This article contains lore or information taken from Warcraft: Orcs & Humans and/or its manual.

As the metalworker of the town, he is responsible for the grade and quality of the steel used in your weapons and armor. If funds are devoted to the refining of his craft, he can upgrade the materials and skills used, allowing the creation of better swords and shields. His talents are also sought after in the construction of specific goods and building materials that are essential to other professions.[1]

Information

Blacksmiths are used to upgrade the attack and armor of most of your units. They are also required to build Knights and Towers.

Notes

The Warcraft: Orcs & Humans Insider's Guide correctly specifies that Shield upgrades apply to all units and buildings, but incorrectly claims that Sword upgrades provide bonuses only to Footmen, Knights and Lothar, when they in fact apply to all your attack-capable units except Archers and Catapults. It also incorrectly states that Sword upgrades increase Minimum damage, when they do not.
