Where can you get Silver Ore in Palia?

Silver Ore is a curious crafting material in Palia as only drops from medium and large Copper Nodes.

Due to this, Silver Ore is a rarer find. Each node can drop between one to three Silver Ores, with medium nodes having a 15% chance to drop silver and large nodes having a 25% chance.

This means, your best course of action is to carve out a farming route. Although the nodes are randomly generated, they usually appear across the hills and cliff faces in Kilima Valley.

Silver Bars can be created after three hours by placing five Silver Ore into a Basic Smelter (the recipe for both can be unlocked from Hodari). Silver Bars are needed to create the following recipes:

  • Capital Chic Mirror
  • Capital Chic Round Mirror
  • Homestead Mirror
  • Industrial Mirror
  • Ranch House Mirror
  • Ravenwood Mirror
  • Ravenwood Wall Mirror
  • Consumables
  • Ore Compass

Unlike the others on this list, the Ore Compass is not a decorative furniture item but rather a tool that allows you to track rare mining nodes for 15 minutes, a worthy recipe to utilize.

Silver Ore can also be sold for 18 coins each, Silver Bars are worth 255 alternatively.
