Blacksmithing

In Diablo 3 every character will have access to their own personal version of an Artisan Blacksmith. These blacksmiths will, through their crafting menu, allow you to Forge Armor, Forge Weapons, Salvage and Train your Artisan’s skills in order to unlock new crafts. The Blacksmith Artisan is unlocked very early in the game and then can be found in New Tristam and every major city throughout the acts.

Warning: If you hope to make gold with your Blacksmith it’s going to cost you a lot of gold up front to do so. It’s going to cost you damn near 1 million gold after buying the materials needed to reach Exalted. I suggest you focus on getting your character to Inferno before spending gold on your Blacksmith. If you want to make gold in the mean time I recommend you visit Marcko’s Diablo 3 Community Forums to learn more about how people are making gold today.

Leveling Blacksmith Artisan

The first thing you’re going to want to do to make real money and gold in Diablo 3 is to level your Artisans. There are 10 different levels to each Artisan, starting with Apprentice and working its way to Exalted. It costs a lot of gold and materials to level your artisans though, so don’t just casually level your blacksmith right away without determining if it’s smarter to sell your gold for real money and buy it back later.

If you choose to level your Blacksmith to Exalted here is what it will require:

  • 50 Pages of Blacksmithing
  • 50 Tomes of Blacksmithing
