In the early stages of your game, you will only have access to the first of these two locations: there you can apply basic power ups to your equipment, using the Forging Stones that you will find (or buy) during your adventure.

Later, after unlocking the Round Table Keep, and after obtaining some Funeral Forging Stones (i.e. the rarest and most powerful version), you will have the option to apply more significant enhancements to your equipment. But let’s see everything in detail in the next paragraphs, step by step.

In the Church of Elleh, right next to the merchant Kalé, there is a Blacksmith’s table. Interact with it to receive a list of all updates available for equipped gear and the one in your inventory.

Based on how many stones you use, you will earn, the weapon will become progressively more powerful:

  • Forging stone [1]: reinforces armaments up to +3
