"You got Hard Ore!"
The Hard Ore is a quest item obtainable in Oracle of Seasons. It is received after Link obtains the Red Ore and Blue Ore, which can only be obtained with the Magnetic Gloves and Roc's Feather. Upon obtaining the two ores, Link may have them forged together at the Great Furnace, creating the Hard Ore. Link can then take the Hard Ore, along with the Wooden Shield, to the Subrosian Smithy, where it is forged into the Iron Shield.
