While at the Northern and Southern plains you will encounter a lot of shades so be ready to fight your way through. Make sure you kill all of them as they will also drop some Iron ore. You can also buy iron ore from the shop at Junk heap for 1000 gold per Iron ore. This might sound cheap but considering the quantity needed, it’s a rather expensive deal. Keeping in mind the price, it would be better if you farm it instead of buying.
