Just bringing this thread back since it was lost in the forum switch

So let's get started.

Grey stone graphic means that it's just a type of stone
Redish-purple stone graphic means that it is a type of ore

Tip No. 2
NO LONGER APPLIES DUE TO COMBAT CHANGES
jordancoles wrote:"Blue" attacks such as "Left Hook" are very effective while fighting ants as they normally defend against yellow, green and sometimes red

Green and blue defenses are the only maneuvers required to defend against ants

An example of an early green defense is Quick Dodge

jordancoles wrote:Signposts left unattended will decay, stockpiles will not
When planning specific colours for something like a mansion, it is wise to store the materials in stockpiles rather than in the mansion's building sign because of this

Tip No. 4
jordancoles wrote:It is possible refill your waterskin by carrying a barrel of water overhead and then right clicking the barrel with your waterskin
It is also possible to mine while carrying a barrel over your head

This is useful for mining with a pickaxe in your hands since you cannot also wear a bucket

Logs can be lifted and moved, and you can also store them in boats to save time instead of making crates on-the-go

Tip No. 6
OUTDATED AND DOES NOT APPLY WITH THE NEW COMBAT CHANGES OF SEPTEMBER 2016
jordancoles wrote:To avoid getting stuck in a situation where you only have attack moves on your hand at any point during combat early on, it is a good idea to set up your deck like this
Image

When starting out, you are only given 5 moves total, and since you can only have 5 moves at a time in your "hand" during combat, this means that you will have 1 of each move up at all times

Tip No. 9, 10, 11
Glorthan wrote:- Easiest way to block animals in this version is to use branch stockpiles. Just right click branches from your hand onto the ground. (Doesn't work if animal is agro'd as it will either destroy the stickpiles/signposts or path around)
- The plow stamina check only happens when you click, so if you're plowing long lines you can save a lot of energy by plowing at 0% stamina using a single click (no longer works).
- The little arrows next to the roadsign markers indicate where your person will travel past, if you want an uninterrupted road through densely populated terrain make sure those little spots aren't covered with path blocking items.

Alzuule wrote:You can fully block a badgers attack when you have 45 UA with a single defence move, 30+ agility should be aquired before trying if you arent confident you can do with less. Can also be done with less depending on how much armor you have on, more armor = less UA needed to not take damage/armor tearing. A fox is slightly easier so i'd guess that 40 UA would be fine for those. Foxes run very early so either fight on grasslands where you can sprint or fight while on horseback. Killing badgers can give you agility/con food + hides for badger vest, which gives armor while being wearable under an actual armor item and +2 agility.

Save every rat, perch and morel you find. These 3 things make some of the most energy efficient food in the game, especially early on when quality is low.

Rats make Rat on a Stick (rat + stick), 450% energy for 2% hunger.
Perch makes Perched Perch (perch + carrot + onion + stick), 400% energy for 1.75% hunger.
Morels can be dried on a herbalist table, 200% energy for 1% hunger.

cerulean19 wrote:Seems like trees grow easily twice as fast in the "forest" biome that spawns around them as they grow.

So if you're a hermit, you should plant your tree-farm area with shitty-q trees as soon as you get an herbalist table up, let those trees do their thing, and you'll hopefully have a few spots of forest biome by the time you've got better pots/herbalist table/soil/water.

You can just chop down the bad trees when they get in the way.

Drevar wrote:Using a Clay Cauldron can be a real pain in the butt, as you have to wait 7 minutes for it to actually boil (be usable). As it warms up it also consumes both the water and fuel, which can be very wasteful if you have a limited supply of good water. It actually does not require any water to be present to "warm up", however. You can start the fire under it and let it burn a while, and then add the water only as you are going to actually craft with it. When you add the water it will instantly boil (assuming the warm up time has passed). Then, when you are done crafting, you can use a bucket to remove the remaining water and keep the fire burning if you wish or simply lift the cauldron to extinguish the fire.

thirty7even wrote:This one is obvious and probably well known, but what the hell.

While foraging with low stats, make 2 sets of clothes. SET 1 for perception + exploration, SET 2 for survival.
On low levels, without even having leather discovered, you can have 6 glideable pieces of gear equipped: nettle hat, 2 x nettle shirt, 2 x nettle pants, clogs.

Start with SET 1. Once you've spotted a forageable object on the map, start making your way towards it while changing to SET 2.
Perception*Exploration drops, but forageables stay, your survival hard cap goes up. Profit. (You will have to sacrifice some inventory slots, but instant boost in quality just might be worth it)

Tip No. 77/78
thirty7even wrote:Hunting/foraging with disposable characters (I will call them slaves here).
Again, most of it is obvious but new players might find it useful maybe.

