Smithing is the skill used to make most metal tools, weapons, and armor; it deals with the gross manipulation of metal, while its sister skill, metallurgy, deals with the more detailed aspects of metal working. This skill requires metal, often in the form of bars or ingots, as well as a hammer, anvil, and forge. Several smithed goods also require work gloves to protect a character's hands during the crafting process.

Smithing requires dedication to learn on one's own, as it requires either a large amount of money to purchase raw materials or a reliable source of metal. A character interested in following this profession may wish to become an apprentice to another character who is already an accomplished smith.
