Providing an average of total durability is useless #1

    What is the enhancement in mind? How should it look and feel?

    Currently DuraBroker averages the durability of each item and displays the result.  However, knowing the average durability isn't what is important.  Knowing the durability of each item and the lowest durability is much more useful than the average durability of equipped items.

    Please provide any additional information below.

    While this isn't DurabilityFu, I had hoped to replace DurabilityFu with this addon, but after also using Cork (and getting its alerts), I realized that the value computed wasn't an indicator of whether I was in dire need of repairing equipment.

    For instance, if an item is broken (0 durability) and all others are at full durability, this addon will not alert the user to a problem.  If the broken item is a weapon or shield, ouch.

    Particularly if you have a ranged item at full durability (since you are using a melee character) or swap item sets via an item swap addon, you will miss the fact that your bracers are broken (or something similar).  Each item is only worth a few percent of your total durability.
