The Smelter plays a vital role in improving your metal output by increasing the yield of mines in its host city. Not only can the Smelter be enhanced further to improve this aspect, but it also hosts supply research which increases the logistical support available to your troops in the field.

The Jin can construct Smelters without requiring any Technological upgrades, making them highly efficient in the accumulation of resources from the early game, while the Dian will receive Metallurgy upgrades for free uponobtaining the prerequisite technologies and upgrades for them.
