Within Forager, there are big chests. These chests each hold either a spirit orb or a random artifact. Consequently, these chests are rather highly sought after. Some chests are obtained by completing certain quests, as noted above. Others are discovered or rewarded for finishing certain puzzles. Either way, you will need a key to open each one. Here’s where you can find them.

Last Minute Tips and Tricks

Now that you have a firm grasp of the challenges that remain ahead of you, here are some quick tips and tricks to help you on your journey.

  • Don’t forget to make boots. At the forge, you can craft boots that will increase your movement speed. Being able to move around faster is a great way to speed up productivity early in the game.
  • You can construct things on bridges. It may seem that bridges are dead space sometimes, but don’t forget that you can mingle structures onto bridges just the same as most other spaces.
  • Energy is a valuable thing. Early in the game, you may find yourself low on energy. Make fish traps for an easy source of energy.
  • An easy way to level up is by using the bow. First, obtain the quiver item so that you will not need to craft arrows. Then, make a supply of XP boosting tomes like the Moldy Book or Hellfire Glyphs. Lastly, use your bow to blast away any destructible object in your path and watch the experience build.
  • An easy way to make money is to craft a quarry and a mining rod near each other. The quarry will spawn rocks that the mining rod can reduce to valuable resources.
  • You can’t automatically store items. If you want to store an item, then learn the storage skill and produce a vault.
