Weaponsmithing is a Crafting Trade Skill in New World. Weaponsmithing allows for the crafting of Melee Weapons used in close combat such as Swords, Rapiers, War Hammers, Great Axes and Shields. Trade Skills are a variety of non-combat skills that the player can invest in and master. Trade Skills belonging to the Crafting category focus on creating a large variety of items ranging from Weapons and Consumables to ammunition and furniture.
Weaponsmithing is the Crafting skill focused on creating Melee Weapons by using resources and materials obtained from skills in the Gathering and Refining lines. A higher level in Weaponsmithing will allow players to create better, more powerful weapons, as well as improving the Gear Score range of craftable weapons.
Weaponsmithing is performed at a Forge which can often be found in Settlements. Forges have a Tier level which can be increased by taking on Town Projects. Note that each weapon has a tier level requirement in order to craft. This tier level corresponds to the Forge’s tier level. If your settlement’s Forge level does not meet the requirement, you will need to either raise it or find another settlement with a Forge of a higher tier. Crafting weapons requires the player to be of the appropriate Weaponsmithing level as well. Leveling up in Weaponsmithing is a straightforward process. Players simply need to continuously craft weapons raise their level in the skill. Collecting resources, however, is more involved and can prove more difficult

Weaponsmithing Weapon Perks
While Crafting a Weapon, it has a small chance of gaining one or more Perks or an Empty Gem Socket. While these outcomes are random, players can use the special resource Azoth during the crafting process to improve the chances of getting perks, a socket or both. Additionally, there are a number of special materials that can be gathered in the world that, when used during the crafting process, can dictate what Perk is added to the weapon. However, there are still no guarantees that a Perk or Gem Socket will indeed be added to the piece of equipment but the chance increases as the Crafting skill level increases.
