[Blacksmithing] Petition to get damage increase removed from runics!

    Sorry, a little bit of a rant here, but it is frustrating burning through a bunch of gold/bronze hammers to see a property wasted on damage increase, for example getting a wep with 42% damage increase instead of the exceptional 40. Anyone else agree?

    I agree - after all, the Exceptional bonus is now so close to the max property value, there's no reason to have it as a runic bonus. They should just change the ore types to give additional DI, like the woods, and remove it as a runic roll (but leaving it as a looted item roll), and having DI a property addable to a weapon using imbuing, that doesn't follow the normal imbuing limits - IE can be added to a 5 property weapon, and does not count as a property for adding other properties).

    I would like to see Balanced become "slightly" more frequent.

    I agree, weapons need to be able to be enhanced just like bows. Even just 10 SSI would be so helpful on a nmber of weapons I have looted. I do disagree with you on the imbuing thing. I think that val hammers should be unique in there ability to provide 6 properties, with imbuing only able to give 5.
