Improved furnace, tanner, stove

Do they do anything besides give you more space and a cooler looking placeable? I know the blacksmith and armorbench give you access to epic weapons and armor.

there isnt anything new expect that more slots, but they said they want change way it work, ie stations will leveling but its still distant future

The stove comes with some recipes including Soup.
You can improve soups with T4 cooks, but to make the base soup you still need the stove.

edit and the improved one indeed just cleans up your chest of steel reinforcements :slight_smile:

So that’s how I make soup! It seems kind of a weird endgame item when they drop so often. lol

I guess I’ll still make some of them for the appearance.

The soup made with feral meat, salt and purified water is used in to make Aloe Soup … a recipe you have to learn by interacting with a book in the game. Aloe soup is a strong healing consumable which stacks to 50 and is reasonably light in comparison to Aloe potion and Ambrosia. Although Aloe Soup does have a decay timer so you either have to make enough for a gaming session or be able to store it in preservation boxes.

Base soup is not that good (40 hp) and it’s complicated to make. But it is an ingredient for other food.
Early on I’m always struggling to get spices. In the desert area you can use Grey Lupine. This is a dull coloured bush growing high onto the desert cliffs. You need a sickle, because it grinds to spice only 10 to 1.

Steak (40 hp) is easy to make.
Roasted Haunch (80 hp) needs big game to get the meat.

The most helpful soups:

  • aloe soup (100 hp)
  • hearty stew (100 hp)
  • lasting meal (well fed)
  • bone broth ==> mystery meat soup (survival +3)
  • spiced soup (warming up)

Thanks, also black hand thralls drop spices. I usually pick up a lot when I go to the Black Galleon for thralls.

Plant fibers make spices as well. Also, the more space in a station is definitely worth it if you are a max grinder, and also makes it so you need less thralls. IE 5 t1 Furnaces would need 5 t3 / named smelters to be as efficient as 3 improved furnaces and 3 of thsoe smelters. Plus, more HP, so if you are on a pvp server, it takes more to wipe it.

I wish I could mark more than one solution, there were a couple people with great answers on here. :thinking:

plant fibers and most flowers will grind to spice. Not the lotus, which grinds to lotus powder. I accidentally discovered the fiber myself about 3 weeks ago. That grinder is amazing.
