How to get clay in Grounded
Grounded is a new Obsidian RPG that has a ton of mechanics in it, and a surprising amount of depth. Grounded crafting recipes, in particular, are a major source of much of the game’s depth. And with all of those recipes, you need materials to make them. Let’s talk about how to get one hard-to-find resource in particular, clay.
Use the map above marked out with the red boxes to get the clay. The clay can usually be found as a large brown-colored stone that looks very distinct against the ground. You can harvest clay in Grounded with a shovel. To make a shovel, you need a few basic components and some resources. Check out the list below to figure out what you need to get. You will need to bring a Chopping Tool of some kind to harvest some of these resources.
To make a shovel you will need the following resources:
- 2 x Sprig
- 3 x Woven Fiber
- 1 x Acorn Shell
Start by heading to the large oak tree by the northern end of the map, and look for fallen acorns. Bash these open with any hammer to gain the shells and sometimes the fruits inside. These can both be used for crafting of various resources.
For the Woven Fiber, you need to analyze Plant Fiber on the computer. Take it back there once you find some and it should unlock the Woven Fiber recipe for crafting in the Materials tab of the Crafting menu.
Sprigs are just harvested from any of the plants at the start of the game.
