While jobbing, blacksmiths can now recieve special orders, which will ask you to make a certain amount of a particular item (of specified material and quality). The chance you will recieve a special order is roughly one in four.
A few notes about special orders:
- You can only recieve a special order once every six hours, unless you finish your previous one
- You must use your own materials to make the items
- You can return the Special order slips to any vendor, but recieve more gold if you return it to the one who gave it to you
