How to find titanium ore

Dyson Sphere Program: where to get the elusive resource.

How to find titanium ore

Looking for titanium in Dyson Sphere Program? Titanium is one of the most crucial resources in Youthcat Studio’s factory management game, required for taking your planetary construction into the solar system and beyond. It’s technically one of the rarest resources in the game, although in practical terms it’s still fairly common. It forms in veins that can be mined like most other core resources, like iron, copper, coal and so on.

The crucial difference between titanium and most other resources is that Dyson Sphere Program titanium ore does not appear on your starting planet. During the early game, the only titanium you encounter will be a few scraps you’ll collect while mining larger rocks by hand—nowhere near sufficient to support the kind of construction for which you need this important material. So for all your titanium needs, I’m here to help.

Dyson Sphere Program titanium: how to find it

Since there’s no titanium on your starter planet, you need to search for it off-world. Doing this requires you to equip your mecha-suit with a crucial upgrade: Drive Engine 2. Upgrading your Drive Engine to level two unlocks the mecha-sail, letting you travel between planets (but not between stars, for that you’ll need Drive Engine 3). Researching the mecha-sail requires 200 blue matrices and 200 red matrices, meaning you must also be able to produce the following items:

For blue matrices

  • Magnetic Coils: combine magnets with copper plate in an assembler.
  • Circuit Boards: combine copper plate and iron plate in an assembler.

For red matrices

  • Graphite: smelt two coal.
  • Hydrogen: refine crude oil in an oil refinery. Check out my Dyson Sphere Program power guide for more on that.

Once you’ve unlocked Drive Engine 2, pressing and holding the Space will, fittingly, let you fly into space and journey to other planets in the system. Alongside Drive Engine 2, it’s also a good idea to upgrade Universe Exploration to level two. That unlocks the Starmap, letting you view the planets in your current system, as well as the total resources available on them. This will help identify which worlds have titanium before travelling to them, saving you a wasted journey.

How to mine titanium in Dyson Sphere Program

Once you’ve located and navigated to a planet with titanium veins, you can mine it in exactly the same way as you would any other ground resource. Bring mining drills, transport belts, smelters etc. with you to establish a basic mining operation.

And that’s how you get titanium in Dyson Sphere Program, but there’s one last thing you should know. Obviously, you’ll want to return the titanium to your primary factory for further manufacturing. Unfortunately, you can’t do this at any meaningful scale until you’ve built the Interstellar Logistics Station (not the Planetary Logistics station, which only enables bulk transport around the same planet).

Building the Dyson Sphere Program Interstellar Logistics Station requires the production of yellow matrices, which in turn require titanium as part of their production. This means you’ll initially need to transport some titanium back to your home planet in your inventory. The necessary research for Interstellar Logistics Stations doesn’t require a vast number of yellow matrices, however, so you should soon be able to transport titanium (and many other resources) across the star system and beyond.

Right, so I marked which nodes can give it, however, because it's a "hidden" material, it's basically up to the RNG Gods whether it'll appear or not.

How to find titanium ore

titanium processing, the extraction of titanium from its ores and the preparation of titanium alloys or compounds for use in various products.

Titanium (Ti) is a soft, ductile, silvery gray metal with a melting point of 1,675 °C (3,047 °F). Owing to the formation on its surface of an oxide film that is relatively inert chemically, it has excellent corrosion resistance in most natural environments. In addition, it is light in weight, with a density (4.51 grams per cubic centimetre) midway between aluminum and iron. Its combination of low density and high strength gives it the most efficient strength-to-weight ratio of common metals for temperatures up to 600 °C (1,100 °F).

Because its atomic diameter is similar to many common metals such as aluminum, iron, tin, and vanadium, titanium can easily be alloyed to improve its properties. Like iron, the metal can exist in two crystalline forms: hexagonal close-packed (hcp) below 883 °C (1,621 °F) and body-centred cubic (bcc) at higher temperatures up to its melting point. This allotropic behaviour and the capacity to alloy with many elements result in titanium alloys that have a wide range of mechanical and corrosion-resistant properties.

