About this mod

(SotFS only) Increases weapon, shield, armor, and/or ring durability to make the game much more enjoyable to play. Plenty of options allow you to choose between a balanced experience as the developers intended or making durability a complete non-factor.

This is a pretty simple mod that just increases the durability of weapons so the game is less annoying to play. This mod has several options to allow each person to customize the durability to their liking. You can increase the durability of weapons by 2x, 2.5x, 3x, 4x, 5x, or 10x. I have also included the option to choose whether this durability boost is only applied to weapons or if it is also applied to shields, and separate optional files are available to increase the durability of armor and rings as well.

In addition to the options above, I have included two more options that allow you to boost the durability of weapons that are used to cast sorceries, miracles, and pyromancies by more than melee weapons. You can increase the durability of these weapons by an additional 50% or 100% (or no additional boost). This is because those weapons are already restricted by the number of times a spell can be used, so some players may not want to be so restricted by the durability of the weapon on top of that.

Note: This mod is only compatible with the Scholar of the First Sin edition of the game.

1) Extract the downloaded .zip archive and open the folder of the extracted archive.
2) Choose which one of the options you want to install and open that folder.
3) Move the enc_regulation.bnd.dcx file and Param folder to your game's installation directory (where DarkSoulsII.exe is), overwriting the original files.

You may want to make a backup of the enc_regulation.bnd.dcx file and Param folder first, in case you want to uninstall the mod later.

Warning: Using any mods while online will likely trigger the game's anti-cheat system. I highly recommend preventing the game from connecting to the online servers while playing with any mods installed.
