Q: Dear Sage
What is the hierarchy of metals that a rust monster prefers to eat? More specifically, in what order will a rust monster eat the following metals: silver, gold, copper, iron, platinum, adamantine, mithril?

A: As mentioned on page 216 of the Monster Manual, rust monsters prefer ferrous metals (steel and iron) over precious metals (gold or silver), but the exact hierarchy is at the whim of a particular rust monster’s appetites and can be influenced by the frequency of metals in its home environment.
