Every base metal and alloy placed on the ground

Many items in the game are made of metal including tools, weapons, armor, and lanterns. There are eleven base metals, which can be found in raw ore form. Eight of the base metals have a current use, while three base metals have no current use. Base metals with melting points at or below 1300°C can be melted in a crucible and cast into ingots or used to create alloys when combined in specific ratios. Metals with melting temperatures higher than 1300°C require a bloomery to smelt and form ingots.

Base metals

Copper

Stackable 64
Smeltable
Smelt Point 1084°C
Smelt Duration 30 s

Requires Container Yes
Items

Copper is found as native copper, and malachite chunks and nuggets.

Copper is very likely to be the first metal most players obtain. It can be found in small stone surface deposits that provide smeltable ore nuggets when broken, thus a hammer isn't needed. Copper nuggets can also be obtained by panning. A high temperature fuel such as charcoal is needed to smelt copper, which can be used to make every type of weapon, tool, and armor via the casting and smithing mechanics. Copper is also used as a component in all alloys, including: brass, tin bronze, black bronze, bismuth bronze, and molybdochalkos.

Gold

Items

Gold is found only as native gold in quartz chunks which give native gold nuggets.

Gold is a rare metal that is used to make the alloy black bronze. Gold can be used to craft lanterns and armor. Gold nuggets can sometimes be obtained by panning.

Items

Silver is found as native silver in quartz, and native silver in galena chunks which both give native silver nuggets.

Silver is a rare metal that is used to make the alloy black bronze. Silver can be used to craft lanterns and armor. Silver nuggets can sometimes be obtained by panning.

Zinc is found only as sphalerite chunks and nuggets.

Zinc is used as a component of the alloys brass and bismuth bronze. The base metal has no current use. Zinc in the form of sphalerite nuggets can sometimes be obtained by panning.

Items

Lead is found only as galena chunks and nuggets.

Lead is only used as a component of the alloy molybdochalkos. The base metal is the only metal that can be worked when cold, but lead itself has no use as the only item created from its ingots are plates, which are not used to craft anything.

Iron

Smelt Duration 30 s
Smelt Ratio
Requires Container Yes
Items

Iron is found as limonite, hematite, and magnetite chunks and nuggets.

Unlike copper, iron can't be found on the ground. It does appear in rocks and requires a tier 3 (Bronze) pickaxe to mine. A bronze anvil is also needed to work iron. Due to the high melting temperature, Iron can only be smelted in a bloomery.

Meteoric iron

Meteoric Iron Ingot

Smelt Point 1476°C
Smelt Duration 30 s
Smelt Ratio
Requires Container Yes
Items

Meteoric iron can be found in meteoric crash sites in the form of meteoric iron blocks. Crash sites can be identified as slight indentions in the landscapes, sometimes surrounded by suevite stones and meteoric iron pieces similar to surface metal bits. One crash site can have one or more meteoric iron blocks, the player might need to dig down through a dirt layer to find the surrounding suevite rocks around the meteoric iron blocks.

To mine meteoric iron, an iron pickaxe or better is required. Similar to iron, meteoric iron can only be smelted in a bloomery, however it does not produce a bloom and instead results directly in a finished meteoric iron ingot. Two pieces of meteoric iron are needed for every meteoric iron ingot.

Meteoric Iron can only be worked on a tier 3 anvil, meaning you will need at least an iron anvil to be able to work meteoric iron ingots.

Items

Blister Steel is made by carbonizing Iron. It cannot be found naturally in the world, instead the player needs to follow the Steel Making process to obtain it. Blister Steel is the preliminary stage to obtaining steel, and functions the same way iron blooms do. It cannot be used to make tools, weapons or armor, and only functions as a step between iron and steel.

Steel

Items

Steel is made by working blister steel on an anvil by hand or with the help of a helve hammer. It can only be worked on an iron anvil. Steel is used to create the highest tier tools and armor.

Alloys

Alloys are created using the casting mechanic. For more information on alloys, see the casting page. Two notable alloys include bronze and steel.
