Materials are required in V Rising to create new gear and to upgrade your castle. Iron is a hugely important resource in the game as it is required to create iron ingots to make the next tier of Weapons and Armor after Copper. Here is the best place to farm Iron ore.
Best Places to farm Iron Ore in V Rising
Haunted Iron Mine
The best location at the beginning of the game to farm iron is the Haunted Iron Mine. To gather iron you will need a copper mace. This location is a mine to the north of Farbane Woods, that holds a large number of iron deposits that respawn regularly. You will also find several chests surrounding the mine and a V Blood boss at the bottom of the mine.
Be cautious in this area as it contains many environmental traps and high-level enemies. You should only travel to this mine if you are around level 35-40 gear level.
How to make Iron Ingots
To create Iron weapons, you will first need to turn the Iron ore into ingots. This is done by building a furnace at your castle. The furnace requires 480 Stone and 60 Copper Ore to build. Place your Iron ore in the input section and Iron ingots will begin to be smelted. A single Iron ingot requires 20 Iron ore to create.
