Ori and the Will of the Wisp Gorlek Ore Locations.

What are Gorlek Ores?

The main use of Gorlek Ores is to improve the surroundings of the Wellspring Glades by giving them to Grom, the Gorlek Builder.

You will also be needing all 40 of them if you want to finish the Rebuilding the Glades Side Quest and/or getting 100% completion for the Wellspring Glades map.

Most of them are well-hidden and are scattered throughout all areas in the game.

Take a look below to find where exactly they are hidden on each map.

How to get the Gorlek Ore Location Number 12 in Wellspring Glades.

Requirement(s): Firemoth’s Delight or Light Burst or Launch

You can this Ore at the hidden platform above Motay. And there are a couple of ways to get this

The easiest way is to use Light Burst then use the Bash ability so you can reach and stick to the wall at the upper-left corner from Motay.

Alternatively, you can also plant the mysterious seed that you obtain from Mouldwood Depth. Give it to Tuley in Wellspring glades and Firemoth’s Delight plants will grow all over Wellspring Glades. This will give you “Bash-points” all over the glades, allowing you to get to higher places including this Gorlek Ore.

An even easier way is to use the Launch ability to reach higher platforms. Unfortunately, this ability can only be obtained almost at the very latter part of the game.

The Wellspring

Location #13

The Wellspring Gorlek Ore Location Number 13

Requirement(s): Double Jump, Dash

At this point, you already have the two required abilities to reach the platform holding the Gorlek. Simply go to the area specified in the map and to your right, you should see a hanging pole.

Hang on it and it will open a path downwards while providing you a way to dodge the purple lasers. At the bottom, wait for the right timing when the laser is not spewing anything. Then use double jump and dash to reach the platform to your left.

Location #14

Requirement(s): Grapple

You can find this ore literally beside the Spirit Challenge altar in The Wellspring map.

Location #15

The Wellspring Gorlek Ore Location Number 15

Requirement(s): Grapple

You can either go through the door where you can find Tokk (2nd highest door) then use your grapple ability to move to the far right corner of the area.

Or make your way to the highest door then jump to the right so you can fall down to the platform holding the Gorlek Ore.

Alternatively, you can also reach the platform from the entrance of The Wellspring then jump and grapple your way up to the higher platforms.

Either way, just follow the map guide in the photo above and you should be fine.

Location #16

Requirement(s): Triple Jump (Optional)

You can find this in the rotating room puzzle. Once you solve the puzzle, go to the left side where you’ll find a spinning wheel with blue moss. Ride it and propel yourself upwards so you can stick to the wall above it.

Then climb your way up and you should discover a secret area with the ore.

Alternatively, you can use the Triple Jump spirit shard so you won’t have to ride the spinning wheel.

You have to apply the same concept as in the previous location for this one.

First, position yourself at the platform above the rising bubble. Then use Ku’s feather to flap the bubble rightwards. Then use double jump and Grapple ability so you can move on top of the bubble before it goes out of reach.

You may have to move a little faster for this than the previous one.

Windswept Wastes

Location #34

Requirement(s): Burrow

Once you have the Burrow ability, go back to the entrance of Windswept Waste. You should see a Gorlek ore buried under the sands.

Simply use the Burrow ability and you’re good to go.

Location #35

Windswept Waste Gorlek Ore Location Number 35

Requirement(s): Light Burst (optional), Bash (optional)

You can find this in a secret area near the sands bridge (area after you fought the corrupted Gorlek monster).

This is a secret area so simply go towards the seemingly dead-end path and get the Gorlek ore. Just note that the bridge will collapse as soon as you step on it so move fast to avoid falling.

If you did fall though, just use the Lightburst and Bash ability to reach the upper platform.

Location #36

Windswept Waste Gorlek Ore Location Number 36

Requirement(s): Burrow

Go to the area specified in the map above. Then use Double Jump and Burrow to propel yourself upwards.

Location #37

Windswept Waste Gorlek Ore Location Number 37

Requirement(s): Burrow, Bash, Dash, Double Jump, Triple Jump, Sticky (optional)

This one is a little tricky. So let’s take this one step by step:

  1. Use the burrow ability and follow the path below until you encounter the missile-like monster.
  2. Lure the monster above the ground.
  3. Then once it is on the air, use the Bash ability to propel yourself upwards.

    Make sure to position yourself just below the circle sand platform.
  4. Use the Burrow ability to get on the top of the circle platform.
  5. Jump unto the glowing plant to your right.
  6. Use Bash to propel yourself to the upper left. (In about 80 degrees angle).
  7. Quickly use the Burrow ability again so you can get on top of the platform. 

    Once you’re at the top, you should now see the Gorlek ore to your left.
  8. Use Double Jump, Triple Jump and Dash in quick succession so you can cling to the wall near the ore.

    If you equipped the Sticky Spirit Shard, you should be able to cling to it without a problem.

    Otherwise, just continuously jump so you won’t fall from the wall.

Weeping Ridge

Location #38

Weeping Ridge Gorlek Ore Location Number 38

Requirement(s): Launch, Dash, Triple Jump (Optional but recommended)

Technically, this map is still within Silent Woods and everything you acquire here will further increase your map completion in Silent Woods.

Anyway, go to the position specified in the image above then use the Launch ability upwards. Once you get teleported, quickly maneuver yourself using the double, triple jump and dash ability so you can stick to the wall directly above the warp portal.

Then jump and stick to the wall to the opposite side. At the upper platform to your right, you should see the Gorlek ore.

Willow’s End

  3. Use the Launch ability and propel yourself upwards.
  4. Then quickly use the Grapple ability so you can cling to the blue moss in the circle platform of the huge spinning wheel above you.
  5. Watch your timing and use the Launch ability so you can reach the warp portal at the upper right corner.

    You may have to use the Dash + Triple Jump ability if you mess this up.

    Or start over if you really messed it up.
  6. Once you enter the warp portal you will be teleported to an area without any footing. So quickly use Double Jump and move rightwards.
  7. Use the Launch ability to get into the platform holding the Gorlek Ore.

Location #40

Willows End Gorlek Ore Location Number 40

Requirement(s): Ku’s Feather

In this location, simply use Ku’s Feather to navigate your way into the huge spinning circle platform.
