In Spiritfarer, you get to explore islands to gather resources -your maple logs, copper ores, and whatnot- and then transform them into your ship. Its close look beckons you to row to Stella’s boat, and once aboard the ship, it is tough to let go of the controls, I promise you. I think the mundane aspect of things and the chore aspect is how farming games handle things.

It puts you in a position of comforting repetition, but the world’s whimsy also contrasts its mundaneness. Spiritfarer’s world is conceptually complicated: you encounter weird creatures and have fantastical events. So, the coziness comes from the fact that everything you see and even everything you can do is quite relatable, but the outcome could be fantastical.

That’s the core gameplay loop: you accumulate resources and spend them to progress through the story. However, its simplicity also makes it complex: the core of the game is one of management. It’s not hard to get lost in the vast ocean, unable to find that specific material you were looking for.

The learning curve is very subtle, and the satisfaction of seeing the ship getting bigger and bigger, built up and populated, is pure delight. But, before you get there, there are loads of resources to gather and transform. In this Spiritfarer Resources guide, I’ll walk you through each resource, where to find it, and how to use production buildings to transform it.

My Bottom-Line Up Front

Thunder Lotus Games defines Spiritfarer as a cozy game about managing death. They forgot to mention that before sending each spirit off to their deaths, you’d have to manage the islands’ resources to satisfy their every need.

This guide walks you through each step of resource management in Spiritfarer. In case you’re running short on time and can’t digest the whole article, just grab the subsequent bites:

Step 1: Acquiring the resources

To acquire resources, you can either

  • Find them scattered across the game’s islands
  • Purchase them at Raccoon’s Inc.

Step 2: Putting the resources to use

  • With the resources you acquired, you can now make new ones using your ship’s tools: the Crusher, the Foundry, the Smithy, the Garden, the Field, the Orchard, the Sawmill, the Windmill, and the Loom.

The Full Resources Guide for Spiritfarer

All Resource Types Available in Spiritfarer

Wood

Spiritfarer Resources Guide: How to Find and Use Every Resource in the Game - Indie Game Culture (2)

You can see wood logs on the islands available in the world. You don’t need a tool per se since your trusty companion, Daffodil, will gladly do the job for you. Early in the game, you’ll mostly be picking up Maple Logs, but you’ll soon run into Oak, Ash, and Pine trees in the second and third regions of the game.

Rocks

Spiritfarer Resources Guide: How to Find and Use Every Resource in the Game - Indie Game Culture (3)

Rocks can also be mined from different locations in the game. You have got limestones, marbles, slates, and so on. Your safest bet is to visit any of the mines or quarries to find them. They are helpful for building or cooking, in the case of coal.

Metals

Spiritfarer Resources Guide: How to Find and Use Every Resource in the Game - Indie Game Culture (4)

You can also mine ores that can be turned into ingots in the Foundry. Across the islands, you’ll come across copper, iron, silver, and even gold. Yes, there are diamonds. No, there haven’t been any reports of amethyst… yet.

Seeds

Spiritfarer Resources Guide: How to Find and Use Every Resource in the Game - Indie Game Culture (5)

Seeds are the most accessible resource to come across and put to use. They can be found in treasure chests or bought at the shop. As you might imagine, you need to plant them on a Field, Garden or Orchard. Although Spiritfarer isn’t Stardew Valley, there are lots of fruits and vegetables you can grow. Some seeds can grow types of cloth, which is our next category.

Cloth

Spiritfarer Resources Guide: How to Find and Use Every Resource in the Game - Indie Game Culture (6)

All fibers that can be gathered and all the threads and textiles that may be created at the loom are collectively referred to as cloth. You may plant a linen seed, get some linen cloth and then turn it into a linen thread or even a linen fabric once you’ve improved your Loom.

How to Find and Buy Resources in Spiritfarer

Finding Resources

Resources are scattered throughout Spiritfarer’s world. That means you’ll only have to go through 4 regions and over 36 locations to find them. Fret not, my friend; I have got you covered.

In this section, I have outlined where you can find resources, which resources can be found, and how many can be collected.

Buying Resources

Spiritfarer Resources Guide: How to Find and Use Every Resource in the Game - Indie Game Culture (10)

Some resources can’t be found in the wild and must be bought instead. To buy them, you need to approach the raccoon from Racoon Inc. and tell him you have the glims. The only issue is that not every Raccoon Inc. shop has the same resources, which forces you to sail across the sea from one shop to another until you find what you need. Of course, you could follow this guide instead.

How to Use Resources in Spiritfarer

How Crafting Tasks work in Spiritfarer

Unlike other farming sims, you’ll be able to manufacture and refine goods on the portable ground: Stella’s ship. The crafting tasks will have more complex chains each time; the regulars to management games can already imagine what it’s all about. Suddenly you find yourself with the kitchen at full throttle to prepare one character’s favorite dish. At the same time, you manufacture composite resources in the smithy, which in turn will allow you to improve the cabin of another. At the same time, you wait for the mulberry wool to grow to make the thread that will allow you to sew the fabric needed for a particular order.

Let’s sum up the tools available on your ship:

Production Buildings

Albert, the shark, will sell you production buildings in exchange for some glims and resources. (Pssst, he’s at Albert’s Shipyard’s Blueprint Station). Let’s go over each of them in detail.

The Crusher:

You can crush rocks into powder and turn sunflower seeds and olives into cooking oil.

Using the crusher is quite simple; in goes the raw material, and out comes a smashed version. Here’s a quick rundown of each:

You can grind grains into flour. This one’s pretty straightforward: in goes the grain; out comes the flour.

FAQs

Question: What Is The Ideal Ship Size In Spiritfarer?

Answer: Try to compensate for the ship’s size with the project table’s improvements. A huge ship is worthless if you have nothing to build on, just as a small ship will not support everything you need to build.

Question: What Can I Do If Daffodil Disappears?

Answer: If at some point Daffodill disappears (it happened to me), go to the options menu, set him as the main character at the controls, and give Stella control of the keyboard. Save the game, exit the game and enter again. In my case, it was solved. I read of cases of people who tried the demo where the kitty disappeared and couldn’t get it back; without it, you can’t cut down the trees.

Question: What Is The Best Way To Do Spirit Quests In Spiritfarer?

Answer: Try to balance each character’s quest line, advancing a little in each plot. This will lead you to explore the map almost involuntarily. Otherwise, you will waste time exploring on your own, only for the story to take you a while later to the same place.

Parting Words

This guide has walked you through each step of your resource management journey. If you keep it at hand while playing the game, you won’t get stuck and will be able to beat it in no time.

After all, Spiritfarer’s cycle is relatively straightforward: Sail, discover islands, craft resources, upgrade the ship, make new rooms or tools, and try to make your passengers feel comfortable by fulfilling their wishes and requests. When they are ready, they will ask you to take them to the eternal door, which will end their stay with you, but you still have more passengers to look after and new souls to find.
