Blacksmith is Useless
If you're going to have this kind of discussion, please explain why you feel whatever you list is "useless" or not very valuable to you in Diablo III. It doesn't really help us when you just say you dislike something; that gives us very little to worth with. Instead, let us know what you think isn't working and then list the kind of improvements you feel would make it better. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
i think that Blacksmith would be more fun if they build "option" to combine items (purple and yellow)!
so for example:
if we have let's say 1h axe (yellow)
and we craft /or "find" drop other 1h axe,
than we go to blacksmith and combine that 2 in to 1 axe, but
on that way you get 50% / 70% ... stats of each axe
1st axe have like 100 str, 50 vit and 80 int.
2nd axe have like 200 str and 160 int.
so axe we "build" (combine) would have : 150 str / 25 vit / 120 int
on that way you can get lot of stats with item combine,
but won't be OP coas on each combine you lost % of stats from each item!
