This is a guide to obtaining every blacksmithing recipe in order to be the most complete Blacksmith. It has been designed primarily around Blacksmithing skill level rather than character level.

There are times, though, where character level will intrude— where you must be a particular level if you wish to learn a given rank of Blacksmithing skill or where you must face foes of a particular level should you want to do some particular task.

This guide specifically omits recipes learned from trainers. If you cannot find Blacksmithing Trainers, this guide is probably not of much value to you.

What to do? Edit

Method 1- Shopping: When the going gets tough, the tough go shopping! Many recipes are available from vendors, in limited quantities or not. Part of the point of this article is to tell you where to go to get them...

Method 2- Auction House trawling: Many recipes are world drops. That is, anything, anywhere, of the appropriate level can drop the recipe. Since there are many more tradeskills available than you can take, the odds that a given recipe drop being one that you can use is small. Your odds are much better looking to the auction house.

Method 3- Hunting: As opposed to the above, some recipes are looted off of only a select number of creatures. For some, you need defeat only one (or a very few). Others are more elusive and you may find yourself devoting days to the hunt. For some, you must defeat a boss in some instance to acquire the given recipe. Still, some (but not all) of these are Bind on Equip and so may be found in the auction house.

Method 4- Questing: Sometimes, the only way to learn a recipe is to do "favors" for people (or "work the right lever on the right machine"). Also, there are some quests that require the fruits of some tradeskill. While this article is primarily about gaining recipes, these quests may (or may not) provide opportunity to gain skill in your craft. Note that some of these recipes are tradeable, whilst others are not. While it is mechanically possible to find these recipes on the neutral auction house (or even the opposite faction one), it is vanishingly rare to actually find them there.

Method 5- Reputation: Many recipes are privately held by a group and you may only acquire it when you reach some level of favor with that group. As gaining reputation is more arduous (generally) than either gaining levels or gaining skill, these recipes have been listed separately.

Method 6- Other: Some things just do not fall into neat categories (for, you see, "everything is miscellaneous"). Some schematics fall into several categories. Where possible, the easiest means of acquiring the schematic is the one mentioned or given to you. Also, schematics that are Bind-on-Pickup(BoP) are noted as such. All schematics requiring reputation (and some vendor-sold ones) are Bind on Pickup.

VendorEdit

Magnus Frostwake
To gain access to this vendor, you must complete Kirtonos the Herald to gain Spectral Essence (you must also have the essence equipped).
Derotain Mudsipper
A neutral NPC who gives quests for the entire Imperial Plate set. You have to have at least 265 blacksmithing skill to get these quests. Note also that many of the recipes require considerably more skill than 265 to use (that is, to learn the recipe). As the quests consist of: Pay X Thorium Bars, get a recipe, he is much like a vendor.

Artisan skill: 300 Edit

300 was the skill cap prior to Burning Crusade. A lot of items require 300 skill to learn/craft. A lot of those required adventuring rather than simply asking a vendor...
