Machalite Ore is an uncommon ore found in the Sandy Plains, Flooded Forest and Lava Caverns. It’s required for many weapons and armor.
“An ore that yields better metals than iron ore. Used to make machalite.”
How to Get Machalite Ore
If you only want Machalite Ore, the white mining outcrops in the Sandy Plains have the highest drop rates in our experience.
Otherwise, if you don’t need a lot of Machalite Ore, the Flooded Forest and Lava Caverns have a lower drop rate for Machalite Ore, but you can farm other ore at the same (Lightcrystals in the forest and Dragonite Ore in the caverns).
We suggest gathering exclusively from the white mining outcrops; avoid the blue ones unless they’re directly in your path.
The downside is that there are only 5 such outcrops and you can visit them all within 5 minutes. So you’ll either have to wait for the outcrops to respawn or exit the map and re-enter.
1: Go through the tunnel near the main camp and use the great wirebug at the end to launch yourself north-west. After landing, drop down from the raised ground and the first white mining outcrop is near the wall of the raised ground.
2: Head north-east, through Area 2–and into the Area 3 battleground. If you want, you can gather from the blue mining outcrop towards the east side of the Area 2 battleground. Once in Area 3, climb up the vine-covered wall to the north-east and go through the narrow crack. The second outcrop’s halfway through the tunnel.
3: Follow the tunnel to reach the lower section between areas 5 and 6. Head north into the caves. Along the way, there’s a blue mining outcrop on the left that you may as well gather from. Inside the caves, turn left and go up the raised land. The third white outcrop’s near the end.
4: Turn around and head for the wobbly rock pillar near the center of the cave. Use your wirebugs to climb up, where the fourth white mining outcrop is waiting.
5: Continue east inside the cave. Nearby on the right, there’s a blue mining outcrop on the wall. Ahead, there should be a great wirebug/jewel lily. Go past it and climb up the tall wall ahead. At the top is a tree lit up by light coming from above. The last white minecrop is close by.
We suggest gathering from all the white and blue mining outcrops away from the great pyramid. Start from the blue outcrop in Area 1, then work your way counter-clockwise, finishing in Area 10. By that point, the first outcrop should’ve respawned.
Most of the outcrops here are easy to find. However, there’s a somewhat tricky pair towards the south-east of Area 7. They’re in a small cave halfway up a cliff wall. You can either climb up from Area 7. Or you can drop down from the highlands between areas 6 and 7.
Also, there’s a blue mining outcrop on the same level as the Sub-Camp. You may want to fast-travel to the Sub-Camp to reach it quicker. You can also wiredash to the highlands between areas 6 and 7 from there.
We suggest focusing on all the white and blue mining outcrops in the underground section. That said, there are a few outcrops above ground that you should visit on your way there.
From the main camp, gather from the first three outcrops near areas 4 and 5. Once you’re done, return to Area 4 and enter the underground from there.
Now snake your way through all the outcrops in the west half. Finally, fast-travel to Sub-Camp 1 and drop down the nearby hole. From here, you can easily reach all the outcrops in the east half.
Most of the outcrops are fairly easy to find if you follow your mini-map. However, there are two sections in the east half that can be hard to find. Please refer to our Dragonite Ore page for detailed instructions.
You can also obtain Machalite Ore from fighting Low Rank Basarios.
