The blacksmith serves as both the game's main merchant and the way to create and modify equipment. It is accessible from the mission selection screen, through the menu shown when selecting the starting point.

Buy and Sell[]

Allows William to sell any item he owns for Gold.png gold, in a similar way to offering equipment at a Shrine. It also offers several options for buying items :

  • Armors and Weapons, both Common and Uncommon
  • Consumable Items, including Ammunition and the Book of Reincarnation.
  • Special Finds, containing random items whose rarity can reach Exotic
  • Buying back recently sold items


Allows you to forge weapons, armors and tools. To unlock additional weapons and armors to forge, one must find the required Smithing Texts or advance through the story. The level of the equipment forged will increase as Williamn progresses into the story, with a maximum crafted level of 299-300. Items of Common, Uncommon, Rare, Exotic and Divine rarity can be forged. The rarity of the item forged depends on the rarity of the material used. You can forge Crafting Materials of a lower tier into their higher tier.

==Soul Match==

Allows you to upgrade a piece of equipment by using another piece of equipment as material. The different upgrades that can happen are :

  • Increasing the base equipment level to the level of the material equipment
  • Inheriting a special effect from the material equipment into the base equipment. This requires the material equipment to have reached max familiarity. Only the inheritable special effect (icon : ■> ■) will be inherited. It will overwrite any existing inheritable special effect, and cannot happen if the base item has a special effect of the same family as the desired inheritable special effect.
  • Increasing the + value of a Divine or Ethereal equipment. If the +value of the material equipment is equal or higher than the +value of the base equipment, then the plus value will increase by one.


Allows William to change the appearance of his gear, without modifying any of the gear's stats.


Allows William to change his Hairstyle.


Allows a player to modify the special effect present on a piece of equipment. This can be done in two ways :
