'Does your mother know that you want to learn how to make weapons? It is hardly the pursuit of many hobbits.
'If this is what you desire, then who am I to stand in your way? A word of warning though -- weapons hurt if you drop them on your toes.
'You will want to speak with Balbo Bag-- I mean Balbo Grubb, over there by the forge.'
The art of weaponsmithy reaches back to the First Age of Middle-earth. Those who expend a great deal of energy into this profession are sought after for their finest and even their more mundane works. Weaponsmithy is a difficult, but rewarding profession. As a new weaponsmith, it is best that you learn the basics of your craft.
Be careful! You will need to complete the correct recipe and deliver the correct item outlined in this quest.
You will need to execute the bronze weapon recipe and deliver the weapon. Failing to do so will force you to obtain new raw materials or to restart the quest after a 24-hour delay.
You should speak with <NPC> at the forge in <location> to learn more about weaponsmithy.
<NPC> provided you with a crate full of ingredients that you can use to create a bronze weapon recipe. Open the crate to get the ingredients.
