The Open Sea

As the name suggest it, the Ocean is a large, empty body of water. It is accessible by boats, since swimming in it quickly depletes your stamina that would cause you to drown.

Build A Boat To Explore The Open Water & Go Fishing

The only way for you to get to places like the Swamp. Building a boat don't just give you the opportunity to explore but also to go fishing for Raw Fish meat with the use of a Fishing Rod

Collect Chitin

Chitin can be obtained by looking for a Leviathan. A Leviathan is an extremely large, ocean-dwelling creature that appears as an island.

Once you have located a Leviathan, look for an Abyssal barnacles and use a Pickaxe on it to scavenge some Chitin. But, you better hurry because the Leviathan will give a howling sound that will cause it to submerge if their Abyssal barnacles are mined.

Chitin can also be used as one of the materials to create the Abyssal Harpoon. Since it can be very useful to attack the Serpent lurking in the waters.

Hunt For Serpents

Serpents are snake-like creatures that lurks in the Ocean. Once killed they will drop Serpent Meat, Serpent Scale & Serpent Trophy.
