Maintenance is not only something which is necessary to perform on your equipment, it is also a skill which will increase in level as you do so. Initially you will have a limited capacity to repair your own armour. As a result you will have to pay specialist vendors such as Blacksmiths, Weaponsmiths, Tailors, Armourers and Cobblers to do it for you. From each of these you can also purchase the corresponding repair kits, ranging from small kits which can be used on inexpensive equipment to regular kits which can be used on almost all equipment once you have reached Maintenance skill level 20. The more you repair your own kit the more you will level the skill, but you will also gain additional benefits related to specific perks, as shown below.
Repairing your own equipment provides significant bonuses such as improved endurance. (left), Sharpening your own weapons will improve their effectiveness in combat, such as weakening an opponents armour, making them vulnerable. (right)
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is an open-world RPG set in the last throes of the Middle Ages. The year is 1403 and the Kingdom of Bohemia is about to be plunged into turmoil. Henry, a resdient of the castle town Skalitz, is the son of a renowned blacksmith. When Skalitz is attacked, both of his parents are killed by the invading forces of Hungarian King Sigismund, led by Sir Markvart von Aulitz. Henry’s quest then becomes your own; to exact vengeance upon those who destroyed his hometown, friends and family. Along the way, Henry finds himself embroiled in the affairs of the great lords in the region. Rather than give in to the hatred fueled by the death of his boyhood, Henry decides to become a man and help in any way that he can against the ramifications of the assault on Skalitz.
