Seriously, why would a smith with 120 smithing, +29-30 talisman, +60 ancient smithing hammer lose points repairing an item? Answer is we never would. I can understand losing a point on a repair over 100 pts. I really can't actually, but lets pretend like I can for the sake of argument. You can lose a point on an item that's 30 pts down or less than that at this point. It's plain ridiculous.
