In Don’t Starve Together, you’d be foolish not to set up camp near animals that offer built-in defence.
When building a base in Don’t Starve Together, it’s important to think about your natural surroundings, as it’s usually your way to resources or to regret. In Don’t Starve Together, your main goal is to not die, which is sometimes easier said than done. Choosing the best place for your base is a big part of that.
With so many biomes in Don’t Starve Together, it can be hard to find the best one for a base. We’ve gone through all of them so you don’t have to.
Rocks, Flint, Gold, Nitre, and Ice, which are all very important in the Constant, can be found in large amounts in the Rockyland biome. If Maxwell and his Shadow minions set up a base here, the team would be able to make lots of Gunpowder, Crock Pots, Wigfrid Helmets, Ice Flingomatics, and much more.
But plants can’t grow through Rocky Turf, which can be used to make Cobblestone, so you’d have to dig it up and move what you need. So, it’s not the best place for newbies to start out. On top of that, the Spider Queen set piece can be found in Rockylands. You’ll have plenty of silk, at least…?
If you like wide open areas, you might like the Savanna biome. Aside from Grass Tufts, not much grows out here, but there are plenty of tasty Rabbits who call this place home. It can be hard to plan a base around their dens, but they can always be dug up and moved, which takes away the place where a Rabbit can spawn.
Beefalo will also be built into your base as a way to protect it. Your Don’t Starve Together fighters will take 34 damage from these mobs. They will also work together to attack Hound waves and bosses. Be careful in the spring, though, when these furry animals are trying to mate. This can make them very protective, so if you get too close, they will attack you. But if you wear a Beefalo Hat, they might not pay attention to you.
Even though this difficult biome might not be the best choice for new Backrooms players, the Swamp is a good place to start for those who want a challenge, a head start on mob resources (like Silk, Spider Glands, Tentacle Spikes, and Tentacle Spots), and easy access to the native Reed plants.
If you play as either Wurt or Webber, this can be a lot easier. Wurt can easily spot Tenacles and pass other Merms, and Webber can get help in fight from other Spiders he meets. And since Hounds, Beargers, Deerclops, and other dangerous creatures live in the Swamp, their built-in animal helpers can be useful.
Sunken Forest Caves
Setting up a safe place in the dangerous Caves might seem like the wrong thing to do, but it has a lot of benefits. For example, you won’t get too hot in the summer or have to deal with wildfires or vacation bosses. Depthworms are the only thing you’ll have to worry about down here.
Most of the time, these places have Grass Tufts, Twigs and Trees, and Lightflowers that you can use to refill your Miner Hat and give you some light during the day. Most characters will constantly lose Sanity, but Maxwell and Walter don’t seem to mind being with the Bunnymen. You won’t be able to have Pigs or Bees, but that’s a small price to pay for a strong defence.
If Logs are always making you mad, why don’t you just move to a Forest? Maxwell and Woody are both good choices for this biome because they can clear out large areas of land in a fraction of the time it would take other characters. Just remember about Petrification so that your Logs don’t turn into Stone.
In most forests, there are even pigs close that you can use for cheap labour or handy resources. Be careful though, because there is so much wood close, Forest biomes are a hotspot for Wildfire in the Summer.
We put the Deciduous Forest at the top of our list because that’s where you’ll always find the Pig King and his group of pigs if you follow the tracks to their base. Wormholes, which can take you anywhere in the world, the Glommer Statue (and the Pan Flutes that always show up near it), and Sinkholes are also important generations.
Catcoons are always close by and can drop useful things or provide Large Meat and Cat Tails. Just watch out for the Tree Guardians, and remember that if you cut down too many Birchnut Trees, Poison Birchnut Trees will grow in their place if you’re not careful. Also, Wortox won’t be welcome in the Pig King’s village, so think about who you choose for your character.
The Oasis Desert is the best of the two deserts.This little paradise is safe from wildfires in the summer and is a great place to get away from it all and relax while fishing, but only if you have the Desert Goggles. Without them, this haven becomes a prison, because when Antlion shows her ugly head in the summer, the Sandstorm starts, and it’s hard to walk through it without the Goggles.
Volt Goats can only be found in the Desert, but they can be grown for their Horns, Electric Milk, and Cactus, which is a great way to boost your Sanity.There are also tumbleweeds in this area, and catching them can be helpful because they drop almost every resource in Don’t Starve Together, and sometimes even rare gems!
Who ever said it was bad to play it easy? The Grasslands biome is full of lush plants like Carrots and Berry Bushes that provide food all the time. There are also busy Beehives and even the odd Pond. There are a lot of Flowers that will give you Butterflies, and the only enemies you’ll find are the oddly aggressive Frogs that will grow in Ponds.
Even though you’ll have to move around to get other things, if you set up next to a road, you’ll have plenty of room to spread out at the end of each day in the Grasslands.
