Legion Blacksmithing Leveling Guide 1-800

Legion Blacksmithing Leveling Guide 1 - 800

This Blacksmithing leveling guide will show you the fastest and easiest way how to level your Blacksmithing skill up from 1 to 800.

Updated for Legion patch 7.0.3

Blacksmithing is the best combined with Mining and I highly recommend to level Mining and Blacksmithing together because you will need a lot of gold if you want to buy everything from Auction House. Check out my Mining leveling guide if you want to level Mining.

If you are low on gold, I recommend you to try this Gold Making Guide. it can help you to make loads of gold.

If you are still leveling your character or you just started a new alt, I recommend you to use a leveling guide. You can level your character to level 110 in 8 days with this guide .

Table of contents: Two way to level Blacksmithing

If your character is below level 90. visit my Blacksmithing Leveling Guide for players below level 90. This guide is for level 90-110 players.

There are currently two ways to level Blacksmithing up to 550.

  1. One is with Draenor materials because they are really cheap. (this option will probably be removed from the guide after everyone runs out of Draenor materials)
  2. The other options is to use the new Legion recipes, but it will cost you a lot more especially at the start of the expansion. However, using the new Legion recipes, you get items that are useful and can be sold at the Auction House. You can also break down the armors at level 110 to get [Obliterum Ash]. which you can turn into [Obliterum] .

So, which one should you choose?

Check the prices on your realm for these:

Choose the one that's cheaper. At the start of the expansion it will probably be cheaper to make draenor recipes for a while. But, if you farm the materials, then I would recommend to choose the Legion recipes because you can get [Blood of Sargeras] from mining Legion ores.

Leveling 1-550 with Draenor recipes (cheaper option)

First, visit your Blacksmithing trainer at Dalaran, one of main cities of old Azeroth, or at Ashran near the NPCs I will mention below. Just walk up to a guard in a city, you can ask them where the Blacksmithing trainer is located.

You have to get a [Draenor Blacksmithing] scroll to upgrade your maximum Blacksmithing skill to 700. This scroll will also teach you a few basic recipes which you will use to level Blacksmithing.

There are three ways to obtain this scroll:

  • You can buy it from the Blacksmithing trainers at Ashran. Alliance players can find Royce Bigbeard at Stormshield, and Horde players can find Nonn Threeratchet at Warspear.
  • If you build The Forge at your garrion, you can buy the scroll from one of the NPC at the building.
  • If you are still leveling your character (90-92), you have to loot a quest item to start a quest chain.
    • Alliance: Loot [Haephest's Satchel] from Draenor mobs or Karnoth during Shadows Awaken quest.
    • Horde: Loot [Fractured Forge Hammer] from Draenor mobs or Dorogg the Ruthless during The Butcher of Bladespire quest.

    You will get the scroll after you compelte the small question you get from these items.

  • 1 - 550
    There are the 3 recipes that you can use:

    They will give you 10 skill points, and each of them require 60 ores to craft, so you will need 3300 ores to reach 550. It seems a lot but these ores are really cheap, they should be under 2 gold/ore.

    If you decide you want to farm the ores instead of buying them, then visit my Blackrock Ore farming guide or True Iron Ore farming guide .

    You shouldn't use these recipes for more skill points because you will be just waisting ores. You will make Legion recipes between 550-740 that you will use later on, so basically you can level with items that you would have to make anyway.

    Leveling 1-800 with Legion recipes

    This part requires level 100.

    First, visit your Blacksmithing trainer Alard Schmied at Dalaran. Just walk up to a guard in the city, you can ask them where the Blacksmithing trainer is located.

    Unlocking recipes

    Blacksmithing recipes are unlocked by doing quests for your profession trainer Alard Schmied.

    You should get to level 110 and finish every Blacksmithing quest before you continue this guide.

    There are 34 Blacksmithing quest in total, they are pretty straight forward, so I will not write down the details of every quests. Some of the quests lead you to dungeons but you can finish every quest easily in a few hours if you start them at 110, otherwise you will have to wait because later quests have level requirement.

