How rare are these pre-patch runic hammers?

    I have a few pre-patch runic hammers golden through verite that have ingot properties on them. For example, the golden runic hammer has luck 40 and lower requirement 50%; others have elemental damage distributions, etc. The current runic hammers, regardless of color, lose the ingot properties and only come as one genric version.

    Can anyone tell me how rare are these hammers and hopefully their prices?
  2. those sound like colored smith hammers made with tinkering.

    LOL no they are real runic hammers as I personally handed in bod and got them and they were named "verite runic hammer" etc. It was long time ago.

    Here is a bit of history: When runic hammer came out 5 or 6 years ago (publish 14?), they are just like the ones we have now but each had 50 charges. Later, the charges were lowered according to the rarity - rare hammers had less charges. When AOS came out, all the runic hammers acquired ingot properties, as if they were made of the according ingots. Shortly after AOS, the ingot properties were removed from the new runic hammers probably because of the confusion/scam with the tinkered hammers. The old runic hammers retained the ingot properties.

    I'm not sure. I didn't consider them rares and recently threw out about 10 dull copper ones.

    However if the charges are still 50 for the higher end hammers, they would be pre patch and worth some bucks.
