Content Update 1.0.5, which is being deployed in three days, contains a new vendor recipe. You can trade any Map and a 20% quality Stone Hammer for a Cartographer's Chisel. This recipe is designed to be useful to end-game mappers who have a surplus of low maps and want to receive more items from the higher maps they are running. It also raises the value of Whetstones and incidentally creates demand for normal Stone Hammers.

This is awesome. I'm always running low on Chisels when doing high level Maps on my Domination character since I always 20% them before doing them so this recipe will be very useful. I have too many 66s too so it all works out. The last part will be farming Stone Hammers. Another awesome use for white items in an ARPG game.

Yep, good recipe.

Gives relatively low level/poor characters (60-70) a new thing to farm for as well, since you can farm those components through time and effort alone rather than luck and convert them to currency or save them for your personal use.

seems pretty cool but what is a stone hammer? a regular weapon?

Yeah, it's a 1H mace. They start dropping around late Act1/early Act 2 Normal

Yeah, you'll have to excuse Mad Cow. He doesn't know that items can drop in higher difficulties with increased itemlevel. I personally see a few of them every lvl 66+ Map I run. Gonna definitely stockpile them.

Yup. It's great for both ends of the spectrum. Low level players don't have a use for Chisels so they can sell Whetstones/Hammers/Chisels since they'll rise in price.

I like the recipes that gives us something to do with otherwise useless drops. Like the r+g+b socket items or ones involving flasks.

Keeps the currency farming interesting, or at least as interesting as farming can be, anyways.

Agreed. Don't forgot the 6S one.