Although titanium ores are abundant, the high reactivity of the metal with oxygen, nitrogen, and hydrogen in the air at elevated temperatures necessitates complicated and therefore costly production and fabrication processes.

History

Titanium ore was first discovered in 1791 in Cornish beach sands by an English clergyman, William Gregor. The actual identification of the oxide was made a few years later by a German chemist, M.H. Klaproth. Klaproth gave the metal constituent of this oxide the name titanium, after the Titans, the giants of Greek mythology.

Pure metallic titanium was first produced in either 1906 or 1910 by M.A. Hunter at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Troy, New York, U.S.) in cooperation with the General Electric Company. These researchers believed titanium had a melting point of 6,000 °C (10,800 °F) and was therefore a candidate for incandescent-lamp filaments, but, when Hunter produced a metal with a melting point closer to 1,800 °C (3,300 °F), the effort was abandoned. Nevertheless, Hunter did indicate that the metal had some ductility, and his method of producing it by reacting titanium tetrachloride (TiCl4) with sodium under vacuum was later commercialized and is now known as the Hunter process. Metal of significant ductility was produced in 1925 by the Dutch scientists A.E. van Arkel and J.H. de Boer, who dissociated titanium tetraiodide on a hot filament in an evacuated glass bulb.

In 1932 William J. Kroll of Luxembourg produced significant quantities of ductile titanium by combining TiCl4 with calcium. By 1938 Kroll had produced 20 kilograms (50 pounds) of titanium and was convinced that it possessed excellent corrosion and strength properties. At the start of World War II he fled Europe and continued his work in the United States at the Union Carbide Company and later at the U.S. Bureau of Mines. By this time, he had changed the reducing agent from calcium to magnesium metal. Kroll is now recognized as the father of the modern titanium industry, and the Kroll process is the basis for most current titanium production.

A U.S. Air Force study conducted in 1946 concluded that titanium-based alloys were engineering materials of potentially great importance, since the emerging need for higher strength-to-weight ratios in jet aircraft structures and engines could not be satisfied efficiently by either steel or aluminum. As a result, the Department of Defense provided production incentives to start the titanium industry in 1950. Similar industrial capacity was founded in Japan, the U.S.S.R., and the United Kingdom. After this impetus was provided by the aerospace industry, the ready availability of the metal gave rise to opportunities for new applications in other markets, such as chemical processing, medicine, power generation, and waste treatment.

Titanium is the fourth most abundant structural metal on Earth, exceeded only by aluminum, iron, and magnesium. Workable mineral deposits are dispersed worldwide and include sites in Australia, the United States, Canada, South Africa, Sierra Leone, Ukraine, Russia, Norway, Malaysia, and several other countries.

How to find titanium ore

The predominate minerals are rutile, which is about 95 percent titanium dioxide (TiO2), and ilmenite (FeTiO3), which contains 50 to 65 percent TiO2. A third mineral, leucoxene, is an alteration of ilmenite from which a portion of the iron has been naturally leached. It has no specific titanium content. Titanium minerals occur in alluvial and volcanic formations. Deposits usually contain between 3 and 12 percent heavy minerals, consisting of ilmenite, rutile, leucoxene, zircon, and monazite.

Mining and concentrating

Although workable known reserves of rutile are diminishing, ilmenite deposits are abundant. Typical mining is by open pit. A suction bucket wheel on a floating dredge supplies a mineral-rich sand to a set of screens called trommels, which remove unwanted materials.

Typically, the minerals are separated from waste material by gravity separation in a wet spiral concentrator. The resulting concentrates are separated by passing them through a complex series of electrostatic, magnetic, and gravity equipment.

Titanium is the 9th most common elements on the planet. It is found in both oxide and silicate minerals. The earth’s crust is 90% silicate with titanium present in
concentrations of between 0 and 1%. In such low concentrations it is not economical to extract. Titanium’s oxides meanwhile have concentrations between 15 and >95%. Those with above 25% are the best sources for production. Of titanium’s oxides rutile (Ti02) and ilmenite (FeTiO3) have the highest concentrations and are the world’s primary commercial titanium oxides.

