How to Get Bone Fragments

Enter Dungeons

Obtained from Dungeons.png

Dungeons like Burial Chambers and Sunken Crypts are home to skeletons that mainly drop bone fragments. Look for these places in Black Forest and Swamp biomes respectively!

Dungeons Guide: Locations and Types

Look for Evil Bone Piles

Bone Piles

Evil Bone Piles are the Skeleton spawners of the game. They appear in the Burial Chamber dungeons and occasionally in the swamp. If you want a consistent source of bone fragments, look for one and camp there. Be careful though, Skeletons can overwhelm you if you don't manage their numbers properly!
