Levelling to 25.
Get wood, you need 100 timber about to make 40 wood.
Do your quests to get tools.
If you don't have 40 leather off the goblins buy 10-20 for 40-80g off the merchent.
Now go make 40 shields.
Levelling to 50
Getting to 50 needs considerable amounts of iron wood and leather and gold. 10g 1 ingot wood and leather. Make 200 of them (am assuming 200 shields), and you have 50 skill.
Also to speed things up... when do your quests, mark metal nodes with /annontation_add metal. This why you wont waste time finding the next node.
When mining in an dangerous area, never mine past half stamina. Take 2-3 swings and look around. DO NOT GET TUNNEL VISION ON THE NODE.
These tips will help you get to 50 and to scale in armorsmithing quickly.
