Reforging is a mechanic that allows the player to add additional stats to Weapons and Armor, similar to Enchanting. An item can have only one reforge at once, but they can be replaced. Reforges provide greater stat boosts the higher the Rarity of the item is.
Items can be reforged in the reforging menu, accessed from the Blacksmith or from a Reforge Anvil. The player can apply basic reforges to weapons, armor pieces, or tool for a price depending on the rarity of the item.
The reforge given is random, with all reforges having the same chance to be rolled. Players will know the reforge given only after the reforge has been paid for. The cost of reforging will scale on the Rarity of the item. The extra stats provided by the reforge also increase with rarity.
Players can open the advanced reforging GUI by interacting with Malik at the dungeon entrances or using a Reforge Anvil on the player's private island. This feature allows players to apply Reforge Stones to their items for a cost in order to get the corresponding reforges on them.
When a weapon, an armor piece, or a tool is upgraded, its reforge is usually kept. However, there are some exceptions, such as a Vampire Mask and a Witch Mask upon merging to a Vampire Witch Mask. Players can hover on the output slot of the crafting table to see if the reforge is going to be kept or not.
Reforge Stones are items which grant special reforges to Armor, Weapons, or Tools. They can be applied by talking to Malik the Blacksmith or using the Reforge Anvil and paying the fee to apply. They can be obtained through various means, such as mining, Dungeon Post-Boss Chests, or a drop from most mobs.
|Very Special||50,000 coins|
During the first week of the reforging rework (July 1, 2020 to July 7, 2020), all prices were halved to allow for a smoother transition between the old system and the new system. However, it was extended and being removed in the 0.9.8 Update.
List of Reforges
|Mobile users may be unable to see the reforge stat tables because of wiki styling limitations. Please switch to desktop view in order to see them.|
|Note: Some higher level stats cannot be found in these tables but might be seen on Reforge Stones' individual pages. Please help to add higher level reforge stone stats!|
- Stat Abbreviations
To make everything fit on the tables below, stat names have been heavily abbreviated; this table explains what these abbreviations are (alternatively, hover over the stat for a tooltip with the name).
|Bonus Attack Speed||Strength||Crit Chance||Crit Damage||Farming Fortune||Foraging Fortune||Mining Fortune|
In addition to the reforges mentioned above, some Armor or tools share a name with certain reforges. To avoid repeats ("Wise Wise Dragon Armor"), they use a different prefix (except "shiny" Shiny Yellow Rock). They still have the same stat bonuses.
|Very||Wise||Wise Dragon Armor|
|Strong||Strong Dragon Armor|
|Highly||Superior||Superior Dragon Armor|
|Not So||Light||Heavy Armor|
|Thicc[sic]||Heavy||Super Heavy Armor|
|Even More||Refined||Refined Mithril Pickaxe|
|Refined Titanium Pickaxe|
Recommended Reforges and Combinations
- This mechanic may be a reference to Terraria, as the game has similar reforging mechanics and names. A full list can be viewed here.
- The custom prefixes apply only to Armor pieces and Pickaxes, so it is possible to obtain a "Shiny Shiny Yellow Rock".
- Before 0.8, the only reforge that had its stats in a different color instead of gray was Godly, with its stats being red. Now, all reforges are colored blue.
- The very first reforge on a profile costs 10 coal instead of coins. Reforges continue to cost 10 coal until the player takes an item out. Replacing the item within will also keep the cost at 10 coal.
- Prior the Crimson Isle's update, you could reforge accessories.
