Durgan Iron Ingot is a unique crafting ingredient introduced in The White March - Part I expansion.

It is used at the White Forge in Durgan's Battery to add the unique Durgan-Refined or Durgan-Reinforced enchantment to any weapon, shield or armor.


Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.

This cast pig iron ingot has been lightly refined in preparation for eventual use in Durgan steel. Without the fire of the White Forge, it has little value.

How it works[]

Before a Durgan Iron Ingot can be used to enhance an item, it first has to be refined into a Refined Durgan Iron Ingot at the White Forge in Durgan's Battery. Depending on certain player choices during The White Forge main quest, either 3 or 4 iron ingots are needed to create one refined ingot.

Adding the Durgan-Refined or Durgan-Reinforced enchantment will not take up any free enchantment slots ("anvils") on an item.

There are altogether 36 Durgan Iron Ingots to be found throughout the whole game, 22 in The White March - Part I and 14 in The White March - Part II, respectively:
