How to Get Shroud Cores in Enshrouded

You can start to collect Shroud Cores early on in Enshrouded, because they drop from boss monsters found in Elixir Wells, Temples and other point of interest locations in the Shroud. You can find the first Elixir Well in the Shroud area directly to the east of Braelyn Bridge. This area can be easily reached from your base at the start of the game. Simply head northwest towards the visible bridge.

You can’t cross the bridge initially, but just to the right/east of it you can follow a path which will take you down into the Shroud. Then follow the path north to find the first Elixir Well which will have a Fell Thunderbrute boss to defeat. Boss monsters such as Fell Thunderbrutes, Fell Sicklescythe and Fell Monstrositys will all drop Shroud Cores.

Flame Altar Upgrades - Enshrouded

The most important thing you’ll want to use your Shroud Cores for in Enshrouded is upgrading your Flame Alters. Upgrading your Flame Alter (as opposed to Strengthening it) expands protected area out around your Flame Alter. Therefore you’ll have more room to build and grow your base.

Additionally, you will also want Shroud Cores so that you can craft Magic Chests. Magic chests work much the same as regular storage chests. Depending on their size, they hold the same amount of items as regular chests. However, what makes them ‘magic’ is that they connect automatically to all crafting stations and craftpeople. Therefore, theses are highly desirable because you’ll do less running back and forth between storage chests to do all of your crafting.
