Need help finding a place to build a base

I have a few requirements.

1.) Flat and huge building spot.

2.) Near lots of water

3.) Near Iron,brimstone,spiders (silk) and coal

4.) Can NOT be too close to resources (Respawn time reasons)

5.) Can NOT be too far from resources

6.) Needs to be in the desert

I need specific instructions on where to build at.

You can build on the cliff or in the flats north of Corner of Bones.

That is a long trip for water.

Build a well.


You didnt learn did you?
4) It must be in distance to resource-nodes.

Can not be too close to resources basically means you want to build in midst of resources. At least I understand it that way. Please be more careful.

Also stop leeching off locations off other players. Take a look around yourself.
This is at least the second time you posted this.

There is always something which speaks against building there. There are no perfect spots.
Most interesting spots (in terms of them being interesting, i.e. purge) are still missing eighter resources or water. Bear with that.
Btw: This is what made big wells to fascinating, when placing fishtraps inside was possible.


That’s the same area I built my first resource harvesting base in. lol

Do you mean the circle in the middle of the map?

Now where is all the trees for this main base

How about that spot? You can build eleveator to get even faster down to the resources. An other possible location would be on the lower right edge to the circle. But that area is not very flat. On top of that you have many thrall and two prist spawn loactions nearby.


Gonna add my fav spot too :slight_smile:

Here’s my spot for starting bases (from ~10 to 60) up to the point where I need to get Star Metal and maybe move north:

There’s a big expanse of desert filled with trees and stones and fiber plants, and also dry wood, and there’s a small low plateu on which you can also build, and has enough space for a big base and to expand vertically.

You have access to the river through a round around route (following the “road”) or you can build an elevator as a shortcut. There’s lots of iron nearby (~ up to 9000 or maybe more, by going from deposit to deposit) and there’s lots of coal too.

Sinner’s Refuge and Gallaman’s are very near, and have enough brimstone to get you started… and the Deathwhisper Ruins has lots more, if you can deal with the quick spawning spooders there :slight_smile:


Here’s another one, but not a starting zone: the ledge to the north of Mitra’s shrine.
It is in the desert, outside the sandstorm area. You’re close two capitals, level 30 and level 40 (steel YAY).

You can enter the green zone at Chaos Mouth. Crazy amounts of iron there, too.

I have a base on a island surround by water with a nice shelter but it not flat but I like it.

At the longish lake in the more brown area of the highlands (western side) I found a whole mess load of iron and coal all over out there, I dunno why the map isn’t showing that. On a few servers I’ve been on, no one builds out there. It’s cold, sure, so maybe that’s why? I like that area though.

G8. Everything you need is close to G8. G8 is the best. You have to go a little further to get brimstone. But it’s an easy run.

I don’t like the green/brown zone, because it’s raining all the time. Even indoors. So depressing :frowning:


That’s a great spot, holy mackerel, I always go to the cliffs east of the ship if you know what I mean, and do ore elsewhere. :smiley:

Yeah, I really like that spot… I made base there with a least 3 chars, in slightly different spots each, after I struggled for a while on the last ones trying to find a different place that I liked too, but no luck :slight_smile:

I think it’s good for a PvE server too… I’m not sure about on a PvP server or conflict, due to the fact it might be a bit exposed… but I’m not an online player anyways, and maybe a PvP veteran can make it work somehow :smiley:

And I think it would be good for a private server too, as long as you don’t block or cut the “road” that passes through that expanse, I guess. The plateau is small but it has enough space for a whole base including wheel of pain and altars and map room, if you build vertically.

Here are some pics from that particular spot in the small plateau to give an idea of size (they are arguably bad pics but they are the only ones I have atm):

pics inside

I used to have a map room in the empty space in this next pic, until the game deleted it :frowning:

I also really like that spot too! I made a small base there some time back… the only problem is the Rhinos nosing around your doors if you build an elevator access :smiley:

same tip I gave you last time you wanted everyone to find you a spot. You gave us all nothing but complaints and whining.

get up and walk the map.


That’s good, quite nice and high too just like I expected. On PVP around that area I like to hide in plain sight.

Put a knob on top of my main building, with a 4-seat wheel inside. Install a high hard-to-reach window, and before I log off I remove the taskmaster. They’ll hit my vanity pavilions, but nobody seems to invade “empty” wheelhauses, in almost 2 years of play! :smiley:
