However, you won’t be able to find Iron Ore until you upgrade your Flame Alter to Level 4 and reach the Kindlewaste area. You can find the best location to mine the ore to the north of the Kindlewastes Ancient Spire. Be sure to bring a pick-axe along with you when heading out to mind Iron Ore. Additionally, remember that the better quality pick-axe you have, the faster you will be able to gather materials.

Once you have collected enough Iron Ore and created the Smelter you can start to craft Iron Bars. To craft Iron Bars in Enshrouded you will need:

  • 25 Charcoal
  • 10 Iron Ore

Combining these in the Smelter will create 10 Iron Bars at a time.
