Lodestone Ore is a level four resource and requires mining level 105 before you can collect it. It’s also arguably one of the most important resources in the New World, as its refined form, Lodestone Bricks, is used to craft various setting orbs to access endgame expeditions.

Lodestone is mainly found in the northern areas of the map, around Great Cleave and Mourningdale. This little guide lists some of the best places to mine for ore, as well as what you can do with them once you’ve got it all together.

As a reminder, these locations are subject to change with the full release of the game (the map is supposed to grow), but we’ll update with any new information.

The best places to find Lodestone

There are several decent locations to find Lodestone, spread all over the map. The highest concentrations are found in Great Cleave, Mourningdale, Weaver’s Fen, and south to Cutlass Keys. Here are some of our favorite places.

Great Cleave – Nullcavity and Catara Falls

Nullcavity and Catara Falls, north of Great Cleave, have several Lodestone nodes dotted around. Nullcavity spawns corrupt enemies around level 50, while Catara Falls spawns ancient enemies around level 44.

Magnetite Ore - Great Cleave


There are a few different places to mine Lodestone in Mourningdale, but our favorite has to be this short section of road to the west of the region. It’s right on the short rocky area of ​​the path west of Menkar and Subra. You can simply mine Lodestone by walking through this area. We haven’t met a lot of other players at that particular location.

Everfall – Ginger Hovel

This is an area where you can mine Lodestone in relative peace, especially if you’re at a higher level. The enemies here are all beasts at the start of level 20, which is a lot easier to deal with than some of the creatures in the north. The Ginger Hovel is located in the southeastern part of Everfall, shown below.

Cutlass Keys – Spiti Ruins

Along the rocky base of the ruins of Spiti there are several Lodestone nodes spread over a large area. While not directly inside an enemy spawn area, there are some higher-level ancient enemies here (between levels 30 and 40.) It wasn’t a particularly common location for the Lodestone mining during beta.

What can you do with Lodestone?

The magnetite ore is refined into magnetite bricks, which are then used to craft these setting orbs for expeditions:

  • Depth Adjustment Orb – used to access The Depths Expedition
  • Eridanus Tuning Orb – used to access the Eridanus Caverns expedition
  • Monoic tuning orb – used to access the Monoic Rift located in Edengrove
  • Mermaid tuning orb – used to access the arena from the mermaid stand

Each of these can require up to 50+ magnetite bricks, which means you’ll have to mine a lot of ore, especially if you frequently repeat expeditions to farm material. You will also need corrupt money.
