The Elven forge is an utility block that acts like the vanilla furnace, but is more advanced. They are the primary forging tool used by the various Elf factions of Middle-earth. Like other forges, Elven forges can be used to make alloys.
Alloying iron and coal to make an ingot of Elven Steel in an Elven forge will give the player the achievement "Elven Smith".
In the renewed version only, forge recipes can be configured using datapacks, and they smelt at half the speed of their 1.7.10 equivalents. They also emit smoke particles through the hole in their top.
