Mithral Ore is a valuable resource in Baldur’s Gate 3. Despite its common rarity, it’s challenging to find and mine. However, the rewards are worth the effort as it allows you to craft powerful weapons and armor. This guide will reveal the BG3 Mithril Ore locations and provide you with the method to mine and use them in crafting.
Where To Get Mithral Ore in BG3
Mithral Ore is crucial for crafting powerful adamantine weapons and armor in Baldur’s Gate 3. However, you’ll have to put in some effort and go on a bit of adventure to find this stuff. Here’s a detailed breakdown of the BG3 Mithril Ore locations.
Mithral Ore Location #1
The first vein of Mithral Ore can be found in the Abandoned Refuge, located northeast of the Adamantine Forge. You will have to cross some lava and reach the cavern wall at the coordinates X: -556 Y: 275.
Mithril Ore Location #2
The second vein can be found in the Ancient Temple, located northwest of the Abandoned Refuge. Like the first location, you’ll need to cross some lava. The Mithral Vein is situated next to a cliff at the coordinates X: -642 Y: 255.
How To Mine Mithral Ore in BG3
Mining Mithral Ore is not as straightforward as it seems. Here are the steps to mine and loot Mithril Ore in the game:
- Locate a Mithral Vein. The locations mentioned above can be handy in this regard.
- Equip a Bludgeoning Weapon. Equip one of your characters with such a weapon before you start mining.
- Attack the Mithril Vein. Now start hitting the ore vein until its HP drops to 0. The vein is immune to most damage types except for bludgeoning damage.
- Collect the Mithral Ore. Once the vein is destroyed, it will drop a single ore, which you can add to your inventory.
How To Use Mithril Ore in Baldur’s Gate 3
The Adamantine Forge is where you can craft items using Mithral Ore. However, to use the forge, you will need to defeat the boss, Grym. Once you have defeated Grym and collected the Mithril Ore, you can create some of the most powerful items in the game.
The adamantine items that you can craft using this ore are Adamantine Mace, Adamantine Longsword, Adamantine Scimitar, Adamantine Shield, Adamantine Scale Mail, and Adamantine Splint Armor.
Crafting one item uses up one Mithral Ore, and only one ore can be obtained from each vein, meaning only two adamantine items can be crafted during a single playthrough.
