Blacksmithing Guide 1-375
Hi, I was also blocked for mithril, specially for "Mithril Coif", next time please apply yourself when making a guide, really sad guide 🙁
Just a little suggestion for leveling from 260-270.
By 260, Mithril Coif (and Mitrhil Spurs too, I imagine) is green, where attempting to gain 10 skill points off a green item is quite difficult: I managed to get 5 skill points after creating only 5 Mithril Coifs, and thought, well, let's just continue. I ended up creating probably 15 more (150 Mithril Bars) to only get 2 skill points.
I did some research and despite not being able to learn Plans: Imperial Plate Bracers until 270 skill, you can learn Plans: Imperial Plate Belt from 265 skill (both quests become available from the NPC in Gadgetzan at 265).
So, in the interest of time, and gold if you're buying bars off the AH, I'd recommend to buy the plan for the belt at 265 and make those until 270 if you're having trouble with the Mitrhil Coif/Spurs.
Just a suggestion, hope this helps anyone struggling at this point.
