Blacksmithing Guide for Season of Discovery (SoD) Phase 3

Blacksmithing Guide for Season of Discovery (SoD)

Phase 3 of Season of Discovery brings the skill cap for professions to 300, allowing players to max out all of their crafting and gathering skills. For the Blacksmithing profession, that means you’ll be able to hammer out almost any set of plans in the game, as well as a few new craftable items that have been added for this season.

Blacksmithing Leveling & Trainers

Check out our SoD Blacksmithing Leveling Guide for a step-by-step walkthrough for leveling the Blacksmithing profession, including trainer locations.

Learning Artisan Blacksmithing

From Phase 3 on, players will be able to level their professions all the way to 300 skill, or Artisan level – the maximum skill for Vanilla WoW.

Artisan Blacksmithing can only be learned from one specific trainer:

Blacksmithing Specialization

As well as learning the Artisan Blacksmithing skill, you’ll now be able to become either an Armorsmith or a Weaponsmith. These specializations each allow you to craft exclusive plans which you can see marked in the tables later in this guide.

For a complete walkthrough to completing the quests, check out our Blacksmithing Specialization Guide.

New Blacksmithing Plans for Season of Discovery

Several new recipes have been added to the Blacksmithing profession for Season of Discovery.

Phase 3 adds three new Bind-on-Pickup shoulder items to craft:

In Phase 2, there were also three brand new recipes for Season of Discovery:

There were three more Blacksmithing plans added to the game in Phase 1:

Phase 3 Blacksmithing Plans

Here are the best Blacksmithing plans you can craft in Phase 3 of Season of Discovery. We’ve left out anything that requires higher level content to learn or a level higher than 50 to equip. There are still quite a lot of plans left to collect in Phase 4!

The only really strong endgame pieces this phase are the three new shoulder items. There isn’t anything else that is really worth mentioning at this level, but we’ve listed all of the specialization exclusives so you can see what you’ll be able to make. While the Black Forge can be access inside Blackrock Depths, no one will be able to smelt Dark Iron yet, so any recipes that require them will have to wait until next phase. The plans for Dawn’s Edge (Axesmith exclusive) won’t be available until you can complete the quest in the Lower Blackrock Spire dungeon.

Pretty sure you can’t make the Truesilver Gauntlets as those require Armorsmith?
