If you have been slacking off on your routing mining sessions this might be an unlucky time for you as Ores have increased value exponentially in Genshin Impact Version 3.0– and not just in Sumeru either. Genshin Impact has several kinds of Ores starting from basic Forging Ores that you can use at the Blacksmith’s and then there are special Local Specialty Ores like Cor Lapis and Noctilucous Jade which are treated as rare regional specialities usually used as ascension materials for weapons and characters.

Why Forging Ores are Valuable in Genshin Impact Version 3.0

Before, the only primary use of ores was for forging weapons and other in-game gadgets. In Version 3.0, ores can do more than just that. The Forging Ores in Genshin are as follows and they are ranked according to their overall rarity in ascending order:

  1. Iron Chunk
  2. White Iron Chunk
  3. Crystal Chunk
  4. Magical Crystal Chunk
  5. Amethyst Lump (only available in Inazuma)
  6. Starsilver (only available in Dragonspine)

Based on the above list, we recommend you go back to your regular mining routines as now in Version 3.0, you can use the above ores to get Wood of the required variant for your Teapot Furnishings and you can use it to speed up the Processing of certain raw food materials in cooking.

In your Teapot’s “Create Furnishing” section you can now access a new Wood section where all the Wood variants you’ve farmed are listed. Here you can obtain a maximum of 50 units of each Wood variant you want per week. This saves a lot of time players had to spend grinding Wood before. When you open the Cooking menu and want to make processed foods like Bacon, Ham, Cream, Jam and so on, you can speed up the processing time by sacrificing ores. 

Overall it’s a quality of life change and players with tons of ores can avail of it instead of letting it all sit in your inventories like that. This also gives both newer players and veterans to go back to farming ores now that they have more uses.

As an English Masters graduate, I always dreamt of becoming a writer as a profession. Alas! I was led astray by anime and gaming. I enjoy open-world RPGs that encourage exploration with easy but flashy combat along the way. Art and aesthetics also matter immensely to me so even in games my characters tend to stare off into space. If I’m not gaming or watching anime I’m probably just asleep and dreaming.
