As the metalworker of the alliance town, he is responsible for the grade and quality of the steel used in your weapons and armor. If funds are devoted to the refining of his craft, he can upgrade the materials and skills used, allowing the creation of better swords and shields. His talents are also sought after in the construction of specific goods and building materials that are essential to other professions. They work out of blacksmith shops.W1ManH 35
Blacksmiths are an important part of many settlements dependent on military protection.
While the metals that they forge are a vital component in the construction
of advanced buildings, they are especially known for their skill at weaponcrafting
and armoring. The smiths of Lordaeron, occasionally aided by
their skillful Dwarven allies, are renowned for producing some of the finest
quality weapons in the northlands. The Blacksmiths and Elves are rumored
to be developing a machine that may alter the course of the war against
the Horde.W2Man 55
At the blacksmith, the dwarves refine their mastery of gunpowder. It is also
at this building where more effective steel-forging methods are researched
and perfected. Human troops depend upon the blacksmith to provide both
increasingly effective weapon blades and more impenetrable plates of armor.W3Man 75
All objects that require the strength of iron are made here. As money is spent to build hotter forges and mine for better metals, the quality and deadliness of the axes and shields that are produced will increase. Metal is also a vital component in the construction of some Orc’s buildings and materials, and to create a site for them will be impossible without the aid of the Blacksmith.W1ManO 55
The Orcs that live and work in the Blacksmith shops are veteran warriors
themselves. Understanding the value of strong steel, they are always developing
new techniques and methods to improve their weapons or upgrade the quality
of their armor. The steel that they forge is essential in the manufacture of the
devastating Catapult, and their skills also aid in the crafting of the strange
mechanical workings that are used to improve the accuracy and strength of these great
machines. Their expertise is often required for the construction of advanced structures.W2Man 82
The Blacksmith run by High Elves helped fend off Arthas as he tried to attack their capital Silvermoon and Quel'thalas in Warcraft III by upgrading fighting units. The Blood Elves use a similar blacksmith in the Frozen Throne Expansion Campaign in Warcraft III. It cannot be built by the "High Elf (Worker)" probably due to the limited ability of the map editor prior to the Frozen Throne Expansion. With the Frozen Throne Expansion map editor, it is possible to make additional groups with building orders.
Blood Elven Blacksmiths
The Blacksmith building helped the Blood Elves and Kael'thas in Warcraft III Frozen Throne Human Expansion Campaign.
