How to get Nightingale Stone Blocks

During the tutorial missions with the enigmatic Puck, you’ll craft a Makeshift Mining Pick. Once you’ve left the tutorial mission into your chosen biome – forest, desert, or swamp – in an Abeyance realm, you’ll be able to mine Stone Blocks by locating small boulders to whack with your mining pick.

No matter which biome you choose, look for large outcroppings of rock with smaller boulders surrounding them. These are usually located farther from clusters of trees or near water. While you cannot mine these larger boulders, the small boulders will break apart and produce stone blocks for all your early-game building needs, such as crude stone floors, walls, and more, which come highly recommended over the crude wooden counterparts as they’re more durable.

Do note that there are different kinds of Stone Blocks. The ones in the forest biome are of the sandstone type, though as of yet we’re uncertain if certain types are required for different builds.

With this information under your proverbial belt, you shouldn’t have an issue finding all the stone blocks required to build a little base of operations.
