This quest starts the alliance version of the Mithril Order quest chain series of quests.

Pre-Requisites Edit

Blacksmithing skill of 210 or greater.

Objectives Edit

Bring six [Golden Scale Bracers] to Hank the Hammer in Stormwind.

Quest text Edit

When I was about your age, a dwarf by the name of Galvan took me under his wing and trained me in the ways of the armorsmith. Before he left for Booty Bay, he made me promise to train all those with the desire and determination to advance in the craft of blacksmithing -- so here I am -- all these years later.

So, now it's time for you to learn a little something. Make me six golden scale bracers and you will learn where smithing comes from, <name>.

Progress Edit

Could you be the next Galvan protege?

Completion Edit

Very good, <name>! Listen and learn.

Blacksmithing never comes from here! <Hank points to his hammer.>

Blacksmithing never comes from here! <Hank points to the anvil.>

Blacksmithing only comes from here! <Hank points to his heart.>

And now you know the origin of blacksmithing.

Reward Edit

You will be rewarded with all of the following:

Notes Edit

The reward recipe is tradable, if you don't care to learn these plans yourself. This is, though, the only source for this recipe.
