Is there an area that has a lot of iron ore? I'm working on building up my armorsmith level and iron is the next step.

    Have you tried googling at all...? There are several sites like this one: pwniversity.com/gw2/farming/iron-ore Commented Jan 14, 2016 at 11:54

    @AmosM.Carpenter You should turn that into an answer and include the images for the most profitable of the routes shown.

  • @Brian: I considered that, but, without wanting to sound elitist, I think it's reasonable to expect the OP to do at least a minimal amount of research. If you can google and find the answer to your question within a minute, should it really be a question on an SE site? Commented Jan 14, 2016 at 22:46

    @AmosM.Carpenter Yes it absolutely should. Users should come to Arqade to find answers on gaming questions. Keeping a great collection of questions and answers is key to the site.

  • @DavidYell: I agree to some extent, but the line has to be drawn at some level of triviality, wouldn't you say? I don't see the value of answering with a link (which may not be up anymore in a year or two), and I don't want to invest time in writing a more thorough answer. Note I didn't down-vote the question, but I'm not going to answer it either if it's just a matter of googling (or in the case of GW2, looking it up on the wiki). Hence my comment - I'm sure you've noticed the lack of upvotes on the question, so I think I'm not alone with my opinion, but feel free to answer if you want. Commented Jan 29, 2016 at 11:33

The best place by far is in Brisband wildlands at Gallowfields Waypoint, here is the wp link to it [&BGMAAAA=]

First of all, there is a rich iron node just by the wp, and a lot more nodes are scattered in the area. You can easily get 20-30 iron ores from one run around a small area.

Just beware to jump down the right place, as the rich ore is down in a cliff, and falling all the way down will kill you.

I would go to the Iron Marches. The maps in Ascalon that are Charr based have a lot of iron.

If you go to this site gw2timer.com/?page=Map&section=Resource and select iron and "show possible nodes" you will get a good map of where to start. This map is zoomable.

Guild Gathering Bonus will give you %15 bonus chance to harvest more, so will Guild Hero Banners.
