Revo-Classic Blacksmith Guide



Blacksmiths are based off raw physical power, and even have the highest melee damage among the other 2nd classes. A Battle Blacksmith's main skills revolve around the theme of self-buffing to increase damage, whilst a weapon forger focuses on forging stats and skills for an easy zeny.

Start off with this map if you're looking for easy levels. • If you're taking it easy and don't want to spend for potions, you can start with byalan 3 then go deeper as you level. • Pyramids offer great exp with great drops. Just be careful if you're low level, minorous casts hammerfall and heaven's drive which can lead to your death once it hits. • Another great spot is at pyramids level 4. Here, you can kill Isis, Matyrs, Mimic, and Mummy, all of which drops useful items. • Alarms drop clip[1] which is a valuable equipment. You can hunt here if you have enough Def, HP, or flee since monsters here are aggressive and can mob you. There are also high orcs on the pink indicator.
