You can claim a variety of commodities and ingredients in Fire Emblem Engage to increase the resources available to your team. The most common goods to come across are various metal resources, which may be used to buy everything from cosmetic clothes to weapon upgrades. To aid in base management, this page contains information on where to find more varieties of iron, steel, and silver.
Types of Metal Materials
In Fire Emblem Engage, there are three different rarities of refining materials:
Iron is the most prevalent and may be acquired in the greatest numbers, and it will occur early in your quest, like most other Fire Emblem components. Middle-tier rarity Steel will start to show up in both main and side quests around Chapter 7. The best metal is silver, which is also the hardest to come by and only shows up in trace amounts beginning in Chapter 17 and beyond.
How to Use Iron, Steel and Silver
As early as Chapter 3, you’ll start discovering metal when exploring maps after a conflict, although you might not fully understand how these elements can be used until later.
You won’t invite a Smithy and a Clothier to join you at the Somniel until later chapters, and it’s via them that the majority of your metal usage will be put to use:
- You can improve weapons in the Smithy up to a +5 increase, giving you additional Might and Hit without suffering a weight penalty. Even lower tier weapons can be upgraded into entirely new weapons. For example, for 50 Iron, a Slim Sword can be upgraded into an Iron Sword.
- While the Divine Dragon and other characters unwind in the Somniel, you can purchase new clothing and spectacles for them at the Clothier, which will cost you other metals in addition to gold.
You can also trade metal in the Smithy for different levels, although it takes a lot of Iron to get only a little or even a single Silver. The conversion rate is displayed in the graph below:
|Metal Offered||Metal Obtained|
|1 Steel||9 Iron|
|1 Silver||90 Iron|
|11 Iron||1 Steel|
|1 Silver||9 Steel|
|110 Iron||1 Silver|
|11 Steel||1 Silver|
Iron may lose value as you progress through the game, but you may still use it to upgrade your gear by converting it to higher tiers, even though it could take longer.
Where to Get Iron, Steel and Silver
In Fire Emblem Engage, there are numerous ways to get metal, but not all of them will pay off in the same quantities, making it challenging to fully upgrade the weapons on your team as you progress through the game’s latter objectives. Because of this, it is advised that you concentrate on occasionally upgrading a select group of weapons (one per unit).
Main Chapter Rewards
The best and easiest way to gain metal quickly is to just move through the main plot chapters, as these will reward you with the most when you explore the area after winning a combat. Even finishing Paralogues will earn you a significant amount of metal on your first attempt, but successive battles on these maps will reward you far less.
The more into the story you go, the more metal you should generally anticipate to find after a battle:
|Chapter 7+||x40 – x60||x2 – x4||N/A|
|Chapter 15+||x40 – x80||x4 – x8||x2 – x4|
|Chapter 17+||x160 – x200||x8 – x12||x4|
There is a lot of metal to be acquired from these, but you should use them wisely because there are 26 chapters (not all of which may be explored after battle) and 14 important Paralogues.
Donating to Nations (Skirmish Battles Rewards)
Although it is more expensive and time-consuming than completing major tasks, there are alternative ways to gain extra metal that can add up over time. You can give to improve the prizes you receive from each of the four countries of Elyos by going to the Bulletin Board in the Somniel. Giving to advance to a new level frequently multiplies the number of objects you can discover during post-battle exploring.
Additionally, giving to Brodia will earn you exclusive reward packages. Raising it to level 2 will reward you with 10 Iron, level 3 with 3 Steel, and level 4 with 1 Silver, in addition to additional benefits.
More than any other, Brodia is the one you should try to invest in if you’re looking for more minerals, as Brodia will frequently drop more metal the more you invest to a total of 10 times the normal amount, and multiplying the amount can help out a ton — just remember to look for skirmishes taking place in those regions before starting a battle:
|Nation||Level 1 Multiplier||Level 2 Multiplier||Level 3 Multiplier||Level 4 Multiplier||Level 5 Multiplier|
Silver Ingots x7
Flea Market Purchases
You can also just buy some types of metal later on in the game if you find that searching for it in the wild is getting to be too much. This assumes that you have enough gold on hand.
When you finish Chapter 13, the Somniel’s Flea Market stall will open, allowing you to buy some ingots. At first, you can only buy a few, but as the story progresses, you’ll be able to buy more and more. Make sure you have a specific refinement or buy in mind before you spend all of your hard-earned money, especially on silver ingots, because they may be very expensive:
|Chapter||Steel (500G each)||Silver (5,000G each)|
You will receive rewards every time you return to the Somniel after a battle if you use the Farmyard Stable to choose which animals to graze, though at a considerably slower rate of accumulation.
The dogs of Elyos are unlike most animals, which provide meals with arbitrary components. You will always receive a random metal ingot, such as Iron, Steel, or even Silver, from any breed of dog you allow to graze (depending on how far you are into the story). There are five open spots in the grazing pasture and three distinct breeds of dogs, all of which seem to offer prizes at random. This indicates that upon visiting the Somniel, you can obtain 5 ingots for each resource you harvest.
