Iradite is a resource you can only find on the Plains of Eidolon in Warframe. It will occur naturally in low-lying areas of the Plains, and you can also get it from some stage rewards while playing Bounties.
The quickest way to farm Iradite is to specifically spend a short amount of time on the Plains farming it, rather than getting distracted by other activities.
How To Farm Iradite Fast
It’s important to know where to go to find Iradite. You can find it in the following areas of the Plains of Eidolon:
- Twin Horns
- Seaside Ruin
- Hek’s Stiletto
- Er-Phryah’s Vigil
- Renthi Spring
- The Seethe
To farm Iradite fast, head for Cetus, set your group to Solo, and get the highest level Bounty from Konzu. Doing Bounties alters the level of the Plains, and the higher the level, the more resources you get from each resource node you find.
Now, the next step is up to your personal preference. If you wish you can bring a Frame like Limbo and use a high range Cataclysm to break a lot of nodes in one area rapidly. I prefer to bring a fast Frame, such as Gauss, Volt, or Nezha, equipped with an Ignis. These quicker frames allow you to run around and find lots of nodes rapidly.
You can also use a K-Drive or Archwing to travel around quickly. Archwings are a good options because you can stay airborne, using Ignis to break the Iradite clusters and then letting the Archwing vacuum suck them up.
No matter what Warframe you use, equip a loot detector mod, such as Animal Instinct or Theif’s Wit, as this will make the nodes appear on your mini-map. After that, it is a simple matter of exploring the above areas as fast as possible, breaking nodes, and picking up the Iradite. Make sure you equip Vacuum to your Sentinel as well, or a similar mod, to ensure you can pick up loot drops easily.
If you have a Smeeta Kavat, the amount you get will be affected by Charm, and if you really want to push your numbers up you can use the Resource Drop Boosters to increase how much Iradite you get as well.
Once you have enough, you can wrap up the mission and head back to the Cetus gate and Extract.