    Recipe ranks

    Most Legion recipes now have 3 ranks. Higher rank recipes allow you to craft an item for fewer materials. Therefore, you should only use rank 3 recipes when you can.

    Rank 3 recipes comes from different sources like Vendors, World Quests, Reputation, dungeon drops, and even rated battleground wins.

    If you hover over the little stars in your spellbook, you can see the source of the next rank for the selected recipe.

    Unlocking World Quests

    Most of the of the rank 3 leystone recipes comes from World Quests. To get these quests, you must first complete Uniting the Isles by reaching friendly reputation with every Legion faction. You can get this quest from Archmage Khadgar. (requires level 110)

    After you unlocked the quests, you have to level your Blacksmithing to at least 100 to unlock the profession World quests.

    35 - 100

    (You should be at 35 from crafting the items for the Blacksmithing quest)

    Now open your world map and check every zone for blacksmithing world quests. They are marked with the little anvil blacksmithing icon. The world quests you get are randomly generated, so you might not get one right away and have to wait even a few days until one pops up.

    If you don't want to wait for world quests, then there are two alternative recipes that you can get:

    Here is a detailed guide on how to get Sightless Eye. You can get the 500 in about half an hour, or even less. (Recommended to get this)

    Important NOTE: Jump ahead to the 739 - 743 section and read the part regarding [Blood of Sargeras] use. If you don't want to use any Blood of Sargeras for leveling, you can start making Demonsteel Bar from skill one because you will need around 1500, and you will reach 740 by making those.

    100 - 739

    It doesn't matter which Rank 3 Leystone item you choose. If an items requires more ores, it will also give you more skill points. But you should try to avoid using recipes that requires [Foxflower Flux] because it costs 4 gold each.

    I used the Waistguard as an example, but it's actually the easiest to get and one of the best one for leveling.

    You will use all of these later. It's important that you stop at 739! You won't gain the benefit of multiple skill-ups with the next recipe if you reach 740.

    739 - 743

    You can buy the [Recipe: Demonsteel Waistguard - Rank 1] recipe from Urael at Suramar. I recommend the Waistguard because it's really easy to get the rank 3 version of this recipe.

    A Firmament Stone is required to craft this. Go to Ironhorn Enclave in Highmountain, the stone is near Muirn Ironhorn .

    It really depends on how many crafted items you want to upgrade. Each use of [Obliterum] requires 2 Blood of Sargeras. But, if you don't plan to use Blood of Sargeras for that many gear upgrades, then you should use them for crafting gear because there is no other use for them.

    Here are the (approximate) numbers for 740-800:

    rank 3 Armguards: 1720 x Felslate, 860 x Leystone Ore
    rank 3 Waistguard: 480 x Felslate, 240 x Leystone Ore, 80 Blood of Sargeras

    If you want to buy everything from the Auction House, then the obvious choice is the Armguards because you can't buy Blood of Sargeras.

    743 - 783

    After you craft any Demonsteel armor the first time, you can talk to Muirn Ironhorn to get rank 2 recipe for that armor piece. You have to craft one from each if you want to get all of them.

    Make sure to get the rank 3 versions before you start crafting these!

    Make the one you choose previously:

    Rank 3 recipe locations

    Alternatives to the Waistguard:

    (you will need to get the rank 1 and rank 2 versions first)

    783 - 800

    This part will be different for everyone. These recipes will be yellow between 780-790, and green between 790-800. Yellow and green recipes won't give skill point every time, so you will probably have to make around 25-35.

    Darkmoon Faire

    You should check your Calendar in-game to see if the Darkmoon Faire is open, the event starts at 00:01 on the Sunday before the 1st Monday of each month.

    You can gain +5 skill points by completing a single quest (use it at 795). Click here to read more about the quests.

    I hope you liked this Blacksmithing guide, congratulations on reaching 800!

    I recommend Zygor's Leveling Guide. The guide is in an small window on your main screen in-game. All the detail that you need to complete the quest is included. You’ll never have to switch back to a website, or even the in-game main map to see where you have to go or what’s next. The guide is available for both Horde and Alliance.

