How To Craft & Upgrade Gear



Learn How to Unlock and Craft Better Armor in Final Fantasy 16

Final Fantasy 16 is a game that involves exploring different locations and fighting battles with various enemies. As you progress through the game, you may want to upgrade your current armor or craft better armor for Clive. Fortunately, you can do both of these things by unlocking the Blacksmith.

To unlock the Blacksmith, you need to make it to Cid’s Hideout and complete the quest where you meet Blackthorne and Charon. Blackthorne is the Blacksmith who can help you craft and upgrade your armor. Once you unlock the Blacksmith, you can easily craft armor by speaking to Blackthorne and asking him to use the forge. A menu will pop up, allowing you to select any item you want to craft, such as weapons, belts, and vambraces.

To craft an item, you need certain materials that you can find by killing enemies, completing quests, and obtaining renown in the game. You can also get special materials from Eikon fights. Upgrade your armor by speaking to Blackthorne and clicking the R2 button. You will see that upgrading armor is similar to crafting it, and you need different materials depending on the item you want to upgrade.

You can unlock more armor that can be crafted by progressing through the game naturally and completing quests. For example, completing Blacksmith Blue’s quest allows you to gain more items to craft. With these tips, you can easily craft and upgrade your armor in Final Fantasy 16.

While playing Final Fantasy 16, you may wonder if you can craft better armor for Clive or even if you can upgrade or enhance your current armor. Thankfully, the answer to both of those questions is YES. What’s even better is you can do this as soon as you unlock the Blacksmith.

Once you have unlocked the Blacksmith, you can also go ahead and upgrade any armor that you may have. Again, all you need to do is speak to Blackthorne and ask him to use the forge. From there, you can click the R2 button and switch to upgrading your armor rather than crafting armor. You will see that upgrading armor is very similar to crafting it. Depending on what piece of armor you want to upgrade (weapon, vambraces, or belts), you will require different materials to do so. You can find these materials the same way you would any others through chests, killing, quests, and renown.
