Everyone that makes things with multiple crafters knows that different sorts of tools have a vast difference in the amount of uses. Tongs- scribes pen's are the simplest example I make a LOT of tools. Nothing I can really do about that. I always made them exceptional 100% until today because I have really good talismans. Today I was doing a whole lot of bods and forgot to change my talisman. Several of the non-exceptional tongs had more uses than the exceptional ones. This can't be right. Exceptional tools should not ever have 50-54 uses, but even if they did a non-exceptional tool would definitely not be a better tool.
