Almost everything around the Valley is a usable item for crafting and cooking, allowing you to share meals with friends or create beautiful decor.
Finding some Foraging items may require a bit of searching, as they can usually only be found in specific locations. Such is the case for Iron Ore, which is one of the essential crafting items in the game. So here's where to find it and how to turn it into Iron Ingots.
Where to find Iron Ore in Dreamlight Valley
Iron Ore can be found in deposits, much like how you get Gems, but it's only obtainable in a few of the Biomes. Not all deposits will drop ore, so you'll need to head to these particular Biomes: Forest of Valor, Glade of Trust, Sunlit Plateau, Frosted Heights, and Forgotten Lands. I like to stick to Sunlit Plateau and Forgotten Lands since they are next to each other and make farming easier.
Once in those locations, look for deposits (like the ones in the photo above). Deposits can be found spread out most of the Biomes around the outer edges against cliffsides or other rocky structures. Iron Ore can only be found within these resources and will require you to break them open.
You will need to use your pickaxe to harvest Ore from the deposits. Equip your pickaxe through your tool wheel, then press the following actions for your preferable device:
- X on Xbox and Switch
- Square on PlayStation
- M2 on PC
As you break the resources, you will notice the Ore landing on the ground around you. You can then walk over them and collect each of them.
How to make Iron Ingots in Dreamlight Valley
Once you obtain some Iron Ore, head to a crafting table—either in your house, outside Goofy's house, or in Scrooge McDuck's shop—to craft the Ingots through the Refined Material tab. It will take five Iron Ore and one Coal to make each Ingot, so you'll need to mine plenty of Ore to produce more significant amounts.
Many harvestable items spread around the Valley are crucial for crafting items such as decor, refined materials, potions, and functional objects. Collect what you can when you see it, and always leave room in your storage to stash them for safekeeping.
