Bannerlord Endurance Perks: Smithing

The Smithing perk tree is one of the most useful in terms of the dramatic ways in which it changes the process of crafting in Bannerlord. Most of the early perks allow you to refine materials more efficiently. This is particularly useful when you consider that refining materials provides the most amount of experience in exchange for stamina use. If you don’t mind the refinement process being more laborious than it needs to be, you can choose to dramatically increase the learning rate of new part designs instead. The higher level perks are focused on improving your stamina when smithing and your ability to craft better weapons.
