The Blacksmith is an NPC in Dead Cells. He increases the chances for higher quality Gear (except Amulets) to appear within runs in exchange for cells. The Blacksmith can only be found in the passages after boss biomes (Black Bridge, Insufferable Crypt, Nest, Clock Room and Guardian's Haven). All upgrades from the Blacksmith’s Legendary Forge are permanent across runs.

Legendary Forge[]

The Legendary Forge is the Blacksmith's workshop, where the player can invest cells to increase the chances of higher quality Gear.

Upgrades[]

Main article: Gear Level

When the player upgrades the Legendary Forge, items that drop or appear in shops have a chance to be of +, ++, or S quality. The player can invest cells up to 100% drop-rate in any rank, but cannot invest in a rank if the previous one isn’t at 100%.
