Location

The Whitesky Peak (previously known as the The Radiant) sits in the northwest of The Island, with one of the three obelisks hovering above it.

Overview[edit | edit source]

This location lays in the tundra region, where it is recommend to use fur armor to resist the cold.

Surroundings[edit | edit source]

The Whitesky Peak is part of the Tundra biome. It is filled with roving packs of direwolves, and herds of mammoths. The lone Sabertooth stalks the large antlered Megaloceros in this diverse land. Hypothermic insulation is a must here since the temperatures are nearly always below freezing. This is not a place for new survivors since even hide armor will not keep you warm, only fur and campfires. For those survivors who plan on living here permanently it is recommended to increase fortitude, as this will make you more resilient to the bitter cold. Wolves are very quick so a dino escort would not go amiss for defense. Rexes are also indigenous on the mountain and can be found wandering further into the valley. Beware as the Giganotosaurus also stalks this area.

These dangers do not come without reward. The mountain is rich with metal, crystal, and obsidian. Crystal can be found throughout, and oil rocks are on the cliffs near the oceans. Silica pearls are easily obtainable in the shallows, even without scuba gear. The wandering mammoths, deer, and wolves are a rich source of pelt, which can be fashioned into fur armor, or traded to those without the mettle to venture into these dangerous lands.

If you can survive, the Whitesky Peak can be a wonderful home.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Before the Snow Biome update (216.0) the mountain was called 'The Radiant'.
  • To survive with hide armor while you try to get fur armor: Place two Standing Torches on a Stone Foundation. Campfires will work as well, but don't burn as long. Stand between the two until your health is full. You'll then have about 10 minutes to run out for Pelts or resources until you have to come back and warm up again. Works well until you get your fur. Having high Health will likely help more than Fortitude, as Fortitude alone will not be enough to protect you from the freezing temperatures.
    • Using a Raft is also a viable way to acquire Pelt, as all creatures which provide it cannot swim well. As long as you have a decent supply of arrows, it is very easy to kite them out into the water and shoot them until they die. Once cleared out, dive into the water and harvest their corpses, though be wary of any Megalodon in the waters. This method also allows you to keep Campfires or Standing Torches right next to you the entire time, protecting you from the cold.