Multiple stages of tryharding.

Stage 1.
Looks like early in the game guests give significant LP boost, very often you will have to park your boat and walk quite a lot to a quest objective. Jump on a boat, sit your slave in the passenger seat. Load 2 crates. While sailing to your objective, load crates and both your and slave's inventory with crap you find on your way. Park, walk to your objective. If you can't be bothered to walk back to your boat, your slave can TP with the boat.

Stage 2.
Same as stage 1, but give your slave a cupboard as well. You'll have to either go back to your boat or slave will have to sail back alone.

Stage 3.
Hunting with 1 slave and 4 boats. I find this to be the most effective way to hunt and this was actually the reason I've decided to write this down.
Load slave's inventory with branches/blocks. Sit in separate boats, carry one extra each. You'll have to switch between windows a lot. Find an animal, drop extra boats, aggro with main, bring an animal to a good spot on a shore. Slave traps an animal with 2 boats. If it's an aggressive animal, make sure slave doesn't stay in neither of the trapping boats, otherwise you might lose both slave and a boat. This is easy to pull off since slave has three boats at his disposal.
This way you can take home 8 dead animals (2 in each boat) and it doesn't take much time/effort at all.

Next one is a slave abuse and should be illegal :D
Stage 4.
Stage 3 + one or two extra slaves, sit them in passenger seats, let them carry a cupboard or yet another boat each. (it seems like you can only put an empty cupboard in the boat).
It's too much of a hassle for me, but hey, some of you guys might be this crazy.

When you come across a decayed claim and you see some cupboards usually that were obviously in a house at some point, it means they were in a house when the house decayed. Sometimes, when a house has a basement or attic, and 2 cupboards on top of each other when the house decays (one in the attic in the same spot on one on the main floor below) they will overlap on top of each other on the same tile. If you lift one cupboard, it will unveil the hidden one underneath it and usually will have some items people haven't noticed yet.

it will consume the stone, but you save the plowing energy and it works on those terrains you can't stomp right away

I always keep a clover on me for horse purposes. Always. They're just too efficient to pass up.

I'm sure it's in this thread already, but it's good to remember that you can budge right up against them and then use the clover to speed up the process a bit.

You can give some wild animals clovers for perks. Wild sheep will let you sheer their wool and using a bucket on them will milk them (needs confirmation), cows can be milked and horses can be ridden. Giving these animals clovers is also the first step of the taming process.

So you have a cliff in your village and it's nothing but a pita? Wrong. Make that eyesore useful

Outdoor mini-cupboards that take no space and won't decay. And when you are more advanced, your storage becomes your mirkwood curio supply.

Logs logs everywhere cause we need fucktons for mansions and all kinds of early game shit. Except they take so much space even when packed neatly. Cliff them and if you're not as lazy as I am you can do it tidy and fit more:

You catch my drift by now. works great for boats too as well as your village's curio desks which you can comfortably access from the bottom or the top of the cliff to stock and manage.

A lot of loot gets dropped in the water during sieges, either by the attackers not being able to carry any more stuff or by the people being attacked not wanting to let the attackers have any of their gear. In world nine I got a q118 bear cape and a q130 straw hat when I was a still a sprucecap this way.

Top No. 2
No longer applies in new combat

"Blue" attacks such as "Left Hook" are very effective while fighting ants as they normally defend against yellow, green and sometimes red
Image

Green and blue defenses are the only maneuvers required to defend against ants

An example of an early green defense is Quick Dodge
Image
An example of an early blue defense is Sidestep or Watch its Moves

Tip No. 3

Signposts left unattended will decay, stockpiles will not
When planning specific colours for something like a mansion, it is wise to store the materials in stockpiles rather than in the mansion's building sign because of this

Tip No. 4

It is possible refill your waterskin by carrying a barrel of water overhead and then right clicking the barrel with your waterskin
It is also possible to mine while carrying a barrel over your head

This is useful for mining with a pickaxe in your hands since you cannot also wear a bucket

Tip No. 5

Old logs and stumps can be used as general storage early on in the game
Image

Logs can be lifted and moved, and you can also store them in boats to save time instead of making crates on-the-go

Tip No. 6

To avoid getting stuck in a situation where you only have attack moves on your hand at any point during combat early on, it is a good idea to set up your deck like this
Image

When starting out, you are only given 5 moves total, and since you can only have 5 moves at a time in your "hand" during combat, this means that you will have 1 of each move up at all times

Awesome!! howver, can that be seen from the back, or does the cupboard clip it? Would it still be hidden if someone implements short/flat cupboards?

Just saying it may be safe from now, but may not stay that way (and not even figuring in private mods and clients).
