Damage and number of blocks
It seems that damage does dictate the number of blocks (or strips) you can tear something up into.
The red-brown smock (1) is in very good condition. The yellow smock (2) is in decent condition. >tear smock test The yellow smock would divide up into 3 strips and 1 quilting blocks. >tear smock 2 test The red-brown smock would divide up into 4 strips and 1 quilting blocks. >sew smock You pull a grey cotton thread from the thread spool. You thread the small silver needle with a grey cotton thread. You neatly stitch the yellow smock up with the small silver needle. The yellow smock looks as good as new. >sew red-brown smock You pull a grey cotton thread from the thread spool. You thread the small silver needle with a grey cotton thread. You stitch the red-brown smock up with the small silver needle. The red-brown smock looks as good as new. >tear smock test The red-brown smock would divide up into 5 strips and 2 quilting blocks. >tear smock 2 test The yellow smock would divide up into 5 strips and 2 quilting blocks. >tb smock You tear the red-brown smock into two quilting blocks. >tb smock You tear the yellow smock into two quilting blocks.
(I'm assuming that "tear x test" is accurate for things you can actually tear up, as far as this goes, even though it sometimes indicates that you can tear something up when you actually can't.)
Anyone else think it would be a good idea to just list the maximum blocks you can get from an item?

I concur --Groth
- Um... hm. Okay, I guess that may not be the entire picture. Twice, now, I've encountered an item that didn't yield the expected number of blocks, despite being in apparently perfect condition. I started with three moon dragon shirts...
men shirt You pull a yellow cotton thread from the thread spool. You thread the small silver needle with a yellow cotton thread. One of the moon dragon shirts doesn't need to be mended. mdc shirt 2 You neatly stitch one of the moon dragon shirts up with the small silver needle. One of the moon dragon shirts looks as good as new. men shirt 3 You pull a yellow cotton thread from the thread spool. You thread the small silver needle with a yellow cotton thread. You neatly stitch one of the moon dragon shirts up with the small silver needle. One of the moon dragon shirts looks as good as new. tb shirt You tear one of the moon dragon shirts into three quilting blocks. You drop three golden orange cotton quilting blocks. tb shirt You tear the rich red moon dragon shirt into four quilting blocks. You drop four rich red cotton quilting blocks. tb shirt You tear the grass yellow moon dragon shirt into four quilting blocks. You drop four grass yellow cotton quilting blocks.
- So, as far as I can tell, the golden orange one wasn't the least bit damaged (either it was one I mended up to look as good as new, or it didn't need to be mended), and yet it only gave three blocks. Either there's some randomness and/or a skillcheck to determine how many blocks you can get from a particular item with a particular condition, or damage and mending doesn't work the way it seems to, and something can be very slightly damaged without being mendable.

- Condition doesn't show objects that are very slightly damaged, you can try to mend an item and succeed even if it didn't look damaged. For fix and leatherwork you can fix/leatherwork cost each item to find some that can be fix a tiny bit. For mend you need to try to mend I guess. --Frazyl 06:22, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
- Oh, sure--but there are also times where an item (like the moon dragon shirt) can't be mended with needle and thread (it says it doesn't need to be mended if I try) but still only yields three blocks. Not sure if using Gapp's altar/the mend ritual would have the same results. So now I'm wondering if there is a small gap between "absolutely perfect condition" and "good enough condition you can't mend it", where something can be very very slightly damaged but not mendable. Or if something else is going on here. --Ilde 03:15, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
- Such is true for smithable items. For instance, one can have a ring or such that says excellent condition (and does not show up as damaged), but can still be fixed in a smithy for a pence or so. --Groth (too lazy to log on)
- Yes, I know that "excellent condition" is a range and that things in that range can still be a little bit damaged, etc etc etc. I'm not talking about whether it says it's in excellent condition or not.
- This is what I'm talking about:
mend jacket with needle The elegant blue-grey suit jacket doesn't need to be mended.
- The bit where it says it "doesn't need to be mended". It actually stops me from mending it with needle and thread--it's in good enough condition that it's impossible to use the mend verb on it ().
- Again, I'm not talking about whether it says "excellent condition"; I know things can be mendable/fixable/etc before they get all the way down to "very good".
- What I'm wondering is if there's perhaps a minimum amount something has to be damaged before the mend verb can be used on it. If, for example, condition might have to be down to 98% before you can mend it, and you can't mend it at 99% (but 99% is still very slightly damaged).
