Braves are the heroes of Blacksmith Land. They seek your blacksmithing expertise in order to go on adventures throughout the kingdom.
The specific type of weapon (i.e. sword, staff, glove, etc) you make for them doesn't matter so long as you fullfill the attributes (hardness, magic, good, legendary, etc) they are looking for.
Fulfilling a Brave's request will net you experience and coins. The better the weapon grade, (grades go from rank D to rank S) the higher exp. and coins you will recieve as well as give the Brave a higher chance for a successful adventure completion. The rank you receive is dependent upon how closely you fulfill the Braver's requirements. Rank S weapons always give Brave's a 100% adventure completion rate.
When a Brave has succesffully completed their adventure, you will be rewarded with additional blacksmithing materials and gain exploration mastery in the adventure map. Some materials can only be found this way. If a Brave fails his mission, you won't receive any additional materials, unless you have the Explorer's Persistence master reward. With this perk, it is possible to receive a few materials even if the Brave fails on the first stage.
Note - Stage times given are approximates. The exact time a Brave takes for each stage appears to fluctuate slightly, whether this is due to the weapon rank made for the Brave, a simple visual bug, some other unkown factor or simply a quirk of the system itself is not known at this time.
A Brave's morale will affect the amount of materials you receive after they finish their adventure. The higher their rank, the more materials you will get.
With the introduction on the Card System and Royal Arena, a Brave's morale rank also affects the starting level of their corresponding card. The higher the Brave's rank, the higher their card's starting level.
You can raise a Brave's morale by making weapons for them. How much morale you get or lose depends on two factors: the grade of the weapon made and their current morale level.
Additional morale experience can be gained when getting perfect strikes during the forging process. Different materials give off different amounts of bonus experience.
Morale comes in 5 ranks
Note* - All braves start at the General Moral Rank.
