Durability: The weapon's HP, when the durability hits 0, the effectiveness of its attacks become weakened to the point of almost uselessness. When an items durability is low, a message will come up saying "Weapon At Risk!" at this point the weapon does not perform at it's best.

      You see that part in the description where the game tells you this is an inefficient weapon? That's the game lying to you. At 50 Str and 7 Dex the damage of this weapon compared to the Mace is 375 to 369. That's not all that much more given the hammer's increased weight, but the increased poise damage is very useful. Yet where this weapon truly shines if when enchanted. The B scaling from physical damage gets moved to elemental damage, which really works in your favor if you meet the minimal requirements to wield the hammer. Plus, the base stats of an enchanted Blacksmith's Hammer are quite a bit higher than those of any other weapon in its class, making it very effective. If you want a single weapon with limited stat requirements on any caster build, this is a solid choice.

        With the Stone Ring and enough stamina, if you 2H this you can stunlock the Loyce Knights to death. Very efficient for farming Loyce Souls, especially if buffed with a Lightning Resin. Just take out the 1st one that comes out of the portal, stunlock and kill and and if you do enough damage you can prevent the 3 from ganking you. Just farmed 25 Loyce Souls in an hour, with max item discorvy.

          This thing gets a b scaling in elemental damage with high base damage the beat poise damage esp if you combine it with stone rung this baby stunlocks everything

            I think it's funny how DS2 described this hammer with, "Can be used as a hammer, but not to any great effect, as it was made to shape weapons, not serve as one"... While it is one of the best hammers
