Guide to Blacksmith in Clash of Clans

Blacksmith is a building in Clash of Clans that becomes available starting from Town Hall 8. You can primarily employ it for the purpose of unlocking and upgrading the different Hero Equipment. Essentially, Hero Equipment is a special item that you can equip on the different Heroes to alter their abilities.

As you climb through the different levels of the Blacksmith, new Hero Equipment will be handed to you. Furthermore, you will be able to increase the levels of the equipment.

In line with the building, a new resource named “Ores” was also added. The Ores are further divided into the following three categories:

  • Shiny Ore: These are used to level up all the Common and Epic Hero Equipment.
  • Glowy Ore: The Glowy Ore are the second category, and you may employ them to upgrade key levels of the Hero Equipment.
  • Starry Ore: This Ore is the topmost kind of Ore, and you will need it to take the Hero Equipment beyond a certain level.

Increasing the level of the Blacksmith will enable you to hold a higher amount of these Ores inside Clash of Clans.
