Though at first, the world of Core Keeper may not seem that dangerous, you can still get easily killed if you’re not careful. And every death will cause you to lose all your items, so you should take every possible precaution. The most basic one would be crafting armor.

Occasionally, you can find random pieces randomly when exploring the caverns, but this is hardly the best source of these items.

To craft your own armor, you’ll first need an anvil, which can be made using 8 copper bars. In order to turn copper ore into copper bars, you’ll first need a furnace, which can be crafted at the crafting table using 20 Dirt Wall and 10 wood.

After making the anvil, place it somewhere in your base. From there, you’ll be able to use many materials found in the game to craft armor, starting with wood.

Armor Pieces

There are three armor slots your character can use. Helmets require the least resources but also offer less protection. Pants are better and more costly, but the best option is usually the piece covering your torso.

You should generally aim to gain more resources for better pieces, but if you’ve only obtained some materials by accident and don’t know a way to get more, crafting a better helmet straight away is advisable as well.

Primal Sandglasses are a new mechanic for exploration that you’ll find in the Ruins of King Deshret. Flipping one will start a timed challenge where you’ll need to flip other Primal Sandglasses. Doing so within the time will grant you a reward.

In this guide we’ll teach you how to beat one of these challenges.

The Sandglass Location

To find the Primal Sandglass that rewards you with a Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest you’ll want to go west of The Mausoleum of King Deshret.

Get to the red-circled area – there’s a Four-Leaf Sigil around to make the travel faster. You’ll end in an area with one of the squared-floor panels that you can activate by interacting with the book front of it. This will create an updraft that will get you to a Dendroculus waiting on top, plus a Forged Primal Light.

From that position you can look at the second area, the one we encircled in a blue circle in the first image. Take the Forged Primal Light to the panel there to create a Primal Sandglass.

The Sandglass Time Trial Challenge

Once you flip the Primal Sandglass you’ll have29 seconds to flip the other two. It may look simple, but there’s invisible walls that’ll make tricky getting to the others.

First you’ll want to do a straight-line run towards where the red arrow points: the part where you can see stone steps rather than sand.

From here turn to the right and keep going forward until you crash against the invisible wall. Then employ some wall-hugging: move while sticking close to the wall so that at the moment it stops being there, your character will get past it to the other side.

When you ‘see’ the door get past it and turn back in direction to the hourglass. This time the wall will be to the right-side of your character. Make your way to the Sandglass normally, and we’re on to the last one.

From that sandglass you’ll run straight to the second batch of stone-floor.

At that point, turn 90° degrees to the right until you see another invisible wall flare up blue. You’ll turn 90° degrees to your right again. Make sure to wall-hug a little so that you can see where the wall ends.

After you’ve cleared the wall do a full turn around, leaving it to left-side of your body and run in a straight line like you were trying to get the torch close to the last Sandglass. You’ll be clear off the wall in a matter of seconds and you can make a beeline for the last Sandglass. Flip it.

Now just walk forward in the direction of the Four-Leaf Sigil, but don’t use it. If you look down you’ll be able to see the Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest to its right.
