How to Get Core Wood

Get Core Wood From Pine Trees!

Get Core Wood from Pine Trees

Core Wood is obtained by chopping Pine Trees in the Black Forest biome with any Axe. You can even use the Stone Axe to get Core Wood early, but can be difficult as this biome is full of aggressive monsters, so be careful!

Bait Troll Attacks

When you are able to find a Troll in the Black Forest biome, you can bait and evade its attacks on the Pine Trees. The Troll's attacks easily break down the trees in to raw materials for you to harvest them later even before beating the first boss Eikthyr.

Can Be Spawned with Console Command

If you don't mind using cheats to obtain it, Core Wood can easily be spawned with the console command.

To spawn the item, first turn on cheat codes by typing devcommands in the F5 console, and use the spawn RoundLog command to create the item.
