Obsidian questions

Recommended Posts

wefoij    60

I want to be an obsidian master smith. I want to build 2 chests completely filled with obsidian spears and armor.

So before I go plan this playthrough, got one important question: What's the best way to renew obsidian?

Is it:

1. Gather a s*** ton of ice while waiting for dry season

2. dance around on an island during dry season waiting or volcano eruptions

3. Use the ice on the resulting lava pits to get obsidian.

I don't like this because this ain't year-round.

 

The other source is Obsidian boulders, but the don't starve wiki is kind of mum on their respawn mechanics. Is it also dry season volcano eruptions? How do you people get the massive amounts of gunpowder required to mine these boulders? How do you renew nitre in SW? Is it better to farm slurtles for their slime in a RoG world and bring a massive supply of them over?

if you have woodlegs with you, this is not a problem since he can make coconades and gunwoder renewable...

I gotta be wendy, no debate about that :(

Main reason I play this game is because of abigail. I only play games where I can summon a powerful minion.

So I take it obsidian boulders only respawn via volcano eruptions, meaning it's also dry season exclusive?

Volcano Staff destroys obsidian boulders? That's awesome. I'll choose this method.

Can someone please tell me how Obsidian Boulders renew themselves?

They don't, but can make obsidian renewable if you extinguish lava pools on land with ice.

" Obsidian Boulder is also the only boulder type that respawns(other than Moon Rock Boulders). "

Don't Starve Wiki.

Hmm, I wonder why they put that in there then. Maybe someone should remove it.

Obsidian boulders DO respawn.

local function SetEmpty(inst)
	local sm = GetSeasonManager()
	local days = sm:GetSeasonLength(SEASONS.MILD) + sm:GetSeasonLength(SEASONS.WET) + sm:GetSeasonLength(SEASONS.GREEN) + sm:GetSeasonLength(SEASONS.DRY)
	inst.components.growable:StartGrowing(days * TUNING.TOTAL_DAY_TIME)
	inst.Physics:SetCollides(false)
	inst:AddTag("NOCLICK")
	inst.MiniMapEntity:SetEnabled(false)
	inst:Hide()
end

When they are empty (you mine them), they will be full again after a full year worth of days.

Vocano mining is nice and badass, but don't forget to take some stuff to prevent overheating, or you will be forced to retreat and wait very often during your "mining", and / or to loose a lot of life.
