It is in the fires and on the anvils of Eorzea's blacksmiths that weapons and tools of metal are crafted. Their work is in demand at all times in nearly every location, whether it be hammering the blade of a sword at the forge, or whetting the edge of an axe at camp.
The tradition itself stretches back to the realm's Age of Bronze, though the advanced metallurgical techniques passed on from master to apprentice 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 members of the guild.
Blacksmiths can construct metallic arms and tools used by many of classes in Final Fantasy XIV (including themselves). Being metallurgists, they can also smelt ingots and shape them into components used by other Disciples of the Hand.
Blacksmiths are defined by wielding a cross-pein hammer in the main hand, and can equip a file to the off-hand.
