Dauntless crafting guide - how to craft grenades, potions, and pylons

Hey, uhh... Got any Stamina Tonics? Asking for a friend...

Featured post

Dauntless really wants you to be prepared for the upcoming hunts. Not only have they supplied you with a wide variety of different weapons, armour, perks, and lanterns with which to create your builds, but you’re also able to use the gatherables you find on each island to craft grenades, potions, and pylons aplenty. Our Dauntless crafting and supplies guide will walk you through the recipes for each different craftable in the game, along with a full list of all crafting reagents and how you can easily gather them in large quantities.

This grenade- and potion-crafting guide is just one part of our larger guides series on Dauntless, all of which you can peruse from our central Dauntless guide & tips hub. There you’ll find in-depth beginner’s explanations and useful tips, as well as links to every other part of our series, from the best Dauntless weapons and Dauntless cells/perks to strategies on defeating each of the Dauntless Behemoths, and much more.

Dauntless crafting guide – grenades, potions, reagents

This is a guide filled with tables. We’ve got one for all the grenades, one for all the potions, one for all the pylons, and one for all the crafting reagents you need to craft everything else. To skip ahead to a particular table, simply click any of the links below.

Dauntless grenades & explodables list

Grenades are the fun, visceral part of crafting in Dauntless. Each of the following grenades can be crafted by talking to Janek Zai (he of Repeater crafting fame) in Ramsgate, and can be equipped onto your hotbar like any other supplies from your Loadout screen. To use one, all you need to do is hold down the corresponding button for that hotbar slot, which will bring up a targeting overlay so you can aim your throw; and then release the button to let the grenade fly.

Dauntless potions list

Potions are for sure the most important supplies you can craft in Dauntless. While your Healing Flasks auto-refill at the start of every hunt, if you want to benefit from the effects of any of the other brews listed below, you’ll need to craft’em in Ramsgate by speaking to Markus Boehr (he of the excellent facial hair). He’s easy to spot, being right in front of you when you spawn into Ramsgate.

Dauntless pylons list

Pylons, depending on your experience with Dauntless, are a branch of crafting supplies you may not yet have heard about. That’s because you’ll need to get through a number of the aforementioned Markus Boehr’s personal quests before you will be able to craft them. Once placed on the ground during a hunt, each one will provide a different manner of buff to those within its area of effect. They’re honestly a little underpowered in my opinion at this time, but if you’re interested in trying them out, then take a look below.

Dauntless reagents list (crafting materials)

And finally, the reagents. The crafting materials you must gather in order to craft any of the items listed above. It’s very easy to obtain pretty much all of the below resources just by exploring each island a little. Most islands I’ve found to hold at least 5-6 different types of plants and ores for your use – but if you really want to gather a particular reagent as quickly as possible, your best bet is to complete the relevant Patrol mission a bunch of times, because aside from anything you collect during the hunt, you’re guaranteed a couple of the below items as a reward for completing the mission.

Image Name Description Patrols
Dashleaf An ingredient in potions that enhance a Slayer's speed Neutral,
Terra
Heart Lily An ingredient common in potions that restore a Slayer's health Frost
Ironthistle An ingredient in potions that enhance a Slayer's protection from harm Blaze
Omnistone A key component in aetheric pylon construction None
Phoenix Opal An ingredient in many potions and aetheric devices None
Skybloom An ingredient in many alchemical potions Blaze,
Shock
Slayer's Boon An ingredient in potions that improve a Slayer's weapon attacks Frost,
Shock
Warthwort An ingredient in potions that increase a Slayer's power to inflict damage Neutral,
Terra

And that’s all the info we have for the time being on crafting supplies in Dauntless. Hopefully now you know how to sort your Blitz Tonics from your Bulwark Tonics, your Pylons from your Phoenix Opals, your Inferno Grenades from your Airstrikes. Happy hunting!
