How to claim a spot for your base in Enshrouded

Home is where you hang your hat... Or where you place your Flame Altar.

You start Enshrouded after the shroud has finally taken down Embervale, and now you have no home. Now that you’re on your own, it’s important to establish a new home in direct defiance of the shroud. Knowing where you want your base is one thing, but how do you claim the spot? Luckily, we’ve got you covered with our guide below.

How to build a Flame Altar in Enshrouded

The only way to claim a spot to build your base in Enshrouded is to build a Flame Altar in direct defiance to the shroud. To do this, you just need five stone. Walk up to big rocks on the ground and press when you’re close enough to collect them. When you have enough, head to your menu and go to the Crafting tab.

In the Crafting tab you’ll see a lot of different things you can build. You’re going to see the Flame Altar in the Essentials category, and it will have two exclamation marks next to it if it’s your first altar of the game. When you’re clicked the Flame Altar, it will give you a short description about it marking where your home is. Press and hold Spacebar to craft the Flame Altar.

Walk up to the area you want to put your Flame Altar in and press the left-mouse button to place it. If you want to mess with the way its situated, you can always use these controls:

  • R: Rotate 90 degrees
  • R with middle mouse wheel: Rotate back and forth depending on where the wheel was scrolled
  • X: Activate Snapping

When placed, the Altar will be a source of light for you, burning red with magic balls evaporating from it. This Altar cannot be used to cook, it is just a way to claim your own spot and build a home or base. This is the perfect spot for a bed, workbench, and your house.
