Blacksmithing

Blacksmithing is the ability that allows you to create your own armor from things found or purchased from merchants throughout the world. For every new type of weapons or armor you learn to make, you must spend 1 perk point, as well as reaching a required level in your Blacksmithing.

To begin, you are allowed to make Leather, Iron, Hide, Studded, and Imperial weapons and armour, as well as jewelry. As you level abilities you will be able to create much more. Light armor, such as Elven, Glass and even the fabled Dragonscale! For you heavy armor folks, you can create everything from Dwarven to Daedric, andc even Dragonplate.

You can improve each item, in addition to being able to create them. Upgrade weapons at grinding stones, and armor on workbenches. For each type of armor or weaponry you learn to make, you can then improve the item much more than you previously could.

You can also use smelters to turn ores (and for Dwemer, other items) into ingots for smithing, and use a tanning rock to create leather and leather strips from hides and pelts.

You can learn what items are necessary for the creation of any piece by entering the forge, finding the item you wish to make, and check the bar on the bottom of the screen. It will tell you what is required, how many, and how many you have. Or it will be greyed out if you don't have any.
