Blacksmithing in Classic WoW is one of the most profitable crafting professions but at the same time, probably one of the most sought-off and expensive ones. Using this guide, you’ll get your Blacksmithing level to 300 in no time. We strongly advise that you pick Mining if you plan on leveling Blacksmithing since you’ll need a lot of materials in the process. However, if you’re starting fresh, some players pick 2 gathering professions to get gold faster and get that epic mount when they reach level 60. Once you get to 60, you can dump the other crafting profession and get Blacksmithing.
his guide focuses on the fastest route to get to level 300 and evidently, this may not be the cheapest way since it means you have to buy some materials from other players or the Auction House. We also recommend visiting our WoW Classic Master Guide for all the professions guides, leveling, farming guides and class builds.
BiS Blacksmithing Items
It’s also worth noting that some Blacksmithing items are BiS (Best in Slot) for certain classes such as Paladin, Warrior or Shaman. Sulfuron Hammer which is needed for the legendary Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros is one of the sought-off weapons in the game and one of the hardest to get. Lionheart Helm and Titanic Leggings are also 2 armor pieces that are exclusive to Blacksmithing and their recipes Plans: Lionheart Helm and Plans: Titanic Leggings respectively.
It’s very important you train your Blacksmithing constantly after reaching the caps, to avoid wasting materials and to get new recipes. That being said, you can always ask a city guard for directions to your local Blacksmithing Trainer. That being
- Bengus Deepforge (Artisan Blacksmith) in Ironforge.
- Therum Deepforge (Expert Trainer) in Stormwind City.
- Smith Argus (Journeyman Blacksmith) in Goldshire.
- Tognus Flintfire (Journeyman Blacksmith) in Dun Morogh.
- Clarise Gnarltree (Expert Blacksmith) in Duskwood at Darkshire.
- Saru Steelfury (Artisan Blacksmith) in Orgrimmar.
- James Van Brunt (Expert Blacksmith) in Undercity.
- Karn Stonehoof (Expert Blacksmith) in Thunder Bluff
- Dwukk (Journeyman Blacksmith) at Razor Hill.
- Traugh (Expert Blacksmith) near Camp Taurajo (Barrens)
It’s also worth noting there’s also a neutral BS Trainer named Brikk Keencraft (Master Blacksmith) in Strangletorn Valley.
