Baldur’s Gate 3 (BG3) Ingots Guide

Baldur’s Gate 3 is a deep and immersive tactical RPG experience with an engaging storyline, complex character relationships, and deep combat mechanics. Plus, of course, there are loads of shiny items for us to loot! Some of these, such as armor and weapons, have obvious uses while ingredients, and handily placed into pouches to use later. But not all items giveaway their use so easily. So if you’ve come across, or are looking to find, some metal ingots, read on for my BG3 Ingots guide. 

Where to find Ingots in Baldur’s Gate 3

Ingots can be found throughout Baldur’s Gate 3. I’ve come across them in random chests and boxes across the map and in dungeons, as well as being loot from creatures, but they’re most commonly found in treasure chests. At the time of writing you can find three different types: Bronze Ingots, Silver Ingots, and Gold Ingots.

There isn’t currently a documented use for any type of ingot in the game. However, as Baldur’s Gate 3 is still evolving through patches and players are finding out all kinds of cool little tricks as we go, that is not to say there isn’t a use. Some players have speculated that ingots will be usable to either make or improve equipment such as armor, but this is unsubstantiated.

What to do with ingots in BG3

If you’re short of funds in Baldur’s Gate 3 and have some ingots in your camp or inventory, they are a good source of income from vendors:

  • Bronze Ingot: 20 gold
  • Silver Ingot: 50 gold
  • Gold Ingot: 100 gold

However, if you’re not short of cash, there seems no harm in hoarding them just in case they come in useful later (I’ve certainly kept most of mine). But if you ever need a cash injection, I’d suggest selling as many as you need to get the items that will improve your party.
