A cracked vessel in a surface ruin.

Cracked Vessels are found in most ruins. These containers provide resources when broken using an empty hand or any tool. Malefactors have a 12% chance to drop the whole vessel instead. Some traders sell or buy whole cracked vessels.

The currently defined cracked vessel types contain items classified within their named group:

  • Seed: seeds for planting crops in farming
  • Food: consumable items, specifically grains
  • Forage: resource items used in crafting, for example clay, reeds and sticks
  • Ore: ores or fuel items
  • Tool: tools, weapons or components, as well as a small chance for rusty gears
  • Farming: farming tools and items, as well as a small chance for cabbage seeds
  • Arctic supplies: resource items used in crafting, for example clay, reeds and sticks, as well as poultices, flax fibers, and honeycomb.

Seed Vessels

These vessels will drop only one kind of seed each, with a quantity of 5-7 bags of seeds in total - meaning, they could drop up to 7 pumpkin or onion seeds, but not both at the same time.

Food Vessels

These vessels will drop only one kind of grain each, with a quantity of 8-15 piles of grain in total - meaning, they could drop up to 15 rye or spelt grain piles, but not both at the same time. Additionally, there is a 10% chance for one of the 9 possible resonance archives to drop instead of the grain.

Forage Vessel

These vessels have a varied loot table, with up to 3 (2.5) different items dropping together from one vessel. Some of them have higher chances of dropping then others, however, and each item type has it's own possible quantity. For loose stones and clay the either-or rule applies, meaning only one kind of stone or clay may drop - there will never drop blue clay and fire clay from the same vessel.

Loot Types

Ore Vessel

These vessels will drop up to 2 (1.35) different types of ores or coal. With the way the loot table is set up, some of the ores have several chances to drop, therefore it is possible to either get a bigger amount of one ore, or get a mix of different ores out of one single vessel. For each of the lines, the either-or rule applies again, meaning only one kind of nugget or coal may drop out of the options.

Ore Types

Lignite Coal or Bituminous Coal 100% 2-12

Tool Vessel

These vessels will drop up to 3 (2.2) different kinds and qualities of tools, with tin bronze tools being the highest quality tools possible. Additionally, there's a chance for 1-4 rusty gears to drop as one of the possible results. For lines with multiple different tools, the either-or rule applies, meaning only one of these tools can drop.
