Reforging is a mechanic in Dauntless that resets a weapon's skill level to gain permanent buffs in the Slayer's Path and an Aetherhearts IconAetherheart. It can be unlocked in the Slayer's Path after reaching the final milestone: Reforge.

Reforging is done at the Sparkforge, located in front of Katerin Sorrel and near the Broken Blade tavern. To reforge a weapon skill, Slayers must have a weapon with skill level 20 and 100 Aethersparks IconAethersparks. Reforging compresses the Aethersparks IconAethersparks, a type of ambient aether that gathers on weapons, into a powerful Aetherhearts IconAetherheart. Slayers can use this Aetherhearts IconAetherheart to power surge a weapon or armour and unlock its full potential.

An alternative method to obtain an Aetherhearts IconAetherheart was introduced with Patch 1.6.2, which requires Slayers to trade in 200 Aethersparks IconAethersparks at the Sparkforge, allowing them to bypass the requirement of reforging their weapon skill.

Reforge Rank[ | ]

Reforge rank is a measure of how many times a Slayer has reforged a particular weapon skill and is represented by a special frame that changes as Slayers keep on reforging. Reforge rank is shown below the weapon skill level and is visible to everyone.

Passive Empowerments[ | ]

Slayers can unlock Empowerment nodes in the Slayer Path after reforging different weapon skills multiple times. These permanent upgrades grant passive bonuses that apply to all weapon types. Reforging a weapon skill more than 10 times provides no additional bonus or power.

Weapon Class Empowerment Per Node Total Bonus
Sword Increased weapon charge rate +2% +10%
Axe Increased power +1% +5%
Hammer Increased stagger damage +3% +15%
Chain Blades Reduced stamina cost +2% +10%
Warpike Increased wound damage +3% +15%
Repeaters Increased movement speed +1.5% +7.5%
Aether Strikers Increased attack speed +1% +5%

Banked XP[ | ]

Banked XP2

XP banking was introduced with Patch 1.8.0 and later extended with Patch 1.13.3. This system allows Slayers to continue earning Weapon XP while at level 20. Banked XP can be unlocked in the Slayer's Path after reaching Milestone XII: Reforged.

Banked XP is earned at 75% the rate of normal XP but Slayers are able to fight with full weapon power at level 20. Each weapon type has its own XP bank. Banked XP is automatically spent towards levels of weapon skill when Slayers reforge.

Slayers can extend banked XP capacity which can increase the maximum level that banked XP can be spent towards. This capacity can be upgraded in the Slayers Path after reforging multiple times. The requirements for unlocking Banked XP nodes are mentioned below:
