How to repair weapons in Fire Emblem: Three Hopes.

The Fire Emblem: Three Hopes repair feature is key to surviving as long as possible on the battlefield, especially since weapons won’t stay in their best shape possible forever. If you’ve been missing your school days with Bernadetta, Hubert, Edelgard, and everybody else, the new take on the game is taking things from turn-based to real-time Musou action. This guide explains how to repair weapons in Fire Emblem: Three Hopes to keep your arsenal in its best shape.

How to Repair Weapons in Fire Emblem: Three Hopes

We can debate about weapon durability later, but for now, you’re going to need to repair your weapons in between battles so make sure they’re in the best possible shape.

If you’re wondering how to repair weapons in Fire Emblem: Three Hopes, the steps are as follows:

  • Reach Chapter 4, which is when you’ll unlock access to the Blacksmith
  • Then, whenever you’re exploring the camp, select Facility – Blacksmith as a destination. By default, you can see the Blacksmith on the eastern side of the camp
  • Once there, choose Repair Weapon, which is the second option alongside Forge Weapon and Expand Facility, in case those come in handy
  • From here, you’ll be able to see all your available weapons and their durability
  • Choose the one you want to repair, which requires a cost of materials and gold, and accept the request
  • That is all — now, something like a pair of Ruster Gauntlets can be restored to Iron Gauntlets +7, for example

While each repair you do comes with a cost, it’s always worth keeping an eye on your inventory and seeing how many unrepaired weapons you have laying around. Restoring a couple of them may save you some resources as opposed to just forging new weapons each time, or waiting to be lucky enough to get them as ground loot as well.

Weapon durability may not come as shock if you’ve played other Fire Emblem games, especially since the Fire Emblem: Three Hopes repair feature is similar to what we saw in Three Houses. Of course, while weapons are equally important in both games, you’re constantly using them here due to the Musou nature of the game. While they’re going to last, it’s always best to try and keep them in shape before you jump into the next battle. Depending on who you’re planning on sending over to the task at hand, prioritizing some pieces over others will be key.

I recommend trying and focusing on weapons that can be used by different characters. As such, you’ll be doing the most what you can, especially if you’re on low resources and need to make decisions before a huge battle ahead. Weapons are your bread and butter after all, and it’s key to be ready in the best possible way.

That is all you need to know about this feature, but of course, forging your own weapons is something to consider, and invest both time and resources into doing so properly. It may not make a huge difference as you’re only starting out, but in the long run, it’s going to be key.
