Yesterday I noticed that I had a repair hammer that was level 1-10. I was level 19 so figured it was useless but tried to repair using it just to be sure and it worked. I have assumed that the item level meant usage, but it does not appear so at least for that item. Does anyone know (can source) what it means?
My current guess is now "what levels you can find it" however that's kind of weird, since I could always return to the low level areas and find those items if that's the case. Maybe something lost in translation?
On the opposite side of the coin, I have a few items from the daily dash that are higher level and those have a lock symbol which I assumed meant I couldn't use them because of my level, now I wonder about that too.
