Let’s cut right to the chase here, as chances are if you’re playing through Fire Emblem Three Houses’ Cindered Shadows DLC, you’ve already played a chunk of the base game and are familiar with Smithing Stones. These handy items used to forge and repair weapons at the Blacksmith are obtained a little differently in Cindered Shadows, so let’s talk you through it.

Getting Smithing Stones in Cindered Shadows – Fire Emblem Three Houses
Unlike the base game, Cindered Shadows actually makes it incredibly easy to get Smithing Stones. In fact, they’re so easy you barely have to do anything at all.
You get 20 Smithing Stones each time you complete a battle in the DLC, so you’ll almost always have a constant and steady supply to get your weapons back to their best condition before your next battle.
It’s also worth noting that Smithing Stones can be used to not only repair the existing weapons in your inventory, but to also forge Rusted weapons that you can pick up on your adventure and turn them into more powerful and reliable Iron variants, instead.
