The Dwarves tapped the heat at the heart of Nirn for many purposes. They used steam to warm their subterranean cities and to motivate their devices. To forge their superb metals, they needed such intense heat that it could only come from molten lava.

The Earth Forge

The Earth Forge is a secret Dwemer ruin in the mountains which is maintained by the Fighters Guild.

The heart of the Earth Forge
The entrance to Pressure Room III
Pressure Room III

The forge becomes fully accessible after completing the Fighters Guild quest line, and is home to two special crafting sites. A small wayshrine can be found in the exterior area.

The ruin consists of two zones, the Earth Forge and Pressure Room III. The crafting site for making Kagrenac's Hope set pieces can be found in the heart of the Forge, where the Prismatic Core was forged. The Orgnum's Scales set can be crafted in Pressure Room III, the entrance to which is outside the interior ruin, to your left as you face it. A note From Jofnir to Merric lies on the ground near the crafting site.

The Earth Forge can only be accessed via the portals in the Evermore, Rawl'kha and Riften Fighters Guildhalls.

During The Prismatic Core you will enter a solo version of the Earth Forge where you will need to defend the Earth Forge against Molag Bal's undead minions. In the Will of the Council, you will return to the forge when preparing the final assault against the Mortuum Vivicus, and again afterwards, but no enemies will appear during these visits.
