Okay, those are all the quests that you need to complete for leveling up your Blacksmithing up to level 50+.

Before you go on completing the quest, there are some points that you need to notice, here they are:

    • Each listing assumes that you’ve achieved the required level with no experience past 0. You should be moving forward, since you will rarely be at 0 XP when you achieve a level.
    • Repeatable/ Charity/ triple turn-in levels will be noted with asterisks beside their experience numbers. Those listings assume that you intend to make full use of those levels and turn in the requirements all three times. Hence, their listed XP numbers are three times the base plus bonuses on HQ turn-ins.
    • You must be 100% honest. It’s highly recommended for you to avoid level until level 20.
    • If you’re searching for mass-levelling, it’s better for you to use repeatables/ triples. To get the shorter bursts, Ingenuity is probably better to suit your budget.
