Forge in Nioh is the game's form of Crafting. This is where you will craft Weapons, Armor and Tools from Smithing Materials found during Missions out the game or salvaged from unwanted Weapons and Armor. The Forge is located inside the Blacksmith screen, which is accessible from the map screen.

 

Players can create Common, Uncommon, Rare and Exotic qualities of Weapons, Armor and Tools. When you craft you have a percentage chance of producing a higher quality output which raises depending on the quality of Smithing Materials you use. Using more Rare materials for examaple will give you a higher chance to create a Rare version. When crafting Weapons and Armor you will produce an output within a fixed level RANGE. This range is theorized to raise with your character level and usually varies by about 5-10 levels.

 

You can also convert lower quality materials to higher ones here with a conversion rate of 10 Regular to 1 Uncommon, 7 Uncommon to 1 Rare and 5 Rare to 1 Exotic.

 

Crafting at the Forge

 

Above you can see the required material needed to create a Sword. For this one you will need 1 Ingot, 3 Tamahagne and 2 Lacquer. You can select which quality of each material you wish to use, and increasing the quantity of certain quality materials will raise your chances of creating that quality of item.

You can see by adding a High-Quality Ingot we have increased the chance of making a Rare version of this Sword. If we had used the Exotic quality we would have had a higher chance to create an even more power version of the Sword. Since the only way to craft the most powerful items is by using the Highest-Quality materials, players will need to farm and Disassemble many Weapons and Armor to be able to craft the equipment they want.

 

Somewhat Random Outputs

 


Our first output turned out Uncommon. Note that the weapon only has 2 Special Effects and came out at level 28 which is the highest level that I could craft at my current character level.


On our second attempt we got a Common version. Note that it only has 1 Special Effect listed and came out at level 25.


Finally on our 3rd try we got the Rare quality we were shooting for. Note that their are 3 Special Effects and the level game out at 26.

 

 

Smithing Materials

 

Smithing Materials in Nioh are used at the Blacksmith to create Weapons, Armor and Tools. Smithing Materials come in 4 qualities: Regular, Quality, High-Quality and Highest Quality, with each type needed to make better quality Weapons, Armor and Tools.

These materials will be used through the Forge tab at the Blacksmith and players will be able to deconstruct Weapons and Armor for materials using the ?? tab. You may also combine lower quality materials to receive higher ones.
