The Work of a Blacksmith

Blacksmithing 101

1. Gather materials
2. Craft at the Workshop
3. Display and sell your items

Those three steps!

Adventure into dungeons, gather materials by gathering and looting monsters, then craft high quality equipment. Whether you equip your characters with the equipment you make or display and sell them in your shop is up to you.

Adventuring Basics

Blacksmithing is not enough to get by. Adventuring is crucial! Find other party members at the Guild and fulfill request after request to progress through the story and earn rewards. Keep busy as an adventurer by completing a number of requests ranging from supplying equipment to the state, improving the Tavern menu, to simply assisting those around town who need help.

Character Creation

A total of 14 classes

- Faiths that grant blessings to your characters
- Passive Skills for additional customization
- Formations which can influence the tide of battle

Create unique and exciting characters for a truly original party.

The Town of Santburg

Various places around Santburg will be indispensable to your success in both blacksmithing and adventuring.

Horick at the Item Shop is an alchemist.
Despite his apathetic nature, his skill is unquestionable.

Hannah, the receptionist at the Arena is levelheaded and somewhat robot-like.
Just don't get her started talking about weapons...

You will meet many more characters throughout the story who will support and guide you throughout your journey.
