this may sound competely stupid...but for some reason i just cant figure out how to repair and/or identify items. I looked all threw the manual and pretty much talked to every merchant type person in the shrouded hills... and i cant seems to figure it out! Im sure its something competely ovious. But hey, i figured i'd ask. Please dont get the wrong idea, im not a newbie gamer. But it seems like arcanum dosent really lay things out for you in a easy understanding why. Thats just my idea, i still love the game. I've just found certain things pretty frusterating.
