Tallest mountain on the island, as seen from south, during sunrise

Volcano is the tallest mountain in the game, located near the center of the Island, towards the Blue Obelisk. See also Far's Peak which is often confused for a Volcano, due to its flat peak.

The name "Volcano" is an unofficial one, used by the community. The in-game location is named an "Unknown Region", much like Herbivore Island and the areas under the Obelisks.

Surroundings[edit | edit source]

Volcano itself, much like most of the other peaks, is dead rock, with approach to the summit often patrolled by wild Argentavis.png Argentavis and an occasional Scorpion.png Scorpion or Sabertooth.png Sabertooth. The surrounding area is filled with dense forests and two rivers; one to the north-west and one to the south.

At the foot of the mountain, to the East, the central cave can be found with the Artifact Of The Clever.

Summit[edit | edit source]

Volcano has a clear summit crater, with a large, open space, and a descending path, leading between the rocks to the north. Temperatures vary; during the night it's freezing cold, but during the day it's burning hot.

The summit is somewhat similar to Whitesky Peak in that it has a flat area surrounded by larger rocks, but here these are pronouncing rocks instead of a crater rim. There are also far fewer resources on the summit of the Volcano than on Whitesky Peak.

Resources[edit | edit source]

Typically for mountain terrains, Metal.png Metal and Obsidian.png Obsidian spawn on the slopes and on the summit, while Crystal.png Crystals can only be found near the mountain top.

Plants contain Berries.png Berries, Fiber.png Fiber, Rare Flower.png Rare Flowers, Plant Species X Seed.png Plant Species X Seed and other Seeds.png Seeds.

Climbing[edit | edit source]

The only possible approach to the peak on foot is from the West - the path begins at the coordinates 43.5°/33.3° and leads up between the rocks towards North-North-East. An alternate, quicker way to reach the peak is by using a flying mounts, such as Pteranodon.png Pteranodon or Argentavis.png Argentavis - the large, empty summit crater makes a perfect and safe landing ground with no wild creatures inside.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • One of the best places to get metal and obsidian is the top, as there are no hostile creatures.
