Old thread, but yeah, the Anvil of Artifacts sucks. Just bought one as i'm trying to finish up my Dexxer Luck Suit, and i'm trying to craft a Studded Gorget with low Physical/low Fire/high Energy (2/4/3/11/16 is what i was crafting with the Anvil), and reforge it to clean 150 Luck (+LMC or +Stam as well is fine) using a Horned Runic with just Grand Artifice+Inspired Artifice (Auspicious/of Fortune). In 18 attempts, i ended up with 0 clean 150 Luck Studded Gorgets. The closest i got, was a Studded Gorget with 150 Luck but it also boosted the Energy Resist from 16 to 26, taking it over what i needed and eating up a property slot/intensity, making it to where i couldn't imbue what i wanted on it.The moment you introduce the RNG of the Reforging system into the mix, the Anvil of Artifacts becomes a waste.Seriously, the only real reason you'd have to use the Anvil of Artifacts, is when trying to craft a Luck Suit. Major/Legendary Artifact loot provides superior Mage/Dexxer armor compared to what can be crafted, but Auspicious/of Fortune doesn't spawn on Major/Legendary Artifact loot (so no high-end Luck gear, asides from the pre-patch no-name Legendaries that go for several Plat).@ Kyronix There any particular reason why Auspicious/of Fortune does not spawn on high end armor anymore?Major/Legendary Artifacts that were Auspicious+of Wizardry would be perfect for a Caster Luck Suit, but Dexxers would still be forced to rely upon crafted gear to have a Luck Suit with both +Stam and +LMC.
There should be no random in crafting and of story...
Yes when it takes hundreds of reforges to maybe get an item close to what you want, The anvil is useless.We should be able to apply it when the item is completed. Or make it have 100 charges.I have never tried for just Luck so maybe that would be too easy if it had more charges. But Mystic of Haste is not too easy. Or any two property reforge.
