Artifacts should be something everyone desire for, something unique, and something hard to get, instead of something people throw on the ground or sold in bulk at dirt cheap prices. Meanwhile, artifacts should be something everyone has an equal chance getting them. Players have been asking some artifact turn in system because the supposely desired items have been so common that players have ran out of storage for them. Let us enhancing them! Keep the enhancement difficulty unchanged. 9 out 10 artifacts will break upon enhancement, but the surving one will be quite unique. This will turn a lot of "junk" arties into something more desirable and will motivate player keep on hunting to acquire them. In a sense, the arties will become resources, like ingots, woods, leather, etc. While making this change, please also let us add something else to weapons other than just changing their elemental damages. The rare gems or peerless resources can be utilized for this purpose. Currently, enhancing weapons other than adding luck doesn't make much sense. The rare gems and peerless ingredients (with one or two exceptions) have lost players' interest for some time now. The items made by runics may not be so uber compared to enhanced arites. But the Ancient Smith Hammers will become popular again. This change will affect most of UO players regardless of their professions.
