Salvage Blow When user initiates battle and defeats the enemy, there is a Luck % chance they will “salvage” a katana, naginata, club, yumi, or shuriken.
Lancebreaker If the enemy is equipped with a naginata/lance, Hit+50 and Avoid+50

The Blacksmith is again, similar to the Oni Chieftain, exclusive to the Oni Savage class line. Which makes it difficult to obtain since there are very few characters that can become an Oni Savage. Thankfully, the Blacksmith is very much a missable class, save for one skill: Lancebreaker . Similar to the “-faire” skills, the “-breaker” skills are well worth your time to collect if you can. It won’t show up in the damage but it will certainly show up in how everything misses you if you have the proper “-breaker” skills equipped. There is a breaker skill associated with each weapon class.

The Blacksmith has lower magic than the Oni Chieftain and thus has higher Skill and is bulkier. Otherwise, the two classes are very similar and both use clubs/axes.