    I use Zygor's guide for leveling and I highly recommend it.




Corsair Marine - Important Notice

Corsair Marine was originally setup by myself from 1984 to 1991 (see history ), but it was decided to part from Corsair in December 2000, and Corsair is no longer a licensed or recommended builder for Farrier designed trimarans.

Corsair was allowed to purchase the F-24, F-28 and F-31 designs at the time of parting, along with rights to a new F-35 design that had been just started. However, Corsair's right to use the Farrier name or F-boat trademarks had to be withdrawn soon after separation due to concers about unauthorized changes. Their products were then renamed as the Corsair 24, 28 and 31 (C24, C28, and C31) and all Farrier involvement ceased.

Farrier Marine provided Corsair with all its production guides in the past, while regularly monitoring construction, quality, and specification compliance, all of which took considerable time. This has now ended, so more time can be devoted to providing a larger range of both lower cost and more technically advanced designs such as the F-22. F-32, F-33, F-39, F-41 and F-44SC.

Farrier Marine will continue to operate with the same principles, quality standards, attention to detail, and customer backup service that helped make the F-27, F-24 Mk II, F-31, F-28 so successful, and which established Corsair Marine's initial reputation.

It should also be noted that Corsair's C36 should not be confused with the Farrier F-36 or F-39, which are completely different trimarans, and true ocean going cruisers. The Corsair 36 is based on the initial F-35 hull lines, but my involvement ended very early in the design process due to various differences, along with concerns about supervision and quality controls. Corsair renamed this design the Corsair 36, and after various problems they have now renamed it again as the C37. Farrier Marine has had no involvement in either structure or implementation of the C36/C37, and actual designer remains unknown.

I was asked to inspect a C36 in 2004, which had suffered a number of structural failures, and found the beams and folding system structure were not to Farrier standards, and I would not take such a boat offshore. Corsair was advised at that time of my concerns and it was recommended that they warn all owners of what to check and monitor, but it appears this may not have been done. A C36 suffered structural problems in late 2008 and had to be abandoned at sea, and another with serious beam bulkhead structural problems was also reported to me in 2012 (an independent report available on request). A C37 has now also been abandoned at sea in 2014, due it was claimed to float damage from a collsion, but no photographs of the damage have ever been made available.

If interested in purchasing a Corsair trimaran, then it is a case of buyer aware, and advisable to check the qualifications and experience of whoever is doing their design or redesign work, plus who is responsible for production supervision and quality. I would not buy one of their boats, but if doing so, and purchasing a C24, C28 or C31, then be very sure to insist that it is built to my original specifications, and check it over at delivery using the Farrier Marine New Boat Delivery Checklist before accepting delivery. This is available on:

There are however no Farrier specifications for the C36 or C37, which was done solely by Corsair, and on its record so far this is a trimaran to avoid. Corsair will also not state if it has now implemented a defect notification system for existing boats, so if going on an extended voyage in any Corsair built boat then it would be wise to contact them first in order to find out if there is anything to be concerned about.



New Runescape 3 1-99 Smithing Guide 2014 (EOC)

New Runescape 3 1-99 Smithing Guide 2014 (EOC)

In this guide i will tell you the best,fastest and cheapest way to get 99 Smithing (smith) on the online game Runescape.

Smithing is known to be as one of the hardest skills to master on Runescape. The reason for which it is believed to be one of the hardest skills is that it can cost quite allot of money and it is also quite boring making platebodies. If you are looking for a fast and cheap skill-cape to get then Smithing is definitely not the best cape to be going for, instead you want to go for a cape such as cooking (this guide can be found on my profile). Now on with the Smithing guide :)

In order to carry out my method to 99 you will need to complete The Knights Sword Quest, this is a very easy quest and on completion you will be rewarded with 12,725xp in Smithing which will give you a Smithing level of 29.

