A crucible. MSRP- *300cr **400cr ***500cr

*Allows owner to smelt at 1/2 cost balance

**Allows owner to smelt at 2/3 cost normal balance and has the chance of getting extra commodities from the smelted item.

***Allows owner to smelt at 2/3 cost normal balance and has the chance of getting extra commodities from the smelted item.
Portable smelting cauldron that would allow the owner to drop it, fire it up, and smelt from just about anywhere.

    Just one artefact, but different prices depending on what it does.

    We could make this a SoW item.

    Time to inject a sensible comment into this thread. Smelting shouldn't be something you should pay for. Forging already has perks to apply (balance modifications, hammer). I would approve of this idea if there was a smelting pot in Thera's forge, and artefact ones were portable and gave the increased effects of the OP.

    And at what point would it become financially viable instead of turning those credits to gold and buying steel? (500 credits - 3 million gold at 1cr/6000g). I also realise the convenience of @Peak's ten thousand dagger problem.

    If I could pay for an artefact that gave me full comms/full minus 10%(rounded up to whole commodities) back on smelt, even if it was 1000cr, I'd do it. Anything less function wise and I couldn't be arsed. The problem is weighting the benefit against the gold sink forging is supposed to be, which even at 1000cr would eventually become well worth the investment.

    True, forging is a major gold-sink, and anything that reduces the gold cost will raise the gold price of credits/reduce the supply of credits to those who don't buy directly from Achaea. I don't have any problem with it in principle, but need to consider to what extent the economy will be destabilized.

    @Peak, what do you think?

    a grandmaster's crucible - 1000cr (+/-)

    (Note: will function only for the owner!)
    This tool is a boon to blacksmiths everywhere, drastically reducing the waste of smelting. Like a blacksmith's hammer, this does not need to be wielded to function, merely be in your inventory. Smelting an item will return the commodities of a given item minus 10%, rounded up to whole commodities. You may never lose less than 1 commodity out of the deal, so sadly to all of our would-be knife throwers, daggers will still smelt down to zero commodities, because f- Peak.

    I never use my own obsidian these days. I don't particularly like it because it just means we'll get those rapier-only forging noobs (granted they'd have to trans forging) that sell what they make then transfer the credits to a dif character.

    Except for the fact that those credits earned in this manner are IC, and thus shrubbed if transferring them. Also, LOL. You know as well as I do how much effort it would take to make the 1000cr back versus just buying them outright on the other character. If someone's willing to do that, let em.


    Edit: 1300 for trans forging. Double lol if they do it without a hammer.
