Slime Rancher – How to Survive the Wilds

If you’re new to exploring the wilds or have done it before, we know it’s dangerous to wander around without a plan. The goal is to gather Kookadobas while staying away from the Feral Saber Slimes. This guide will help you, the Rancher, avoid becoming food for those hungry Saber Slimes.

Survive the Wilds Guide

The Right Tools

Firstly it is recommended You should not go in the wilds without proper equipment. Thankfully the 7Zee Corporation was generous to provide you some with handy tools.

To make sure you leave the wilds with as much Kookabodas you’ll need these upgrades:

  • The Dash Boots.
  • The Jetpack.
  • The Heart Module Upgrades(Those are important if you are a biting magnet).
  • The Pulse Wave(very Important for evading the Feral Slime’s Stomp Attack).
  • And lastly The Power Core upgrades.

Now that you are loaded up….We can start the next step.

Know Your Area

Every Rancher Worth his plort will know each and every Nook and Cranny of the place.

And so should you! So instead of jumping immediately to collecting Kookabodas, instead take a few minutes to observe The Wilds and take note of the slimes the inhabit the different areas of The Wilds, and maybe even make a map for yourself! Most Importantly you’ll want to pin point the area where the mud ball of Kookabodas spawn those are worth 5 Kookabodas!

Stock Up and Self Defense

Now at this point you are all prepared right…? Well you are wrong my dear Rancher!

Heart Module upgrades and Pulse waves can only get you so long, If you want to truly learn to evade and dodge those feral slimes. You gotta use your tools right.

Here are some tips on evading or calming the Feral slimes down:

Prepare for the worse case scenario

Desperate times call for desperate measures, and when your are on 50 HP and you can see a Feral Slime about to stomp you, you better counter it with your 7Zee Pulse Wave, or if you are out of energy it won’t hurt to use one of your Kookabodas to push the slime away.

Load up on Food

The best thing about Kookabodas is that they only need one compartment to store in your vacpack, so why not use the remaining 3 on food to feed the Feral slimes? Which is where Ogden’s Spicy Tofu comes in handy, However if you don’t have enough consider stocking up on Hen Hens, Carrots, and Pogo Fruit (Any Fruit Veggies or Meat is fine but the most common is the best).

Note: And it’s as easy as a delicious Kookaboda Omelette with Painted Hen Eggs! And remember, your tools are your best friend in The Wilds (right after the Kookaboda of course).

General Tips

  • Mix largos that eat fruit or veggies, but not crystals. Odd onions give you bonus carrots.
  • Put fruit-eating largos together and veggie-eating ones in a different spot. Tier 1 drones can then feed them and collect plorts on their own.
  • If you use the refinery, mix pinks two or more times. Send their plorts to the refinery all the time because you need a bunch.
  • The 7zee rewards get better later on. You can get toys that calm slimes and the top extractors.
  • Get ready for quantum slimes ahead of time. Keep them happy or they teleport away. Never mix them with hunters because the largos get mad really fast.
  • Put tangles and dervishes by themselves, away from other slimes. Their vines and tornados can make them eat other plorts and turn into tarrs. The Grotto, Overgrowth, or trader areas are good spots.
  • A silo for extra veggies from farms comes in handy to feed gordos.
  • You can find treasure pods in trader quest spots, but only the slimeulation ones have stuff besides decorations. Saber plorts just make decorations.
  • Mochi’s quests can only be finished once a day for each path.
  • To get the “She’s on Fire” achievement, grab 100 pink slimes and jump above the hoop.
