Blacksmith Guide | How to Repair Weapons | Fire Emblem: Three Houses (FE3H)

This is a guide will show you how to unlock the Blacksmith and repair weapons in Fire Emblem: Three Houses (FE3H). Read more to find out how to repair and upgrade weapons through the blacksmith, and where to get the materials!

How to Unlock the Blacksmith

The Blacksmith is found in the marketplace, unlocked after doing a quest for her after first completing the sidequest Forge the Way in Chapter 5: Tower of Black Winds.

Once you have access to the Blacksmith, you can access it in the Marketplace menu in both the Free Day selection and the Battle Preparation Menu.

How to Repair Weapons

Once your weapon's durability runs out through repeated use, it will need to be repaired. You repair weapons by talking to the Blacksmith and accessing the Repair option.

To repair weapons you require certain metals, which can be found in a variety of places. They are shown by the grey round icon with cracks running through it.

How to Upgrade Weapons

In the Blacksmith menu, select Forge to make new weapons out of old ones. Upgrading weapons is much like reparing them, but more often than not, you need either more or different metals. Additionally, you're limited to what you can upgrade by your Professor Level, meaning you cannot upgrade to some weapons despite having the materials for them.

With some weapons, there are completely different options you can upgrade them to instead of just a better version of the original. This is also where you can forge rusted weapons into high-level, possibly rare weapons. Check out our guide on rusted weapons to learn more!

Where to Get Blacksmith Materials

There are many ways to obtain materials that you can use for the Blacksmith. Sometimes it's as easy as buying them, and sometimes you have to fight beasts for them.

Quest Rewards

Some side quests offer a plethora of rewards for completing them. You can get them alongside the cooking materials, seeds, and the like for completing quests you get around Garreg Mach.

Bought at Special Merchants

Once unlocked, the Southern Merchant and the Dark Merchant at the Market sell you items you can use to repair and upgrade weapons in the Blacksmith.

Destroying Monster Armor

Destroying all of a monster's armor blocks will always give you metal, but the kind varies depending on the type of monster. For example, you get umbral steel from shattering demon armor.

Battle Rewards

Regular Battles, Endless Battles and Rare Monster Sightings have rewards for completing them, and sometimes the reward is metals. If you have already explored for the month, try battling one day to go and collect some.
