There are several broken artifacts in the PC role-playing game Baldur's Gate 2 that can be put back together if the party can find all of the various pieces and pay a master smith to reforge them. The Crom Faeyr Warhammer is one of the strongest of these artifacts, significantly boosting the wearer's strength and instantly slaying certain types of creatures it is wielded against.
Speak with the wizard named Madeen in the "Council of Six" building located in the Government District of Athkatla. Accept Madeen's quest to find the man named Valygar in the Umar Hills.
Travel to the Umar Hills and convince Valygar to join the party--or kill him and take his corpse. Leave Valygar's house and go to the nearby Temple Ruins. Make your way to the bottom level of the ruins and kill the shadow dragon named Thaxll'ssillyia. Search the dragon's body afterward and take the Crom Faeyr Scroll you find there.
Go to the Windspear Hills and defeat the warrior Tazok, who can be found in the dungeon near the red dragon Firkraag. Take the key you find on Tazok's body.
Return to Athkatla and go inside the house next to the Planar Sphere in the Slums District. With Valygar in your party or his body in your inventory, the door to the Planar Sphere will open. Kill the wild halfling warriors in the Planar Sphere and take the Gauntlets of Ogre Power you find on one of their bodies.
Enter the sewers from one of the manholes in the Government District and find the secret door that can be opened with Tazok's key. Go inside the door and take the Hammer of Thunderbolts you find in the cauldron in the center of the room.
Play through the game until the party is transported to the Underdark in Chapter Five. Go to the caverns of the amphibious Kuo-Tuoa creatures and kill the demon knights near the statue of the demon lord Demogorgon. Take the Girdle of Frost Giant Strength you find on one of their bodies.
Head back to Athkatla and find the home of the dwarf smith Cromwell in the Docks District. Speak to Cromwell with the Girdle of Frost Giant Strength, Crom Faeyr Scroll, Gauntlets of Ogre Power and Hammer of Thunderbolts in your party's inventory. Cromwell will charge the group 10,000 gold and then forge those items into the Crom Faeyr Warhammer.
The Crom Faeyr will instantly slay a stone or clay golem that it hits. So if you encounter those creatures, be sure your frontline fighter character is equipped with the weapon.
