Finding Iron Ore
- It must be gathered at a private or one of the public mines, using a proper tool:
- You get two chunks of ore per gather. Each vein holds eight gathers-worth. Thus, each vein gives up to sixteen chunks of ore at a time.
An ore vein will automatically replenish after someone mines some other vein that mine. Usually, a mining site will only replenish some of its active veins so some will appear dead, but it only takes one miner in there to see how things change; depleting one vein will often force a dead vein to replenish. Run to that one and mine it, and another one will replenish. A guarded quarry will have both Iron Ore and Minerals. If you mine a mineral vein, a dead vein might suddenly have either one. In a mine that has HQ resources, each vein can have regular or HQ ore. It's random, however if you go into an HQ mine only mining HQ resources, you'll soon see fewer HQ there. To keep it all cycling well, mine it all.
Iron ore is refined into low-tier crafting materials.
