If you’re a role playing gamer like me, you’ve become used to certain things in your favorite games.

One of those things is repairing your armor and weapons, which tend to degrade over time.

Well, much to the joy and also the chagrin of Elder Scrolls fans, Bethesda has confirmed that you will not have to do so in Skyrim.

A fan asked BethSoft Marketing VP Pete Hines this:

See, in Skyrim you can now craft and improve your armor and weapons, but you will not have to repair them.

Is this a welcome change, or does it break from some of the game’s realism?
