    <pre><font color=red>Bugs</font color=red>

    <font color=blue>Item: Pre-AoS Runic Hammers</font color=blue>
    Problem: Converted incorrectly, all given 15 charges
    Fix: Dull Copper: 50 charges
    Shadow: 45 charges
    Copper: 40 charges
    Bronze: 35 charges
    Golden: 30 charges
    Agapite: 25 charges
    Verite: 20 charges
    Valorite: 15 charges
    Interim: Don't use all the charges, they will be fixed.
    Status: Publish 18 (mid May)

    <font color=blue>Item: Ancient Smithy Hammers</font color=blue>
    Problem: Does not increase skill above skill cap
    Fix: Increase skill properly
    Interim: Useless if you are at your skill cap, other than as a regular hammer.
    Will take you to skill cap if you are still below it.
    Status: Publish 18 (mid May)

    <font color=blue>Item: Blacksmith Gloves of Mining</font color=blue>
    Problem: Does not increase skill above skill cap
    Fix: Increase skill properly
    Interim: Useless if you are at your skill cap, other than as armor
    (Same properties as non-skill increasing gloves).
    Will take you to skill cap if you are still below it.
    Status: Publish 18 (mid May)

    <font color=blue>Item: Bulk Order Deeds (that require metals other than Iron)</font color=blue>
    Problem: BOD's won't accept the proper metal if you use the "Do Not Color" option
    Fix: Accept proper metals
    Interim: Make sure you don't have the "Do Not Color" option selected
    Status: Forwarded to QA (hopefully Publish 19) -Hanse

    <font color=blue>Item: Runic Crafted Items</font color=blue>
    Problem: The same modification may be generated, i.e. dual slayer
    properties. This can be mildly annoying, or an outright
    waste of charges on your Runic, i.e. getting multiple
    Mage Armors, which won't stack.
    Fix: Change the code so that modifiers won't replace each other.
    Interim: If you're concerned about it, save your Runics until this is fixed
    Status: Unknown

    <font color=blue>Item: Runic Crafted Items Part II</font color=blue>
    Problem: There appears to be a higher chance of getting the
    minimum or maximum value possible than getting
    anything in between.
    Fix: Code appears to be taking any random number outside
    the minimum or maximum and adjusting to the min/max
    rather than rerolling until getting a suitable number.
    Interim: N/A
    Status: Unknown

    <font color=blue>Item: Powder of Temperament</font color=blue>
    Problem: Does not work on: Crescent Blade, Double Bladed Staff,
    Scythe, Bladed Staff, Scepter, Lance, Bone Harvester,
    Long Sword (small graphic, non-craftable type),
    Pitchfork, Pickaxe, Butcher Knife, Smith’s Hammer,
    Fix: Make PoT work on all metal weapons and armor.
    Interim: N/A
    Status: Low Priority – should not work on wooden items;
    Forwarded to QA (maybe Publish 19) -Hanse

    <font color=blue>Item: GM Exceptional items</font color=blue>
    Problem: If you have makers mark turned off, the item is labeled
    "Of Exceptional Quality" rather than the item name and metal
    Fix: Proper labels
    Interim: N/A
    Status: Unknown

    <font color=blue>Item: Dragon Barding Deeds</font color=blue>
    Problem: When Smelted, return Iron ingots no matter original ingots used
    Fix: Return proper ingots
    Interim: N/A
    Status: Unknown

    <font color=blue>Item: Exceptional Iron Plate Large BOD’s</font color=blue>
    Problem: GM+ smiths have not been receiving these since Pub 16
    Fix: Make sure GM+ smiths can receive all BOD’s
    Interim: N/A
    Status: Forwarded to QA (hopefully Publish 19)


