So upon coming back to the game with the M&S update, I've gained an interest in leveling my skills ( obviously ). I LOVE LOVE LOVE the rework, but it's utterly broken Invention for lower level players like myself.

At level 31 I'm trying to make a hammertron for DXP weekend since i plan on getting as close to 99 smithing as possible. ...

ONE BIG ISSUE. Subtle components.

You can only obtain these via scimitars, defenders and whips apparently. Whips are expensive sitting at 75k per currently & Scimitars are non-existent on the GE due to the long smith times.

That leaves the scimitar shop. slow, tedious and NOT guaranteed to obtain your materials.

How am i supposed to gain experience whilst smithing when i can't even make one hammer?


As I said i love the rework, but i dont think this was taken into consideration before actually launching it. ( i just discovered this horrid truth about an hour ago. )

Edit - Apparently you can't edit a post... sooo


Smithing the Scimitars is FAR too long & Defenders cannot be purchased and are even less reliable than whips & Scims.

to be honest this needs patched like now.

I would've suggested using shops, since they're a great way to top up materials for the occassional augmented tool, but they're glitched ever since the rework (i.*. the stuff is way too expensive).

Seemingly it's recognized as glitched, but not fixed so far. It might still be worth a check though.

Yeah, it's just annoying. I want to get my parts since i'll be smithing for a good portion and i mean it's just a giant missout on invention exp since I can't get any subtle parts.

What about making salvage smithable?

It would take 5 ticks to make (3s) & cost 2 bars for tiny, up to 10 bars for huge.



Also you don't need an augmented hammer to smith so you can still make your own scimitars to get the components you need.
I know it's slow but its what you can do if you want the hammertron.


Also you can buy salvage from the GE.
