Blacksmith Certification is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls Online.


The Vestige learns the basics of blacksmithing from Millenith of the Fighters Guild.

Quick WalkthroughEdit

  • Talk to Millenith
  • Acquire Iron Ore
    • Search for Iron Ore

  • Talk to Millenith

  • Talk to Millenith


The quest can be found at the Fighters Guild in either of the Alliance's First Cities.

Millenith will ask the Vestige to craft an Iron Dagger by first mining Iron Ore and then refining it into Iron Ingots. Ore can be found outside of the city. Once they retrieve the right materials, they will need to make Iron Ingots with the Ore they retrieved. She then tells them to craft the Iron Dagger using their respective style material (i.e. Adamantine for Altmer or Corundum for Nords). Once they've crafted their dagger, Millenith will then ask them to deconstruct it or some other Blacksmithing item. Deconstructing can level up one's Blacksmithing Skill. Once said task has been completed, the player will receive the certification.


  • One can skip the quest entirely by reaching Level 10 in Enchanting. They will be given the certification regardless of the quest once they reach this point.
