"adda2" was a deleted elemental Reaver forge that was intended to feature in Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver. The forge would have allowed Raziel to imbue the Wraith Blade with elemental energy but which element is unclear. Ultimately both the forge and its accompanying enhancement were cut due to time constraints.

DevelopmentEdit

The “Adda2” chamber was one of many elemental Reaver forges that was created with the intention of making an appearance in Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver.The forge was a special chamber where Raziel would be able to imbue the Wraith blade with elemental energy to forge an unknown Reaver enhancement. Due to the time constraints, all of the other forges were cut and only the Fire forge remained in the final version, with this forge ultimately removed.


Although not featured in the final game several promotional articles in magazines in the run-up to the release of the title mentioned the various deleted enhancements and forges - mentioning six elemental enhancements that could be gained from forges.

“Adda2” is not present in any capacity in the retail or beta version of the game, however it was present in the alpha version of the game publicised in 2020, which revealed the forge as a previously unknown seventh forge of unclear origin and with no element known to be associated with it. The chamber was found off a previously unknown canyon linking Ash Village the Oracle's Cave (which had itself changed position).

The chamber itself was unfinished even in the alpha and consisted of an simply textured version of the Stone Forge - appearing as an elongated rectangular room with stone or metallic repeating wall sections. At the far end of the chamber the forge itself was positioned, this was a stony replica of the 'anvil' apparatus found in the Stone Forge. The forge was not functional and no blade could be forged or reimbued from it.

NotesEdit

  • Although none of the forges are identified in game the forge room is labelled as ”adda2”. Unlike the other forges, no coding is present for the enhancement gained.
  • While the represents a previously unknown seventh forge there are already seven Reaver enhancements and seven equivalent glyphs present. The seventh 'Amplified Reaver' was present in the alpha but counted as an ability instead of a reaver enhancement and was intended to be gained through the Reaver consuming the souls of Ariel and Kain rather than imbued at a set forge. The seventh 'Force glyph' was long acknowledged to have no accompanying Reaver enhancement. Ultimately the purpose of this forge remains unknown.
  • Had the alpha arrangement of forges made it to completion then this forge would have been unusually close to another - appearing only a room away from the Stone Forge found at the back of Ash Village .This raises the possibility that the forge may be a copy or alternative suggestion for the position of the Stone Forge.
