[Blacksmithing] Question about Ancient Hammers.

Discussion in 'UO Craftsman' started by Coragin, Nov 28, 2009.

    I know a charge gets used even if you are using tongs to make an item if it is equipped.

    My two questions are this.

    1. Does a charge get used when enhancing an item?
    2. Does an ancient hammer make a difference with failures of enhancing?

    Is there any kind of ancient hammer type for fletching, carpentry or tailoring?
     
  2. No and yes and no
    It raises your skill so you will fail less

    Specifically, there is a +1% chance per 10 points of skill over GM, to your chance of successful enhancement.

    So a 120 Smith has a +2% bonus, which becomes +8% if holding and using the ASH +60.

    Just to add to this as a reminder before enhancing...So use your best regular talisman bonus with the 120 and +60 smithy will give the most chance. If you don't have a good one then get one from the heartwood root quests. You will still fail though.

    Talismans have no effect on enhance chances, just crafting.