Titanium can be mined from intrusive crystalline rocks, weathered rock and unconsolidated sediment. Half of all Titanium mined comes from unconsolidated sediments known as shoreline placer deposits. Placers are alluvial deposits formed by rivers as they reach the sea. Suspended sediments have different densities known as specific gravities. A river will deposit different sediments as its speed fluctuates, forming separate layers of sediment. Titanium’s ores, ilmenite and rutile are both found in placers worldwide.

How are Rutile and Ilmenite Formed?

Rutile has traditionally been the primary input in the manufacture of Titanium metal. Its name comes from the Latin rutilus meaning red. Its deep red colour is caused by iron impurities in its lattice. Rutile is formed under high pressures and temperatures as an accessory mineral in metamorphic rocks like eclogite. It is not economical to mine rutile from primary rock so it is recovered from weathered deposits in mineral sands.

Sierra Leone is the world’s largest exporter of rutile with among the world’s largest natural deposits of rutile. Important sites include Gbangbama, Rotifunk, Sembehun and Kambia. Titanium ores are Sierra Leone’s second largest export after diamonds and play an important part in the country’s recovery in the wake of its civil war.

The ore ilmenite is much more abundant than rutile. It is formed in magma chambers in intrusive rocks like nortite, anothosite and gabbro. Ilmenite solidifies at a much lower temperature than other minerals. This causes it to sink to the bottom of the chamber as it cools. This process known as “magmatic segregation” takes hundreds of years and causes distinct layers of minerals to be formed. Unlike rutile which is an accessory mineral these layers of ilmenite are considered primary deposits.

Ilmenite can be mined from both layered intrusive deposits and heavy mineral deposits. It is often found alongside rutile in heavy mineral deposits. Ilmenite is used to make titanium dioxide
pigment or it can be processed into feedstock that can be used in the manufacture of titanium. This has become more common as viable rutile deposits become increasingly scarce. South Africa and Australia are among the world’s largest producer of Ilmenite, each extracting over a million metric tonnes per year.

The Mining of titanium from intrusive rock is restricted to ilmenite and its weathered derivative leucoxene. The largest opencast ilmenite mine is Tellnes in Norway’s municipality of Sokndal.

Mining of Titanium Placer Deposits

Placer deposit mining is either done as a wet dredge or dry mining operation. The height of the water table where the deposit is found dictates which method is required.

Wet Dredge Mining of Titanium

In wet dredge mining, an artificial pond is created by digging below the water table. Some operations fill mining ponds with water pumps. A suction bucket wheel attached to a floating dredge is used to remove heavy mineral sediment from the ground. Sediment is then concentrated by passing it through a set of inclined cylindrical trommel screens, as these rotate the material that is too small for processing falls through the screens.

The particles that make it this far are then sorted by a spiral concentrator, a chute sorts particles suspended in water based on their size and density. They are flushed down the chute with water. The high-density particles stay closest to the inside of the spiral chutes cross-section with the lower density particles on the outside edge. The sorted sediments are then collected in separate containers the high-density ores separated from the much lower density silicates which make up 98 of the excavated sediment.

Dry Mining of Ilmenite and Rutile

Dry mining meanwhile is carried out with conventional earth moving plant including excavators, scrapers, loaders and bulldozers. Like wet dredging, the sediments from dry mining also need to be concentrated this is the same as the above process but is done without water in the spiral concentrator.

After the minerals have been concentrated they are put through the feed preparation plant where they are cleaned with attrition scrubbers and subjected to additional gravity concentration before undergoing froth flotation which can remove sulphides or other local unwanted sediment.

The last step is the dry mill, where a combination of magnetic and electrostatic separation is used to improve the quality of the ore. Titanium’s ores ilmenite and rutile are conductive because of their iron content and can be easily separated from zircon and unwanted silicates. After the dry mill, the ore is ready for export.

How to find titanium ore

There are a great many naturally occurring ores in Dyson Sphere Program, but one of the more elusive is Titanium. This strong and valuable metal is required in bulk to progress beyond the early-game, but many new players are struggling to find any. This Dyson Sphere Program Titanium guide will explain exactly how to get your hands on huge quantities of Titanium Ore, as well as what to do with it once you have it.

