The Forge Icon forge.pngis a unique game mechanic for the Dwarfs Dwarfs.png racial factions introduced in the Total War: Warhammer II Resurgent Update and which allows them to craft exclusive itemsWh main anc weapon.png.

Highlights include:

  • Up to 54 items can be forged hailing from all major item classes except arcane itemsWh main anc arcane item.png;
  • Item rarity starts at common Icon rarity common small.png all the way to unique Icon rarity legendary small.png;
  • Items are forged by combining the Dwarfs Dwarfs.png unique oathgold Resource oathgold.png resource with a number of trade resources Trade Agreement.png;
  • With the exception of the unique rarity items, all items can be forged multiple times Mortuary cult multiuse icon.png;
  • The rule of thumb being that the rarer the item the more resources it will require, both in quantity and diversity;
  • Items can be recycled to recoup some oathgold depending on the item rarity (recycling unique items means they will be permanently removed from the current game).

Therefore, players wanting to fully utilise this game mechanic can pursue a number of strategies, from establishing trade agreements or embarking on aggressive expansionism, to produce more oathgold and have access to many of the 16 trade resources required.

It is akin to the Heralds of Ariel Heralds of Ariel.png Forge of Daith Forge of daith.png and the Tomb Kings Khemri.png Mortuary CultIcon mortuary cult.png game mechanics and is not available on the first iteration of the game trilogy.

How it works[edit | edit source]

The Forge can be accessed via clicking the hammer and anvil icon in the lower right, while on the campaign map.

The Forge window contains several tabs, for each kind of item. Requirements for crafting each item are listed on the right. Clicking on a required trade resource will zoom your camera to the spot on the map which has that resource and is closest to your empire.
