Learning Blade Making
Prequest: Making a Metal Stock
Required: 2 Steel Stock, 1 Leather Knife Handle.
→ Go to Harnquist
YOU: Can you tell me how to make blades?
Harnquist: Blade making is a valuable trade skill.
Harnquist: Are you sure you are willing to put in the effort to learn?
YOU: Yes, I really want to learn.
Harnquist: Good, I can teach you how to make some simple knives and swords.
Harnquist: As we covered previously, everything starts with raw materials.
Harnquist: Bring me two pieces of steel stock and I will teach you more.
→ Give Harnquist 2 Steel Stock
YOU: Here is your steel stock, I stacked it together as the quality is the same.
Harnquist: Ah, good.
Harnquist: It is important that you find a good source of steel stock.
Harnquist: Once you start making swords, you will probably not want to spend your time mining or refining ore.
Harnquist: The first step is to acquire the proper skills.
Harnquist: To make a knife or a sword, you need both blacksmith and the blade making skill.
Harnquist: You will also need a special book that I can give you.
Harnquist: Before teaching you any more, I need to know if you are serious about being a blade smith.
Harnquist: If so, find a leather knife handle for me and bring it here.
→ Give Harnquist 1 Leather Knife Handle
YOU: [You give Harnquist the knife handle.] Umm, but you sell them.
- Harnquist smiles.
Harnquist: Now you are catching on.
Harnquist: The lesson there is figure out what parts you need to make, and which you need to buy, then find out where you need to buy them.
Harnquist: Not all smiths or merchants sell everything.
Harnquist: I have a couple of different parts for sale, like the leather knife handle.
Harnquist: Trasok, Gardr, or Kethzun also sell related items.
Harnquist: Between us, you should be able to stock up on everything you'll need.
YOU: I see. So what can I make?
Harnquist: Good, that's where the book comes in.
Harnquist: It will tell you what you need.
Harnquist: This is what you need to do.
Harnquist: You use different quantities to make different items.
Harnquist: Get some more steel stock and heat it up in the forge.
Harnquist: When making a blade, hammer it into shape using a hammer at an anvil.
Harnquist: Heat it again and quench it in the tank.
Harnquist: Sharpen it with the sharpening stone, combine it with a handle and you are done crafting a very basic version of a weapon.
Harnquist: Do not forget to experiment, and be sure to learn the needed skills from me before trying to make any weapons.
Harnquist: I should also mention, blade making applies to knives, swords, -and- axes...basically, anything with a blade.
Harnquist: This book, called the Book of Blades, will guide you through making swords like shortswords, longswords, sabres, and claymores, along with knives and daggers.
Harnquist: For axes, you'll need to see Trasok over in Ojaveda.
Harnquist: I don't have a book for broadswords, but I have seen them around.
Harnquist: You may have to get winch access and a good amount of skill to progress that far.
Harnquist: Till then, keep checking with myself and Trasok to train and progress.
- Harnquist hands you a book.
Harnquist: Good luck.
