I know the forging system has been changed radically, but is there any chance we could get these two things back, in some form, with some function? Many trade skills, such as butchering and inkmilling, have an artefact associated with them, some have traits. Weaponsmithing and Armorsmithing are very important and expensive but they don't. I am totally open to ideas what the trait and the hammer should do now. But it just feels weird to be on top of forging and unlike the other trade skills it has nothing like this associated.
Maybe allow up to 5 items to be made in a string like Medallion of Enchantments... or allow a modest but significant reduction of comms needed for a modifier... or a small stat boost. Kinda like what the mighty butcher cleaver or golden ink mill does for those trade skills. Especially the reduction in comms would be incredible for hammer or trait, even if it's like a 7-10% reduction.
Thank you for reading my idea.
