Prerequisites: Main Building level 3, Academy level 1

The weapons and armour of your warriors are enhanced in the smithy's melting furnaces. By increasing its level, you can order the fabrication of even better weapons and armour.

An upgrade done to a unit counts for all units of that type in the village the upgrade is done. This means an upgrade done in village A does not count for troops coming from village B.

The bonus added by upgrading a unit is estimated to be 1.5% (factor 1.015). This means a unit's defence or attack worth is base_worth*1.015^smithy_level.  The example calculations below are based on this estimate.

The more precise calculation is as follows: improved_value = BASE_VALUE + (BASE_VALUE + 300 · UPKEEP / 7) · (1.007^LEVEL – 1)

Example for Defence-Upgrade
The Gallic Phalanx for example has 40 defence versus infantry and 50 defence versus cavalry by default. By upgrading the Phalanx's in the Smithy you get these results:

Smithy upgrade level Infantry defense Cavalry defense
0 40 50
1 40.6 (40*1.015^1) 50.75 (50*1.015^1)
2 41.2 (40*1.015^2) 51.5 (50*1.015^2)
x ? (40*1.015^x) ? (50*1.015^x)

Example for Attack-Upgrade
The Roman Imperian for example has a default attack worth of 70. By upgrading the Imperian's in the Smithy you get these results:

Smithy upgrade level Attack worth
0 70
1 71.1 (70*1.015^1)
2 72.1 (70*1.015^2)
x ? (70*1.015^x)

The level dependent attributes (such as construction costs and generated culture points) can be found here.
