I've proven you wrong, you can infact repair broken weapons in the game. You can repair a weapon that loses durability. I've proven that. A system in the game does allow for the "repair" of weapons. When you go to a blacksmith you are repairing the broken weapon. Because you can only do this after you have obtained the weapons in question and take either weapon to its blacksmith. It's repair. Call it "reforging" or whatever you did, but it is WEAPON REPAIR. This is only one of the methods I have mentioned to fix a weapon. There's also again, the ocktorok method which works on ANY weapon, and not just rusted ones. If I recall the quote in the guidebook correctly it says "It will spit it out for you in brand new condition" so yeah. Play the game and gtfo.
