To mark 1.5 million early access players, you can now suggest and boost features for Enshrouded via an official forum. Developer Keen Games has released a tips-and-tricks video for those getting started on their journey into Embervale.
On the Enshrouded feedback board, you can suggest features and fixes, discuss ideas, and upvote the things you want to see in the game. Ranking on the board does not equate to development or priority, but Keen Games promises to be paying attention.
As for the video, some of the tips are fairly obvious: Enemies grant XP, bosses grant more XP, you can level up various attributes, and you can always reset your progress to try new builds. Upgrading your equipment is essential to exploration, but you’ll need to find specific NPCs to upgrade your class’ gear.
In the second half of the video, it introduces more obscure tricks. Every tree you chop down has a chance of dropping resin, but trees with brown leaves are guaranteed to drop up to three resins per tree. It can be hard to forage flax, so the video recommends growing it yourself. You’ll need water to farm, which you can pick up from enemies or wells out in the world.
The game’s title comes from area cloaked in shroud. To safely traverse these zones, you’ll need to level up your Flame. This unlocks areas and boosts attributes globally for all players in your world. This allows new players to hop into the game more quickly. Finally, the video advises you to keep old gear and weapons, and it can help your friends join in even if you are a high-level player.
Enshrouded has proven to be a big hit, with over a million players on Steam. A console version and an early access roadmap for Enshrouded are on the horizon. If you are looking for more hints, check out the Enshrouded guide hub.
