Bestowal dialogue

'It is without question that the Elves have crafted the most elegant and noteworthy weapons throughout the ages of Midde-earth, and I am pleased to see that though we will soon leave this place, we will continue to focus on the arts which we have perfected in our time here.

'I have asked one of our promising novices to watch over and guide any new weaponsmiths towards learning the very basics of the profession. Their name is <name>, and they stands near the forge here <location>.

'Speak with they, and they will teach you the very basics as they progresses in their own studies.'


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 a 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.

Objective 1

  • Speak with the Novice Weaponcrafter near the forge in the crafting area.

You should speak with the Novice Weaponcrafter to learn more about weaponsmithy.

Master of Apprentices: 'You should speak at once with the weaponsmith trainer.'
Novice Weaponcrafter: 'If you are looking for guidance in weaponsmithy, then I am prepared to offer you direction.
'If my methods are too fast, feel free to speak to me again, and I will answer any questions that you may have. I will do my best to provide you with clear direction. The first and most important step is having the proper ingredients.
'I have kept some of these ingredients aside for purpose of providing to new scholars. Take this crate and let us begin.'
Weaponsmith vendors sell ingredients and recipes that are a vital part of any Weaponsmith's training and continued work.
You have been provided ingredients

Objective 2

The Novice Weaponcrafter provided you with a crate full of ingredients that you can use to create a bronze weapon. Open the crate to get the ingredients.

Ingredients for Weaponsmiths are normally purchased from vendors or traded from players with the prospecting profession and, in some cases the woodworking profession. You can also find ingredients on the Auction Hall.

You now have all the ingredients to make a bronze weapon

Objective 3

Create a bronze sword, dagger, axe, great sword, or throwing axe, as instructed by the Novice Weaponcrafter.

Novice Weaponcrafter: 'You need to make a bronze sword, dagger, axe, great sword, or throwing axe and return to me for approval.'
To open your crafting panel, you can use the T key or click on the crafting button (it looks like a hammer and anvil) in the lower left part of your UI.
Select the Weaponsmithy tab in the craft UI and find the proper recipe.
Remember: In order to execute a recipe, you must be near the proper facility. Weaponsmithy requires a forge.
You have made a bronze weapon**

Objective 4

  • Bring the bronze sword, dagger, axe, great sword, or throwing axe to the Novice Weaponcrafter

The recipe is complete. Do not sell the bronze weapon! It is time to show your handiwork to the Novice Weaponcrafter.

Novice Weaponcrafter: 'I see the <weapon> there on your person. May I see it?'
They takes a moment to admire your handiwork.
'This appears to be a well-crafted weapon. You are well on your way towards becoming a weaponsmith. Well done, <name>.'
