Blacksmithing Leveling Guide: How To Level The Profession
A blacksmith, like any other crafting profession, can only gain experience and level by crafting or creating items with the use of different materials. As a beginner blacksmith you will start off as an Apprentice, and as you increase your skill proficiency, you eventually become a Journeyman, Expert, Artisan, Master, Grand Master and finally, you would be an Illustrious blacksmith.
Blacksmithing Leveling Guide: Leveling Progress
As an apprentice you can start by crafting Rough Sharpening Stones, continue to craft these until you are able to craft Coarse Sharpening Stones and level until 75. At level 75, you can become a Journeyman at blacksmithing by returning to your trainer and getting the necessary skill. You can start as a journeyman blacksmith by creating Coarse Grinding stone until you are able to create higher level items such as Rough Bronze Shoulders and Heavy Grinding Stone. Continue to do this and you will reach the level cap for Journeyman Blacksmithing in no time.
Once you reach skill level 150, you can become an Expert Blacksmith by going back to your respective trainer and getting the necessary skills. Start as an Expert Blacksmith by crafting Golden Rods and Green Iron Leggings until you have the right amount of experience to craft Golden Scale Bracers or Solid Grinding Stones. Continue to do this until you reach level 220 and make sure collect the necessary items as you go.
Reaching level 220 you are now an Artisan at blacksmithing as you return back to your trainer and get the necessary skill. You are now capable of making Heavy Mithril Gauntlets that can provide a significant amount of experience, continue to craft these types of items until you are able to craft Thorium Helms and reach the level cap for an Artisan. This part of the blacksmithing leveling guide starts to get expensive, so make sure to farm a lot of gold to keep up with the crafting expenses.
You will become a Master in blacksmithing as you reach level 300. Start off by crafting Fel Weightstone while making your way up to craft higher level armors like Adamantite Cleavers and Lesser Ward of Shielding. Make sure to collect a certain amount of Adamantite Bars and Netherweave Cloth to suffice the crafting requirements and hasten the leveling process. Quickly make your way to become a Grand Master by reaching level 425 and start crafting Cobalt Skeleton Keys until you can craft Titanium Rods. Craft items and armors as soon as it becomes available in your menu to maximize the experience game each time you craft.
The last part of this blacksmithing leveling guide is reaching level 425 to become an Illustrious Blacksmith. Here you can craft Folded Obsidiums and armors such as Stormforged Gauntlets until you reach the level cap for you to be able to create the last available armor, Vicious Ornate Pyrium Shoulders.
Being a black smith is hard, and leveling is even harder. This blacksmithing leveling guide will assist you in leveling and what needs to be done. Be sure to level as you go and gather the needed gold and resources to suffice the need of your blacksmith level.