Dyson Sphere Program Titanium overview

Titanium is likely to be one of your major bottlenecks in Dyson Sphere Program for a short time. You can progress to the point of automating both blue and red Matrix cubes without using a single atom of Titanium, but if you want to get any further than that, you’ll need to figure out how to get lots of Titanium as soon as possible.

Titanium is used in the construction of every kind of Matrix Cube beyond red, and it’s also required to construct things like Mk3 Assemblers, Logistics Stations, Particle Colliders, late-game power grid structures, and a host of component parts. Simply put, it’s a very important material, without which you cannot hope to reach the mid-game, let alone the late-game.

Where to find Titanium in Dyson Sphere Program

Titanium is not nearly as ubiquitous a resource as starting ores such as Iron, Copper, Stone, and Coal. In fact, you may have noticed that there are no such large ore patches of Titanium on your starting planet. This is true no matter what starting seed you pick.

You can find small amounts of Titanium Ore by deconstructing the largest rocks dotted about your planet, but they’ll only give you a tiny amount. The key to obtaining lots of Titanium is to head to a different planet.

In order to head off-world for the first time, you’ll need to research Drive Engine Level 2. It’s found in the Upgrades panel rather than the normal Tech Tree, and it will unlock the Mecha Sail ability, which will allow you to fly beyond the atmosphere of your home planet, and take your first steps towards forging your own interplanetary mega-factory.

It’ll take some time to reach that tech, but in the meantime you’ll be able to see where you need to go to get Titanium. Once you’ve unlocked the early-game Universe Exploration Level 2 Upgrade, you’ll be able to click on each planet in your star system in the Starmap (hotkey “V”) and check the resource stats on the right-hand side to see which planet(s) contain naturally occurring Titanium Ore.

Once you reach a planet that contains Titanium you’ll need to set up some power generation, mining machines, and smelters to turn the Titanium Ore into Titanium Ingots. But after that you’ll likely want to send that Titanium back home. If you want to avoid using your mech to manually transport this valuable cargo, you’ll need to use your first stacks of Titanium to craft your first Logistics Stations, which will allow you to forge new networks of interplanetary transportation.

We’ll cover Logistics Stations in another guide, so keep an eye out for that.

That’s a wrap on this Dyson Sphere Program Titanium guide, so hopefully your questions have been answered. If you need a bit of help reaching this point in your game, why not check out our Dyson Sphere Program tips and tricks page?

How to find titanium ore

Platinum and Titanium ores are the next tiers of minerals you need to get for completing requests and making upgrades. They are hard to obtain because of their absurdly low drop rate. Thankfully, they are not needed in high amounts. This guide will teach you the best way on how to get platinum and titanium in Harvest Moon One World.

Upgrading Your Harvesting Tools

How to find titanium ore

Firstly, you need to upgrade your hammer to be able to get platinum ores from mines. If you have gone through the mines, you would see orange crystals that you break for ores and gems. Smashing these orange crystals can get you titanium ores at an extremely low rate that is not even worth doing.

However, if you have gone past floor 20, you will see a ton of silver crystals that are harder to break. These can be mined by upgrading your hammer to the next tier. Even then, it takes 2-3 hits before breaking one silver crystal and you might end up getting silver and gold ores from these as well.

If you need to know how to upgrade your tools first, go to the first mine and talk to the miner (Dva) to get the request that unlocks the upgrade recipe. Complete the request and use silver to upgrade your hammer before adventuring to floors 21 and above in the mines.

Best Mine to Get Platinum and Titanium

How to find titanium ore

The best mine to go for is the one in Lebkuchen. While it will be hard to traverse to floor 21, it is the most efficient route. This is because orange crystals here can drop titanium but at a low rate. There are fewer glass and crystals while adding more rare gems like emerald, sapphire, ruby gemstones.

If you want to look for platinum and titanium ores exclusively, the Lebkuchen mine is the best location. However, you need to prepare for a long grind as these floors are vaster and contain harder crystals or minerals to break.

Most of these are used to fulfill requests that give great rewards. I noticed these requests only show up when you have finished the story in Salmiakki. Kirsi usually asks for these especially rubies. They are also used for some upgrades and it is also Samantha’s favorite gift.

