I'm highly impressed with the details. The efforts in creating this game is greatly shown. This game is totally worth a try if you're into running around and destroying massive amounts of people. Battle of Supremacy - FOR..THE..WIN. I love the fact that you can use pretty much any weapon on any character. Of course, there are limits on who can use what weapon very well vs. cannot wield.
The smithing skill can be bought by 3 characters only in the skills menu of the character.
and Guo Huai.
The blacksmith in town has nothing to do with the Smith skill. The blacksmith simply unlocks the seal on the weapon given over a period of time. The Smith skill is needed to buy the stronger weapons on the other hand. These weapons can only be bought by the 3 people mentioned above.
I was confused for a long time about this, so I hope this clears it up for whoever's suffering the same confusion I had.
I'm very critical when it comes to games; this one is 10/10. I buy very few games ever. I will be buying this one for sure. It's worth the money. Plenty to do. In depth story mode as well.
