Lodestone is found and mined in the wilds of New World.
A rock with a fiery glow to them, they are found in a handful of small clusters across Aeternum.
Here's what you'll need and where the best areas are to find Lodestone in New World.
What do you need Lodestone for in New World?
Used in Stonecutting, mining Lodestone will give you a tier IV resource that is highly sought after for a handful of crucial recipes.
It can be refined into two objects, Lodestone Brick and Obsidian Voidstone. Both are used in Town Projects and the various Tuning Orbs that grant access to Expeditions.
The Voidstone is also used in the creation of Runestones, which are needed for a pair of Legendary weapons and the two highest-level Tuning Orbs.
In order to mine Lodestone, you'll need a Mining Pickaxe. There's a level requirement of 105 to mine them, and you'll be able to track Lodestone nodes from Mining Skill Lv. 155.
A refiining skill that will provide you with stone, gems and other key resources for crafting, here's all you need to know about Stonecutting in Amazon's New World.
The best locations to farm Lodestone in New World
We've selected four key pockets we think are the best for farming Lodestone.
Perform a sweeping S-shaped path west from the Cutlass Keys settlement, roughly following the path past the Brighteye Den and Rothoard Hollow, picking up nodes as you go.
Before you cross the water, swing southeast along the ridge past the Yafda Steps. Your journey is complete just after the Gefyra Bridge.
There are plenty of nodes in Restless Shore, across the islets that make up the southern part of the territory.
There are a few in the far northeast too, in the mountains around Fort Damnation and on the island to the east.
You'll find plenty of nodes up in the northwest of Brightwood.
Fast travel into the Wolfbough Shrine and circle in a northeast direction to sweep up all the nodes.
The northern part of Great Cleave also houses several nodes, and is perhaps one of the best areas to farm Lodestone quickly.
Travel into the Tempest Valley Shrine, head northeast to the Tundramouth Burrow, and then follow the ridge northwest to Svikin's Stand, collecting Lodestone as you go.
Finally, for those who want a quick in-and-out, there's a nice circle of nodes in Weaver's Fen.
You can approach this from either the Settlement in the south or Mallory's Refuge in the northwest, the distance to the cluster is roughly equal.
It's found just after the Vega Bridge, in-between Fenton Hamlet and Clawpoint Ruins.
