This quest can be triggered by interacting with the Duergars in Grymforge who are also looking for the forge. Certain requirements are needed to craft items using the Adamantite forge and there is also a boss that you need to fight against. Let’s go through the steps required to complete this quest and to forge unique items.

They will reveal that there is a secret Adamantite forge behind the rubble. Once you assist them in clearing the cave-in, you will find a pathway that leads to the Grymforge teleport waypoint. However, there is another way to get there by making sure your party is equipped with misty steps to make the process easier.
In order to craft items using the Adamantite forge you will require a Steel Mould and Mithral Ore. On the left side of the cave-in, you will spot a large gear lying on the ground. you will need to use misty steps and teleport to the area to acquire the Splint mould near the large gear. You can teleport your way through and find the Grymforge teleport waypoint.

How to Defeat Grym and Use the Adamantite Forge
Once you have the Splint Mould and the Mithral Ore, you must place them into the chamber and the crucible. You will find a lever to the right of the chamber, which upon activating will take you down to the lava. Here, you will need to use the wheel on the opposite side of the lever to release the lava. Doing so will awaken Grym, who is the protector of the Adamantite forge.
In order to effectively defeat the boss, you must use the lava and the hammer of the forge to deal bludgeoning damage as Grym is ineffective to other types of damage. The key is to use the lava to superheat it. You can do so by placing one of your characters near the lava wheel and the lever and using your other characters as bait. Use misty steps and teleport to the mould, which will lure it toward the forge. After that, skip your turns and use the lever to hit Grym dealing massive damage. It will take a few hits to defeat it.
Once you have defeated Grym, you can reap your reward from the Adamantite forge. Note that there are also different moulds such as a Mace and scale armor in the direct vicinity of the waypoint.
