IDKDude Posted March 7, 2017 Share Posted March 7, 2017 Thought Ruins basing was easy? Well then this is for you. My friend recently decided to try out solo-basing in the atrium, which wasn't too unexpected as he is known around the server for solo-basing ruins. Below are the requirements and steps to take on the journey to the heart of the ruins. All due credit goes to my friend, Toxiqq (Puppy25).

Any seasoned player will know where to get the materials needed, and if you don't I wouldn't recommend even going to the atrium in the first place. Those are the materials required to build a base suitable for up to 2 survivors. Once you have everything prepared, then the fun begins. In each cave world, there will be 5(?) pairs of big tentacles, only 1 pair leading to the atrium and back. They are essentially cave worm holes that you have to defeat to access. Each time you hit the Big Tentacle, it will spawn smaller tentacles around it, which don't do a whole lot of damage themselves, but hit very fast and can easily swarm you. They are very weak though, dying to a single spear hit. You might want to back off and hit each tentacle one-by-one, or at least till you've cleared a path back to the big tentacle. If you are able to count your hits, it's possible to finish off the tentacle in your last 2-3 hits, they only have 500 health. Remember, each hit spawns a swarm of the smaller tentacles, so it's not advised to hit it more than once at a time. Anyways, I'm sure somebody else has a better guide on kiting big tentacles. Once you've covered enough tentacles that you've found the atrium you want to go insane if you already aren't, because there will be obelisks that block your way if you are not. Stay on the edges and be wary of clockworks that roam the area. The atrium is very similar to the labyrinth. You want to find the gateway room because that area provides natural light during daytime and evening. There are ornate chests scattered around, but the loot isn't worth the trouble as you won't be finding any pseudo-science stations in the atrium. Once you get to the gateway, you want to plop everything down. Things are going to get tight, but there should be enough room for everything. If you have a spider nest, plop it down next to 3 bunny hutches. If not, 3 bunny hutches will be able to handle 2 depth dweller nests. Put the remaining bunny hutches in your base and close them off for easy culling. Plant plants, build structures, and do what you would to a normal base. At this moment, everything should be down, and you are good to go. By the time you reach the atrium, it will probably be winter, so berry bushes, saplings, and grass tufts aren't going to be of much use. If you were fast, you might've been able to get 1 harvest in before the winter starts. At the moment, there isn't much else to do other than kill bunnies, explore the rest of the atrium, and harvest crops. At least you have a small base prepared when the new update rolls around. I may have forgotten some steps to the Atrium, I wouldn't know as I never completed a full journey, albeit close. When I did try it once with my friend, we were ambushed in the Atrium by 3 Terror beaks, which ended our adventure then and there as our armour had broke. Here's my friend's completed Atrium base: https://gyazo.com/90f43d287230c0550ef81abb4ef3659d Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
