Blacksmith Guide

The blacksmith allows the player to repair and forge weapons.

Overview

The Garreg Mach blacksmith sets up her shop in the marketplace. Once you complete the "Forge the Way" quest in Chapter 5, her services will be available both while exploring the monastery and during the battle preparation screen. There is also a secondary blacksmith in the Abyss (Cindered Shadows DLC) with all the same capabilities as the one in the monastery.

Ores

All weapons need Ores to be forged or repaired.

Obtaining Ores

Throughout the game, the player will get the chance to obtain various Ores. In order to forge and/or repair any weapon, you need to obtain the required Ores. In general, Ores can be obtained in the following ways.

  • Purchasing from the Eastern/Western/Shady Merchant
  • Quest rewards
  • Group assignments
  • Scattered across Garreg Mach during the Explore Phase
  • Breaking all barriers of a Demonic Beast

The following table lists all of the Ores in the game, along with where to find them.

Forging

Weapons can be forged at the blacksmith to increase their effectiveness.

Forging Weapons

Most weapons can be forged into stronger versions of themselves, or sometimes into entirely different weapons. Forging a weapon will also repair it to full uses. The cost of forging a weapon is the same regardless of how damaged (or even broken) the original weapon was. Hence, it is recommended to forge your most used weapons, assuming you have multiples.

Forging always increases the durability of the weapon, and will usually increase some of the combat stats, such as Might, Hit, Crit, etc. Especially in the higher difficulties, good weapons can make all the difference, so it is recommended to forge your weapons as soon as possible to optimize your combat. Forging cheaper weapons is also pretty cheap, since most only require Smithing Stones which can be purchased at the Western Merchant at any time.

Rusted Weapons

While playing through the story, the player will encounter various rusted weapons. These weapons can be forged into a number of different things, the details of which can be seen on the description of the weapon. In general, rusted weapons can forge into the Iron, Steel, and Silver versions of themselves, the Brave version (except gauntlets), as well a "rare" version (also except gauntlets). You can view this data on each rusted weapon's page.

Repairing

Broken and damaged weapons can be repaired at the blacksmith to restore full durability.

Repairing Weapons

Weapons can be repaired at any time while exploring the monastery or during the battle preparation screen. It costs exactly half of the weapon's buying gold to repair a weapon to full durability. Repairing a broken weapon, a heavily used one, and an almost brand new one all cost the exact same, so it's recommended to wait as long as possible before repairing your weapons.

Forged weapons can also be repaired, but it it will be significantly more costly, both in materials and gold.

Cost of Repairing Weapons

The table below lists the Ore and gold costs of repairing every weapon in the game (excluding Sword of the Creator). This information can also been seen on any weapon's page.
