Knotroot is primarily found in caves. However, to harvest Knotroot, you’ll need more than just the basic Common Forest Axe. Instead you’ll need a Uncommon Forest Axe which is crafted from the first upgrade of your Crafting Bench. Here’s a detailed guide:

  • Gather 3 Shells by eliminating Rollers
  • Build a Crafting Bench and a Lumber Mill
