The Forge was an in-game tool that was created during Nosgoth’s open beta period. It allowed players to be able to craft their own items and give them special properties to help them with their play styles.
The Forge did not give players an advantage in that when an item was forged it would give both positive and negative properties but it could aid a player to an extent depending on how they played.
To forge an item a player would first need to collect forge materials. These could either be earned during matches where at the end of a match items would randomly be dropped to players for free, or they could be purchased direct from the online store for a quicker result.
The Forge also allowed for items to be recharged and re-crafted when specific properties ran out over time or they weren’t to the players liking.
