The Forgemaster is a powerful Dwarven Centurion that guards the Aetherium Forge. The Forgemaster is slightly larger in size than normal Centurions and breathes a gout of fire instead of steam. It has a minimum level of 24, so lower level characters will want to take extra care - though this is quite hard with both its ranged and melee attack being quite strong. The fire it breathes will also linger on the ground for some time, causing low-medium fire damage. If you have a follower with you, it is highly advisable to allow them to attack first - as the difficulty in killing The Forgemaster is much lower if its attention is elsewhere.
