Mining resources can be timely, especially if you want to craft tools, furniture, decor items, and other craftable stations. It can also be time-consuming if you don't know where in Kilima Village to find the nodes to begin mining them to obtain various ores and other resources.
Copper is one of the ores you can mine from nodes, and they’re relatively easy to look out for, but where can you find plenty of copper nodes? We’ve consulted the map to determine how to find copper ores and get copper bars in Palia.
How To Get & Use Copper Ores In Palia?
Copper ores are one of the primary crafting materials needed in Palia, especially as it requires you to use Mining and Furniture Making skills. Copper ores are mainly acquired when mining rock nodes, from small to large nodes, influencing the amount of ores you can obtain.
Additionally, it’s worth mentioning that you can also obtain stone, flint, and silver ores from mining these rock nodes. As for the best mining locations to acquire copper ores, the first locations are surrounding Fisherman’s Lagoon and the Mayor's house, where you’ll find small and medium-sized nodes, which can be a great spot to start or end farming runs with some fishing at the docks.
Another great location for copper ores is farther from Fisherman’s Lagoon, heading towards Remembrance Beach. It’s here where more medium-sized rock nodes tend to spawn, alongside a handful of clay nodes which we can advise farming both nodes to get more out from farming runs.
Once you’ve gathered plenty of copper ores, how does one best utilize them in Palia? These can be gifted to online players should they request them, but mainly, these can be used for crafting furniture, decor items, various crafting stations, and, most importantly, copper bars.
