Where to find Infernal Iron in BG3

Infernal Iron can be found in unassuming chests and caches across the world of Baldur’s Gate 3, so in this section, we will point you to the first known spot and update the guide with more Infernal Iron locations.


How to use Infernal Iron in BG3

You will need Infernal Iron during Karlach’s quest in Act 2, when you’ll be tasked with finding Dammon, the tiefling smith you first meet at the refugee camp at Emerald Grove in Act 1. When you find him, he will forge a set of heavy armor for you, if you have Infernal Iron in your inventory.

Dammon will make you a Flawed Helldusk Armour, if you have Infernal Iron.

During Karlach’s quest, Dammon will use the metal to repair the overheating Infernal engine inside Karlach’s body. She needs to be in your party in order to do this. Of course, if you manage to kill her earlier in your playthrough, this use of the Infernal Iron will not be available.

Even if you have nothing else to do with Infernal Iron, it is still a very valuable material that you could sell to merchants for gold or barter for other items.
