Blacksmithing is a very useful skill for a two main reasons. High level blacksmiths are able to forge armour and weapons and to maintain them without having to expend any additional resources. Most fighters, rangers and rogues practice blacksmithing for this reason. Other classes may decide to learn this trade skill in order to sell their wares to other players or to the Oberin shops, making large amounts of money by doing so.
As with all trade skills any character class can practice blacksmithing to the highest levels.
In order to practice blacksmithing you must have a blacksmith hammer and be standing next to a forge. All blacksmithing requires ferrite which has been smelted into ingots, and some items may require boards or packs of nails.
If you have twice the skill required to craft an item you will create a Grand Master or GM item. GM items are superior to their normal counterparts.
