Iron ore is one of the few raw resources gathered from resource nodes located all over Agon.
Iron ore can be gathered from one of the many metal veins in Agon. Harvesting metal veins requires a pickaxe, stamina, and a metal node (metal vein) which has not had it's resources depleted. All resource nodes have a finite amount of the respective resource which can be gathered at one time. When it is depleted, more may be harvested at a later time. Other resources which are randomly gathered from include essences such as Neithal Essence, and rust. Essences can only be harvested outside of safe zones.
Iron ore can be crafted into irons bars, which are a commonly used ingredients in various armors, weapons, and structures. It is a requirement in nears all weapons, metal armor, arrows, and boats. Crafting Iron ore into Iron ignots requires a forge, 5 iron ore, and 1 gold. Two iron bars are crafted from this process and it takes 10 seconds with no skill in smelting.
