So, as has been stated before, the Blacksmith's Station Barracks Building of the Lost Grove is very rough. It is obviously due for a lot of improvements and they will definitely be coming over the course of the next couple of weeks.
However, it desperately needed some adjustments to the Smelting and Reforging processes to be of any use at this point and so I went ahead and got that put in.
For those who have already built the Blacksmith's Station, you will now notice that it costs a lot less Gold and Materials to accomplish Reforging. The three types of ores were also rebalanced so that they are all equal in demand - barring RNG. Previously, they were slightly off.
What is Reforging?
For those who haven't gotten there yet or even for those who have and are still confused, I will briefly go over the point of this and how all of it works.
So, first of all, Reforging is taking the Lost Grove exclusive Equipment and making it better. Each piece of Lost Grove Equipment can be Reforged a total of 5 times. Each Reforge will increase the Stat benefit that the piece of Equipment offers to the pet. For example, here are the five Reforges for the Exotic Relics:
As you can see, the final result far surpasses not only the base Vinethorn Relics, but even the first couple tier Reforges of a Vinethorn Relic.
How Does Reforging Work?
First, you have to salvage Equipment that you no longer want. This will give you Enchanted Powder in return. The higher quality the salvaged Equipment, the more Enchanted Powder you will receive.
Next, you need to smelt the Iron, Silver, and Gold Ore that you find into Iron, Silver, and Gold Bars. It requires varying amounts for each Bar and has a small Gold price requirement per bar. You can smelt up to 5 bars at a time assuming you have sufficient ore.
Now, once you have enough materials, head to the Reforge section and select a piece of Equipment. It will display the required materials to upgrade and the changes in that Equipment's stats after being Reforged.
Assuming you have all of the required materials, go forth with the Reforge and then it's done. Rinse and repeat as often as you want for whatever Equipment you want to Reforge.
How Much Does This All Cost?
Each Tier of Reforging requires more materials than the previous Tier. In other words, Reforging an item from +4 to +5 will require more materials than it does to Reforge it from +1 to +2. However, the bonus for going from +4 to +5 is much larger than it is from +1 to +2.
Additionally, each Tier of Equipment costs more materials to Reforge. So Reforging a Vinethorn Equipment will require more materials and Gold than it will cost to Reforge an Exotic Equipment.
For the example above where I fully Reforged my Pyromancer's Exotic Relic, it required the following materials to go from base to +5:
So, for those who have used the Blacksmith's Station so far, you will notice that it literally could not be more difficult to select Equipment from the pop up menus lol. This will 100% be improved and made 100x easier to use.
Secondly, additional tweaks may follow depending on how things go after this first round of updates. This was a very difficult feature to test just on my own. So that's largely why it's so unpolished. Just not enough raw data to simulate.
Lastly, you will eventually be able to craft the many Avatar Items that you've been desperately seeking through the Blacksmith's Station as well as future Pet Equipment.
So there is still a lot more to come in regards to the Blacksmith's Station. But hopefully this will help make it a bit more functional for the time being and increase its demand a bit. =)

Then that's why you can't see it. I mean, you don't have a chance of surviving without pets that can clear the content up to it anyways. (If there's something in specific you're having trouble with, just ask/mention it.)
