'It looks as though you have strayed a little ways from home, Elf, and you want to learn the art of working metal?

'It seems, then, that you have come to the right place.

'You want to speak with Anorthint by the forge. He will be able to set you upon the path of the metalsmithing.'


Metalsmiths provide armour and tools to the peoples of Middle-earth. Becoming a metalsmith can be difficult, but the wares that they provide are a necessity throughout the world.

Be careful! You will need to complete the correct recipes and deliver the correct items outlined in this quest.
