Basic Survival is an 8-part set of tutorial Quests which teaches players the basic mechanics of 7 Days to Die.

Description[ | ]

Given by the unseen ally Noah, the tutorial quests show new players the ropes while also ensuring that they have the basics needed to survive. The tutorial quest series teaches skills such as gathering resources, crafting basic items, placing items, equipping clothing, and placing/upgrading Building Blocks. Completing the entire quest chain rewards the player with 4 skill points and starts the player on the White River Citizen quest, guiding them to the nearest Traitor Joel's location.

Starting the Quest[ | ]

The Basic Survival quest is first given to the player upon starting a game in both the Navezgane map or in a randomly generated map. When the player character first wakes, naked and with the most scant of supplies, they are greeted by the following message from Noah:

Dear Friend,
The wasteland can be an unforgiving place, I found you naked and left for dead with no supplies. It looks like you crossed the Duke in a bad way and you could use some help. Enclosed is a short guide to help you survive. If you complete it, we just might take in a new citizen. The White River Settlement, it's real and it's safe.
Peace be with you friend, -Noah
