Iron Ore Farming Route

MHR Iron Ore Spots Shrine Ruins Route.jpgEnlarge

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

MHR Iron Ore 1 Great Wirebug.jpgEnlarge

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

MHR Iron Ore 1 Ledge.jpgEnlarge

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

MHR Iron Ore 2 Ledge.jpgEnlarge

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

MHR Iron Ore 3 Ledge.jpgEnlarge

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.

MHR Iron Ore 3 First Great Wirebug.jpgEnlarge MHR Iron Ore 3 Second Great WIrebug.jpgEnlarge

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

MHR Iron Ore 4.jpgEnlarge

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

      Is April 20 confirmed?? Where’d u get the date

      Player list provides all of their equipment information. But honestly that doesn't really matter mid hunt. Don't add DPS trackers. It gets really annoying hunting with someone thats just shouting out the damage numbers all hunt
