Where to find Iron Ore in V Rising?

Iron can be extracted from Iron Ores in the game’s world and is spread across some particular locations only.

Here’s a list of locations where Iron Ore can be found in abundance:

  • Haunted Iron Mine (located south of Dunley Farmlands).
  • North-west corner of Dunley Farmlands.
  • Eastern side of Cursed Forest.

Iron Ore farming requirements

Before you proceed to these locations to gather all the iron you need, you should really consider getting to at least level 37.

This is because a powerful boss lurks in the Haunted Iron Mine area just waiting to tear you asunder. The second item that you need to carry to mine iron is a Merciless Copper Weapon, ideally a Merciless Copper Mace.

It’ll deal a greater amount of damage to iron ores contrary to other weapons in the game.

How to mine Iron in V Rising

After you’ve secured all the requirements, it’s time to head to the Iron mines. You must also ensure to drink the blood of a Worker Blood type NPC, to maximize the yield efficiency trait.

This will help you to collect more materials than normal, ultimately aiding in faster upgrades of gear and castle.

With the iron mined, you’ll also be able to smelt them to make Iron Ingots. However, it will need a recipe that can only be achieved after defeating the Quincey Bandit King (level 37 boss).

That’s everything you need to know on how to locate and farm Iron Ore in V Rising!
