What is Exploration?
Exploration is the act of searching the island for items.
By exploring a biome you find items which you can use to eat, trade, sell, and craft into new things.
How Does it Work?
Create a drawing or write a story about your Isomara and companions in one of the island's biomes1. Once your artwork/story is complete and meets the requirements below you can submit it, and when approved you'll receive in-game goodies straight to your inventory!
Include as many Isomara and companions as you want as each one will contribute in the amount of items you will be able to find and bring back. Items and their amounts found during explorations are randomly generated. The generator will pop out what items you find as well as how many of each item. Some items are more commonly found than others. This means you may have to do multiple explorations in one biome to find all the items you want. The full list of items that can be found and their rarities are further below.
What can I do with These Items?
Where can I Explore?
The island of Pelemoku appeared during an event and an Isomara will need the Island Hopper achievement to explore in that biome.
Isomara: [List all Isos and NPCs]
Companions: [List all if any present]
Items and the Biomes they can be Found In:
BeachThe shores along the coast are littered with seashells, the main currency of the Isomara species, along with other useful crafting materials and sometimes washed-up goodies from the ocean. Be wary as sometimes seagulls will be nettled by your presence.
OceanAlthough vast and seemingly desolate the oceans are filled with nutritious creatures and useful materials. It's a good thing Isomara are semi-aquatic creatures and can maneuver within water with relative ease. Careful though, the further out to sea the more dangerous it is.
MountainSome say why bother exploring in such a hazardous and rocky terrain. Well, those who do not know there are valuable goods in those caverns and tunnels. Not many practical goods can be found on and in the mountain, but if you are on the hunt for something pretty or unique, you're in the right biome.
DesertNot all sand and sun as most think. The desert is blooming with unique flora used in medicinal treatments. There are even slight chances to stumble upon a rare oasis with sparkling fresh water, but be sure to bring your own just in case your luck runs sour.
Originating from a small island off the coast this biome is the only one made up of other biomes and slowly encroaches further into the mainland. The sand and vegetation has all taken to an unnatural light teal color hue due to the goo from the native Goom species. The water around the area is poisonous and prolonged exposure could sicken any creature not immune. Gooms call this small island home and work to keep their ecosystem stable. Isomara are unable to live in Goom Infected biomes. Any trespassers will be attacked by Gooms relentlessly.
Isomara may only explore here if they've earned the Ally of Goo achievement or during some events.
Findings of Adept Explorers
Including the items that can be found above, there are some that only Isomara with qualified skills can find and collect. To learn to locate well-hidden foods or catch slippery fish an Isomara is recommended to enroll in one of the many classes. Classes give unique perks and rewards per level which enhance other activities.
These are just some of the items that Isomara enrolled in classes can find during explorations:
