How to make Copper Bars in Palia
To make Copper Bars in Palia, you'll need to craft the basic smelter. This is purchasable from Hodari for 100 gold after reaching Mining Level Two. While buying the recipe from Hodari in Bahari Bay, it's also worth taking a trip to nearby areas to get shells in Palia. These can be used as gifts and more.
But in order to increase your mining experience, you can break rocks using the pickaxe in and around your farm plot to harvest resources like stone and flint. This is also worth doing to make space for building a house, as you'll need many stone bricks to craft your first house in Palia.
After mining Copper Ore and placing the smelter onto your plot, you need to put Copper Ore into the basic smelter to make Copper Bars. It takes five Copper Ore to make one Copper Bar and around three seconds to craft a single Copper Bar.
Remembering that crafting works in real-time, you might find it best to make Copper Bars in batches and return to collect them later on, depending on how many you need to make.
