Where to get Fossilized Bone in Enshrouded

The best place to Fossilized Bone location to farm in Enshrouded is the carcass just west of the Nomad Highlands Ancient Spire fast travel spot. The large bones are sandwiched between the tower and the Northern Caravan Camp and Rattlebleak to the east, and the Umber Hollow to the south. Check the image above for the exact spot.

Given the size of the carcass and the fact that it respawns whenever you quit and reload a save, this spot should provide a limitless source of Fossilized Bone. It’s also right next to the Ancient Spire, useful for fast-travel. You’ll find plenty of other spots throughout the Nomad Highlands and Kindlewastes, though. Look out for large bones or giant skeletons on the map or, alternatively, destroy breakable items and loot chests in these biomes. Fossilized Bones are a common drop.
