Scenes Blacksmith

Blacksmiths (and in some cases armourers) can forge new swords from pieces of meteorite ore, or brand silver swords with mystical runes to enhance their statistics. They also occasionally make, sell or buy an amazing variety of other goods.

Known Blacksmiths Edit

Mechanics Edit

Game Interaction icon forge

  • Speak with a blacksmith (or swordsmith, or occasionally armourer).
  • Left-click the "forge" icon, then "buy" the desired sword from the blacksmith's wares. If you have only three pieces of ore, or three runes, then only one sword will appear; however, if you have more, then all the possible combinations — up to 10 — will appear.

You need at least three pieces of meteorite to forge a new steel sword. Blacksmiths can also burn runes into your silver sword. You need at least three runes to have them branded into a blade.

Some players find it strange that the screen is the same as the buy/sell screen, but this should not be a concern, it is indeed the reforging screen. Essentially, you trade in your three pieces of meteorite or your three runes for a new sword.

Note that due to an exploitable game mechanic, it is possible to keep your meteorite pieces. To do this, open the forging screen, drop all your meteorites, and buy the meteorite sword you want. Remember to pick the meteorites up again before leaving the area!

Notes Edit

Tutorial blacksmiths
You can also make other transactions in the "Forge" screen, like buying and selling items.
Order armorer:
  • Chapter I
    • If you didn't sell Haren Brogg's goods to the Scoia'tael (killed them) during Strangers in the Night in Chapter I, the armorer will deal with you at the beginning of Chapter II.
      • If you sold / gave them to the Scoia'tael, he won't.
  • Chapter II
    • If you worked with Siegfried in the sewers, then he will deal with you at the beginning of Chapter II but only if you didn't help the Scoia'tael in Chapter I.
    • Will make a lightning rod for The Sentry quest, despite not being called a blacksmith, but he charges 70 Items Oren, which is 20 Items Oren more than his dwarven competitor - Malcolm Stein.
    • If you clear Vivaldi of suspicion, he will stop dealing to you.
    • If you side with the Order in the Swamp during the Force Recon quest line in Chapter II, he will start dealing to you (again).
    • If you side with the Scoia'tael in the Swamp during the Force Recon quest line in Chapter II, he will stop dealing to you.
  • Chapter III
    • If you complete the quest Six Feet Under in Chapter III, he will start doing business with you.
    • If you complete the quest Echoes of Yesterday in Chapter III, he will stop doing business with you.
    • If you choose the Order path in Gold Rush in Chapter III, he will (presumably) start doing business with you (some users report that he did not start doing business with them). To be safe, complete Six Feet Under and Echoes of Yesterday so that the second one you complete advances the same side as your future choice in Gold Rush, or be forced to use the swordsmith in the Marketplace if you want one of your swords reforged.
    • If you choose the Scoia'tael path in Gold Rush in Chapter III, he will completely stop talking to you. However, his shopkeeper the Order Merchant will continue doing business with you (assuming that he has been friendly to you before the Gold Rush).
Malcolm Stein (aka the dwarven blacksmith):
  • Chapter I
    • If you sold Haren Brogg's goods to the Scoia'tael during Strangers in the Night in Chapter I, Malcolm will deal with you at the beginning of Chapter II.
      • If you killed the Scoia'tael, he will not.
  • Chapter II
    • Will forge a lightning rod for 50 Items Oren for The Sentry quest in Chapter II, which is 20 Items Oren cheaper then his competitor - Order armorer.
    • If you side with the Scoia'tael in the Swamp during the Force Recon quest line in Chapter II, he will start dealing to you (again).
    • If you side with the Order in the Swamp during the Force Recon quest line in Chapter II, he will stop dealing to you.
    • If you complete A Ghost Story and free the half-elf woman from the thugs, he will start dealing to you again. This can be done either in Chapter II or Chapter III.
  • Chapter III
    • If you clear Vivaldi of suspicion, he will start doing business with you.
    • If you complete the quest Six Feet Under in Chapter III, he will stop doing business with you.
    • If you complete the quest Echoes of Yesterday in Chapter III, he will start doing business with you.
    • If you choose the Scoia'tael path in Gold Rush in Chapter III, he will (presumably) start doing business with you (some users report that he did not start doing business with them). To be safe, complete Six Feet Under and Echoes of Yesterday so that the second one you complete advances the same side as your future choice in Gold Rush, or be forced to use the swordsmith in the Marketplace if you want one of your swords reforged.
    • If you choose the Order path in Gold Rush in Chapter III, he will completely stop talking to you. However, his shopkeeper will continue doing business with you (assuming that he has been friendly to you before the Gold Rush).
