Lodestone is one of the rarest materials in New World, and you’ll need to be a certain Mining level in order to gather it. Here’s where you can find the material, including exact locations.
Mining is one of five Gathering Skills in the Amazon Games MMORPG. Using a pickaxe, you mine different types of ore and stone to create weapons, armor, and more.
You can’t gather everything straight away, though – many resources require a certain Mining level to be able to obtain it. And Lodestone is no exception to the rule.
Lodestone is a Tier 4 Stone that is used in crafting and to upgrade settlements, the latter of which you’ll need to refine it into Lodestone Blocks for, which can’t be done until Stonecutting level 100. If you thought that sounds high, well, you can’t actually mine the material until Mining level 105.
It rewards high XP when mined, so it is a popular choice for players who are grinding their Mining level from 100 to 150.

The resource can also sell for a decent chunk of change on the Trading Board when sold in bulk so it’s worth your time if you’re trying to make money.
After you hit Mining level 105, you’ll be able to gather Lodestone. But you can’t actually track it until you hit level 155.
Once you reach it and unlock tracking, the stone will appear in your compass at the top of your screen when you’re in the vicinity of a node.
Because Lodestone is a high-level resource, it is found in abundance in later level areas like Shattered Mountain and Great Cleave which is all well and good if you’re character level 50 through 60, but lower level players are going to struggle getting there, let alone surviving.

There are a handful of lower level Lodestone locations that fit everyone, though. But they’re popular, so prepare to fight for them if it’s busy.
- Most north-eastern point of First Light, just behind Fort First Light.
- West of Spiti Ruins in Cutlass Keys, by the beach
- Just west of Lodestone Lair in Monarch’s Bluffs
- In Dankfur Hollow in Windsward
