Blacksmiths are Merchant NPCs in the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Blacksmiths are NPCs that provide services specific to Weapons and Equipment in order to improve them or modify them. This is different from the Armorer who provides similar services, but specialize in Armor. In order to make specific modifications or dismantle equipment, players will need to locate the closest Blacksmith. A Blacksmith will also have the ability to craft weapons and repair damaged equipment. Each Blacksmith will have a level or degree of services depending on their ranking. There are different ranks of Blacksmiths in the Witcher 3, and players will need the very highest ones to create the best gear. Below is a list of Blacksmiths and their ranks and locations. Players can look into Blacksmithing for all available Blacksmith Crafting options and requirements. 

Blacksmith Services Witcher 3

Upon encountering a Blacksmith in Witcher 3, you will be prompted with a few dialogue options. You could ask him to show his wares, craft something or sometimes play gwent. The Crafting menu will bring up all craftable weapons that have completed crafting components. This page will sort them out according to the type of Weapon and will display which Crafting Components you own or are missing. Crafting Components that are missing will have a note in red instead of green. 

  • Crafting Weapons

Crafting Weapons will have some requirements including a required level used to craft gear and items. They will also need to meet the Craftsman requirements. Finally, the price for the job will be displayed on the bottom of the screen above the confirmation to begin crafting. If all crafting components are complete and the requirements have been met, then you can finally request to 'Craft Item.' You might have return to him to retrieve your sword when it is ready. You will then have a third dialogue option to ask if your sword is ready.
