Iron is one of the starting resources in the New World, and as such is extremely important if you want to craft decent starting gear yourself. In this guide, we’ll help you find the best locations to find iron ore in the New World so you can mine and craft a large number of iron ingots.
Where to find iron ore in the New World
To find iron ore, you need to search for iron ore vein deposits. Deposits can be found at the ground level of the map, but they differ from regular rocks as they are relatively larger.
Finding and mining iron can be time consuming, especially as you compete with other players for the same sources of iron ore.
To find iron ore veins, you need to head to the area covered with trees and mountains, because iron ores are mainly found on mountain tops, inside caves or uphill.
There are three early game locations where you will find iron ores once you start your game:
- first light
- The Monarch Cliffs
- eternal fall
If you’re looking forward to leveling up in New World, then First Light is probably the best place to start.
In the First Light area, you’ll find a good amount of iron in the southern part of the area. However, you will encounter a wave of Lynx while searching for iron ores there. So keep an eye on that.
If you’re ready to take on some level 14 monsters, head to the Graymane Burrow area to find a bunch of iron ore to farm.
The Monarch Cliffs
There are also places in Monarch’s Bluffs where you can find iron ores.
Monarch’s Bluffs iron ores can be found in Nyhart’s Anchorage. Just head to the south side of Monarch’s Bluffs, near the Brigands’ Stronghold, to find several Iron Ores inside or outside the mob area with level 24 mobs roaming around.
Apart from these locations, you can also find iron ores at:
- The north side of Monarch’s Bluffs is near Lodestone Lair.
- Mines De Miclot and Mine Adamant.
- Hold of the traitor (fishing place).
Finally, we have the location called Everfall where you can find iron ores both east and north of the location.
On the north side, you’ll find iron ores at the Meadow Lake Fishery. But watch out for lost level 18 monsters that roam the area.
While on the east side, you will find iron ores in the Midnight Den. This is probably the most recommended place to visit as it offers you a mixture of iron, gold and silver ores to find inside the cave.
Additionally, we have Canary Mine where you will also find a decent amount of iron ore surrounded by level 15 corrupted mobs.
