      I got around 100 hardened iron while playing both campaigns at gear level 1. May drop more frequently on higher levels, but just an FYI.

        Can I assume that Hardened Iron starts dropping ONLY when my gear is at level 15+, or can it also drop for level 7+ stuff (like boss weapons which need hardened iron at that level)

          Hardened Iron does not require NG+ or Hard Mode as some of these people are saying. It can drop on New Game Normal if you are trait level 200 or higher.

            Hardened Iron will begin to spawn when you reach Hard Mode - AND - The Armor + Weapons you have equipped are at 15. I had all at +15 except one piece at +14 and received my first Hardened Iron in ACT ONE. So it has nothing to do with where you're at in the game, just your equipment. It seems that it drops off of Special Enemies and Chests at first. It may drop off of other mobs/breakables/spawn in the world after your gear is sufficient quality, but I've yet to experience that.

              The highest material I saw in normal difficulty was galvanized iron and it only starting becoming available in late game. In hard difficulty, galvanized iron becomes extremely plentiful by comparison. I'm guessing late into hard difficulty, hardened iron will become available, and then in nightmare will become plentiful. Still testing this theory. I'll update when I can confirm or deny.
