  • Your First Autumn:

    As a first playthrough mission, get yourself a minimum set of 4 gears so you can have a smooth autumn. It wouldn’t hurt if you find more though.

Before you reach day 5, you need to set up your base. Make sure it is as near to a wormhole as possible ; try to put your hot and cold bonfires on either side of the wormhole. Generally, these wormholes are incredibly useful ; you can construct a hound area on the other side and each time you get swarmed by enemies, you can jump over. One of the best Wormholes you can get are the ones that are present in your frequently visited regions. However, they are far away, for example the Antlion desert or the Mooncaller area .

Furthermore, you need to have a cave entrance that is roughly between 5 to 10 seconds away from your base entrance. Word of caution, never ever build your base near graves, ponds, walrus, camps, or beefalos.

Don't Starve Together Steps

  • Food Resources : Attainable food resources are the following:

Drying and Hunting : Crockpot food contain meatballs and meaty stew, best suits wolfgang and wigfrid.

Farming, Beekeeping, and Casual hunting : Spider nests and hound strike – Best suits wormwood.

Hunting + Beekeeping – Honey represents one of the best foods in the whole game.

Try to make food the least of your problems and rather focus intensively on improving your resources of food and edibles, automate them as much as possible .

Consider hunting Koalefants religiously after day 15 and ensure you have enough koalefant trucks for each player and silk in order to create a vest with them.

  • During Day 12 – 18:  you’ll need to fetch a fundamental asset; travel to the caves and destroy 5 bunny hutches so you can build 2 cave entrances near your base. Never enter the caves from the cave entrance next to your base. Bunnymen will remain in their houses during daytime in the cave. Once you start hammering their houses they’ll immediately strike. A smart tactic would be to tank them and try to kill each one by one. Bunnymen will turn black and drop beard hair instead of bunny puffs so don’t get that fool you. You can also collect carrots that spawn near their cribs.
