The condition command tells you how much an item is damaged. It can be used on multiple items at once, or even on "all".

Using the command

There are several available syntaxes:

condition <item(s)> damaged sorting {up|down} 
condition <item(s)> sorting {up|down} 
condition <item(s)> damaged 
condition <item(s)>

The "damaged" argument will cause it to ignore items in excellent condition. (Note that you can use "damaged" as an adjective for other commands; i.e., "fix damaged weapon" or "locate damaged things".)

Adding "sorting up" will cause it to list the items from most damaged to least damaged, while adding "sorting down" will cause it to list them from least damaged to most damaged.

Condition stages

  1. Complete wreck
  2. Atrocious
  3. Very poor
  4. Really poor
  5. Poor
  6. Fairly poor
  7. Fairly good
  8. Decent
  9. Good
  10. Very good
  11. Excellent

A few items have no condition.

Changing condition

Weapons get damaged when you fight with them. Clothing and armour gets damaged when you're hit on the part of the body it covers. Failing a step during finesmithing will also damage the item you're working on. If something is damaged too much, it will break (disappear completely) and be permanently lost.

You can improve an item's condition with the following means:

Method Objects that can be repaired
Fix in a smithy Metal items and weapons
Repair in a woodworking shop Wooden things
Leatherwork in a tannery Leather things
Sew with a sewing needle and sinew thread Leather things
Sew with a sewing needle and cloth thread Cloth things
Placing on Gapp's low altar Cloth things
Mend (Ritual) Cloth things
Service npcs Clothing, maybe others

You can directly locate most of these types of items in your inventory except for metal where you need to locate steel, locate iron, etc.

While fix was once changed to only work on metal items it was changed to work on weapons as well because it was deemed too significant a

You can improve clothing's condition by putting it on the low altar of Gapp in Ankh-Morpork--this takes faith gp, and the more gp is spent, the more the item will be repaired.research (Leather items usually can't be improved this way, and will just fall off the altar with no result.)
