Try to avoid items with dura by using npc/quest/stage items.
That's what I thought originally, but I do recall that some of my armors' durability didn't go down or went down really slowly when I didn't die in stages, and the number that went down didn't match with the number of stages I was doing. I'm just not sure if it goes down by just being in the stage
, or goes down a bit whenever you attack or die
since I never stopped attacking.
