Best Armorsmithing Talent Builds in Dragonflight

The Armorsmithing tree has many efficiency gain talents and options for crafting armor and shields.

Due to the sheer around of sub-specializations available, it is impossible to point out any in specific. Your best option will generally be to evaluate the market before making a decision and try to focus on one type of armor at a time.

Notably, if you have the generalist Hammer Control tree maxed out, you will be able to craft the best version of every type of gear well before you max out their individual path, making it a strong option for players who want to minimize their point investment into the Armorsmithing tree.
