Blacksmithy

Post has published by rubix

A blacksmith crafts most weapons and armor used in the game

Capable of crafting a variety of different armors, and every melee weapon used in the game, save staves and bows. The warrior depends mightily upon his most frequented smith. Able to craft items in simple iron, or an array of other metal colors. A smith will find that the colored metals increase the armor rating of his wares.

 

Usage

Blacksmithy is engaged by using a smith’s hammer or tongs, while in range of an anvil. This will bring up the crafting gump, where you can pick the item you wish to craft, or select to repair an item by target. Be careful when repairing weapons and armor, especially with a low level smith as it is possible to destroy the repaired weapon through failure. Also available to blacksmiths is the ancient smithy hammer, these magical hammers grant a temporary bonus to blacksmithy skill while equipped.

 

Complementary skills

One of the most commonly paired skills with blacksmithy is of course mining, the means to supply yourself with raw material. Another often overlooked pairing with blacksmithy is tinkering, the ability to make ones own tools can save time and resources.

There are also some crafted items that require both carpentry and blacksmithy to craft, such as the forge and anvil addons for a house.

 

Training

Training a blacksmith is as simple as crafting increasingly difficult to make items. Blacksmithy is one of the more expensive and time consuming skills to train, as such a player would be advised to start a smith with 50 skill at character creation or at a minimum to obtain training from an NPC. When blacksmithing for skill gains, it is advisable to pick an item with a high probability of success (but not 100%) as more gains tend to be had from success than failure.

To macro blacksmithy effectively, will require a fair amount of attention, both to assure you do not run out of ingots or tools but also to make sure that crafted items do not overfill your bag. Ideally find a good amount of ingots to not overfill your bag and make a macro to craft your item repeatedly until you are out of space for items or out of ingots. Then use a second macro to recycle your crafted wares, this is accomplished through the crafting gump and targeting the chosen item to melt down into ingots.  Keep in mind you could also sell these items to a NPC smith instead.  

 

Power Scrolls

This skill can be raised above a level of GM up to 120 through the use of power scrolls.