    <font color=red>Other Concerns and Ideas</font color=red>

    <font color=blue>Item: Dragon Scale Armor(all except Yellow)</font color=blue>
    Problem: Less than adequate protection in all except one resistance given the
    difficulty to make.
    Fix: Total revamp of Dragon Scale armor or allow it to be enhanced.
    Interim: Use other armor if there is any chance you will fight something that
    uses a damage type other then the resist covered.
    Status: Unknown

    <font color=blue>Item: Dragon Scale Armor(Yellow)</font color=blue>
    Problem: Less than adequate protection given the difficulty to make.
    Less than adequate luck to compensate for lack of protection.
    Fix: Total revamp of Dragon Scale armor or allow it to be enhanced.
    Interim: Use other luck enhanced armor.
    Status: Unknown

    <font color=blue>Item: Bulk Order Deed system</font color=blue>
    Problem: There are many complaints about the BOD system.
    Overall level of BOD's seems to be low (a lot of weapon BOD's)
    Return on investment for low and mid level BOD's is less than
    selling the items (i.e. insufficient gold and a useless reward)
    Fix: A new wave of low level rewards that are useful.
    Verify that distribution is correct.
    Possibly increase the bonus at higher skill level.
    Interim: N/A
    Status: Not being considered as an issue, at the moment. This will not be in
    Publish 18, 19, or 20, most likely. -Hanse

    <font color=blue>Item: Blacksmithing Success Rates</font color=blue>
    Problem: With no armor type being inherently superior, in terms of protection,
    and with the material armor is made from being of utmost importance
    it makes little sense for armor type alone to determine difficulty.
    Fix: Lower the base difficulty across the board for armors, and tie
    success rates to the metal being used as well as the armor being made.
    Interim: N/A
    Status: Unknown

    <font color=blue>Item: Repairing</font color=blue>
    Problem: The message, "That item can’t be repaired with this type of tool"
    is rather confusing.
    Fix: Message should indicate that items are either not repairable
    at all, or not repairable via that skill.
    Interim: N/A
    Status: Unknown</pre>Please note that this is not a discussion thread. Replies with additional bugs will be added to this post and deleted, others will just be deleted.
     
  2. Item: Enhancement
    Problem: It has been reported that enhancing may be easier at lower skill levels.
    Fix: This needs to be studied more.
    Higher skills should make enhancing easier.
    Interim: N/A
    Status: Crackage!


    Item: Bulk Order Deeds (that require metals other than Iron)

    Item: Powder of Temperament
    Problem: Does not work on: Crescent Blade, Double Bladed Staff,
    Scythe, Bladed Staff, Scepter, Lance, Composite Bow,
    Bone Harvester, Long Sword (small graphic, non-craftable type),
    Black Staff, Pitchfork, Crook, Club, Gnarled Staff, Pickaxe,
    Repeating Crossbow, Butcher Knife, Smith’s Hammer,
    Quarter Staff, Crossbow, or Wooden Shield.
    Fix: Make PoT work on all weapons and armor.
    Interim: N/A
    Status: Low priority - should not work on wooden items; Forwarded to QA (maybe publish 19) for only metal items

    My Elder smith just got a 10 exc iron plate LBOD, so it may not be a bug

    Suggestion to implement skill in the enhancing formular:

    Current chance * skill/1000 (for skill counted as an integer number, like on TestCenter)<pre><font color=blue>Result:</font color=blue>
    - the influence of skill is not that high, especially on already hard to imbue items:
    i.e. current success chance: a) 10% / b) 50%
    with 90.0 skill : 9% / 45%
    with 120.0 skill : 12% / 60%</pre>

    Cheers

    I don't think skill should play a part. I fail plenty, but also make some nice ones. Also many of us don't have 4-10 mil to shell out on a smithy power scroll.

    But maybe for a low end bod reward (for weapons, or weapon lbod) maybe have a tool that increases your chances on enhancing. Maybe adds 10% bonus with 25 charges. That would be desirable, and people wouldn't complain as much about lower end bod's.

    I'm letting this slip until I can take the time to fix it up with the current stuff. Rest assured, it isn't forgotten.
