How do I get Ori's key?

You can craft Ori's key at the forge for the cost of a single iron ingot. The process of getting an iron ingot isn't too complicated. First of all, you need to use stone (18) to fix up the stone hearth and the furnace. Stone can be mined from nearby objects and walls. Next, you need to build the forge. The forge requires three iron ingots. Ori's key also requires an iron ingot, so you need a total of four. Each iron ingot requires three iron ore, so you'll have to farm 12 iron ore and some coal to fuel the furnace.

You can find iron ore near Ori's base by walking around and mining the stone walls with brown dots all over them.
