Ingots are a type of tool in ADOM. They can be used to improve the quality of metallic items via the Smithing skill.

Ingots can only be used for items made of the corresponding metal.


Smithing is a powerful option for creating high-end equipment if the PC has all necessary equipment and spare in-game time for its extensive use. Based on the Smithing skill level of the PC, a lot of ingots are required to improve several items and/or reach practical limits of quality for chosen items. Thus, either ingots are of no consequence to the player or (s)he will be required to obtain ingots through dedicated means (see below) not related to the usual loot generation techniques.

Guaranteed/Common Sources[]

Ingots can rarely be found in the same manner as all generic loot.

The usual way to create ingots includes digging dungeon walls to obtain metallic ore which is later melted in a forge. Weaponsmiths are able to melt any metallic items into ingots of the corresponding material.

Finally, iron ingots can be formed from equipment lying on the floor subjected to high temperatures. This may happen in a variety of ways:
