XIV

Ours is a trade born o' blood and brine. Fer as long as pirates have sailed the Rhotano, smitties have forged their weapons and fitted out their ships from keel to cannon.
—Randwulf

The Blacksmith (鍛冶師, Kaji Shi?) is a Disciple of the Hand in Final Fantasy XIV.

OverviewEdit

It is in the fires and on the anvils of blacksmiths that weapons and tools of metal are crafted. Their work is in demand far and wide, whether it be hammering the blade of a sword at the forge, or whetting the edge of an axe at camp. Limsa Lominsa has been renowned for its blacksmithing tradition since antiquity, though the advanced metallurgical techniques passed on today bear little resemblance to the simple practices of ancient times. The relatively recent birth of firearms has created an entirely new area of expertise which is being adopted with fervor by many ambitious smiths.
—Lodestone

Blacksmiths can construct metallic arms and tools used by almost all of the classes in the game (including themselves). Being metallurgists, they can also smelt ingots and shape them into components used by other Disciples of the Hand.
