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.

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.
NOTE: since Update 27, players may find the guild NPCs located in the House of Craft in Minas Tirith (Midsummer) [23.2N, 54.9W] to be preferable to Thorin's Hall, since the crafter's second guildable profession -- Woodworker for Armsman or Scholar for Historian -- can also be guilded in the same location in Minas Tirith (Midsummer), thus obviating a separate trip. Minas Tirith (Midsummer) is available to characters of all levels. At Minas Tirith (Midsummer), the emblem (Reputation Item) recipes are purchased from the Guild-leader; there is no separate NPC for guild-reputation-item recipes, as there is in other locations. The only downside of Minas Tirith (Midsummer) is that the "Introduction" quests for each guilded profession cannot be turned into the Guild-leader, since those quests require a specific named NPC, who does not reside there.
