Specialization-Quests

Armorsmith

To become an Armorsmith, pick up the quest WoW Quest-IconThe Art of the Armorsmith from either WoW Allianz Grumnus Steelshaper in Ironforge or WoW Horde Okothos Ironrager in Orgrimmar. They both want you to bring them these items:

Total materials required if you craft the items yourself:

After finishing the Quest you are an Armorsmith and able to craft unique mail and plate gear which Weaponsmiths cannot. The gear you can craft is in the list below the weaponsmith section.

Weaponsmith

To become a Weaponsmith, pick up the quest WoW Quest-IconThe Way of the Weaponsmit from WoW Allianz Ironus Coldsteel in Ironforge or WoW Horde Borgosh Corebender in Orgrimmar. They both want you to bring them these items:

Total materials required if you craft the items yourself:

After finishing the Quest you are a Weaponsmith and able to craft specialized Axes, Maces, and Swords.

In Burning Crusade the Weaponsmith specialization is divided into three sub-specilizations: Axesmithing, Hammersmithing and Swordsmithing. You don’t have to complete any more quests, just talk to one of these NPCs in Everlook, Winterspring to specialize even more:

In the following section you can find the weapons you can create with the respective specialization.

Specialized Armor and Weapons

Specialized armor or weapons are crafted in a tiered fashion, heightening your item level from tier to tier with more materials. For example, to get Bulwark of the Ancient Kings as an Armorsmith you have to Breastplate of Kings, then extend that with additional materials to make the Bulwark of Kings, and then again crafting the Bulwark with even more materials to create the Bulwark of the Ancient Kings. These crafting chains are learned from your Armor or Weaponsmith trainer.
