Island Exploration Guide

This guide's purpose is to serve as a reference to what can be found on the various island biomes and how often it can be found. Whether looking for a specific item and wanting to know which island to go to or wanting to know where to find the most fights for leveling up, this guide can help you. 

Hundreds of islands have been explored for the purpose of this guide. Every silver, item, building, and monster encountered and gathered was recorded during each and every visit on each biome. 

BK Island Very Rare by RavensMournBK Island Rare by RavensMournBK Island Uncommon by RavensMournBK Island Common by RavensMournBK Island Very Common by RavensMourn

Each item, monster, and building has a tag of rarity based off its chance of appearing on any one island. Exact percentages can be found by hovering over the icon next to the item, monster, etc.

The names of some buildings have links to show how that building is encountered and what happens when you use it.

All data was collected with a level 45+ pet. 




Each island biome has been seperated into its own page for the sake of organization. Click on any of the biome tags below that you want to discover more about. Each page has a link back to this main page for when you wish to return.

Best Island For

If the best island has two listed it means both were close percentage wise. The slighter higher being listed first and the lowest being listed last. The percent difference can be anywhere from 0%-10%.

(New!) Apparel Material

 Biogass Bubble
Handle with caution! The content is biogas produced by microorganisms living in symbiosis with bubble plants that use it for protection. In addition to unpleasant odor making a plant very unappealing, the gas stored under high pressure in special bubble-like plant organs - gasobullas - explodes whenever its container is damaged.

Volcano biome only, walked over, guardian chests, exchange market 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Black Oil
A sticky combustive substance produced only by the Ashen Umdhlebi. It's unknown how the animal uses it, but it turned out be a great fuel.

Drops from volcano's umdhlebi, normal and guardian. 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Bones
 
Assorted bones brought back from glorious hunts. Some of them are just trophies, but others are a valuable as a crafting material.

All biomes, all monsters, normal and guardian. 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Crocotta Fur 
A high quality piece of pelt.

Drops from the savannah's Crocotta, normal and guardian. 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Cryptomorph Chitin 
Featherlight and durable material. Its only disadvantage is that it usually comes together with clicking serrated mandibulae and flailing venomous tails of an oversized aggressive centipede.

Drops from the desert's Cryptomorph, normal and guardian. 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Elegant Feather
An exquisite feather from a tropical Quezal.

Drops from the jungle's tropical Quezal, normal and guardian. 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Fire-Forged Scale
Salamander scales are fireproof, which makes them valuable crafting material.

Drops from the grassland's and volcano's Salamanders. 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Leather
Strong and flexible leather made from the hide of plain hoppers.

Drops from the grassland's Hopper.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It Moves.

Drops from the savannah's and volcano's Umdhlebi, normal and guardian.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Plain Feather

Emerald
Green precious stone. Such stones are slowly formed by a local plant called illustria that produces a specific resin. It crystallizes in a correct geometric shape when comes in contact with atmosphere oxygen. The color of the stone depends on the minerals contained in the soil where the plant grows.

Jungle
Guardian Chests
Travelling Market

 Sapphire
Blue precious stone. Such stones are slowly formed by a local plant called illustria that produces a specific resin. It crystallizes in a correct geometric shape when comes in contact with atmosphere oxygen. The color of the stone depends on the minerals contained in the soil where the plant grows.

Volcano
Savannah
Guardian Chests

 Zinc
Zinc ore is used to produced different metal alloys with the help of dragon fire.

Island Backgrounds

Backgrounds can be applied behind your pet to make them appear in a new enviorment when you or other's visit the pet's page. A handful of backgrounds can be found on the islands in the usual chests.

There is a background for each biome except volcano. Any Magic Shop will occasionlly have one to sell. It is assumed that the Hero Cult can reward them as well. Backgrounds can not be entered into the astrologist. Quests can reward biome backgrounds when a pet brings an item back from distant travels.

All biome backgrounds can drop from any island, regardless if it's the same biome (as in, a jungle background from a grassland chest).

Items And Pets That Alter Island Exploration

 



Travelling Magician Invite
When you have a travelling magician at your inn the fog of war ( black boxes) will be completely uncovered. This allows you to see the entire island at once without having to take a step. This effect works with any level pet and all types of islands.


 Astrologist (lvl 4)
Astrologist
This building increases the chance of finding an item of your choice. The higher the building's level the more noticable the change will be, with a top level astrologist causing a large increase of the selected item on the islands. This building also works on chests and building such as the exchange market. It can be found in your Buildings, under your Manor tab.

Good guide. Here's some additions:

 = Plant Proteins
= Also found in jungle.

And amethysts  (amethyst.png (40×40)), can definitely be found somewhere on the islands, but I haven't noticed if it's the grasslands -- or if those got moved elsewhere after other island types got added.

Thanks, Zaltys. I will add them. Amethysts I have vague memory of it coming from jungle but I will make sure I see it there first.

Confused about where to find the type monster you are looking for? Each island's guide page shows the name and picture/s of each monster that can be encountered there.

I have run into chancellry in the grasslands and had no idea what it was (being new).  This is the first guide I checked and it didn't have it.  The guide for "Buildings in Explore" had it listed. =)  Just thought you'd want to know.

Fixed and updated! All shiny now. Replaced all the broken/missing images and whatnots and just made things look a little more organized.

If there is an item/building/ect missing or wrong lemme know.

The tundra is only open during (the northern hemisphere) winter. It's where you can find hybernating lykos eggs, and recently etelia.

But now, O LORD, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand.

Random acts of senseless kindness.
