Just another day forging. I like to check other shops and see the quality, and price that other forgers put on their goods, and Ive always wondered…
What do you consider a T6 hammer?
What do you consider a T7 hammer?
Does it have to be Lucent to be T7?
Does a Diamond hammer with -30 damage make it to T6 status?
Do you even care about what it’s called?
T6 hammer (or any tool) is a tool that 1-shots their intended blocks on a T6 planet (with the right talents of course). Same for T7
You can also have a T7 hammer “with brew” meaning it will one-shot T7 rocks with a strength brew.
I care what they are called because it gives me an indication of what the tool can be used for
Diamond wise for forge stat is the +20 in the damage that 1 shot a t6 if remember right. But that same stat with a strength brew will one shot a t7. We (us in the dome) us sapphire because they have extra speed already in them and use a strength brew to 1 shot t6 and t7 planets
Diamond hammer with AoE, Damage and added Durability, along with a fast brew for tier 6
Sapphire hammer with AoE, Damage and added action speed, along with a strength 4 brew, for tier 7
Both hammers are basically just as fast as eachover, the only difference is sapphire dosent last as long (but is still better then using diamond for tier 7)
Idealy if you want the most efficient mining run then you should never use diamond hammers on tier 7 worlds, since sapphire with strength brew can still one shot, but also has higher base speed and durability
A diamond hammer with dmg 5/10 with a mega strength brew can already 1 shot T7…
I sell those as T7 with mega strength brew, it also allows me to go further on the speed and dura boons.
Tho I admit that at times when I sadly can’t get a hammer to T6 lvl I also can throw it in the T7 with brew pile and then it might not be max speed or max dura (and shhht, with -30 dmg I throw half of the hammers in the T5 stand and the other half in the T7 with brew, yes, the T7 ones are 1k more expensive, shhhht!)
