Looking for some Salt in Enshrouded? This is a vital ingredient for you, particularly if you're a Hunter or focused on Stealth Builds. In this guide, we'll take you through how to get Salt in Enshrouded.

The expansive world of Embervale in Enshrouded is filled with quests, creatures, and bandits, providing ample opportunities for combat and looting. The survival RPG encourages exploration and crafting, letting you create the items you need to survive.

Where to find Salt in Enshrouded

In your initial days of playing Enshrouded, finding Salt can be puzzling. You stumble upon some here and there, but a decent source, yielding more than one or two Salt drops, is hard to get a hold of. The locations are challenging to reach, and the nodes don't replenish resources promptly.

To mine Salt in Enshrouded, it's best to get your hands on the Scrappy Pickaxe. You can unlock it after interacting with the Blacksmith. Salt can be found in the walls of the mine, protruding out of the rocks.

If you're looking for a plentiful supply of Salt, make your way towards the Shroud. Despite the constant threat of spawning Critters and enemies, the Shroud holds valuable Salt Mines.

Once you've unlocked the Salt Mines on your map, these will become the best Salt farms. It will be worth battling through the waves of Shroud enemies, as you can collect up to 100 stacks of Salt in a minute.

We recommended the Egerton Salt Mines in the Shroud if you want lots of Salt. Travel northwest from your spawn point to reach here, but you might come across Level 5 enemies. If you're going on foot, you can take them out with ranged weapons, and make sure they don't do too much damage.

Ensure that you are well-prepared anyway, by equipping good armour and shield. You can pick up upgraded weapons from the Blacksmith to increase your chances of surviving the Shroud.

You can also craft the Grappling Hook or Glider which can help you travel the distance, which can be crafted with Metal Scraps, Shroud Wood, and Animal Furs.

To efficiently mine Salt in this area, ensure you possess the Scrappy Pickaxe by consulting the Blacksmith in Enshrouded. Harvest Salt from the walls of the mines, where it protrudes from the rocks in abundance.

Alternatively, if you're not too fond of exploring the Shroud, you can find smaller amounts of Salt in vases around significant areas like Flame Shrines and Ancient Spires. However, the quantities are considerably less compared to the stacks found in Salt Mines.

Salt will help you to craft Bows with Arrows and the Hunter armour. To make the Hunter armour, you'll require Dried Fur, and that means gathering quite a bit of Salt. Well, now you know how to mine this useful ingredient.
