So with the changes going live to Tradeskills, I picked up Weaponsmithing and Armoursmithing and have been giving those a go. Gotta say, I really like it. I was thinking though, what with the Hammer of Forging being removed entirely, if it would be possible to have generalised crafting tools for the Forging Tradeskills, that can be purchased in Delos and decay like any other item.
A lot of the tradeskills already use certain basic tools for their craft ( e.g. pots, phials, schematics, needles, etc). What about having a generic hammer and maybe even tongs for forging, that would be required to be on hand in order to operate the forge. Currently it works under the pretense of using the tools already available in the forge, but what smith likes to share tools? They get lost, stolen, or even left to ill-repair, and that can be frustrating!
I think being able to have at the very least hammer and tongs would add a level of impressiveness that some users of other Tradeskills already experience.
