*SCAM ALERT*

    Beware an old scam: smith made hammers. These are made from agapite and say 'exceptional'. Most crafters know that a runic hammer actually says runic. These do not. They are also used down to 25 charges, as a genuine Agapite Runic Hammer would spawn with. This indicates malicious intent. Hopefully no one has or will lose the 5 mil they are listed for. Vendor located at $13$, first house N out of Luna E gate.

    Thanks for the "heads up" Syn ! Even an experienced smith could fall for this scam - the seller is not preying so just on ignorance, but on the buyer's greed as well :(

    And as of last night, it is still there for sale.
    Of course, technically, I don't guess there are any rules being broken, even tho there is a moral issue involved.
    In my experience, dishonesty and greed aren't limited, so if *I* were to buy anything from that vendor house, I would be sure to burn it up quickly.

    Just sayin'...

    I agree wholeheartedly Uriah. I certainly will not be patronizing an establishment knowingly promoting such underhanded practices. Let the buyer beware indeed! How pathetic....
