    so i went over to test and it looks like maybe someone with approx 99 smithing and a high blacksmith exceptional (but no bs bonus) talisman could pound them out with DC hammers, but im not working the skill to 99.. after already getting legendary.

    or maybe i can just find them on mobs. but wheres the best place to get them?

    yeah, anywhere in stygian abyss expansion. but, those often have useless mods. for human/elf elemental weaps I like the mino's in miasma's lair, for they have the perfect sweet spot where there will be elemental weaps but very light on the mods. is there such a place for non exceptional elemental throwing weaps?

    IMO the best way to get them are with either DC or Shadow hammers.

    I don't believe that your skill will play a part in it at all, unless you are wanting to make them non-exceptional. In that case you might want a lower skill level, but just use your 120 smith if exceptional is what you are after.

    It's completely just a matter of luck with the RNG unfortunately. You're just hoping that one of the runic properties from the hammer roll to an elemental change. And then crossing your fingers that it's high enough to work with, and with other mods that you can use.

    Just keep in mind that weapons that have split damage can be enhanced to 100% if the split is right. 40 physical, 60 fire can be enhanced with bronze to get a 100% fire damage weapon for an example. This is how the vast majority of mine are made.

    yeah im working with dc runics, was just hoping to supplement. there arent a lot of DC runic hammer suppliers on my server so its hard to get them.

    busted an awesome gargish warfork which was 40 fire/30 poison/30 phys. enhanced bronze to make it 70/30 and corpse skin friendly. had never had a failure on enhance before with weaps, esp with no mods on it yet. i tried again with ancient hammer and it was ok so i will do it that way from now on, just bummed i lost that war fork. wouldve been awesome for disarms

    I'd try the tomb of kings. The silver serpents and undead things at the back spawn fast and drop fast. The serpents always gave me low intensity loot, and I think it was mostly SA stuff. The undead things generally dropped 3 magic items with varying intensities. I looted a 100% fire damage gargoyle style axe of some sort there recently with no other mods.
