Augmented crystal hammer detail.png

The augmented crystal hammer is created by using an augmentor on a crystal hammer. Researching the ability to create hammer-trons also unlocks the ability to augment crystal hammers using augmentors.[1] It contains two tool gizmo slots.

Augmented crystal hammers gain item experience at a rate of 7.8% of the base experience of normal Smithing actions performed while wielding it; this includes smelting bars, smithing bars, and actions in the Artisans' Workshop. Protean bars give half the item experience compared to skilling with regular materials.

Augmented crystal hammers retain the passive effect of the unaugmented crystal hammer—+1% chance for double progress when smithing any core metal.

The Augmented crystal hammer uses charges stored in the universal charge pack. When the charge pack runs out of charges, the item loses stats and gizmo effects, and can also no longer gain any equipment experience. Function will resume when the pack is recharged with divine charges.

To use an augmented hammer's perks, the player must have charges in their charge pack. Use of an augmented crystal hammer costs at most 0.31 divine charges from the player’s charge pack per second. This cost can be reduced by researching charge drain improvements or by adding the efficient perk to the item.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Previously, it required 150 inspiration to unlock.
  • Prior to the Mining and Smithing rework, the hammer gave an extra 5% chance of saving a bar when smithing an item with at least three bars if wasteless smithing had been unlocked.
