Doesn't the fact that sockets stack with enchants mean that blacksmithing is grossly overpowered?

Not really.Does a single socket make it grossly over powered reletive to... say.. Making a mount? (Tailor/Engineer)? or Self Only Ring Enchants (enchanters)?They should make it consistant with the fur linings tho' But I think it would break the object model. Sockets are stack with Enchants on all gear. Fur Linnings are just 'Leather worker' enchants.It is not like they can put a socket on EVERY piece of gear the own, just hands and wrists, I believe./shrug. I don't play a BS, but this doesn't bother me.

It's not really overpowered, because if you look at something like leatherworking, they get a massive spell damage or AP attachment to bracer. I think the SP one is something like 80? Whereas you can only socket whatever the highest spell damage gem is ( I have no idea what it actually is, but I can't see it being more than 18) So you could have something like 18+18+one enchant vs. the huge 80 to bracers.Sorry if those numbers are off, I think they're reasonably close, at least for demonstration purposes.

@ChromExcept if you have BS and LW, the two will stack. BS sockets will stack with everything, including enchants, whereas things like LW linings and engineering tinkers will not.
