this related question (and its answers).
