Fire Emblem: Three Houses - Forging Guide

Forging Overview

Forging enables players to reinforce or remake weapons. After forging, the weapon will have the “+” symbol next to its name and receive a boost in stats. Changes will vary depending on the weapon being forged. For instance, some weapons will have added Might (Mt) but will retain their weight, while forging others will cause them to decrease in weight. In combat, forged weapons comes in handy as they grants higher damage without sacrificing the unit’s attack speed.

  1. Steel weapons into Steel (wep)+ takes 10 stones, plus an amount of gold.
    Repairs take about 1 stone per 20% durability lost, roughly.
    de-rusting a rusted weapon takes 2 stones, some gold. ALSO!
    Some rusted weapons can be things like Silver weapons, so check descriptions of what they clean into
