Forge has two areas within it, the first called the Combine and second, the Armory and third is Technology Factory.

Unlocks at Kingdom Level 17
The process also generates the potential for a cooldown period, however early on it can take five or more uses to actually reach the level where you have to wait.
The most common use for this process when this area first becomes available is the forging of four like color gems (or jewelry in game language) of the same level into the level one higher. This is a common way to increase the Battle Power and abilities of your heroes.
NOTE: The combining of jewels can also be accessed from the Jewelry page in the Training Ground, however to actually give the improved gem to the hero requires re-entering the Training Ground, and the Jewelry sub-tab.
This section unlocks at Kingdom Level 25
Here you can create Elite and Wicked quality equipment from base parts and shards.
This process requires acquiring Shards (which are pieces of broken Orc equipment) and combining them to rebuild that item.
Elite quality items use elite shards.
Wicked items require wicked shards. Here you can take four shards of the same type and forge them into one higher quality shard.
Legendary items require certain items (exclusive).
Either process can be accomplished using "Normal Armoring" (Once per server day, 60% chance of success, destroy one of the shards at random if you fail) or "Gold Hammer" (100% Success, costs 50 diamonds). It's usually recommended to patiently use your daily free Hammer, although you may be tempted to use the Golden one when the shard that may be destroyed is a Wicked one.
VIP level 3 increases the daily Armoring chance to 80%
This is a new feature from the 0.13.2.2.0.167 version. Players are now able to increase equipment level and rarity. A new resource is introduced: Stones and Moonstones. It's unlocked at Kingdom Level 32.
Important: When Researching or Smelting equipment, the enhancement level that is already on the piece of equipment will remain on it. E.g. An Elite Orc Axe (level 20) enhanced until 18 upon smelting will result in an Elite Staff of Vigor (level 30) enhanced until 18.
This feature allows a player to increase the rarity of a piece of equipment. (Elite => Wicked => Orange).
Researched equipment retain their current enhancement level when improved to the higher tier item. Currently the displayed BP for researching from elite gear that is enhanced to wicked gear is incorrect. When you research the gear it will correct itself to the proper BP. Example : Level 70 Elite Strongbow with 11424 BP will display a level 60 Wicked Sword of the Brave with 11324 BP. After researching the Sword of the Brave will instead have the proper amount of BP, which is 12446. You do not lose BP by researching elite gear that is already enhanced.
Stones are very common, while Moonstones are extremely rare. It is better to spend Stones to smelt a Wicked 30 item up to Wicked 60, and then to research it to Slaughtering item. This will cost many more Stones, but save you 10 Moonstone compared to researching an elite 60 item to wicked 50, then again to Slaughtering 20. Since you get dozens of stones a day (if you disassemble all gear you get from Blitz Acres, both specials and elite 50's, or even 40's if you do not need them), but only a handful of Moonstones a month, this is the better method to obtain the most Slaughtering gear. The only exception is if you have highly enhanced elite gear already. By researching it to wicked, you save tens of thousands of Gold and dozens of Grindstones because elite is cheaper to enhance. You will have to decide on your own how much you value Moonstone compared to the Gold and Grindstone you can save this way.
Note that not all equipment can be smelted or researched. Some event items are exempted from this feature. We'll provide a list of known exceptions:
- Party Hat
- Wicked Steel Sword
- (still incomplete, feel free to add)
Equipment Research Cost
Enhancement level - will be the same after Research.
Needed Hero level - the requirement will be reduced by 10.
This means that after Research the equipment will have increased stats but reduced Battle Power.
Minimum Equipment Level (Input)
|Gold||Honor||Dark Soul Crystals||Moonstones||Rarity (Output)|
|Elite||10 - 60||5000||5000||1||10||Of the Brave (Wicked)|
|Wicked||30 - 60||10000||10000||3||20||Slaughtering (Legendary)|
This feature allows a player to increase the Hero-level requirement by 10 levels, thus increasing the stats and the Battle Power of the Equipment. Please note that the chart given here indicates a range of input Enhancement levels. The smelting process ALWAYS adds 10 levels to the required Hero level to wear. It costs Gold, Stones and Grindstones.
