During last night's Onyxia raid, we had the recipe for https://classic.wowhead.com/item=12640/lionheart-helm drop.

After a lot of thought, and a discussion with the Loot Council, it was agreed that I would drop Mining (which I have been struggling with as a Holy Paladin - gathering professions are not good for this class!) and level up Blacksmithing, specialising in Armorsmithing, so that I could learn this pattern myself. It is such a strong and important item that we want to ensure it will stay within the guild, always be available, and can be crafted for our members who supply the materials free of charge.

The materials required are as follows:

80 x Thorium Bar
12 x Arcanite Bar
40 x Wicked Claw
10 x Blue Sapphire
4 x Azerothian Diamond

I aim to have Blacksmithing to level 300 very soon, and to have completed the quests for the Armorsmithing specialisation so that we can get the ball rolling on this, certainly within the next day or two. I am already at 225 with the only thing stopping me being the lack of Steel Bars on the auction house!

So everyone out there who wants this awesome helm, get farming those mats and it will be my pleasure to craft this item for you.

Ok, a progress report... I am at 225 Blacksmithing, with ~350 gold spent so far (I have some bids in on the AH now which may or may not come through), and have looked at what I need to craft to get to 300 and also what is required for the Armoursmithing quests. It's quite a lot!

These are roughly the total materials I will need, assuming I am not terribly unlucky with skill-ups:

MaterialTotal RequiredCurrently HaveStill Need
Steel Bar (Iron)1701700
Heavy Grinding Stone12120
Solid Stone6046040
Mithril Bar4264260
Iron Bar40400

Thorium Bar7107100

Aquamarine770
Citrine440
Truesilver Bar24240
Thick Leather16160
Mageweave Cloth660
Black Pearl440
Heart of Fire110

So, a lot more than I realised at first. If you have anything that I still need, please COD me and I will try to keep this list fairly updated as I go. Thanks for any help!

Well done on the profession and taking on the responsibility, the guild and probably all the server (Alliance at least) thanks you.
