Crafting various weapons is part of an adventure RPG like Witcher 3. Crafting allows players to make weapons that are usually hard to find. Some weapons and armor can only be crafted making Blacksmiths and armorers quite important in The Witcher 3. Luckily, Witcher 3 offers a lot of options to the players when it comes to Blacksmiths. They can be found in all the major cities and towns of the game.
Before we share The Witcher 3 Blacksmith locations with you, let’s quickly have a look at the level system of these weapon makers. The blacksmith’s level determines what items they can craft according to the tier. There are four levels of blacksmiths, and here’s what each tier can handle for crafting:
|Can craft upto
|Complete Witcher gear weapons upto Superior tier.
|Mastercrafted witcher gear weapons
|Grandmaster witcher gear weapons
