A Forge-master can identify and re-forge Legendary Items.

When a character finds, barters or crafts a Legendary item, it cannot be wielded initially. The character must first travel to a Forge-master and have the item identified. During that process anywhere from two to four legacies will be revealed on the item.

For every ten levels the character must re-forge the Legendary item by bringing it to a Forge-master. This process will unlock the next ten levels of advancement. Forge-masters can only unlock advancement up to the item’s max level. After that there is one last re-forge at the item’s max level, though it will not unlock additional advancement.

While re-forging a Legenday item there are two other actions to choose from:

  • Rename the item
  • Refund all spent legend points

Choosing to refund legend points, the rank of all legacies will be set back to one, and all legend points will be refunded. This includes any legacy items that have been upgraded as part of re-forging, so be sure to check them out before heading back into the field.

Forge-masters can also imbue legendary items of level 100 or higher, unlocking their power even further and allowing them to truly grow as the character level up to 140.
