Elden Ring Iji Blacksmith Location

The location of Elden Ring Blacksmith Iji, aka Smithing Master Iji, is in the north of Liurnia. Specifically, you need to go to the Road to the Manor site of grace in Kingsrealm Ruins. We’ll show you exactly where that is in the screenshots below. Immediately to the north of this bonfire, you’ll see a hulking form with a bizarre “mask” sitting at a giant anvil. Needless to say, that’s Iji. Even though he looks terrifying, he’s actually surprisingly friendly and has a very kind voice. However, some of you might not be able to find him here, which can be an issue, especially if you’re trying to finish some kind of quest, like with Blaidd. Luckily, it’s relatively easy to solve.

If Blacksmith Iji is not appearing in his location in Elden Ring for you, there are several potential causes. Most likely, you’ve offended a random NPC, or turned them hostile in some other way. That would have caused all NPCs connected to their quests to disappear, and that included Iji. Heck, you might have annoyed Blaidd himself, I don’t know. What I do know is that, whatever you did, you can fix it. Go and purchase Celestial Dew from the Nomadic Merchant in Ainsel River Well, then take it to the Church of Vows in the east of Liurnia. Interact with the hooded statue and opt to give it the Dew. That way, you will receive absolution. In practice, this means that any sins you might have committed against NPCs are forgiven; even the dead ones will come back to life.

Very early in your exploration of Elden Ring world you will find out that you need to prepare your character for different tasks. You'll need to learn how to use Ashes of War, how to two-hand weapons, or use magic spells during the course of your adventures. Many secrets are also waiting for you, such as, a hostile NPC Sellen that doesn't let you see her shop, an invisible man in a bush, or a huge turtle with a bell that lets you duplicate some very important items.
