The best locations to farm Starmetal Ore in New World

Acquiring Starmetal will undoubtedly take you off the beaten track. Here's the routes we think will serve you best.

In-and-out in Weaver's Fen

This route is relatively quick. It has you leave Weaver's Fen via the west exit and head along the path to the Vega Bridge. Follow it southwest collecting the nodes as you go.

A ridge west of Angler's Doom houses the remaining nodes.

Touring Upper Brightwood

There's three or four good clusters of Starmetal in Brightwood. Start at the Fort Alazar Shrine and make your way south, picking up the first nodes around Fort Alazar itself. To the southeast is a small pond and a ridge with some more nodes. 

Heading east, pass Chancellor's Torment for a a few more nodes, then circle clockwise for more around Cathedral de Vasquez. The final few nodes can be found aroud Gren's Place.

The Great Cleave

A higher-level zone, this tour around the region should net you plenty of nodes. 

Start by fast travelling into Tempest Valley Shrine. Generally, you'll want to head northwest along the valley, with nodes on each side.

The long route

This last route we've marked out for you, given it spans two whole territories. 

Start at the New Balefire Shrine in the northeast of Mourningdale, and follow the route marked southwards, ending just northeast of the Restless Shore settlement.
