I'd really like to know the reasoning behind the design choice of having a blacksmith who can't repair gear. The closest thing to the act town warp is the blacksmith. He can repair the mystical crown of the freaking skeleton king but not my crappy two handed ax of nothingness? I have to warp and run past the blacksmith to "Joe Bob the traveling fence" halfway across town to repair my gear, all while reading of my inferno teammates' slaughter in my chat window. Who's idea was this honestly?
It's a needless hassle. They did this on purpose obviously because it makes no sense. I'd like to know the reason why.

bc the bs repairing gear would make too much sense
the guy that makes gear repairing it as well? nonsense... obviously the people who have nothing to do with making gear, and most likely have no knowledge on how gear is made or the mats to repair them should be the ones repairing our gear
Back in beta the BS did repair gear, IIRC. They changed it to force people to use the vendors. They said that during playtesting with focus groups they learned that people didn't realize that vendors actually existed. This was also back before the large icons on the minimap as well.
I like the idea, and think it'd work great as a reward for getting your BS maxed out. Repairs are a end game gold sink, blacksmith training is a mid game gold sink. Why not reward us by giving us a less expensive repair, at maybe lvl 10 training?
+1. I can't count the number of times I have clicked on him for repair and been like, "Doh!"
^ this. i keep going to the blacksmith time after time. Then going oh yea.. Gota go to a vendor for that.
Also clicking on things in the repair menu trying to sell them. What do you mean I cant do that?.. Oh wait.. wrong tab..
I say move the repair to the blacksmith and remove it from vendors. It just makes sense.
