Monster Hunter World Ores are one of many components you'll need to construct weapons and armour pieces for your Hunter and Palico.

However, there are a variety of types - like Fucium Ore, Dragonite Ore and Lightcrystal - and it's not immediately clear from which areas or activities they are from in Monster Hunter World.

Elsewhere, our Monster Hunter World tips can help you decide when to farm, what to forage and what to do between hunts, and our Monster Hunter World walkthrough and guide can help with main quest and story progress.

What is ore used for in Monster Hunter World?

Ore are one of many classifications of components you'll collect as you play Monster Hunter World, and are used as a component for constructing weapons and armour pieces.

Ores are primarily sourced from Mining Outcrops, which are a crystals in each of the game's hunting areas. Simply walk up to it, press the button prompt, and forage away.

You get three ores per Mining Outcrop, and unlike previous Monster Hunter games, there's no need to have a pickaxe on you to mine them.

If you are specifically after Mining Outcrops, then remember you can use your map to locate the desired one, and click in the right stick to have your Scoutflies take you to them.

Unlike Bone Piles, there are differences between Ores - red and blue - but the good news is Ores across areas tend to be the same. Of course, they do then differ between Low Rank and High Rank.
