Forging is the biggest and oldest feature of the mod. allowing tools to be made with style. each tool you make has it's history that will pass down it's lifespan. You become much more attached to your tools then ever before

How to Forge

It's pretty simple. put the recipe on the table(like a regular bench) and hit it with a hammer until the progress hits full.

Time your hits accordingly. do not repeatedly hit it quickly. if so; you would just end up going through hammers and taking forever crafting.
For optimal crafting time. hit the anvil every second.

Quality is represented as a bar. Right-clicking is less progress, but increases quality, mixing left and right click hits can optimise quality and speed. (You will pick the technique up). Only damageable items really matter, but if quality reaches 0: the item is ruined. The trick is to alternate between left clicking and right clicking to keep the quality high.

Tiers of hardware


Large Anvils: Increased grid size, can make large items(like heavy weapons)

Bronze anvil: Upgraded to handle bronze
Iron anvil: Upgraded to handle iron
Steel anvil: Upgraded to handle steel
Mithril Anvil: Upgraded to handle mithril


  • Stone Hammer: Slow
  • Bronze Hammer: Half speed
  • Iron Hammer: Standard use.
  • Steel Hammer 2x Fast as iron
  • Mithril Hammer: Fastest
  • Ornate Hammer: Designed for hazardous materials like dragonforge and ignotumite. Same speed as iron, (Not needed to work ornate/guilded)

Forge / ingot Heating

used to heat up ingots

Can be made from stonebrick or cobblebrick, these are nothing more than a texture change


When interacting with the forge, you can sometimes catch a flying ember, this doesn't hurt much but is an inconvenience.
See Tailoring

This will not protect you from burning, lava, or walking on the forge. Only from the interaction burns

Can be made from stonebrick or cobblebrick, these are nothing more than a texture change

How to heat ingots

Put fuel in the forge to start up (coal, blazerod, lava) more will later be added
put the ingot in the top to heat.
some ingots need higher temperature than others
different fuels have higher temperatures. but use bellows to increase it furthermore
Coal should be able to heat most ingots when used with bellows

*Ingots can be ruined if the forge is hot enough, but this shouldn't be much of a concern
*Material will not get hotter than the forge temp, and cools down accordingly: This means you can leave items sitting in the forge and they wont get hotter than expected.
*Items will glint when workable, to make it easier to know when to pick up
*Ingots do not cool down when outside the forge, as soon as their workable: you should be fine
*"Unstable" items can be worked, it's nothing more than a warning

How to use bellows

when placed, they face away from the player,
when right clicked, they pump air into an adjacent forge their facing
face a forge and place it next to it to use.
Bellows can provide bonus through a single block(such as a wall)


Most materials only have slight differences, in weapons, damage remains the same for bronze, iron and steel, only durability really changes. Tool selection is pretty straight forward, mainly what materials are better. and picking what suits you. Weapon selection is a matter mainly on their design, that vary on damage, tactical advantages, armor penetration, mobility, and even speed. As for armors, heavier armors are more protective, but harder to move in.
