How to Make Iron
By Klickzaph




Introduction

Slabs of iron can be sold to the blacksmith, or to people who need them for other reasons, like Voln. The blacksmith pays only 100, while other plays usualy pay 300-500. The highest I have ever got was 750, but I heard one guy offered 5000! It is made in the mines and can be done by a very low level player. If you can withstand kobs, then you can make iron. The map is page 8 of my "Zepath Style" maps. It is on the far left side, just past the door.

The Ingrediants

To make the iron, you need three ingredients, charcoal, ore, and oil. Sometimes these can be found in the Cruc room, where the iron is made. However, it is usually best to make it for yourself, just to be safe.


To Make Coal:

This one is probably the hardest of the three. You will need to go to the wood burner. It is on the mine map (page 8). Sometimes the wood will be lying around and you can just pick it up, other times you will need to GET WOOD untill you get the piece you want.

  1. get tinder

  2. put tinder in burner

  3. get log

  4. put log in burner

  5. get stick

  6. get stick (you need two sticks so you can start the fire like the olden days)

  7. rub stick

  8. wait (you will need to wait a while untill the fire goes out)

  9. get charcoal



To Make Ore:

The ore is made in the workface, which is at the bottom level of the area on the very left side of the map. Then go south, so you are at the workface. Then type "search workface." Easy as pie. If you haev been underground for a while then you will need to search a lot because your eyes are weak from the light.

To Make Oil:

After you go through the shadows, go down, down, north, and then search. Then get oil. It is even easier then getting ore.

The Kobold Mines, Crucible:

Usually there will be a line. Just walk in and ask, "Who is the last person in line?" Then simply state, "I am behind so-and-so." When it is your turn, follow these steps:

  1. turn valve (so it is closed)

  2. put ore in cruc (you will need to be holding the ore)

  3. put char in cruc (you will need to be holding the charcoal)

  4. east

  5. pour oil in drum (you will need to be holding the oil)

  6. pull chain

  7. pull bellows

  8. west

  9. turn valve

  10. east

  11. pull chain

  12. pull bellows

  13. pull chain

  14. pull bellows

  15. east

  16. wait till it says the slab of iron is cool enough to handle (it will take about 5 minutes)

Authors note:
This was sent to me in the mail by Lord Kiest recently, it may help out those of you that are looking for quantity:

After the "full page" paragraph in the irons cooling process if you add 4 extra ore, you get 4 slabs instead of just one!, much better I think.
