As a Blacksmith you will need loads of ore which can be mined from the veins that are scattered all across Azeroth and Outland. Taking these ores for your blacksmith career is definitely not an easy job since you still need to mine these ores, but if ever you want a strategy that will keep you from having loads of ores, then having mining as your second profession can definitely help you because you will do the mining yourself and you will no longer depend on auction for the stocks of your ores considering that their price in auction sales are way too expensive.

The good thing about learning how to blacksmith is that, you can create new and nice items. The first items that you will create are those weapons and armors. After quite some time of learning the basics in blacksmithing, you will eventually learn how to create better weapons and plate armor. If you happen to wonder what are plate armors are for, then they are the armor which are worn by Death Knights, Warrior and Paladins.
As time goes by, you will definitely hone your expertise when it comes to blacksmithing, and soon, you will tend to realize if ever you will specialize in Armor Blacksmith or Weapon Blacksmith. You are definitely free to choose whether to specialize in Armor Blacksmith or not, however, if you choose to do so, then you will have different access such as access to the different plans of a blacksmith in creating new and improved weapons.
