5.9.7 Trade Skill - Metalworking
The arts of a Metalworker allow them to craft a wide array of items, such as plaques, beds and glasses, using simple components to create works of art. Those who also have a smithing profession will even be able to customise the appearance of smithed items! To join the illustrious profession of the Metalworkers, you will need to locate a Metalworking office in one of the cities or councils, and BUY METALWORKING PERMIT. There will be a charge of 100 credits, at which point you will become a Metalworker! You will then gain the basic abilities of your craft, although you will need to find a tutor to teach you the finer arts of Metalworking. - PATTERN LIST METALWORKING: To see all the patterns available to you.
