Smithing and Tailoring
Smithing weapons and tailoring armor increases the effectiveness and value of the item while reducing the weight. Smithed or tailored items also require a higher insight to wear or wield than the plain counterpart.
Smithed weapons may be found while hunting, or a regular sword, soori dagger, or surigam may be smithed by an aisling rogue. A rogue with higher level of Bladesmith (found by looking at her legend) has a better chance of getting higher quality items. Rogues or warriors may assist a bladesmith to help increase the quality.
A rogue, monk, or warrior who has learned the tailor skill may tailor armor. An aisling's legend reveals his Tailor level. An aisling with a higher level of tailor has a greater chance of making higher quality items. Another tailor may assist in tailoring to raise the quality of the armor.
There are four grades of smithing/tailoring, in order from lowest to highest quality, good, fine, grand, and great.
