Enshrouded: Beginner’s Guide

So, you’ve just stepped into the vast realm of Enshrouded, and boy, it’s a behemoth of a game, still tinkering in the early access realm. Whether you’re flying solo or rallying up a crew of 16 players on a multiplayer server, I’ve got your back with some tips and tricks that’ll make your journey through Embervale a tad less daunting.

Food, Water, And Other Yummy Stuff

Now, Enshrouded might not force-feed you in the survival department, but don’t snub your nose at the delicious buffs food and water offer. It’s not just about surviving; it’s about thriving, my friends!


Grub time! Munching on cooked meats, especially the lean meat from those cute rabbit creatures, will give you a hefty HP buff. As you level up, aim for higher-tier animals for even juicier meat.


Hydration station! Wells scattered around the world are your go-to water source, and later on, you can flex your crafting skills to make your own. Water doesn’t just quench your thirst; it amps up your stamina and regen, perfect for exploring the vast landscapes.

Other Food Types

Variety is the spice of life, right? Devour purple berries to regenerate health or chow down on specialty foods like Mushrooms to boost specific attributes. Check those food tooltips for the full lowdown.

Fast Travel

Embervale is like a sprawling metropolis, and you’ve got places to be. Fast travel is your golden ticket! Zip back to your Flame Altar or home base anytime you’re not in an Enshrouded area. As you progress, unlock those Spires – permanent fast travel spots that’ll have you gliding across the map like a pro.


It’s a class act in Enshrouded. Switch things up anytime – be a wizard, a healer, a tank, or dive into any classic class you fancy. Reset those skill points at the Flame Altar and experiment with different builds. Flexibility is your combat superpower!

Quest Progression

Structured chaos, anyone? Unlock quests, follow your world map, and embark on a questing spree. The journey is laden with buildings, points of interest, and destructible objects filled with treasures. Smash and grab, my friends!


Meet the fab five – Blacksmith, Carpenter, Farmer, Alchemist, and Hunter. Unlock them by conquering NPC vaults highlighted on your world map. Each NPC brings unique upgrades and items to the table. The Blacksmith, for instance, crafts armor sets and snazzy weapons. Get those NPCs unlocked for a game-changing experience!


In Enshrouded, farming isn’t just a hobby; it’s a necessity. Turn a handful of Flax plants into a bounty with some farming magic. First things first – unlock the farmer NPC, and you’re all set to cultivate greatness.


Become the architect of your dreams! Carve out mountains, erect dwarven fortresses – the world is your canvas. Just remember to drop a Flame Altar to save your creations from the inevitable world resets.

And there you have it, my Enshrouded companions! May your journey be filled with loot, laughter, and limitless exploration!
