Although Wax is not used in many recipes, it will still be a very important resource for crafting lighting items. We also decided to light up our base to feel comfortable here even at night and found out some of the best methods on how to get and use Wax in Enshrouded.

Content of the guide: Next, you will learn where to look for Wax, how to create it yourself, and which recipes require this resource.

  • You can find Wax by destroying Beehives or vases.
  • You can also get Wax by creating your own Beehive Farm.
  • You need Wax Torches and candles.

Enshrouded: How to Obtain Wax

Enshrouded Wax

Very important resource for crafting lighting items.

The main source for Wax extraction will be beehives. In general, there are two methods to access them: manually search or create them yourself. Let's start with the first one. You can find them on trees. They look like large white cocoons. If you see one, just walk up to it and click the interact button to collect the resources. You will get Wax as well as Honey.

You won't find hives often, but they're not rare either. In most cases, they can be found at the starting locations, so you shouldn't have a problem if enemies attack unexpectedly because they will be weak. Here are some locations where you can find hives:

  • To the east of the starting Flame Altar.
  • To the north of the starting Flame Altar.
  • Between Braelyn Bridge and Longkeep.

In addition, you can also find Wax by breaking vases that can be located near Ancient Spires or Flame Shrines.

How to Create your Wax Farm

Now let's move on to a more effective method of obtaining Wax. To do this, you will need to create your own Honey Beehive, but there are a few requirements before you can do so. First, you will need to unlock the recipes. To do this, you will need to complete the quest “Stronger Together”, go north, and visit the Ancient Vault to free the Farmer from there. If you've already done it, then proceed to the next step, which is to create a Beehive Smoker. If you don't craft it, you can't access the Honey Beehive craft, so here are the resources you'll need:

  • Sand x2
  • Lump of Clay x3
  • String x3

Here, you can see how Beehive Smoker looks in the game.

Once this is done, you can finally build the Honey Beehive. Here are the resources you will need for this:

  • Wood Logs x4
  • Lump of Clay x4
  • Straw x20

Once you have built a Honey Beehive, you will have permanent access to resources such as Wax and Honey. If you like, you can build many of them near your base and periodically visit it to collect these resources. This is a great idea because both will be very useful throughout the game.

Enshrouded: How to Use Wax

The main purpose for which you'll want to find Wax is to upgrade Flane to level 3, so this is the first way to use this resource. Otherwise, it's only needed to create lighting elements. Here are all the recipes that require Wax:

  • Wax Torch
  • Candle
