How to Get Flint in Roots of Pacha

Getting this new material is an important step in your progression. Fortunately, it's not too hard to do it, and you can get Flint on Day 4. Here's how to get Flint in Roots of Pacha.

First, head into the Forest. You're going to need 1 Pinecone or 1 Pomegranate which you can get by shaking either of the trees shown in the above image. Once you have this item, continue heading up until you get to the Cave. (Don't forget to check for any respawned Seeds along the way!)

If you've never been in the Cave, you'll meet an adorable glowing armadillo who tells you to smash Rocks so you can open up the next area. Start busting Rocks with your Handaxe until the next area opens. Then, repeat the process until you find a gigantic armadillo statue.

This statue is your first Totem. Select the Pinecone or Pomegranate on your hotbar and give it to the statue. This will start a challenge. The challenge is to count how many unique glowing armadillos you saw. The answer is 5.

Once you've completed the challenge, the next section of the Cave will open, giving you access to new Rocks that have Flint in them. Break these Rocks and you'll get the Flint you need to upgrade your Tools. You can continue moving deeper into the cave by breaking Rocks to open up new paths if you'd like to, but you'll have to complete yet another challenge to progress further.
