Gathering Tips[]

These are based on opinions and may not be true. These should be viewed as advice unless proven undoubtedly true. Check comments for confirmation. Results may vary.

  • Beginning a level 40-60 bounty will cause deposits to yield 3-5 Iradite. Bounty stages do not need to be completed to benefit, but the Bounty must be failed before extracting, otherwise all collected resources are forfeited.
  • Using LimboIcon272.png Limbo's Cataclysm130xDark.png Cataclysm or XakuIcon272.png Xaku's TheVastUntime130xDark.png The Vast Untime with maximum range and high efficiency will break containers and deposits.
  • Killing Tusk Thumpers in the Plains of Eidolon is a possible way to farm Iradite in batches.
  • Because the amount gained scales based on enemy level, Steel Path instances will yield ~5 Iradite per node. Invisibility can be used to gather significant quantities of Iradite quickly in this way.
