[Blacksmithing] +skill hammer use

Holding the +skill hammer and using a tong in your pack used to consume a use only on the tong. It now will subtract a use from both the tool in your pack and the one in your hand.

If you target the hammer in your hand for smithy then it subtracts only from that hammer.

I've never known it to NOT consume a charge from the ASH being held, going back to the publish that allowed an ASH to be held while using a runic (6 or so years ago).

Hmm. I always held it and used tongs because it never consumed a charge. My +60 hammer had been 460 for over 4 years and now from use its 448. I used to do this with runics so I held the +60 hammer and used the runic.

If it wasn't using using charges, then you were bugged in a very nice way, until recently.

The only thing I could make that didn't use charges with a tool in my pack, while holding an ASH, were repair deeds.

I accidentally burned through half my first +30 using normal tools in 2004, from forgetting to unequip it.

No it didnt used to consume uses. Until last month sometime. My poor hammers are losign their charges fast now :( I believe they nerfed it becuase the +30 is great for RF farming with val ingots and the proper runic(s)

A +15 hammer and a talisman with 25% exceptional bonus is enough (at legend blacksmith) to produce knights war cleavers for 100% exceptional.

Ya my +60 is in the mid 100's now. Makes me think I'm going to have to start doing bods a little more...Oh well.