If you want to improve your relationship with Samantha, farm these and refine them. You will need to unlock the refining of rare ores by talking to the miner outside Pastilla’s mine. Refine these gems before giving them to Samantha.

What Are Platinum and Titanium Used For?

While master harvester and farming tools are upgraded with silver, platinum and titanium are used to unlock inventions from Doc Jr. They are also needed for upgrading your house, animal barn, and more significant upgrades. It is best to have these in stock just in case the Doc calls and you can get the latest invention immediately.

Tips and Tricks to Farm Rare Ores

The mines are incredibly large as you reach floor 21. Each floor might eat up 1-4 stamina hearts before getting to the next floor. It is best to increase your stamina first before going to the mines. You can also bring a ton of food to recover stamina. Fried eggs are the best choice as they are easy to get if you know how to get livestock.

I found it more efficient to just drop down a floor and use more cooked meals to recover. If you have an unlimited stock of food to recover stamina, time will be your main problem. There are times where I start mining floor 21 at 10 am and only end up on floor 28 at 2 am.

If you destroy a crystal and you see a crack under it after it disappears, recover enough stamina and step on it. This will move you to the next floor. If the ladder shows up, take it immediately before farming every single crystal on the floor. This method is far more efficient.

All the ores drop in this area so it will take up a ton of your space. Make sure you have increased your bag space and have room for at least 12 different items. You will be farming bronze, iron, gold, silver, titanium, platinum, and all the other gems. These will take at least half a page of your inventory space. Store your unnecessary items before going to the mine when you are planning to go the whole day farming.

Conclusion

These ores are hard to find even on high floors. When you start farming, make sure you are prepared and farm as many ores and gems as you can. It is better to have plenty of these in stock rather than going back and forth to farm ores. Collecting Harvest Wisps for seeds will be your main goal on most days when you reach the tail end of the game.

Black Titanium is at the pinnacle of the rarity pyramid when it comes to high-tier crafting components. Here’s how to find it and how to use it!

There are some materials that are harder to come across than others and in Fallout 76, and Black Titanium is at the pinnacle of the rarity pyramid when it comes to high-tier crafting components. It comes in 3 forms: Black Titanium, Black Titanium Scrap, and Black Titanium Ore; all of which are linked.

Black Titanium is used primarily as a major component in the Excavator Power Armor while Black Titanium Scrap is crucial to repairing it as well as crafting Cultist Blades. The most common way to find these dark metal resources is in its Black Titanium Ore form, or as scrap.

Updated on September 13, 2021, by Reyadh Rahaman: Finding the variants of Black Titanium will take some exploring, so gamers will have to venture out into the Appalachian wastelands to obtain this rare resource. As with farming anything in Fallout 76, players will find that the most efficient method of seeking out this precious metal is to locate a few spots and means of gathering Black Titanium, in one form or another, and cycling between them all.

This is to allow enemies and resources time to respawn, therefore, a well-planned route can save adventurers a lot of time and effort so that they can get back to crafting and doing battle with hideous mutants and hostile gangs.

Where To Find Black Titanium, Black Titanium Scrap, & Black Titanium Ore

Where To Find Black Titanium

At any kind of workbench, players can break down High Int Rocks (yields 2 Black Titanium) and Miner Suit Scraps (yields 1 Black Titanium) for intact Black Titanium. The former can only be obtained from Dr. Bethy Mangano near Clarksburg, however, the relatively more common Miner Suit Scrap can be dropped by Mole Miner enemies, which can be found in many locations.

Here are the best locations to find, defeat, and loot Mole Miners for their Miner Suit Scraps:

  • South Cutthroat camp
  • Monongah power plant
  • Uncanny Caverns
  • Top of the World
  • Mount Blair
  • The Rusty Pick
  • Blackwater Mine
  • Big Bend Tunnel West

Tips For Taking Down Mole Miners

These disgusting little mutants are what happened to a bunch of humans who were warped by radiation in or around underground locations in Appalachia.

They tend to hang out in large groups, sometimes accompanied by naked mole-rat enemies, and will attack players as a deadly posse. They can wield powerful ranged weapons such as Missile Launchers, Shotguns, and more, so they pose a great threat to those who stumble into their territory unprepared.

