  • slide 1 of 4

    Basics

    Burning Crusade brought the blacksmithing specializations to the game that was not there prior to that expansion. Now you are able to get a mastery in either armor or specialized weapons, with these masteries you get exclusive bind on pickup items. Just keep in mind that once you get a certain specialty in the game you will have to pay 100 gold to unlearn it and take a different one should you change your mind.

    With Axesmithing you will get high level and specific axe only patterns throughout the game. You'll need to be at least a character level of 40 and have a blacksmithing skill of at least 200. There are specific trainers that you will have to go to in the game to get the specialization that you want. With Axesmithing you will need to go to Ironus Coldsteel if you are Alliance or Borgosh Corebender if you are Horde to get Weaponsmithing. There is Kilram to go to for Axesmithing sub-specialty.
