FFXIV - Disciples of Hand - Blacksmith
It is in the fires and on the anvils of Eorzea's blacksmiths that weapons and tools of metal are crafted. Their work is in demand at all times in nearly every location, whether it be hammering the blade of a sword at the forge, or whetting the edge of an axe at camp.

The tradition itself stretches back to the realm’s Age of Bronze, though the advanced metallurgical techniques passed on from master to apprentice today bear little resemblance to the simple practices of ancient times. The relatively recent birth of firearms has created an entirely new area of expertise which is being adopted with fervor by many ambitious members of the guild. The primary tool of the blacksmith is the cross-pein hammer.

Below is a list of abilities for the Blacksmith class up to level 50. All of the Blacksmith's abilities use 0 MP or TP and have 0 cast time.



Actions


Actions are skills that the Blacksmith can equip to their bar and select to use at any time as long as their timer is available. Actions used in a combo will generate additional damage and effects. All Blacksmith actions are exclusive to that job.

As some of the better DoH actions are not exclusive to any specific class it is worth levelling up other DoH classes so that you can get better actions.
