Best Place To Farm Iron In New World

Iron Is One Of New World's Most Valuable Resources

Iron Ore is a low tier resource that is used in recipes from start to end-game. This guide on Best Place To Farm Iron In New World will tell you about two different routes you can take so you can farm iron and get a stock of Iron Bars for a lot of crafting.

It’s important to note that Iron Ore is one of the most sought after resources in all of New World. It’s used to level up early game and it’s used towards the latter stages of the game. As such, it’s a highly contested resource. If you want to get the most gains when trying to farm for Iron Ore, you want to try and do it when you server is quiet. This isn’t always possible of course, but if you have the option, mining is best dedicated to times when you server is at its lowest population.

Best Place To Farm Iron In New World – Route One

The first route begins at Monarch’s Bluffs Village in Monarch’s Bluffs. To the South East there is a group of cliffs, you want to stay on top of the cliffs for the entire route. When the path goes red, this is an area without any Iron Ore spawns, so you can rush through there if you don’t want to grab any other resources. I’ve found this to be one of the better spots, despite being so close to town. The cliffs to the South East especially, are rarely farmed on my server, so it’s a good place to start. Most of the Iron Ore on this route is atop cliffs so don’t drop down unless you’re 100% sure the Iron Ore is down there.

Best Place To Farm Iron In New World – Route Two

This is an alternate route. It begins in Cutlass Keys Village in Cutlass Keys. It has more Iron spawning over a shorter distance but in my experience, at least on my server, it’s a more popular spot and you will often have competition.

  • Iron is a very sought after resource, farming at peak times will often be filled with competition
  • Farming Iron is best done when the server is at its lowest capacity. Typically very early morning or very late evening
  • The two routes shown here both provide tons of iron ore locations
