IIRC, if you choose Duncan, then you get negative faction points for the Black Legion.

It's hard to say what implications that decision will actually have right now or if joining the black legion is even ideal for an elemental character. For now, it is better to base your decision on what is actually beneficial rather than what may or may not be. Besides, who's to say that you can't go into positive standing with a hostile faction?

The "real" end game will happen on the higher difficulties. If you are unhappy with your blacksmith, than you can unlock the other one on a higher difficulty. This will effectively give you access to both blacksmiths.

Most people play multiple characters. I'd say just pick the other smith on another guy so you have access to both.

This, the faction also sounds more like the melee faction, whereas the one introduced in the latest update sounds more like a caster faction...

Thank you! I was quiete mad at me for wasting the time spent on that character with a single click, but that actually is true... + my next character has to pick Duncan then, even though he will most likely be a soldier + dunno yet.

Your choice isn't that important, just pick the other guy with a different character. Recipes unlock for every character and you can transfer ingredients with the smuggler => access to every crafting bonus for everyone.

You can't transfer all ingredients. Items like scrap, aether crystals, etc are character bound.
