Ive never played minecraft, but sockets and enhancements are in a variety of games. I feel like its a concept that  fits well with Dont Starve.

Seems too complicated considering how not-very-durable armor is at the moment. Same goes to repair function. Since currently thulecite is mainly renewable via resetting ruins by killing Ancient Fuelweaver, I can see Thulecite stuff being self-repairable on their own as a nod to thulecite's  renewability itself. It also would resemble old DS-style Woodie - they are very good at what they supposed to do, but use them too much in a short amount of time and they'll "let you down". Drop few 1% Thulecite Clubs after boss fight at Toadstool and when you come back for another fight they'll be 100% again.

I'd make all player crafted weapons be able to be repaired, but since the resource to fuel the repair structure would be rather rare you probably wouldnt want to waste it on a normal spear. As for being too complicated it would work like an ice flingomatic in terms of fuel consumption combined with something like the carrat training machine where instead of giving that structure a carrrat you give it your weapon and instead of stats increasing durability is increased.

Not going to lie, when I saw runes I thought of Diablo 2. (Jah Ith Ber anyone?)

 

Yeah i got inspired by a lot of rpgs and arpgs. Thing is DST already has a ruins sections, and the Metheus puzzle is all about solving runes. Socketing gems into moonlens is already a thing. I think the next logical evolution is to connect those is to introduce a system like this.
