Use the Soulforge with your Jewels and other resources to craft Traitstones, troops (and mythic troops), weapons and more!
Unlocking the Soulforge
Once you've completed all Quests in Blighted Lands the Soulforge will be unlocked. You can find it in the Games menu at the bottom of the Word Map.
The Soulforge has 10 Levels, each level is unlocked by killing a certain number of troops, or if you don't want to wait you can unlock the next level with Gems. Unlocking a new level will allow you to craft different items or even troops. At Level 10 you can craft mythic troops, including Xathenos and Zuul'Goth.
Collecting Jewels and Shards
Most items in the Soulforge require Jewels in their recipes. Jewels can be won in Dungeon battles, bought in the Dungeon offers (look for the purple banner in the top right of the screen), or crafted in the Soulforge. To unlock Dungeons you need to complete all quests in the Drifting Sands.
Craft Troops, weapons and resources
Select the type of item you'd like to craft from the available tabs.
On the left under "Patterns" is a list of things you can craft. The number in green tells you how many of the item, Troop or Weapon that you're able to craft with your current resources. Select one of the Patterns and the Crafting recipe will be displayed on the right. The centre image shows what you will craft, the smaller images around it show what items will be spent.
You can use the arrows to craft more than one of the item at a time (e.g. 3x Kerberos troops). Next, select the Craft button and read the confirmation screen carefully when you are ready to craft your item or troop.
NOTE: The Troops and Weapons in the Soulforge change every week so be sure to check it regularly!
Why do some Traitstones require higher rarities to craft?
The Soulforge is intended to provide players with an option to craft resources they do not have for a price. Generally, Minor Traitstones are are more abundantly available. Additionally, many of the other resources available are relatively exclusive to the Soulforge whereas Traitstones can be found in many locations in the game. Although it seems a bit backwards, there must be a cost involved for the utility of having a feature that allows you to craft items at will.
Craft Ingots in the Soulforge
All Ingots - except for Common Ingots - can be crafted in the Soulforge using Souls and Ingots of a lower rarity, requiring 10 Ingots of a lower type and 100 souls for each Ingot.
