All Iron Ore (Mining Outcrop) Locations

You can find Iron Ore in blue mining outcrops in the Shrine Ruins.

Iron Ore Farming Route

The most effective way to farm all the Iron Ore from the Shrine Ruins is to follow this route.

(1) Find the Mining Outcrop in the Mountain Behind the Main Camp

There is a Great Wirebug directly behind the tent of the main camp. Use it and climb up the mountain behind the tent.

Once you land, you should see a Bitterbug with a ledge above it, jump up to the ledge and you'll find the mining outcrop atop the mountain.

(2) Find the Mining Outcrop Overlooking Area 1

There's a cliff overlooking Area 1, to the left of the giant stone arch. Climb up that cliff and find the second blue mining outcrop.

(3) Ascend Using Two Great Wirebugs and Swing Across To The Plateau

Find the ledge right of one of the statues right below the Area 5 marker in the map. Ascend it and you should find a Great Wirebug.

Use this Great Wirebug and at the peak of your flight, there will be another Great Wirebug. Use it as well to ascend to the top of a ruined tower.

Once atop the tower, look to your left and you'll see a ruined wooden arch. Past that is a plateau that has the next mining outcrop, which is to your left as you enter the arch.

(4) Climb the Waterfall Past Area 6

You will find a waterfall past Area 6. The mining outcrop is simply at the top of the waterfall, to the right. You can climb up the waterfall using the vines to the left of it.

(5) Find the Mining Outcrop in Area 12

There will be an mining outcrop in Area 12, to the southern walls.

(6) Find the Mining Outcrop in Area 11

There will be another mining outcrop in Area 11, to the southern walls as well.

    • Give us the ability to change our layered armor display. What I mean is, ya know how armor looks different on the male and female models? well, I wish there was the ability to change the appearance from the male models of armor, to the female models, and the reverse without changing the gender of your character itself. This would be really nice, as imo some armor pieces look better as the male model version.
