artifact dice

Mon 11 Feb 2019, 00:41

Hello again. Let's say I have a mastercrafted longsword (+2 gear, +d10 artifact die). I roll to hit. After the roll has failed, and after I have already pushed, the results are no successes, but both gear dice show 1's. What happens to the sword? Is it: 

a) potentially destroyed, because it's Gear dice are reduced to zero, and on a failed Repair roll it's destroyed? or
b) reduced to +0 Gear dice, but still usable as-is with its d10 Artifact die? Essentially meaning a weapon with an artifact die can never be destroyed? or
c) because "Artifact dice are never degraded", the weapon never takes any damage, even with 1's on the Gear dice?

A)

Tomas (lead designer for the game) answered this (somewhere) that a weapon needs at least one gear dice to work. In my game, one of the players have found a magic trident. He is so afraid to push all of a sudden because of this (the trident has a gear bonus of +1).
