So I have just hit level 80.  Up until now I never paid for armor repair.  I just purchased new higher level armor after a few pieces were damaged as I went up in levels.  Now that my level is fixed I was thinking of buying nicer armor.  Is there anyway to avoid the high repair cost other than not to die?

Jump/fall  to your death instead of dying. Only works when you are near a ledge. Works in wvw also.

This is correct. As an experienced faller  (100+ deaths from falling) I can confirm this is true.

Logging out works also in all game modes, just a hassel of loading screens getting back to where you want to be.

Loging out does not work. If you are being attacked by a mob and near death and you log off, once you log back in you will find yourself dead.

Yes. I got DC'd while fighting. When I relogged, I was already dead.

I don't think repair costs are high enough to be worth any extra bother in avoiding them.

But do you find your armor damaged?  (which I think is the point of this)

(I don't actually know, but I've been known to walk off a cliff about things)

If you are level 80, the cost of repair should be nominal.  That is unless you die alot.

You may be dead but your armor isn't damaged if you time it right so yes it does work in Avoiding Armor Repair Cost.

If you are playing elementalist or warrior, use your mistform or resurection skill and then log off.

Problem with this is that you have to pay for WP cost unless there is someone to revive you (that actually is not away from keyboard...)

If you're in battle and log out under about 40% health, then you still have to pay armor costs. If you're between 40% and 70% health, you log in defeated, but with armor intact.

Numbers are approximate, so please don't quote me.
