It has been awhile since my original Durability post, in which I talked about Hytale's durability system, and how it might work. In case you haven't read it, I eventually concluded that no, based on the gameplay, screenshots, and trailer, Hytale would not have any durability for items and armor whatsoever. However, just today a was going through some screenshots when I realized that Hytale had released some more information concerning the Fire Sword; and when I looked at it, I came upon a discovery that easily proved my original theory wrong. The fire sword had been marked with 70 durability points.
This meant that there was indeed durability. So there may be durability, but that doesn't give us a complete answer to everything. Does 70 durability mean it only lasts 70 hits?
After giving the matter some thought, I came up with another theory, this one more educated. Maybe, there are different ways to hit an enemy with a longsword (A longsword being a type of sword that requires two hands), such as a jab, a swipe, or a parry, the better attack takes more durability.
Perhaps more durability is taken when you decide to fight a higher-level monster with the sword.
When I find more information, I will update. Please also consider upvoting or liking!
