Getting Pure Gold Ore on Svartalfheim is actually fairly easy. Cluttered on the whole map you can find golden shiny nodes on the ground. If you farm these with at least metal tools, then you have the chance of getting pure gold ore. For now gold ore will smelt into scrap metal ingots but that might be changed in the future. The good thing is here that it smelts into metal ingots 1:1.

Changes to this from October 22nd: Gold ore will now smelt 1:1 into gold ingots when used in a Dwarven Forge. When used in a normal forge, it will smelt to metal 2:1. So the Dwarven Forge is the better choice.

To get Mihtril Ingots you have to smelt Mithril in a Dwarven Forge. You can find them cluttered all over the map in Dwarf Fortresses or ruins. The forges fuel ist energy crystal. It will turn Mithril to Mithril Ingots. Once you add Obsidian Flux to it, it will turn into Mithril Alloy. Make sure to bring enough material.

Dwarven forge

To fully use the power of the Dwarven Forge since the Energy Crystal powers it for a while, bring also Metal and Gold to smelt it there faster. It works like an early Industrial Forge.

Changes from October 22nd: The Forge can now only smelt the special resources and Metal and Wood cannot be added any more. Mithril and Mithril Alloy need to be “crafted” manually rather that auto smelting. Gold still smelts automatic.

The Forge is now also locked for everyone but the person who started the smelting process.

Mihtril Alloy is needed to start the Bossfights. You craft the Broodmother Gem with 10 Alloy and 3 Artifacts, so make sure to kill a lot of Alphas, to qualify for the Bossfights quicker.
