Seren Morgan-Roberts

As you adventure through the Lands Between, you’ll use various Smithing Stones to upgrade your armaments. Once you get to the final level, +25, you’ll need one of the elusive Ancient Dragon Smithing Stones to complete the upgrade, keep reading to learn where to find them all.

Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone Uses

The Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone is a rare upgrade material that strengthens your armaments by +25.
