Crafting Guide – Blacksmithing

Blacksmithing allows you to create heavy armor and metal weapons from ores you gather in the world. You can gather items without learning a separate gathering skill.


You start out with one point in each of the crafting professions. Creating, deconstructing, and improving items levels your crafting skills. Once you reach certain levels, you can choose to apply your skill points to passive crafting skills. 

NOTE: To be able to craft items beyond the first tier, you must apply skill points to the Metalworking skill.
