A Weaponsmith crafting

"As the name would suggest, the Weaponsmith is the primary source of melee weapons. Swords, daggers, and axes of all varieties are the Weaponsmith's purview, ranging from bronze training gear to mighty weapons of ancient design and great renown."

A hero without a weapon is ineffective against the forces of evil. A Weaponsmith can craft metal weapons using bronze, iron, and steel. These include axes and hatchets for throwing in ranged attacks as well as the melee weapons: maces, halberds, daggers, axes, swords, and greatswords. Weaponsmiths can also craft specialized burglar trick weapons like marbles, and caltrops; as well as shield-spikes for Guardians and Wardens.

Weaponsmiths primarily use metal ingots that are crafted by a Prospector. The Armsman vocation has both professions and will be able to mine, smelt and refine ore into usable ingots on his own. Historian vocation Weaponsmiths do not have this ability, and will always need to find a Prospector to supply ingots for smithing.

In addition to metal ingots, Weaponsmiths will also use:

Crafting Guild

Crafting Guilds are Reputation factions that grant advantages in recipe execution. Reputation is increased by bartering special crafted items. Membership in a Crafting Guild used to be exclusive - you can be a member of 2 crafting guilds at a time (as of Update 25).[1]

Weaponsmiths of all levels are eligible to join the Weaponsmith's Guild, but the guild recipes require Expert tier and above. To join a crafting guild one must first speak to a Master of Crafting Guilds, and they are always found in the vicinity of a guild hall and at many other locations. Then, travel to Ered Luin and speak with Guild Leader Cottar Tunnelly to continue the quest. The Weaponsmith's Guild Hall is located in the eastern wall of Thorin's Hall - The Forging Hall. An alternative is to travel to the Crafting Hall in Minas Tirith (Midsummer), especially if one wishes to guild Scholar or Woodworker in addition to Weaponsmith, since all of the guild NPCs are located there. Minas Tirith (Midsummer) is accessible to characters of all levels.
