For all items, durability affects the price of the item. The lower the durability %, the lower the price.
For Food, the durability bar indicates the "freshness" of the food. Food which reaches 0 Durability will rot and be destroyed. On this Wiki, the "Perish Time" is listed instead of the actual Durability value, as different food can decay at different rates. The "Perish Time" is in actual in-game time.
For Lanterns, the durability indicates how much fuel is remaining.
- Armor loses durability when you are hit by enemies
- Weapons lose durability whenever you deal damage with them, or when you use certain Skills
- Lanterns and Torches lose durability over time if they are lit
- Food items will perish over time, though you can slow this down using certain Backpacks
