  • I just bought Windstad Manor and have been putting all the stuff in and I keep running out of Iron ingots and I now have no money.  Where can I go that has a lot of gold and also what NPC or location has a lot of iron ingots?  I went to Embershard Mine and only found two-three deposits so I don't know if I completely cleared the deposits in that mine shaft.  Help?

    • For iron ore check out Halted Stream Camp/Mine just north of Whiterun, it has 16 ore deposits.  Also Fort Fellhammer has a bunch. For gold ore check out Kolskeggr Mine in the reach, it has the most by far. Also the ore deposits will reset themselves to be mined again after a certain period of time, I think its like a month or couple weeks in game I can't remember. So you can always go back after a while and mine all the deposits over again. Also be sure to look around carefully inside and at the entrances of mines as you will find ore and sometimes ingots laying around in carts and stuff

    • Thanks, I actually have a good amount of gold ingots, but what I need is septim gold coins because I only have about 50 pieces from all my furnishings.

    • Hmm well there's no real easy way to get alot of gold. Some quest will reward you with a good bit like when you finish the Dark Brotherhood quest line you'll get 20 grand. One of the Nordic tombs on Solstheim, maybe White Ridge Barrow or Bloodskal Barrow can't remember, has a bunch of gold piles laying around I thinks it's a couple thousand. Really the best way to never have to worry about gold again is to complete No Stone Unturned where you find all the stones of Barenziah. Once you complete that you'll end up finding more gems than you know what to do with. Its a pain in the ass, probably the longest quest in the game. But there's a faster way: get all 3 words of the Slow Time shout, then when you find a stone, use the full shout and immediately start spamming the action button to pick it up and you will actually end up with several (or the game counts it as several). One time I got 7 stones at once doing that. Save before you try it in case it doesn't work the first time. Hope that helps!
