Gamers currently playing Baldur’s Gate 3 may encounter a bug affecting the Adamantine Forge. This glitch results in an inability to retrieve items from the Forge after defeating the Grym. Specifically, players cannot retrieve the second item due to a continuous spewing of lava from the valve. However, there is a simple solution to this problem. Read on to discover how to fix the Adamantine Forge not working in Baldur’s Gate 3.

Update: An Attack of the Fanboy reader recently told me that the fix in this paragraph worked for him, meaning the bug is still prevalent. Since this fix is confirmed to help with the Adamantine Forge not working bug after the latest patch, I’ve made it the primary fix instead. Here are the steps: First, you’ll want to reload your save. After crafting your first item, defeat the Grym boss to obtain both the crafted item and the boss’s loot. To avoid triggering the bug, do not touch the forge lever. Instead, eject the mold by pulling the nearby lever, then press the elevator button to return to the top and safely use the forge.

If the above fix doesn’t work for you then here’s another way to fix Adamantine Forge not working in Baldur’s Gate 3:

  1. Kill the Grym.
    • The Grym can only be damaged when superheated and has resistance to almost every damage type except bludgeoning. If you can’t seem to damage him, ensure he is in the lava and looks red, like he is heated. Then, pull the lever to do damage to him.
  2. Enable Turned-base mode by pressing.
  3. Keep ending your turns until the Lave disappears.
    • In my game, I found you may need to end your turns three times before this happens..
  4. Take the Item
  5. Take the Mold.
  6. Raise the Platform by interacting with the lever.
  7. Insert the Ore and the Mold.
  8. Interact with the Lever to bring the platform down again.
  9. Fill the platform with lava by using the Lava valve.
  10. Press the lever, and your item will now be there as intended.

The two fixes mentioned above have worked for BG3 players at Attack of the Fanboy and on Reddit, meaning they should work for you!
