    Couple questions...
    I have been collecting bods for the past six months and have gotten a couple golden hammers, a couple aggy hammers and I am a couple bods away from a verite and valorite hammers.

    The question is.... should I make weapons or armor with the hammers? I also do tailor bods and have a few Barded kits to use for armor.

    I have a fencer and a swordsman...

    I was also thinking about adding poisoning to my fencer, I heard there are only a few weapons taht can be poisoned now, that being true which weapons should I create?

    Any help is appreciated...

    Well there are a lot more useless mods for weapons then there are for armor, but you can make some really awesome weapons with the high end hammers provided you don't roll:

    -damage type mods
    -resists (phys fire etc)
    snow elemental slayer (or other such useless slayer)
    Mage weapon (unless you are wanting this lol, but it shows up on more then half the weapons I have ever burned out of golden or higher hammers)
    damage increase (wasted imo, because you get enough from exceptional arms lore bonus)
    Lower Requirements
    Luck (wasted if you want a nice weapon to smash stuff with)

    Where as armor, the only completely wasted properties making samurai plate (which gets mage armor bonus free) is going to be nightsight and reflect physical.

    sooo up to you on how much you need a good weapon and how well you are going to trust in the evil random number generator. Just sucks to burn an agapite hammer on a weapon type, not like any of them, and smelt all 30 down back into ingots knowing you just wasted a hammer you could've sold for 5M

    Definitely weapons.

    You can make elite armor with Barbed Runic Kits, which are much more abundant.
