Description[ | ]

Clay Soil is a basic resource for the Forge and can be gathered while digging in most any ground dirt anywhere in Navezgane. It can be used in the Forge from where it is a key ingredient to craft a variety of items. Surface sand blocks may grant single Clay Soil. Depending on the Quality of the Shovel used, the return on the amount of Clay Soil dug up will be greater if the Quality is high.
