Common Problems

  • Can you still specialize in a Blacksmithing trade?
  • I am not getting the option to pick a specialty in Classic WOW

For modern WoW, blacksmithing specializations (Armorsmith/Weaponsmith) were removed in patch 4.0.1. In Classic WoW, these specializations still exist. Once your character has reached level 40 and has a Blacksmithing skill of 200, you can speak to an artisan blacksmith for dialogue options to choose a specialization. Alliance blacksmiths will need to speak to Bengus Deepforge in Ironforge's Great Forge area. For Horde players, the NPC is Krathok Moltenfist in the Valley of Honor in Orgrimmar.
