Basically I happened to have a bunch of ingredients for making spears, so to boost my forge ability a bit and make some money I made them and put them in the shipping bin. Slight issue there...I accidentally mistook the fire staff for the spear and yes I only realized AFTER I saved.
I'm in late Autumn with over 30+ hours in this run and REALLY don't want to restart now. Will I get the ability to forge staves anytime soon? Because as far as I can tell they're really the only way to beat bosses without being over-leveled or carrying an atrocious amount of potions.
