The meadows, which is the first place you will find, is a relatively simple area. The meadows has almost every resource you need.
|Boar Meat||It is pretty much how you get it, aka how to find boars or murder them|
|Deer Meat||Similar thing again, commit mass genocide on deer|
|Mushrooms||Just walk through the forest, you'll almost be walking on them|
|Raspberries||Like mushrooms, they are all around the forest. Just go look for 'em!|
|Neck Tails||They're little lizardlike creatures that can be found in water and wait for it rain.|
|Honey||This is a result of bees. However, this will be a difficult task. Beehives can spawn in any building structure in the wild in the meadows!|
|Stone||Look down. It's everywhere. You'll have to pick it up from the ground until you get a pickaxe to extract the nodes.|
|Flint||It can be found on the shores of watery areas and looks like rocks, but is light grey.|
|Wood||Without a type axe, you will have to pick sticks off the ground until one is found.|
|Fine Wood||This kind of wood is from the birch(and) tree. It cannot yet be obtained unless you have a Tier 2 or higher axe/battleaxe.|
|Beech Seeds||These are after you have successfully cut down a tree using an axe/battleaxe of the tier 1 and higher levels|
|Oak Seeds||It is necessary to cut down Oak trees.|
|Birch Seeds||Become an ecoterrorist and raze birch trees|
|Leather Scraps/Boar Trophy||This is because of the killing of boars|

The oceans can be quite calm during the day but when it rains/thunders at night, it's best to "hold onto your butts", as you won't want it to happen again.
At the moment, however, the ocean is still an "in-progress" biome. More things are constantly being added to it.
Now is a fast sea serpent that can devour any boat. However, if you have the largest boat and the most wind, you will be faster.
The Serpent does not drop
- Serpent Scales
- Serpent Trophy
In which you can make an armour out of the scales…
Next is the Leviathan. You can find him anywhere in the ocean. But be careful as he will sink down below at some point.
His Chitin can make
- Abyssal Harpoon
- Abyssal Knife
Technically, this knife is a tier 3 knife. Don't bother if you have higher than that.