Fastest Method to 99

Levels 1-29 = Complete The Knights Sword Quest

Levels 29-33 = Make Iron Bolts (unfinished)

Levels 33-48 = Make Iron Platebodies (90k xp P/H)

Levels 48-68 = Make Steel Platebodies (140k xp P/H)

Level 68-88 = Make Mithril Platebodies (170k xp P/H)

Levels 88-99 = Make Adamant Platebodies (210k xp P/H)


From levels 29-99 you will need to use an anvil so i recommend going to Varrock west bank and using the anvils directly south of it. Smith on the anvils and then when done run back to the bank to deposit the platebodies and take out your new bars, this technique should be used all the way to 99 Smithing.

Profits and Losses

By doing this method you are going to make a loss of around 150-200m depending on the current prices in the grand exchange. Below i will show you how to calculate this loss:

1)Find out the price of one bar of the particular metal that you wish to smith in the grand exchange.

2)Multiply that price by 5 (this is because it requires 5bars to make a platebody)

3)Find out the sale price of that particular platebody and then subtract it from the cost of 5bars. the final figure will be the amount you will lose per platebody that you make.

If you have any problems calculating prices leave a comment in the section below and i will get back to you within 48hours thanks. )

I hope this guide helped you and gave you an insight into getting 99 Smithing, if it did please comment below as i really appreciate your comments and also remember to vote this page up, leave feed back via the quick action buttons below THANKS.

The Salary of a Farrier

The Salary of a Farrier

A farrier is a craftsman who trims horses’ hooves to restore balance and prepares and applies protective, corrective or therapeutic horseshoes. A farrier’s salary is determined by a wide range of factors, including the farrier’s education and experience, training, location, types of clients and overhead expenses. Because a farrier is responsible for setting his own rates per shoeing session, he may adjust rates according to an individual client’s or business’s needs.

Overall Salary Range

The salary of a full-time farrier ranges between $24,000 to $100,000 annually, with a median salary of $58,536. Diversity in location, education, experience, training, overhead expenses and types of clients can have a dramatic effect on a farrier’s income. Farriers who work exclusively with thoroughbred racing or competition horses with highly specialized trimming and shoeing requirements earn significantly more than farriers who concentrate on companion or pet horses.

Novice Farriers

A novice farrier is an individual new to farrier work and whose experience consists of a standard six-week shoeing school. The novice farrier generally works under the supervision of a more experienced mentor to ensure no harmful mistakes are made in trimming and shoeing the horses. A full-time novice farrier begins work at approximately $24,000 annually and can improve to the journeyman level with additional training, experience and continuing education.

Journeyman and Master Farriers

Once a farrier reaches the level of journeyman through continuing education and experience, average salary increases to approximately $36,000 per year. When a farrier achieves the level of master, he can expect to earn an average of $40,000 annually. Salary for each level increases with each year of experience. Farriers who possess formal collegiate education or teaching credentials have an opportunity to earn even more.

Formal Education and Other Credentials

The most promising way for a farrier to increase his annual salary is through formal education in equine science. Farriers who hold a four-year B.S. degree in equine science from an accredited university can expect to add $5,000 to their yearly income. Farriers who go on to earn a master’s degree in equine science will possess additional diagnostic and therapeutic skills and can expect to earn an additional $8,000 yearly. Farriers with teaching experience and formal degrees often earn up to $25,000 more per year than their counterparts with similar farrier experience but no formal education or teaching credentials.

Belt Materials Commonly Used in the Farrier Market Aluminum OXIDE (AO)

Often a brown material, used most often for maintenance of tools with finer grits (100, 120 and up). This material will not have good life when used to grind shoes or steel with coarser grits.

Zirconium OXIDE

A particulate material that gives better life than straight AO, working well for general purpose grinding of many types of material. Often has coolant coating such as with 3M 577 or 877 belt series.


These belts will give the best life for metal use and many farriers have found these to be the best value even though they can be more expensive than Aluminum Oxide and some brands of Zirconium belts. Generally less expensive than 3M Zirconia. Common grit for grinding shoes is 40 on an expander wheel although they are available in coarser and finer grits.

  • 24-40 grit - aggressive grinds
  • 60-80 grit - mid-range grinding
  • 100+ grit - tool finishing/polishing
