Legion Blacksmithing Guide

  • The Max skill on professions in Legion is 800.

New ore in Legion: Leystone Ore

The gear you can craft as a blacksmith is divided in two subgroups

  • Leystone (715-785 ilvl)

You can upgrade crafted gear from 815 to a maximum of 850. Check out my guide regarding this, here.

As a Blacksmith you can also craft Relics used on Artifact weapons. Check out the guide here covering Artifact weapons and relics.

As a blacksmith in legion, you can also craft 2 items for your mount

  • Leystone Hoofplates (increasing speed while mounted in the Broken Isles by 20% for 2 hours)
  • Demonsteel Stirrups (allows you to interact while mounted in the Broken Isles for 2 hours) - I found this Recipe in Azuna. It droppen from Equine Sunrunners. I got two in a row (maybe luck maybe not). Eqiene Sunrunners can be found at 45:31.

 What are the rank stars in Blacksmithing?

The recipes you have obtained will have a star on it (rank 1). You can have totally 3 stars (rank 3).
You get higher rank by finding the rank 2 (2 stars) and rank 3 (3 stars) recipes in the world.

The rank gives a benefit for that certain crafting. I´ve not comfirmed what it is yet. But for enchanting it required less materials to enchant and for alchemy you dont need to make healing pots in Dalaran alchemy station.
