Alliance: Stormwind City

You mean you can't smell the smoke of the Dwarven forges from here? Well, you will be looking for Therum Deepforge if you want to learn blacksmithing. He's over in the Dwarven District which is just to the north of the Cathedral Square. He is found near the middle of the district, underneath a tent.

Alliance: Ironforge

Ye've come to the right place lass! People come here from all o'er the world to train to be a blacksmith. Ye'll find Bengus Deepforge hammering away at an anvil in the middle of our fine city by The Great Forge itself.

Alliance: The Exodar

  • Miall is our chief Blacksmith on the Exodar. She can be found on the lower level of the Trader's Tier. Go with the Light.

  • James Van Brunt runs a decent forge in the War Quarter. He's on the inner ring.

Horde: Silvermoon City

  • Bemarrin teacher the trade of blacksmithing in Farstriders' Square. While a somewhat... dirty trade, I suppose it has its merits.
