How To Find Iron In New World

Iron can be used to make weapons, armor, finish town projects, trade for other items, and level up your crafting in New World. To obtain iron, it must be smelted from iron ores — which can be harvested from iron ore veins using a pickaxe.

In New World, iron ores can be easily found in lower-level zones, and in higher-level areas, you can check out the caves on hills and mountains.

The easiest way to find iron ore locations is to open up the map and click on the Resource Locations. This will open up a window highlighting the places where you can find such resources.

Iron Ore Locations and Routes in New World

You can find iron ore veins in the following locations:

  • Everfall (in Midnight Den, Meadow Lake Fishery, Canary Mine)
  • First Light (near Monarch’s Bluff, Nyhart’s Anchorage, Graymane Burrow)

You will find several mining spots around the First Light that can be covered quickly and efficiently if you follow a certain route. The following is a map of the two routes shared by YouTuber Vulkan. You can find tons of iron ores in these locations in New World.
