For this skill in other games, see Smithing.

Smithing is a Crafting skill in The Elder Scrolls Online.

OverviewEdit

Blacksmithing Pauldron

Smithing of an Iron Pauldron in progress.

As with other crafting skills, it is necessary to extract raw materials into craftable ingredients before crafting with Blacksmithing. Metals are required and can be gathered throughout Tamriel in ore veins. Once the metal has been extracted into ingots, the player may craft weapons and armors.

To use the Blacksmithing skill, players must use a Blacksmithing Station.

Each craftable item has a minimum and maximum number of bars. For example, a cuirass may require a minimum of 7 iron bars, and take a maximum of 13. With each iron bar added to the 7, the armor value and level requirement increases.

It is also necessary for players to use crafting materials according to the style they wish to craft. By default they are only able to craft their own race's armor style. Further styles can be unlocked by reading racial style books. The necessary materials may be purchased from any crafting vendor.
