Description[ | ]

An Iron Ingot is the result of casting iron in a Forge using a Iron Ingot Mold. There are many items that provide a source of iron and can either be scrapped to produce Iron or melted directly in a Forge. Any combination of Iron or suitable items can be used to cast an Iron Ingot provided enough iron is produced. Each Iron Ingot weighs 3.0 lb and will require the same amount to be used during casting. An Iron Ingot can also be used to craft other items.

Source[ | ]

This table represents the items currently available to use as a source of iron.

  • Any of these items can be placed into a Forge and used to cast an Iron Ingot.

Notes[ | ]

  • As of Alpha 8.2 it is possible to cast an Iron Ingot using an Iron Ingot, obviously this is pointless as in doing so you would waste both fuel and time to end up with the same thing as you started with.
