However, the placement is very specific, since each region is also divided into individual biomes, with each biome again offering its own raw materials.

So let’s see where we can find some supplies.

Iron ore is especially common in New World on or near rocky cliffs. In the starting region of King’s Rock, you have a good chance of finding a few ore deposits on higher ledges.

If you want to mine iron ore early in the starting areas, you should first get a pickaxe, which you can easily craft from fresh wood and flints. For each of the three starting areas, there are deposits of iron ore that you can visit in the first hour.

  • First light: On the way from the watchtower on the beach to the settlement, north of the path.
  • King’s Rock: Large occurrences on the cliffs south of the settlement
  • Windsward: Some occurrences in the highlands south of the settlement

Once you have mined enough iron ore and other ores and reached level 25 in the mining skill, you can make your life even easier when collecting resources in New World. At level 25, you unlock the ability to track iron ore. Tracking materials in New World works differently than in other MMOs. Instead of being displayed on the map, iron ore will appear on your compass as soon as you are less than 100 meters away from it. This means you no longer have to blindly search the cliffs.
