After completing the storyline in Dragon Quest Builders 2, the player receives a recipe that requires “Orichalcum” but is left confused as to where to find it. At the end of the game, two additional Explorer Islands are added to the player’s travel map which is where they would have to look. Furthermore, you would have to collect 3,000 Gratitude on the Island of Awakening. This would enable you to unlock Defiled Island which is the location for the Orichalcum Ore.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 Orichalcum Ore
Moving around aimlessly will not bear any fruit, as this is a very well-hidden object in the game.
The Explorer Island gets randomized each time around yet identifiable to the player due to the unique features that they bear, such as the humongous poison lake in the Defiled Island!
Getting to the Orichalcum Ore in Dragon Quest Builders 2 involves trusting your gamer-sense and exploring well the seemingly discreet objects and this pool is where you will find the ore.
Here, we need to drain the pool. For that, you can use the Bottomless Pot and begin removing the purple liquid from an end, moving towards the other side as the length is greater than the width, all the while keeping an eye out for a mineral/rock formation which would be bearing the ore in its middle.
Patience is the key in the process, as it could take a while and you might not even need to drain the whole pool. Phew!
After the Orichalcum vein appears, mine it with your hammer just as you would any other mineral and you could be on your merry way.
This process of extracting the Orichalcum Ore by repetition can seem tedious and loathsome by the majority of players but for now, this seems to be the only way.
Luckily enough, the recipes that require this ore need not refined ingots so that would save us some time!
