The Forging License is required to buy a Forge from Studio Palmo. It is earned by making a Directive and answering a multiple-choice exam.

You’ll need 200 SEED Points to take the exam, but your points will only be deducted after you pass. You can take this exam by going to St. Eliza at the Rigbarth Outpost.



To unlock the Forging License Exam, you need to do the following:

  1. Do the main story event where you have to introduce yourself to everyone in town
  2. After the introductions, talk to Livia and she will tell you to check the task board
