When a runic weapon is crafted by a players blacksmith, it has a chance to be "exceptional". When this runic weapon is exceptional, it has an extra damage modifier that makes it stronger than an actual world drop with the same damage modifiers. For example a vanquishing katana off a monster has a +9 damage modifier. An exceptional vanquishing katana from a player has a +9 modifier plus a 20% damage boost.
Tips: When crafting using runic hammers, equipping an ancient smithing hammer can raise your skill by (+10, +15, +30, +60) skill points. Ancient smithing hammers are also obtained through the bulk order deed system as BOD rewards. If you have 100 blacksmithing, you could potentially craft with 160 skill. By having this elevated skill, your chance at failing, or crafting a non-exceptional weapon is greatly reduced. Simply equip the ancient smithing hammer, And click on the runic hammer in your bag. Each runic hammer will use the same type of ingots to make the weapon. To make a valorite war hammer, you will need valorite ingots.
