This guide provides information about the various island biomes including what can be encountered there and what can be gathered there. Wheather you're searching for a specific item and want to know the best location, or need to know where to travel to find the most fights this guide can help.

The information in this guide was gathered over hundreds of island visits, recording each and every item, encounter, and piece of silver found to provide accurate information. All data was collected with lvl 45+ pets (max sized islands).

Backgrounds are an apparel items for all species of pets that's placed behind the pet, making them appear to be in an enviorment. Some backgrounds can be found while exploring the islands.

There are backgrounds to be found for the Grassland, Desert, Savannah, Tundra, and Jungle biome. They can be found in guardian monster chests, from temple guardians, the Hero Cult, and the Magic Shop. They can also be brought back from distant travels when your pet completes a quest.

                       Any biome background can be found on any island, regardless if it's the matching biome or not.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________


                                                         

Various pet genes and items can affect an island and how it is explored. These can provide ways to fine tune your exploration experience to your desires.

A pet's level effects how large of an island you will get during exploration. Level 45+ give access to the largest island available to that pet. As a pet's level increases, so does the island's size. 


                                                                                   
                                                                                                Carpo Kami

Carpo is the Kami of Autum that was once obtainable during an event. When a Carpo is in your stables, any food gathered will be increased in amount. This does not effect the rarity of food, rather the amount of food gained per pile. This stacks with the harvester throdama's ability.


                                                                     

                                                              Harvester Throdama                       Scout Throdama

                                           Throdama morphs can offer some benefits when they're explored with.

Harvester throdamas morph of grade one or higher increase the amount of material gained by 30%. This includes walked over piles, items from temples and chests, as well as some rewards from events.

Scout throdamas have Watchman and Scout abilities. Scout prevents losing energy upon the first loss on an island against a monster. One use per island. Watchman allows the pet to visit one free island per day that doesnt wont towards to daily 20 limit.



                             

                Watchman                                        Hound                                          Scout                                              Watchman

                                                             Several pet genes can change how an island is explored. 

Acute Eyesight - All Species - Acute eyesight increases the radius of visibility against the fog of war.

            




Agile Paws - All Species - Increases the liklihood of collecting vermillion from a guardian's chest.


Watchman - Etelia & Roc - Watchman allows the pet to visit one free island per day that wont count towards to daily 20 limit. 

Scout - Puma - Scout prevents losing energy
 upon the first loss on an island against a monster. This is one use per island.

Hound - Lykos - Hound increases the lykos's energy to 15, allowing it to visit atleast three islands before running out of energy.

                                                                                        Travelling Magician Invite

When a travelling magician is visiting your in, all fog of war is removed from the islands. This allows full visbility of the island and what's on it before even needing to take a step.

              




                                                                                                        Astrologist 

The Astrologist is a manor building that allows you to increase the odds of finding an item of choice. This effect becomes stronger the higher level the building is. The Astrologist will increase the amount of piles on the island if a material is selected, as well as increases how often it drops from island buildings, including exchange market, and guardian chests. Some event items can be entered into the Astrologist. 


The Astrologist also increases the chances of finding non-pile items (such as rainbow jar, energy drink, invites, etc). If such an item is selected the Astrologist will increase how often it drops from island buildings and guardian chests.

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.

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

 Crocotta Fur 
A high quality piece of pelt.

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

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Elegant Feather
An exquisite feather from a tropical Quezal.

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

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.

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.

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

Whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Random acts of senseless kindness.
