Mithril (ミスリル) is a metal found in YGGDRASIL and the New World.


Mithril was a metal often used to strengthen armor alongside orichalum. It was a very expensive material. One would be able to afford a mithril full plate armor once they reach orichalcum rank. A mithril rank, which was the third-highest rank an adventurer could achieve, might be able to afford a mithril weapon. Only a person in the adamantite rank would be able to just give it away.[1]


In the Anime, mithril is portrayed as a turquoise green metal.


Mithril was an enchanted metal that was stronger than steel. Mithril-made plate armor didn’t rattle as much, unlike iron.[2][3]
