Bronze 13,335 Experience.png 189 Karma 44 Copper coin
These are the expected rewards for a level 80 player.


  • There are two simultaneous goals that need to be completed: Smelting Progress (adding metal to the furnace), and Heat Level (keeping the heat level high by pumping the Bellows).
  • To increase the Smelting Progress, you add metal to the furnace by throwing scrap metal into it. Scrap metal is found in the Crates around the Iron Legion Camp which have Event swords (tango icon).png above them. Many of the Crates contain a hostile creature inside, which will drop the scrap metal when defeated. Once you have the scrap metal, you can throw it towards the furnace, either into the lower hole or the top. If you drop the scrap metal, you can pick it up again. The Scrap Metal bundle has 2 skills: Rush in the first skill slot, which grants Swiftness, and Throw Scrap Metal in the second slot.
  • To increase the Current Heat Level, pump the Bellows to heat the furnace. When you interact with the Bellows (marked with a Event cog (tango icon).png), your weapon skills change. 4 of the skills will be a depressed bellow, and 1 will be an inflated bellow:
  • Press the one that is inflated to increase the heat level before it swaps. If you choose one of the uninflated options or don't choose anything, you will be pushed back, and the heat level will not increase.
  • To get the Billowing Bellows achievement, you need to pick the correct option 15 times in a row without skipping any or picking the wrong choice. You get about 1 or 2 seconds for each try. It may take some practice to get used to.
    • If you have the weapon skills mapped to keys other than 1-5 on your keyboard, it may be beneficial to swap them back to the default settings for this achievement. Once the skills are mapped to 1-5, it can be played kind of like a piano, which may be helpful for some people if they are struggling.

Event start
Forgekeeper Santia Fiercehammer: All right, don't worry, this is easy- pump the bellows to heat up the furnace. Hot furnace: good. Anything else: bad.
Forgekeeper Santia Fiercehammer: Crates around the forge are filled with scrap. Bust 'em open and throw it all into the furnace. Make it all melty.
During the event
Forgekeeper Santia Fiercehammer: This is good! Keep this up, and we'll be ready to go in no time!
Forgekeeper Santia Fiercehammer: The heat's too low! Doesn't matter how much scrap you toss in, we need someone on those bellows!
Forgekeeper Santia Fiercehammer: Somebody get on those bellows! I wanna hear this furnace ROAR!
Forgekeeper Santia Fiercehammer: We're gonna need to pick up the pace! There's a lot more metal to melt and not much time left!
Event success
Forgekeeper Santia Fiercehammer: That'll do it, great! All the metal's prepped and ready for forging. Appreciate the hand.
Marsa Jawcatcher: Ooh, I like the look of that! What's the news, smithy?
Forgekeeper Santia Fiercehammer: Latest batch of dune rollers is ready to go. Why did you need so many so soon?
Marsa Jawcatcher: We're gonna blow 'em up.
Forgekeeper Santia Fiercehammer: What?
Marsa Jawcatcher: Ah, yeah. It's gonna be great. Got a big event booked and everything. We'll show 'em just what the Iron Legion can do!
Event failure
Forgekeeper Santia Fiercehammer: Shut it down, shut it down, everyone. That's enough. Gave it our best, but no way we make the shipment now.
Marsa Jawcatcher: How's the latest batch of dune rollers coming along?
Forgekeeper Santia Fiercehammer: Furnace fell behind schedule. Don't think we'll have 'em ready in time for your, um, ah... "big event."
Marsa Jawcatcher: Well, burn me. I'll tell Bangar we need to push the event, but we need those dune rollers. Got it? I'll be back later.
