How to Refine Ore and Scrap Metal

Refined via the Smelter

Ores and Scrap Iron can be refined into craftable materials using a Smelter. A Smelter can be crafted at any time using a Hammer, as long as you have 20 Stones and 5 Surtling Cores, and a Workbench nearby.

Refined via the Blast Furnace

Higher-level Ore like the Flametal Ore and the Black Metal Scrap will require the more expensive Blast Furnace to process. A Blast Furnace requires an Artisan Table to produce, so the player will need to have defeated Moder to obtain two Dragon Tears. In addition, 10 Iron, 20 Fine Wood, 20 Stones, and 5 Surtling Cores are required to make it.
