By
Craig Robinson

"The Adamantine Forge" iconThe Adamantine Forge is an optional location in the depths of the "Grymforge" iconGrymforge location of the "Underdark" iconUnderdark. Players can get here at the end of Act 1, and craft some very good blue-quality items using a range of moulds. However, the moulds and Mithril ore you need to craft the items are scattered around the place. So you’ll need to do some exploring. Here’s everything you need to know on the Adamantine Forge Items in Baldur’s Gate 3 and the locations of the "Mithral Ore" iconMithral Ore you need.

Mithril Ore Locations For the Adamantine Forge

(1 of 2) You can find a Mithral Ore near the Scale Mail Mould.

You can find a Mithral Ore near the Scale Mail Mould. (left), The other Mithral location is north of the Adamantine Forge. (right)

At the moment, we are only aware of two locations for Mithral Ore. The Ore is used as the material to craft the above items, and so, you can craft two items of the six above.

The locations of the Mithral Ore are as follows:

  1. Lava Pit near the Ancient Forge Waypoint
  2. Lava Pit near the Adamantine Forge.

The Ancient Forge Mithral Ore is towards the southwest side. Defeat the Ancient Guardians (where you find the "Scale Mail" iconScale Mail) and you’ll find an earthy path leading towards the lava. Follow the path down, and you’ll find the Mithral Ore deposit. Simply hit it with your weapon attacks or spells, and the ore will drop from it.

The other one is towards the Adamantine Forge itself. You will find an alternative pathway north as you travel down the broken pathway to the Forge. This leads you to another Mithral Ore location.

And there you have it, you now know how to make and craft all Adamantine Forge items in Baldur’s Gate 3. However, you are not done yet, as when you activate the Adamantine Forge, you will need to beat Grym, a very challenging boss. You must beat the boss to escape the forge after you craft your first Adamantine item. We have a dedicated boss page on the Grym boss, and we have video here if you’re interested in the fight below.
