How to Unlock the Blacksmith

Unlocking the Blacksmith in the game is possible right from the beginning, specifically during the "Find the Sleeping Survivor" quest. To locate the Blacksmith's Ancient Vault, head just northwest of your base across the broken bridge. Once you've discovered him, use the Summoning Staff to bring him to your base. Ensure that you place him under a roof so he counts as being "sheltered."
