Armorsmiths benefit most from the Mining and Butchery gathering professions. Ore is required for both Chain and Plate armor. Hides from Butchery are only required to make leather for Chain armor, with wood gathered from Foraging being required for some shields.
Trainers and Recipe Vendors
An Armorsmithing trainer can only teach you recipes and profession levels up to his own level. This means a Novice Armorsmith NPC will be unable to teach you a recipe for which the Skilled Armorsmith profession grade is required.
Trainers can be found in the following locations:
- King's Retreat not sure if there anymore
Recipe Vendors can be found in the following locations:
Armorsmiths can break down a piece of armor into base materials using the Salvage Armor ability.
The targeted item must be of uncommon rarity or better.
For more details, see Salvaging.
