I started playing Elder Scrolls Arena again with a new character, this time a Knight due to their ability allowing them to auto repair their equipment and also being immune to paralysis.

Could anyone explain to me how the repairing ability works? I have some magical items (belts, torcs, crystals) but I don't see them getting repaired. Thanks in advance.

  • I have little experience with Arena, therefore not an answer. But in Daggerfall, magic items cannot be repaired at all unless you change a specific ini-setting. It is possible the same thing applies to Arena.

The repairing ability for the Knight is for equipment that is, armor and weapons - not magically enchanted gear.

They also have the ability to repair damaged weapons or armor. This ability is done automatically to any weapons or armor in their inventory.

Special: Immune to Paralysis; Automatically repair damaged weapons or armor; 25% Lockpick Effectiveness

The magical items need to be recharged, not repaired. A way to do this is at the Blacksmith.

Blacksmiths can also repair weapons, armor, and charged magic items (marks, crystals, bracers, rings, and artifacts).

    Thanks, this is a very good answer. Now I understand why my weapons and armor are always in good condition, but not my magical items.

I'm pretty sure that charges from enchanted armor and weapons get recharged whenever the kinght's repair ability kicks in. As mentioned before, this does not happen with non-armor/weapon equipment such as amulets, torcs, etc.
