Ebony ingots...

    • Level   4

    I've just unlocked ebony smithing and i was wondering if anyone had any ideas for locations of ebony ingots?  I dont think ive seen any so far on my travels so any help would be much appreciated.

    Riverwood, Whiterun, Riften, and Solitude are where I bought mine.  By the time I did the rotation a couple of times I had more than enough to craft my Daedric set.  Easier than waiting for 24-48 hours at each vendor.

    Thanks, im up up to 88 on my smithing now though so i may just get it to 90 and go for the daedric armour instead :D

    Which vendors sell the ingots? I can't seem to find any of them.

    The smithing vendors.

    ^ as you get higher level higher tiers of armour/ingots spawn in shops/chests, so most likely too low a level, im roughly level 30 and saw a few ebony ingots only just start to show up in shops.

    Hey, (incase you cba to do the waiting thing at vendors) these are the places i found to mine ebony upto now... Just keep in mind that it takes 2 Ores for 1 Ingot

     

    Gloombound Mine, Southeast of Windhelm, its totally safe in here too no nasty beasty's lurking round the corners. (Best mine ive found upto now, a decent amount of ebony)

     

    Redbelly mine, in Shor's Stone to the west, Shor's Stone is North of Riften. There's was some spiders in this one i think, i know there was sommat anyway so be carefull.

    Like above poster said, Gloombound mine, I got 42 ebony ore from it, which is half (21) ingots once smelted.

    Completely random question, but I haven't played a warrior yet and haven't had any need to go mining/smithing. Once an ore is mined will it eventually respawn or is it mined for good?

    Ore's Replenish about a month after you mined them.

    Takes a full month? Yeesh, quite a bit longer than I'd hope for. Ah well, thanks for the answer.

    You can wait, and I found a little glitch to make it go faster. Press wait, and as soon as it pops up hit your guide button, you will hear the hours clicking away about 3 times faster.

    Might try that cheers. Gets a little long winded having to wait and watch the hours tick away at about 2 seconds per hour.
