How to Unlock Wyrmfire Smithing in Dragon’s Dogma 2

You get Wyrmfire gear through Wyrmfire Smithing, which is unlocked when speaking to the Dragonforged. He’s in a cave on the Batthal Coast. Follow the map above until you reach the coast, and then descend to the beach. I recommend doing this during the day for better vision. Once you’re on the beach, continue following the map until you see a cave.

Enter the cave, where you’ll find a Rift Stone you can activate. The Dragonforged is on the left, down a hallway. Speak to him and select Enhance Equipment to unlock Wyrmfire Smithing. Now, you can craft dragon-enhanced gear using Wyrmslife Crystals. You need to have a weapon or armor piece that already has all three upgrades, and then the Dragonforged can add a special fourth Wyrmfire upgrade to the weapon, increasing its primary stat by a large flat amount. The gear piece will also have its weight halved.

For example, when I enhanced my Greatsword, which had three Vermund upgrades, the fourth Wyrmfire upgrade added a whopping 70 Strength to it. Armor pieces receive a flat defensive bonus, and Magick-oriented weapons receive a Magick bonus. The numbers vary slightly based on the smithing style upgrades you have. On average, Strength or Magick weapons usually get around a +50 to +70 flat bonus for the appropriate stat.

You’ll need 5 to 20 Wyrmslife crystals for each gear piece and you can find these by fighting Drakes. Furthermore, there are also 5 Wyrmslife crystals in the room with the Dragonforged and you get a bunch of them by defeating the False Dragon at Dragonsbreath Temple in the main quest.

That concludes my guide on how to get Wyrmfire Gear in Dragon’s Dogma 2. For more Dragon’s Dogma 2 guides, check out how the best skills for Mystic Spearhand and Thief.
