Summary[edit | edit source]

The Artisan
You want to learn more about weaponsmithing? It'll be a long process, but if you and your hirelings succeed, every soul on the Sword Coast will be looking to buy your wares.

First I need to see the starting line, bring me a hundred [Adamantine Ingot +1].

What, I said this was going to be time consuming didn't I? Consistency is paramount, bring the materials and we'll go from there.

After turning in first materials:

The Artisan
Back already? I admit, I was hoping such a daunting task might drive you away... I seem to attract the most stubborn sort of people... No matter, where were we?

Ah yes, not bad, Adventurer, the temper on these blades is first rate, they're quite sturdy. I can see you've earned your reputation. Don't get your head in the clouds though, you've still got a long way to go.

Regardless, this should cover The Steward's orders for the next few months. What, you didn't think I'd get nothing out of this for myself, did you?

For your next task, I want you to pour your heart into a finished product, three finished products to be precise. Bring me a [Adamantine Knightly Sword +1], a [Adamantine Claymore +1], and a [Adamantine Hatchet +1].

We'll talk again when you have those items.

Completion[edit | edit source]

The Artisan
The attention to detail? Superb. The construction? Formidable. The underlying materials, however, leave something to be desired. You no doubt began with the purest samples of adamantine ore and the straightest pieces of ebony lumber, but therein lies the problem. It is not always the purest metal or the straightest lumber that will yield the best result.

In fact, it is often the very impurities themselves that will help shape a material into the sharpest edge or the strongest limb. The right tool for the right job doesn't hurt either.

You've earned this striker's sledge, it's served me for many years. Now let's see what your smiths can do with it.
