Haedrig Eamon (db) is an Artisan Blacksmith in Diablo 3. He is encountered in New Tristram, then joins the Caravan and serves as the game's Blacksmith, making weapons, armor and anything that is required for the hero during his or her travels throughout Sanctuary. He also salvages items into Materials that he can then use to fashion the items for you.

[edit] Salvaging

The blacksmith's salvage interface.

Salvaging is breaking down equipment into materials. All magic, rare, set, and legendary items can be salvaged, but not superior, normal, or inferior items. Every item is associated with one of the four difficulty levels, based on its item level, and yields materials based on that and its rarity.

The Blacksmith does this for free and he requires no training to do so.

  • A list of all materials can be seen on the Materials article.


[edit] Training

The Blacksmith can be trained up through 10 levels of proficiency. As he increases in skill he gains new titles and access to higher level plans to craft better items for your characters.

His appearance improves as well, with his wagons growing more elaborately-decorated, and more cool stuff appearing in his display.

Training the Blacksmith is not free; each level requires progressively more materials and gold.

[edit] Crafting

The Blacksmith is able to craft weapons and armour as long as you have the correct materials and enough gold. He needs to be trained to learn new plans and the higher level he is the better equipment he can create.

[edit] Appearance and Upgrades

Haedrig's wagon and general shop appearance changes, growing more shiny and impressive, as he is leveled up. Each of the Artisans in Diablo III has 10 levels to upgrade through.

Comparisons of the smithy at the first, second, and highest level of upgrades. (At the time of this image, there were only 5 Artisan levels. There are now 10, so the looks of each level now differ slightly.)

[edit] Lore/Backstory

Haedrig's quest.

Haedrig was a young husband and father in New Tristram, when the fiery Meteor crashed down through the Monastery. In the chaos and demonic uprising that followed, his wife and child were slain, then returned to half-life as hideous zombies. Brokenhearted over their undead fate, Haedrig beseeches the hero to find them and destroy them, putting their souls to rest. This will be done at the beginning of A Shattered Crown quest.


Once the deed is done, Haedrig agrees to use his blacksmithing skills to assist your hero in the battle against evil. Like the other important NPCs, Haedrig travels with the caravan throughout the entire game, and is present in town in each act.



[edit] Development History

During development, many of his talents were redistributed.

  • Haedrig initially socketed items. That talent was subsequently moved to the jeweler, before being removed from the game entirely.
  • Haedrig initially made all repairs. That talent was taken from him and distributed to the other NPC merchants. A Repairs tab was returned to Haedrig in Patch 1.0.4.
  • Haedrig was formerly the source of the Nephalem Cube (used to Salvage items) as a quest reward. That object was removed from the game in the big interface revisions of Beta Patch 10.
