Smelt On, Smelt Off is part of the Mithril Order quest chain, which allows blacksmiths to specialize in Armorsmithing.


Bring forty Mithril Bars and forty Iron Bars to Galvan the Ancient in Stranglethorn.


Many blacksmiths believe that mining and smithing are separate, independent jobs; but can there be blacksmithing without mining? Ah ha -- it is an impossibility! The accomplished blacksmith must also be an accomplished miner.

Show Galvan that you are capable, <name>. Bring me forty bars of iron and forty bars of mithril. For this, Galvan will teach you the ways of the ornate mithril pants!



After such mining, your muscles bulge and your body aches!


Your work ethic is impeccable, <name>! You are starting to understand the ways of Galvan mineralogy! Take this and learn from it all that you can.
