Armor repair question

I haven't played in a long time so when I went to armor repair guy I notice he didn't offer the option or does it only show up after you die?

    The option should be available whenever you have a damaged piece of armor.

    Also keep in mind every time you waypoint to spawn in WvW any damaged armor gets automatically repaired.

    Last time I WP in WvW, it didn’t repair armor, that was a day ago.
    Please cite your source for this info. The Outnumbered buff means armor won’t get damage, are you confusing this with your un-cited info?

    OP, you’ll see a shield at the bottom right of the Health globe if your armor needs any repair. It’ll transition from yellow, and broken red to determine amount of damages. All repairs are free.

    Better get a wriggle on.

    Read under "Permanent Waypoints". Thought it was common knowledge by now, my mistake.

    I guess I may have to keep an eye on that because it’s not been working for me, I’ll probs bug report it in due course. Let’s remember that the Wiki is player made too.

    Perhaps (and, nope, I didn't test this, it is just a hypothesis), it only repairs damage within WvW. So if you enter with damaged armor, it stays damaged

    It was during a 3 hour play session in WvW, but thank you for your feedback.

    Please note that auto repair only works on spawn waypoints, not Keep waypoints.

    It only gets auto-repaired at the spawn. Any additional keep waypoints have an anvil of repair, you have to do it manually there.

    I read the wiki, thanks. I WP'd back to a spawn, and no bueno. Like I said, I'll keep an eye on it and bug report if neccessary.

    Nope. Going from LA into a borderland(my server's in this case) works fine. It is interesting to note that I did see the damaged armor icon for a second after loading before it got auto repaired.

    i feel it's kinda an outdated system with how little punishment it gives compare to other games, games like Diablo gives you a very good reason to prepare and incentive to get good because the repair bill can add up
