Equipment is ranked much like jutsu from D to S. This rank is given based on the overall strength of the Equipment itself (durability) and the abilities the Equipment possesses. Ranks, abilities and prices are given on a case to case basis at staff discretion. It takes two staff signing off on your weapon for it to be approved at its current state. It should be stated that TYPE of equipment also has an effect on final price.
Equipment durability is how much your item can stand before it is broken. This works off of the normal durability stat. And correlates with your opponents strength stat.
The types of equipment are as follows:
Armor: This is an item that is worn in the place of or over top of traditional shinobi gear to add to one's durability. It should be noted that one's armor can ONLY add to durability and no other stat.
D- +200 Endurance
C- +300 Endurance
B- +400 Endurance
A- +500 Endurance
S- +600 Endurance
SS- +700 Endurance
Combat Items: These are items that are used within combat in order to harm ones opponents. These include things like smoke bombs and explosive tags.
Support Items: These items are used to aid your character while in combat. These can be things like chakra replenishing pills, Storage scrolls, ninja wire, etc.
Equipment can only be of ONE type.