The best tactic to take them down is to bring some allies for back-up, as confrontations with this horde of horrid underground dwellers usually evolve into full-scale firefights. An alternative method is to simply level up a lot before strolling into a Mole Miner residence in a low-level area.

Where To Find Black Titanium Scrap

Black Titanium Ore can be crafted into Black Titanium Scrap at a chemistry station, though the ratio is a bit expensive. It takes 4 Acid and 3 Black Titanium Ore in order to craft 2 Black Titanium Scrap. However, this scrap can also be found in the wild, albeit in dangerous areas.

Black Titanium Scrap can be looted from the bodies of Deathclaws, found on Deathclaw Island, and in the

Abandoned Waste Dump.

Where To Find Black Titanium Ore

For the most part, players will need to stumble across a vein of this rare metal naturally while exploring Appalachia, however, a reliable mine of Black Titanium Ore can be found near the Gorge Junkyard workshop. Furthermore, Black Titanium Ore can be acquired from miner maps bought from U-Mine-It! vending machines, The Rusty Pick, and near the entrance of the Kanawha Nuka-Cola plant.

What Black Titanium Is Used To Craft & Repair

There are only 2 things crafted and repaired with Black Titanium: Excavator Power Armor and Cultist Blades. The former is the most expensive, as each of the 6 pieces for the power armor needs a lot of Black Titanium.

For level 25 Excavator Power Armor, players will need 6 Black Titanium each (total of 36); for level 35 Excavator Power Armor, one will need 7 for each piece (total of 42); and for the highest-rank Excavator Power Armor at level 45, adventurers will need 9 Black Titanium for each part of the suit (total of 54).

Effects Of The Excavator Power Armor

  • Grants 42% Damage Reduction
  • Grants 90% Rad Reduction
  • Grants +100 carry weight
  • Grants an x4 ore mining bonus

Excavator Power Armor Resistance Statistics

Level Damage Resistance (Physical Damage) Energy Resistance Radiation Resistance
25 163 163 234
35 201 201 300
45 240 240 366

The Cultist Blade is much cheaper to make and can be a decent melee weapon for certain players. To craft one of these jagged swords, gamers will need 6 Black Titanium Scrap (in addition to the other components).

How to find titanium ore

In Dyson Sphere Program, players need to build their intergalactic factory. Building an efficient factory is quite a difficult task and they need to explore the vast space and gather a variety of resources. One of the most vital resources in the game is titanium. Here is all you need to know about getting titanium in Dyson Sphere Program.

What is the use of titanium in Dyson Sphere Program?

Titanium is used for a wide array of things, including building the Interstellar Logistics Systems. The Interstellar Logistic Station is used to transfer cargo from one planet to the other, and without it, you will have to transport cargo manually which is quite a hectic task. Apart from that, titanium is also used to make yellow matrix cubes, which is a key element in producing a wide range of tech.

How to get titanium in Dyson Sphere Program

Now that you know how vital titanium is in Dyson Sphere Program, you must be wondering how you can gather enough of this resource. To obtain titanium in Dyson Sphere Program, players need to first collect titanium ores. Ores are a critical resource in Dyson Sphere Program, and it’s quite difficult to progress further in early game without some of these ores.

Unlike other ores, titanium is quite rare in the game, and in all likelihood, your planet won’t have an abundance of titanium. So the only way to gather large amounts of titanium is by traveling to other planets.

How to find titanium oreUniverse Exploration allows you to view the resources on your planet

To be able to travel different planets, you need to ensure you have Mecha Sail ability. The Mecha Sail ability can be unlocked after upgrading your Drive Engine to Level 2. You can learn more about traveling to other planets in our guide here. Once you have Drive Engine Level 2, you need to have the Universe Exploration upgrade. This upgrade shows the resources on your planet, as well as other planets.

Once you have the Universe Exploration Level 2 upgrade, all you need to do is open the Starmap using the V key on the keyboard and search for planets with abundance of titanium ore. Simply travel to a planet which has a decent amount of titanium ore and then you are all set to to mine titanium.

