If you’re not quite sure what to do with Flax in Muck, this guide is for you. You can use those blue flowers to craft Flax Fibers for one of the more unique armor sets. Similar to Chunkium Armor, it also has a set bonus when you wear every piece. While it may not be the best armor, it’s useful for wandering your world quickly.
Continue reading my Muck guide below to learn how to make Flax Fibers and what you can do with them. This is also important for beating the game.
How to Make Flax Fibers in Muck
You won’t be able to turn Flax into Flax Fibers immediately since you’ll need to craft a Fletching Table workstation. Fortunately, this doesn’t require getting fancy tools to make. All you’ll need is the first tier of tools, wooden. Then, search for Birch Trees that are easily found by their white wood color. Gather at least 25 Birch Wood since you’ll need that for the recipe.
Afterward, search for Flint which can be gathered from the floor, boulders, and/or killing Golems. You’ll only need to get 10 Flint for the Fletching Table recipe so it’s not too bad. If you end up with a bunch, you can always put it toward making arrows for the bow.
Now that you have 25 Birch Wood and 10 Flint, you can craft a Fletching Table at the Workbench. As long as you have Flax in your inventory, you can immediately convert it into Flax Fibers at the Fletching Table. It’s a one to one ratio meaning you’ll get 1 Flax Fiber for every 1 Flax used.
What Recipes Are Flax Fibers For?
As teased in the intro of this guide, Flax Fibers are only for the Wolfskin armor set. While the fibers aren’t too difficult to hunt down, you’ll need Wolfskin for this recipe. This can take a few days in Muck because you can’t easily make wolves spawn. They won’t appear until the difficulty rises a little bit with later days.
The entire Wolfskin armor set requires 45 Wolfskin and 45 Flax Fibers to craft. Unlike every other Muck armor, you’ll need to craft it at the Fletching Table instead of an Anvil. The unique set bonus you get for wearing every piece is an extra +50% movement speed. However, it has rather low armor making it not worthwhile for fighting enemies.
The last thing you want is to get caught off-guard by a group of bosses at night or from a totem. So make sure you’re only using it if you plan on moving quickly for finding chests or grinding. For those curious, the armor from wearing the complete set is 19. I wish you could craft this set earlier on since I feel it’d get more use that way.
