# Forgeable materials

One of the biggest influences upon equipment in *Golden Sun: The Lost Age* is the presence of forgeable material, with *Golden Sun: Dark Dawn* continuing the system. These all must be given to the blacksmith, Sunshine in Yallam in *The Lost Age*, or Obaba in Champa in *Dark Dawn*, before a large proportion of the game’s most powerful equipment can be acquired. The blacksmiths can also reforge rusty items found throughout Weyard. You pay Sunshine's wife the price the created item would be bought for in a shop, while Obaba forges the items free of cost.
