The Enclave is a location on Mars that is home to the ancient Weapon Forging relic of Pyramid origin, first discovered by the Vanguard shortly after Mars’ reappearance. The Guardians eventually discover its purpose and how to utilize the technology to create weapons.
Guardians will be given the Enigma Glaive as their first resonant weapon to shape. The in-game tutorial will walk you through how to craft your first weapon, but at first glance, when shaping a weapon, you will need to choose an Intrinsic Bonus, two perks, and two traits.

Although many weapons contain deepsight resonance, not every weapon is capable of extracting a pattern.

Be sure to continuously attune weapons with Deepsight Resonance and collect Ascendant Alloys when possible! Ascendant Alloys can drop from completing the Campaign Weekly Mission and Wellspring, or by purchasing from Master Rahool.
The Relic provides a way of reshaping your weapon, allowing you to fine-tune your weapon. Once you have unlocked additional perks by levelling up your weapon, go back to the Relic on Mars. From the Relic Menu, select “Reshape.” Follow the same process as to how you shaped your weapon.
NOTE: A Resonant Weapon that you wish to shape/reshape must be unlocked and not equipped.
