Shroud Cores will drop after defeating Shroud monster bosses. I found my first Shroud Core in Enshrouded after defeating the Thunderbrute boss guarding the source of the Shroud at the very bottom of the Shroud Well near the starting point of the game.

When facing off with these bosses, make sure to have plenty of time left to be in the Shroud or have a Shroud Survival Flask to extend the resistance time. Be sure to equip good armor before hunting Shroud Cores, and know that the bosses will require combat finesse including quick dodging and striking. Blocking will not prevent damage being dealt. The bonus of this fight is the giant weapon players will be able to snatch once the boss is down.

Creating Shroud Cores With Alchemy in Enshrouded

There is an easier way to collect Shroud Cores if grinding boss fights is taking too long. Players will need to locate and bring back the Alchemist Balthazar, who is hidden in an ancient vault. Once players can craft with his help, they will be able to make Shroud Cores with 10x Shroud Spores and 10x Shroud Liquid which can be collected by either killing Shroud monsters or cutting down Shroud plants within the bigger Shroud area in the gorge under the bridge.

Shroud Cores are used for updating the base using the Flame Alter in Enshrouded. Players must bring one Shroud Core to make that first upgrade. This will allow players to build on a wider area and expand their bases. The number of Shroud Cores needs to increase the base size will grow along with the base level. Thanks to the ability to make Shroud Cores with the Alchemist, players will be able to quickly upgrade their bases to form majestic strongholds.
