Journal detail hr1 07.png NPCs Involved

  • Randwulf wishes you to reaffirm your desire to join the Blacksmiths' Guild.
  • You have been referred to Brithael, forgemaster of the Blacksmiths' Guild. Seek him out and pray that you meet with his approval.
  • Despite knowing next to nothing about you, Forgemaster Brithael has already marked you as a promising recruit. To begin your training as a blacksmith, equip the hammer the forgemaster gave you and speak to him again.

'Bout time Randwulf sent me a new recruit! Ahhh, it's been too long... Ahem. I'm Brithael, forgemaster o' the Blacksmiths' Guild.

If yer aimin' to become a smitty worth the name, 'twould be my great pleasure to educate ye on the finer points o' the craft.

Oh, the rest o' these sour-faced bastards'll tell ye it's hard, gruelin' work fit only fer the best an' brightest, but I say put a hammer in the hands o' the willin' an' see what happens!

What d'ye say then, lad? Will ye swing a hammer fer ol' Brithael?
Swing a hammer for ol' Brithael?



Ha ha! I knew I liked ye the moment I set eyes on What did ye say yer name was again?

Forename Surname! A name fit fer a hero if ever I heard one! In fact, I reckon I did hear it in a bard's song once! ...Or was it that poor sod cursin' in his cups at the Wench?

Bah! Don't matter if it was savin' the world or beddin' someone's mother─'tis time to forge yerself a new reputation, pound out a new legend! An' ye can trust ol' Brithael to help ye do it!

But there I go, puttin' the cart before the chocobo. Here, lad─take this cross-pein hammer. A smitty without a hammer is like me without a drink─bloody useless!

Well, don't jus' stand there gawpin' at her. Take her in yer hands, have a few practice swings, whatever ye fancy! She's all yours now.

Ah, what I wouldn't give to be you right now, lad. A smitty never forgets his first hammer... <sniff>
Quest Completed
Say it ain't so, lad! You an' me, we'd get on right as rain, we would! I beg ye reconsider...
