Although Iradite is a mineral, it’s different from what you mine at the Plains of Eidolon. Iradite is easy to get and found plentifully around the plains.
Use it to craft decorations, specific Warframe components and Zaws, as well as other items.
How to Farm Iradite in Warframe?
Destroy Iradite Formations which you find around the lower elevations of the Plains of Eidolon by attacking them. You can also earn Iradite as a reward for bounties.
The amount you get depends on the bounty level you pick.
Equip a speedy warframe and use it to search the plains for this mineral. A loot detecting mod like Thief’s Wit, Loot Detector or Animal Instinct will help find this resource.
Where to Farm Iradite?
You can find this mineral all over the map, although the Plains of Eidolon are especially good for finding it.
In particular, The Seethe, Er-Phryah’s Vigil, Renthi Spring, Seaside Ruin, Twin Horns, and Hek’s Stiletto are good areas to head for.
Use an Archwing for an aerial view to help you find Iradite Formations. If you use mods to enable a high level of loot finding, they will be simple to spot on the map.
Best Ways To Get Iradite
The best way to accumulate this resource is just by exploring and looking for the formations found around the plains.
Increase your level of loot detection to simplify things.
Fly around with your Archwing or explore using your warframe. Bear in mind you can’t use some loot detecting mods using the Archwing.
Try to use Gauss or Volt because the map is big and you’ll want to explore quickly.
The second method is using bounties. You can complete an objective in exchange for an Iradite reward in the Plains of Eidolon.
This can help when you’re working on other goals anyway, but might not be worth it if it takes too long.
If you can complete bounties fast, in particular the ones at a higher level, it might be a good way to farm Iradite.
Some players don’t bother with the bounties for Iradite though, and only use the Iradite formations to gather it.
Iradite Farming Tips & Tricks
- Do the level 40 to 60 bounty to yield 3, 4 or 5 Iradite. You don’t need to complete stages for this.
- Kill Tusk Thumper in the plains to farm Iradite in batches.
- Use the Animal Instinct or Thief’s Wit mod to improve your loot radar.
- Use Limbo’s Cataclysm with high efficiency and max range to help open Iradite over a big area. While in the rift, enemies cannot inflict damage. To pick it up, the Iradite must be in the Cataclysm or the player must be outside of the rift.
Nearly anywhere you explore in the Plains of Eidolon will yield Iradite Formations. You can also find them here and there when doing bounties, but using both methods might not be worth it.
It’s recommended that you stay with roaming freely to collect this resource, or simply keep an eye out when you are doing a bounty in case there is any there.
Even if you aren’t specifically looking for this mineral, wandering the plains means you will probably pick some up anyway.
