I have an Iron Maul of Flame. It "Deals 40 Flame Damage". I can destroy it for plain materials at the blacksmith. Is there any way I can get something special out of an item like this? For example, at the enchanting station? (Although, I saw no option for this at the enchanting station.)


No. You can't get the weapon enchantment or other extras back from weapons and armors.

You can get three types of items back by deconstructing one:

  • base material: like wood, metal or cloth
  • the style material: and only the one being used, limited to only those who can be crafted. Yokudan, for example, can't be extracted.
  • enhancement material: only the ones fitting to your item enhancement level. So out of a fine (green) sword you are only able to draw out one Honing Stone; a orange (legendary) one may give you one Tempering Alloy.

  • More-or-less OT: Don't be sad, for leveling purposes you will always find enough enchantment runes for your armor/weapons and for late-game gear your guild mates will gladly help you creating them. :) – Trollwut Jun 10 '15 at 14:01
  • you can also research an item to get the trait from it, which is different than an enchantment (e.g. This item deconstructs for 280% inspiration / sells for 75% more, etc). this destroys the item in the process though, and takes a few hours IRL. – Dpeif Jun 15 '15 at 13:38
  • @Dpeif Bad examples imho, as neither of those traits (Intricate and Ornate) can be learnt by deconstruction. – Alok May 23 '16 at 22:29
