Where to find White Iron Chunks in Genshin Impact

White iron chunks are hidden in plain sight.

White iron chunks are an important resource in Genshin Impact. They can be used to craft and upgrade weapons, usually ones slightly fancier than your standard 3-star fare. Here's where to find white iron chunks in Genshin Impact.

Where to find white iron chunks in Genshin Impact

White iron chunks are a more valuable version of iron chunks. They're found out and about in mountainous areas, as well as inside mines. If you’re struggling to find them, try searching in the following hilly areas and using your Elemental Sight:

  • Stormbearer Mountains
  • Mt. Aozang
  • South-West of Dawn Winery
  • Musk Reef

Press and hold the middle mouse button to have all ores highlighted in yellow. To mine them, hit them with a weapon. Spells don't work though - get a claymore out for the fastest mining.

You can also earn white iron chunks by doing expeditions from Whispering Woods, Dadaupa Gorge, and Yaoguang Shoal, as well as purchasing a maximum of 10 a day from Shitou in Liyue Harbor for 400 Mora apiece. For more on this, check out our page on all currencies in Genshin Impact.

What are white iron chunks useful for?

White iron chunks can be used to craft Fine Enhancement Ore, dozens of fancy furnishings, and — most importantly — weapons. The latter are great for when your pulls from Genshin Impact's wishes aren't giving you much luck. These weapons usually require a combination of a weapon prototype, some white iron chunks, and some crystal chunks. Here's a list of the currently-available weapons craftable with white iron chunks:

  • Prototype Rancour (Sword)
  • Iron Sting (Sword)
  • Prototype Crescent (Bow)
  • Compound Bow (Bow, obviously)
  • Prototype Starglitter (Polearm)
  • Crescent Pike (Polearm)
  • Prototype Archaic (Claymore)
  • Whiteblind (Claymore)
  • Prototype Amber (Catalyst)
  • Mappa Mare (Catalyst)
  • Amenoma Kageuchi (Sword)
  • Hakushin Ring (Catalyst)
  • Katsuragikiri Nagamasa (Claymore)
  • Hamayumi (Bow)
  • Kitain Cross Spear (Polearm)
