NOTE THIS GUIDE CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR CRAFTING! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
I’ll remove this message in a few days.
Table of Contents
IntroBoth the Soulforge and Dungeons have been added with the 3.1 patch! Soulforge requires you to complete a short quest chain in Blighted Lands, while Dungeons requires a short chain in Drifting Sands. After this they are available from the Mini-Game menu above Treasure Hunt and Arena.
LevelsThere are 10 levels for your Soulforge, and it can be leveled up in one of two ways, killing enemies or paying gems. For killing enemies, they can be killed in any game mode and they will be counted towards your forge's level progress. The price to level up the forge with gems gets discounted percentage wise based on your kills. eg kill half the required number? The cost is now 50% of the total.

JewelsJewels are our new crafting currency and can be obtained in a number of ways. The main method is to do the daily Dungeons (more on those later), but you can also craft them from Shards. We have 2 different types, coloured jewels and colourless.
Other than Shards all of the above can be crafted for the cost of 100 souls and 500 shards each, except for Diamonds which cost 1,000 shards instead of 500.
TraitstonesYes traitstones can finally be crafted! And ALL are craftable! You now have a use for all those majors and minors you have laying around! Traitstones (other than Celestials) need other traitstones of the same colour to craft. So Major Water, needs Minor Waters. Arcanes need an equal amount of runics from each colour, eg Swamp needs 3 Runic Nature and 3 Runic Waters, for single colours you need 6 of the one colour.
|Celestial||-||-||-||-||-||100 of each|
TroopsTroops are also craftable! ... with some restrictions. Except for Legendary and Mythics troops you craft troops by crafting a Summon Stone of a certain colour, which then summons a random troop of that colour (Including legendaries, and possibly Mythics). Eg a Blue Summon stone could summon a Dwarven Gate, or Borealis.
Also each week there are four specific Legendary and four specific Mythic troops available for crafting. These change each week at the usual weekly reset time. You get to pick which of the 4 you want, though the price is the same for all troops of that rarity.
|Summon Stone (any colour)||100||50||-||-|
Note: Following info is from the beta and might have changed
There is also a new Mythic that is only available from the Soulforge, and is always craft-able. Introducing… Xathenos!
Xathenos is unique in that his has a special recipe to craft. (Which ties in a bit to the lore of Xathenos for those that know it)
- 50,000 Souls
- 300 Gems
- 4,000 Diamonds
- Eye of Xathenos
- Heart of Xathenos
- Soul of Xathenos
The last three items are weapons for the hero that are craft-able in the weapons section (more details on those in the next section)
WeaponsNew weapons are also craftable! There is a Sword and Staff for each colour, as well as some unique weapons! Swords and Staves have the same costs, and the jewels required are the same as their element type (eg Stone Sword needs Garnets)
|Eye of Xathenos||100,000||300 Blue and Purple||50||3|
|Heart of Xathenos||100,000||300 Red and Purple||50||3|
|Soul of Xathenos||100,000||300 Yellow and Purple||50||3|
|Shattered Blade||100,000||400 Blue||50||3|
|Broken Guard||100,000||400 Yellow||50||3|
And if you were thinking “Why can I craft a shattered blade and broken guard in a forge? It seems to make more sense that these would be used to make a weapon!” You’d actually be right… they are used to make the game’s first (actual) Mythic weapon, DAWNBRINGER! (Yes class weapons are technically mythic, but they show as Legendary in game, and are only single colour)
- 1,000,000 Souls
- 200 Gems
- 3 Celestial Traitstones
- Shattered Blade
- Broken Guard
Dawnbringer is assumedly a tri-colour weapon.
Also note that weapons are never consumed in crafting, so you only ever need to create one of each of the weapons needed to craft Dawnbringer or Xathenos.
OtherCurrently the Other tab only contains a recipe to craft 100 souls from 10 Diamonds. Though this might be useful considering the sheer amount of Souls required for some of the items in the previous tabs!
Each day there is a new dungeon to play and clearing the battles within it will grant you Jewels as a reward. Dungeons reset daily as does the Gem Bounty you’re able to buy once you clear the first battle.
Each of the three battles will feature a troop with a particular buff to it’s spell or traits, each being harder than the last. With the final one giving you the best chance at Diamonds.
If you clear the first battle you also get the opportunity to buy a one off pack of materials, called a Gem Bounty based on the dungeon’s colour for 50 Gems. There is also a real money pack purchasable (Daily Deal), but this wasn’t working properly in the beta, so no real information is available on it.

Many thanks to CliffyA and the rest of the beta community for help in putting this together!
