How to Get Silver Ore

Explore the Mountain Biome

Use a Frost Resistance Mead

Silver Veins are found in the freezing-cold Mountain biome. If you are going to explore this biome, we suggest bringing a Frost Resistance Mead to counter the cold!

Equip a Wishbone

Look for the Silver Ore using the Wishbone

Silver veins are usually found underground and are rarely exposed on the ground. To locate them, we suggest using the Wishbone which is obtainable by slaying Bonemass. Once you are near a Silver ore vein, the Wishbone will glow faster!

How to Get and Use the Wishbone

Use At Least an Iron Pickaxe

Use Atleast an Iron Pickaxe

Silver ore veins are not breakable by a Bronze Pickaxe. You need to obtain an Iron Pickaxe first!

Can Be Spawned with Console Command

If you don't mind using cheats to obtain it, Silver Ores can easily be spawned with the console command.

To spawn the item, first turn on cheat codes by typing devcommands in the F5 console, and use the spawn SilverOre command to create the item.
