The Mithril Order quest chain provided a blacksmith with the recipes they needed to complete the quest:

The quester learned 7 blacksmithing plans in the course of this chain, and gained two trinkets. The quester was not obligated to specialize in armorsmithing to start or complete this series of quests.

The Mithril Order Edit

Preamble Edit

An older smith in town (Orgrimmar for the Horde, Stormwind for the Alliance) offers to teach you something new.

Part one: Galvan the Ancient Edit

Alliance 15 [40] In Search of Galvan / Horde 15 [40] Booty Bay or Bust!

Hank the Hammer (or for the Horde, Ox) recognizes your achievement, and asks you to take a [Mithril Insignia] to McGavan in Booty Bay, at the southern end of Stranglethorn Vale.

This is, of course a test. Those not worthy of joining the Mithril Order will accept the insignia and not turn it over. But those who are worthy...

Neutral 15 [40] The Mithril Order

McGavan is happy to find another worthy of induction into the Order. And he knows where the smith Neutral 15 Galvan the Ancient is! He directs you to take a token to Galvan, to show that McGavan sent you.

Galvan, you are told, is deep in the wilds of Stranglethorn Vale[50.6, 20.5], between Zul Gurub and the Mosh'Ogg Ogre Mound.

Indeed, you find him there. And more, seeing the pendant, he wants to start your induction into the Mithril Order immediately!

Galvan the Ancient gives three quests (these may be completed in any order):

Neutral 15 [45] Smelt On, Smelt Off

Neutral 15 [45] The Great Silver Deceiver
Materials Required:
Neutral 15 [45] The Art of the Imbue

Complete any one of the above three quests, and Galvan will direct you to his finest pupil, Neutral 15 Trenton Lighthammer <The Mithril Order>, in Gadgetzan.

If you complete all three of these quests, Trenton rewards your dedication by offering you another trinket:
