The Forge of the Guardian, the artifact forge for mages.

An artifact forge is a powerful object found in each order hall that can be used to alter and upgrade artifact weapons.

Prior to patch 8.0.1, their primary purpose was to allow the choosing of artifact traits by consuming Artifact Power; now, most of them can only be used to change a weapon's appearance. The Luminous Pearl is the only forge that can still be used to its full extent, since the  [Underlight Angler]'s power was not sacrificed to subdue the Sword of Sargeras.

Each artifact forge is also accompanied by an NPC who, before the artifacts were burned out, could reset an artifact's traits when spoken to.
