Leveling up Blacksmithing can be a quick affair if you have the assistance of a fellow crafter.

Deconstruction always grants more inspiration than creation and yields materials. Items made by another player gives the most inspiration, enhanced with higher level items, better item quality, with the presence of traits such as "Intricate" items.

  1. Find a crafting partner who is near your crafting level.
  2. Each partner creates daggers for the maximum level as possible in the following progression: 4, 16, 26, 36, 46, Champion: 10, 40, 80, 100
  3. Trade the items to each other.
  4. Deconstruct the daggers made by the other person.

You may also craft writs to not only obtain experience, but also gain special tempers and other items.
