Unlock The Enshrouded Oil
Enshrouded Oil is a crafting material used to make various potions and items in Enshrouded.
To unlock the Oil recipe, you must complete the quest for the Alchemist NPC.
The quest involves finding the Scientific Instruments located in a bird’s nest at the Eldermere Dam Excavation Site.
1. Rescue The Alchemist
The quest starts when you rescue the Alchemist from the Ancient Vault in the Springlands and summon him to your base.
He will tell you about the essential scientific instruments for his research.
Further, he will give you some notes that lead you to various points of interest in the Kindlewastes.
Additionally, you can find clues about the location of the Instruments.
2. Eldermere Dam Excavation Site
The final clue will direct you to the Eldermere Dam Excavation Site, east of the Nomad Highlands Tower.
You can use the Glider, which you can unlock from the Blacksmith’s quest, to travel faster and avoid the shroud-filled chasm.
When you reach the excavation site, you will see a large dam built into the mountain, with some scaffolding and tents around it.
3. Reach The Nest
You will notice some large birds flying around the area.
These are Vultures guarding the nest where the Scientific Instruments are hidden.
Significantly, the nest is located on the east side of the excavation site, on a ledge near the top of the dam.
Thus, you can use the Glider to reach the nest, but be careful of the Vultures, as they are aggressive and can deal much damage.
You may want to equip some armor and weapons before you attempt this.
4. Find The Scientific Instruments
Once you reach the nest, you will find the Scientific Instruments inside.
They are metal devices that look like a telescope, a microscope, and a scale.
You can interact with them to collect them and complete the quest.
You can then return to your base and talk to the Alchemist, who will be happy to see the Instruments.
