The Weapon smithy is an Occidental Production building that produces Weapons from Iron. Weapons are used to build certain ships and military units. Weapons are also a great source of income when sold. Upon unlocking Patricians, Weapons can replace Ropes as the main export product. It is generally beneficial to create a Weapons production chain for all unused Ore deposits and sell the production surplus for profit.
