 Sword Smith

Are you the sort who likes to be close to the action, or do you prefer to watch from a distance? Sword smiths work hard to supply all sides with weapons, then sit back and enjoy the carnage.

Before you begin this profession you should ask yourself if you have anything to gain from it. Players who are experienced in handling a bow will not be interested in buying or making swords. So unless you know a gang of wealthy Iops and Ecaflips, you should think twice!

As with all the weapon-making professions, not everyone will be able to use what you create, so your clientele will be specific. The only warriors who will invest in your creations are the two classes mentioned above. Adventurers from other classes will almost never purchase from you. If you are having trouble getting rid of your stock, you can always go to the nearest smithmagic workshop and strip a weapon down for its runes. You'll be able to sell these for a nice profit. A little tip: lots of 10 Twiggy Swords usually sell in and around Bonta.

To maximize your profits and keep your costs to a minimum, you should start making friends with a miner as soon as possible! Nothing is better, however, than being an expert in this profession yourself before you start your career as a Sword Smith. This way, you can collect many of your materials yourself, since minerals are what you need most.

Do you know just what sort of sword you'd like, but you can't find it for love nor money in the Marketplaces of the world? Go see Two-fingers (6,-18) in Astrub smiths' Marketplace to learn the basics of this noble art or Hanniball Smisse in his Amakna workshop (-1,2).

Once you've got the hang of making swords, you'll need to invest in the tools - start with a Sword Smith's Hammer, which you can get from whoever taught you the trade. It'll cost you 150 Kamas.

That's it! You got the tools, you've got the know-how, nothing remains but to get down to business!

It's time for you to forge your first sword, so put down your weapon and equip your Smith's Hammer! When you arrive at one of the Smith's Workshops on Pandala Island, click on an anvil and select the action 'Forge a Sword'. Then slide the ingredients into the slots available, bearing in mind the quantities you see in your recipe window.

The materials you'll need to create your sword are as diverse as they are unusual - Crab Pincer, Gobball Eye, Kaniger Nail - you never know what you'll need next! You can do without some ingredients, but others will be absolutely essential - wood and especially minerals, are the basic components of most recipes. You can buy all these materials in the Marketplaces of the world, in particular the ones that serve miners and lumberjacks.

When you start practicing your profession, you'll only be able to use simple recipes, and only ones with 2 resources (i.e. 2 slots). Once you get a little experience under your belt, you can move on to more complex recipes with more ingredients and more slots. The list below tells you the different grades of recipe along with the level you require to be able to use them:

  • 2 slots (level 1+)

  • 3 slots (level 10+)

  • 4 slots (level 20+)

  • 5 slots (level 40+)

  • 6 slots (level 60+)

  • 7 slots (level 80+)

  • 8 slots (level 100+)

Like with the craft professions, the more complex a recipe is, the more experience you'll gain if you manage to do it. But the lower your level is, the less likely you will be to succeed in using it... bear in mind that no recipe is a guaranteed success.
