Iron is a necessary resource item in New World and is easy to find if you know where to look for it. Iron can be smelted to make Iron ingots after mining it from its source. Iron can be mined by using a mining pick. The very first mining pick that you will get is the flint mining pick, which you can craft anywhere in a workshop of your settlement. This guide will help you farm Iron in New World.
New World Iron Farm
There are quite a few spots where you can find Iron in a good quantity. Most Iron can be found in either the Hills, or the base of the hills, highlands, forest, or even in caves. Iron is mostly found in higher places of the game, so we recommend you to climb different hills, this is your best chance at finding Iron ores.
Spotting an Iron ore is easy as these look a lot like huge black rocks protruding through the ground. To mine Iron from an ore you need to approach the ore and interact with it and your character will start to mine using the mining pick.
You can use these ores to craft Iron ingots, a single Iron ingot requires three Iron ore resources. You can use these Iron ore resources at any smelting station, which can also be found in settlements.
To get the best amount of Iron, you can visit these four specific places; Everfall, First Light, Monarch’s Bluff, and Windsward.
These areas have the highest ratio of Iron ores present, you will need to rotate around in the northwestern side of Everfall to locate Iron ores there. In First Light, you need to go to the far south part and then to the Northeastern part close to the middle point of this area.
Monarch’s Bluff also has Iron ores in the middle section and so does Windsward has them in the same position.
