If you happen to wonder what are plate armors are for, then they are the armor which are worn by Death Knights, Warrior and Paladins.
As time goes by, you will definitely hone your expertise when it comes to blacksmithing, and soon, you will tend to realize if ever you will specialize in Armor Blacksmith or Weapon Blacksmith. You are definitely free to choose whether to specialize in Armor Blacksmith or not, however, if you choose to do so, then you will have different access such as access to the different plans of a blacksmith in creating new and improved weapons. If you do specialize in Weaponry or Armor you will be able to learn several patterns that teach you how to create several rare items. The choice isn’t that heavy though because you will still be able to create most of the good stuff that the Blacksmithing profession offers you anyway.
