Since the days long before AOEO originally shutdown its servers, the thought of buying a legendary villager tool (specifically the Delian Archon Hammer) with gold seemed like a myth to me, as they are so expensive that I don't think ill ever live long enough to get enough gold. Now years later with the game resurrected and my skill level competent enough to be able to do some elite Cyprus quest, this is still the case. My Villagers are currently equipped with an epic rarity tool, that provides around a 16% boost to all gather rates. The Delian Archon Hammer i believe is around 18% to 19%. That boost does not seem like much, and I don't think its worth grinding and saving for one year at the least for such a small stat boost. My eyes have been set on a new legendary tool, The Divine Hammer of Construction. If I recall correctly it provides around 16% to all resource gather rates, but most notably it increases build speed by as high as 51%! The build stat I think makes this hammer worth upgrading to... or is it? With the introduction of the Global Market, buying the Divine Hammer of Construction is now possible. However the average gold price is absurd, possibly higher than the Archon Hammer. Once again, I would probably die before I had enough gold to buy it. So the main questions i've been pondering are is it worth saving for these legendary tools, or should i spend my gold on other legendary gear that is more affordable?
