Blacksmith Writs are available to anyone who completes the Blacksmith Certification quest. The quest can be picked off from the Equipment Crafting Writs boards once per day.

If Coldharbour nor Craglorn area hasn't been visited the quest level is capped at five[verification needed — Is this still true?], thus Ebony is the highest level. Visiting Coldharbour enables level 6 quests and rewards and visiting Craglorn unlocks all levels.


The items needed will always be a mix of weapons and armor, in any of three different combinations.

  • 1 helm, 1 dagger and 1 pauldron
  • 1 cuirass, 1 sword and 1 greaves
  • 1 greatsword, 1 sabatons and 1 gauntlets

The material needed to craft is dependent on the characters rank in the appropriate skill and also defines the level of the reward received.

Once you have completed the writ, you can head to the nearest item depot to deliver the goods:

<The crate contains ample space for deliveries, and a sheaf of manifest papers.>
<Place the goods within the crate.>
