Shortcuts: Blacksmith (Class)
"Ain't much to tell. Pick up an 'ammer an' ye're free t' call yerself whatever ye wish―an' if what ye wish is t' be a smitty, then at least yer first step's been a right proper one. A good smitty can make most anythin', long as she's an 'ot forge an' a cool anvil, but most these days specialize in poundin' out weapons an' tools for ye wide-eyed 'venturers. 'Course, not all smit'in' calls fer poundin'. There be men what wield other tools t' forge their creations―th' fruits o' their labors takin' on a diff'rent color." - Qhas Chalahko
Completing Blacksmith Local Levequests can earn you Guild Marks, which allow you to purchase various items from Qhas Chalahko, the Blacksmiths' Guild Mark Vendor, located within Naldiq & Vymelli's. A list of available wares and their prices are listed below.
|Brand of Fire||6000|
Various items can be purchased with Gil from Smydhaemr, the Blacksmiths' Guild Vendor, located within Naldiq & Vymelli's. These include tools used by Blacksmiths, and other various goods related to Blacksmithing. A list of available wares and their prices are listed below.
|Weathered Cross-pein Hammer||1200|
|Iron War Axe||225680|
|Ash Hammer Grip||8064|
|Bronze Claw Hammer Head||10200|

Smydhaemr also offers use of the Guild's Facilities to Blacksmiths who are in need of support in their synthesis. Common, Guild, and Master Smith's Forge support is available for a small fee, which increases as your Blacksmith Level increases. Currently, some recipes have a "recommended" level of support, which will have a negative impact on your synthesis if you choose not to obtain the proper level of support. On a side note, you can obtain Common Smith's Forge support from Repair NPCs, and various Camps across Eorzea.
"Th' Admiral's got us workin' the forges day and night, readyin' the armada fer somethin' big. Left our stockhouses bare as a whore's back end, it has, but the guilds ain't got the manpower t' plenish 'em. 'Tis why the forgemaster started postin' tasks on the wall o' th' Wench. Might ye be interested?" ~ Bodenolf
Guild Tasks are simple quests in which the guild requests the adventurer to bring various items to the guild in exchange for a reward. Currently only Level 1 and Level 10 Guild Tasks are available. The requested item changes daily, and the reward varies. (Gil, Shards, etc.) You can find out which Tasks are available by either talking to Bodenolf or by examining Task Boards around Limsa Lominsa.
As you level your Blacksmith, you will be able to undertake various quests that will require your talents as a Blacksmith. These quests follow a storyline that revolves around the Blacksmiths' Guild and your role as a Blacksmith in Eorzea. Although an awful lot of work may be involved in completing these quests, the rewards are well worth the effort. Below is a brief summary of the available quests, with links to lead you to their respective pages, where you can find more specific information, if you require assistance in completing your assigned task.
NOTE: These guild quests are shared between Blacksmith and Armorer. If you do one as Blacksmith, you will not be able to do the same one as Armorer. Therefore the Guild Mark rewards can only be obtained once on which ever Class you choose to do the quest as.
|An Ear for Quality||20||20000 Gil / 2000 Guild Marks|
|Song of the Sirens||30||30000 Gil / 3000 Guild Marks|
|The Sound of Silence||36||36000 Gil / 3600 Guild Marks|
