Fae Iron is an uncommon Tier 2 Metal resource derived from Iron Veins in New World. To say it’s uncommon is a bit of an understatement because this is a very rare resource. There are some things you can do to increase your odds of finding Fae Iron, though. Find out how in the guide below.

Where to get Fae Iron in New World

Where to get Fae Iron in New World

There are various ways to acquire Fae Iron in New World, including:

  • Mining it from Iron Veins
  • Hortus Bears in Weaver’s Fen and Lambent Ursus in Reekwater
  • Buying it from the Trading Post

Iron Veins

It is possible to get Fae Iron from Iron Veins in New World, but you’ll want to follow these steps:

  1. Level up your mining trade skill.
  2. Crafting a Mining Pickaxe with a Mining Luck perk.
  3. Using mining potions and food buffs to increase the drop rate.

One way to find Fae Iron is simply by mining a ton of Iron Veins. A higher mining trade skill will improve your odds of yielding rare gems from nodes. Therefore, it may be a good idea to come back to farming for Fae Iron when your mining skill is around level 100. 

Next, make sure you try to craft an uncommon Mining Pickaxe with the Mining Luck perk. Every time you make a harvesting tool, you have a chance to proc an uncommon one. If you find one with the Mining Luck perk, it will increase your odds of finding rare metals like Fae Iron.

Finally, some potions and food buffs add extra perks to your harvesting skill, like mining. These are more advanced recipes, so leveling up your cooking skill is an excellent idea if you want to discover these.

There are a few bear species in New World that you can mine after you slay them. These bears have stones on their skin, and mining them is a great way to find rare resources. You can find two types of bears that can give you Fae Iron:

  1. Hortus Bears in Weaver’s Fen
  2. Lambent Ursus in Reekwater

Hortus Bears in Weaver’s Fen are located in the southeastern part of the territory. Open your map, and look for the Ursus Hortus location designated with a bear icon. These bears are level 30, and you will need at least level 100 mining to mine them. Each bear can drop anywhere from 0-6 Fae Iron at a time, as well as other rare resources like Earth Quintessence.

You can also find similar bears in Reekwater, and they are called Ursus Lambent. These are level 59-62 elite mobs, which are possible to solo if you are of the proper level and gear score. Like the bears in Weaver’s Fen, these bears can be mined when you kill them. They drop Fae Iron, Earth Quintessence, and other more common materials.

Trading Post

Lastly, if you’ve tried everything else and just can’t find any Fae Iron, you can simply purchase it from the Trading Post. On my server, it is currently selling for anywhere between 0.50 to 10 Gold, so prices can vary wildly, but it shouldn’t be too expensive.

There you have it; all the ways to find Fae Iron in New World. For more related content and guides, check out our website’s New World section.
