You can make Nails early on in Enshrouded by collecting Metal Scraps and rescuing the Blacksmith survivor. One of the very first quests you will get after you set a Flame Alter down in your first base will direct you to find the Blacksmith’s Ancient Vault. After you awaken him in the vault, return to your base and build a shelter for him. Then summon/place him inside the shelter and you’ll be able to speak with him to craft things.

Furthermore, once you have the Blacksmith available you’ll also need to collect Metal Scraps. You will find Metal Scraps in Savenger Camps and looted from Scavenger enemies. These camps can be found scattered across the world map and typically you’ll be facing melee and ranger type enemies there. However, be cautious because some can contain more difficult boss enemies.
