    What do you mean when you say I cant equip???

    you cant hold and it drops to your backpack?
    you cant use because you dont have skill?

    You aren't talking about a carpentry hammer are you?

    All the hammers currently in UO are macefighting weapons, none use swordsmanship.

    Perhaps a screenshot? Maybe you have a rare.
     
  5. Are you sure that you have enough strength to equip the hammer, and that you have nothing in the other hand? That should be the only thing keeping you from equipping it.

    I have the same issue with not being able to wield fish. It seems like a reasonable thing to expect.

    I don't know, I think if I could get a good enough grip on it I could swing a fish... *nods*

    To the OP I sure would like to see this swords weapon type hammer...

    You are using the wrong fish. Try halibut instead of trout. It's a common misconception. Trouts are in fact, meant to be thrown instead of wielded.

    All I know is you can't hold carp. They're for making furniture.

    For swing and release, hold by the tail. For swing and grip, hold by the gills.

    Well if you keep it on the fishing pole you can swing it around like a flail.

    The Devs are worried that if you had a hammer, you'd hammer in the morning, you'd hammer in the evening, all over this land. You'd hammer out danger, you'd hammer out a warning, you'd hammer out love between your brothers and your sisters, all over this land.

    And don't even get Mesanna started on what could happen if you had a bell.

    Then again ... could a Marlin be used as a short spear? Done right is a Flounder also a Frisbee (throwing weapon) or a bola?

    In the old days, for surprise and posterity, you couldn't beat fighting off a PK, on a miner, with a pickaxe... classed as a swordsmanship weapon. Ahh... the bliss! Nothing more satisfactory than an upset and embarrassed PK, having lost at the hands of a humble miner :)

    As for fishy weaponry, would sardines be classed as projectile weapons? Would an exploding puffa fish not add a new dimension to things, as opposed to exploding pots?

    Vacation? What is this strange word 'vacation' I have no knowledge of such a term.

    As thread hijacks go, this one was taking a fun-filled, troll-free route. I have no problem with it. Hopefully the OP will clarify his question at some point and it will get back on track.

    ... if you're talking about an air hammer, I'd think it would be archery.

    Or ninjitsu... perhaps ninja carpenters are on the horizon!!!!

    Check the strength requirement to equip it?

    Perhaps your strength might be too low. But if you want to use hammers, get yourself the macing skill. Swordsmanship = swords, not hammers :p

    It only takes off uses when you use it for crafting. Using a hammer as a weapon may lower it's durability and it may break due to that.

    eta: Oddly enough a tinkered hammer says it requires swordsmanship and you can't equip it.

    It's been that way since at least 2003.

    One of the early "exploits" of SA was tinkering the carpentry hammer tool with colored ingots, to unravel them to get residue. I don't know if that still works, but residue isn't exactly hard to get, now that SA's been out 9-10 months.
