You’ll find plenty of Copper Ore in Harvestella’s second open area – Higan Canyon. The most likely sources will be from mining nodes scattered around the large map, and you’ll possibly find a few in a treasure chest along the way. In rare instances, a defeated enemy might even drop an ore for you, though it’s much less likely. Your best bet is to visit each mining node in Higan Canyon once a day to stock up on Copper Ore.

What Is Copper Ore Used For in Harvestella?

Besides being an ingredient in various crafted recipes, Copper Ore can be used to upgrade your party’s weapons in their early levels. With a couple of pieces of Copper Ore and some Grilla (Harvestella’s currency), you’ll be able to level up each party member’s weapons by speaking with the Smithy in Lethe Village. Don’t get your hopes up though, as it’s very likely that you’ll need more rare materials to upgrade your weapons to higher levels.
