hmm,.....sorry....I was going through this posting but still don't get it.
When I combine this item to an existing one and use some abilities that are listed on that item, that specific item part is discarded without lowering the total value of the whole combined item.......
but how is it when i'm not combining that item but keep it as a single item?.....is that item ever discarded? On the action symbols it is stated that it is discarded but on the text below the durabilty is not lowered.....
It's discarded, not by lowering durability but by the text on the action
