Can a magical net be repaired and keep its properties?

This is a follow-up to this question: Can a magical net be destroyed?

Let’s say you have a +1 net which you throw at a target. The target then uses one of its attacks to attack the net, touching it and dealing enough damage to break it.

After defeating the target, you take the pieces of your destroyed net and mend them back together (using the Mending cantrip). Would that give you back your +1 net, or just a plain non-magical one?

This question is in the scope of Adventurers League, where it is indeed possible to get a +X net (if the magic item is a +X weapon if any kind).

Can Destroyed Mundane Objects Be Repaired?

I am no doubt being overly pedantic, but the text of the Mending cantrip states:

This spell repairs damaged objects, restoring 1d4 hit points to the object. If the object has the broken condition, this condition is removed if the object is restored to at least half its original hit points. All of the pieces of an object must be present for this spell to function. Magic items can be repaired by this spell, but you must have a caster level equal to or higher than that of the object. Magic items that are destroyed (at 0 hit points or less) can be repaired with this spell, but this spell does not restore their magic abilities. This spell does not affect creatures (including constructs). This spell has no effect on objects that have been warped or otherwise transmuted, but it can still repair damage done to such items.

It specifically says magic items. Does this spell not apply to destroyed non-magic items?

Also, in the rules on damaging objects it says:

Damaged Objects

A damaged object remains functional with the broken condition until the item’s hit points are reduced to 0, at which point it is destroyed.

Damaged (but not destroyed) objects can be repaired with the Craft skill and a number of spells. (eg. make whole or mending)

Grub repaired after W10 update, but now W10 won’t boot

I have W10/Ubuntu 18 dual boot, both systems on one SSD (booting BIOS, not UEFI) Recent W10 update messed up my partitions and I got grub rescue screen. I was able to fix it with recovering linux partition using parted rescue. After that I was able to boot, selected W10 and it successfully finished the update process. After that I was able to boot int Ubuntu, but with a slight issue – “No symbol table”

I run

sudo grub-install /dev/sda sudo update-grub 

It fixed the linux boot, but now when I select my W10 from grub menu it just reboots and back to the grub menu.

Here is my disk partitions:

~$   sudo parted /dev/sda print Model: ATA Samsung SSD 850 (scsi) Disk /dev/sda: 256GB Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B Partition Table: msdos Disk Flags:   Number  Start   End    Size    Type      File system     Flags  1      1049kB  106MB  105MB   primary   ntfs  2      106MB   144GB  144GB   primary   ntfs            boot  3      144GB   144GB  543MB   primary   ntfs            diag  4      144GB   256GB  112GB   extended  6      144GB   248GB  104GB   logical   ext4  5      248GB   256GB  8210MB  logical   linux-swap(v1) 

My W10 is number 3, which I confirm by ls (hd0,msdos2)/ in grub

What I see in the grub.cfg for W10 section:

menuentry 'Windows 10 (on /dev/sda1)' --class windows --class os $  menuentry_id_option 'osprober-chain-68349BA7349B7732' {         savedefault         insmod part_msdos         insmod ntfs         set root='hd0,msdos1'         if [ x$  feature_platform_search_hint = xy ]; then           search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root --hint-bios=hd0,msdos1 --hint-efi=hd0,msdos1 --hint-baremetal=ahci0,msdos1  68349BA7349B7732         else           search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root 68349BA7349B7732         fi         parttool $  {root} hidden-         drivemap -s (hd0) $  {root}         chainloader +1 } 

That seems to be wrong as it points to hd0,msdos1 the small reserved partition, the UUID of W10 partition is 86CA9C8FCA9C7CDD and it is hd0,msdos2 (/dev/sda2)

I tried to re-run os-prober and update-grub, but nothing changes. Please help me to recover my W10 booting from grub menu, thanks in advance.

16.04 not booting. Mounted it on 18.04, data seems fine. Repaired Grub

Been raked over the coals with this one.

16.04 crashed while running. Could not even get grub to come up. It is not a dual boot system. Only 16.04. Just screen flashing. No command line access with no ability to read log files. No ability to go back to run level 3 (systemctl in ubuntu). Nothing.

At first, I reinstalled grub from an 18.04 trial install. After that I Was able to select “ubuntu recovery” on boot but with no effect. Same flashing of the screen with no command line access.

I’m sure that it is not a physical problem with the disk. A few weeks ago this same thing happened on another drive. I cloned the drive with DDrescue to another drive. Data was ok. The problem followed the new drive, implying that the problem was in the operating system. Somehow, not sure how, I was able to boot the new drive.

Now I am “in” the new drive and the same thing happened.

Loaded 18.04 on top of 16.04 and I can mount 16.04 and see programs, data.

Is there a way back from this? I don’t want to have to download 300G on another drive at this point (downloading that much data is expensive).

Thank You Tom

How can a damaged magic item be repaired?

All objects, including magic items, have hit points. Some magic items, such as Ioun Stones and the Apparatus of Kwalish, specify how many hit points they have in their description, while the rest of the magic items can be assigned hit points based on the Object Hit Points table (DMG p.247).

Moreover, as explained in Magic Item Resilience (DMG p.141), many magic items even have resistance to all damage, so even though in my experience it’s rare for magic items to take damage, it is nonetheless possible. In particular, the Apparatus of Kwalish is likely to take damage at some point while being used.

However, I can’t find any guidelines to repair magic items, hence the question.

If a magic item takes damage, how can it be repaired? Is it any different from repairing mundane items?

A good answer should be based on existing rules, not arbitrary suggestions. Pointing out that no such rules exist is also an acceptable answer, should that be the case.
