The Smithy is a place where you can combine identical weapons to improve their capabilities.
|Shop Level||Chapter Completion||Required Dragon Vein Points|
In the Birthright campaign, you can only forge Hoshidan weapons (eg. katanas); in the Conquest campaign, you can only forge Nohrian weapons (eg. swords). Or if you’re in Revelation, you can forge both types.
Forging in Fates operates differently compared to previous games; this time, you forge weapons by combining two identical weapons and providing the corresponding mineral.
Doing so produces a weapon +1 with enhanced stats.
Any weapon can be forged with the exception of non-standard weapons (eg. dragonstones) and sacred weapons (eg. Yato). S Rank weapons (and the True Ganglari) can theoretically be forged, but you only acquire one per game.
For example, you can forge a Brass Katana +1 if you supply two Brass Katanas and a Pearl.
From here, you can continue and combine two copies of a weapon +1 to make a stronger weapon +2 and so forth. However, as you forge stronger and stronger weapons, you will require an exponential supply of weapons and minerals.
Eventually, to make a weapon +7, you will need 128 (2^7) copies of the base weapon plus up to 247 minerals.
Note: The character running the Smithy will discount the required minerals for their proficient weapon type (but no less than 1 mineral).
