Let's do a bit of explaining as to how Smithing works. For starters, unlike SO2, any character can smith any workable weapon. Also unlike SO2, only a few weapons and minerals may be used. When you smith, you use up a weapon, a mineral, and a Smith Hammer. Even at level 10 with the Originality Talent the chances of success are very low, so keep saving and resetting! Remember to use the normal save function, not savestates, because if you use savestates you'll get the same result every time. The weapons available are divided into the following categories:

-Weak weapons.
-Enhanced weapons; these always have a "+1" or "+2" beside their names.
-Super weapons; very powerful weapons, usually with elemental attributes. These are the ones you're trying to get by smithing!
-Failure weapons; these are junk and cannot be equipped.

Here are the basic rules as to what comes out of what:

  • Every combination has at least one weaker and stronger weapon to do the combination with. Using the stronger weapons seem to have a much higher rate of success.
  • Any Weak weapon + Damascus/Mithril/Orihalcon/Rune Metal/Moonite/Meteorite = any Enhanced weapon
  • Any weapon (weak or enhanced) + Silver/Iron = specific Weak weapon (specific to each weapon type)
  • Any Enhanced weapon + specific mineral (not Silver/Iron) = specific Super weapon.
  • Each weapon type is treated differently. Only swords, two-hand swords, daggers, knuckles, and spears may be smithed.
  • The following weapons may come out as ?Weapon which must be identified: Dull Sword and any "super weapon" (no weak or enhanced weapons, or Junk). So if you're smithing knuckles or spears and get a ?Weapon, you must have been successful.