How to find titanium oreChoose a planet with large volume of Titanium ore reserves

After reaching the planet, you need to set up a Mining Outpost to harvest titanium ore. Place the Mining Outpost in front of the resource node in such a way that it covers as many resource nodes as possible to start harvesting titanium. A mining machine will mine 0.5 ore per second per node, so if you place multiple mining machines, the output will increase.

How to find titanium oreYou can use multiple mining machines to maximize output

Once you have collected enough titanium, you can head back to your planet and use the titanium to craft a wide variety of elements in the game. That being said, it is highly recommended that you start off by making the Interstellar Logistics Station given how useful it is.

Crafting might not be the hot trend it was a few years ago, but that doesn’t mean games will stop making you collect a load of seemingly useless tat to clutter up your bags. In Assassins Creed Valhalla, you’ll be grappling with bags full of fabric, chunks of titanium, iron, and leather, all while trying to invade England and find allies.

Thankfully, while your inventory is stuffed with runes, trinkets and trade goods, amongst all of that, you’ll only need those handful of different items to upgrade your equipment to continue your quest.

In Assassins Creed Valhalla, you’ll come across four main crafting materials. These are leather, iron ore, fabric, and titanium, and are used to upgrade all of your gear along the upgrade track.

This includes both your armour and weapons, as well as your arrow quiver and healing pouch, so you might have to make some tough choices and decide what is more important to you when it comes time to upgrade.

You can upgrade your equipment whenever you want from the menu screen. Simply hover the cursor over the item in your inventory that you want to upgrade and hold down the appropriate button.

You’ll see how many crafting materials it will consume, and how it will affect the stats, even if you don’t have enough on you at the time, so you can calculate how much you’ll need.

Leather and iron ore are the most common upgrade materials you’ll come across, but also the ones you’ll need the most of, and are used to upgrade lower grade weapons and armour while fabric and titanium, unsurprisingly, are used when upgrading higher tier weapons and armour.

These later upgrades will still need both iron ore and leather though, so don’t forget to collect them when possible.

Where can you find crafting materials in Assassins Creed Valhalla?

Leather and Iron Ore

Leather and iron ore is plentiful in England and Norway, and you’ll be able to find them both in the wilderness and in the cities. Leather can be found in very small quantities from hunting wild animals, such as deer and foxes as well as the more hostile creatures like wolves and wild boar. The effort involved in this for the return is definitely not worth it though.

Meanwhile, iron ore can be found in the glistening outcrops of stone that can be smashed open with a melee attack.

You can also find leather and iron ore in the smaller chests scattered across the map. These chests won’t be marked as treasure on the regions map, but they will faintly glow gold when you zoom in.

You can also spot their faint glow through walls and obstacles in person with your Odin Vision. You get much more per chest than you would collecting it yourself, so it’s definitely worth stopping to loot chests.

However, if all else fails you can buy iron ore and leather from traders – either in Ravensthorpe or in the wider world – once you’ve found the resource yourself, which will probably be from the very beginning of the game. The best way to stock up on the iron and leather you will need for the majority of upgrades is to buy the maximum amount you can from shops.

Because of the sheer amount you need for later upgrades, it’s almost worth ducking into a merchant every time you pass to clear out their stock before it recharges.

Titanium

You’ll very rarely come across titanium in the wild, but this is always in small quantities.

More reliably, you can also find titanium in treasure chests that contain nickel or tungsten ingots.

These will appear on your map as golden treasure orbs, or stacks of ingots if you get close enough. Nickel ingots are found in the mid-regions of the game. East Angila will provide them sometimes, while areas like Sciropescire and beyond will have Nickel in more or less every ingot marker.

Tungsten ingots can be found in the highest level regions of the game, from Eurvicscire and beyond.

You can also buy titanium in limited amounts from traders once you’ve gathered some yourself. And again, this is the most efficient way to pick it up.

Fabric

Finally, fabric is the only upgrade resource that cannot be found in the wild or bought from traders, but you can find it amongst caches of iron ore and leather in the smaller chests in the more dangerous regions of England.

Areas like Oxenefordscire and beyond will start to produce fabric in more or less every smaller chest, alongside hoards iron ore and leather.
