The Wandering Village: Where to Find Knowledge

Shrine Scavenge Wandering Village

Knowledge is a critical resource in progressing through The Wandering Village’s technology tree to unlock tools to help you and Onbu survive the toxic atmosphere and limited resources.

There are a couple of ways to find knowledge. The first and most stable way is to send scavenging parties to shrines, a location on the strategic map that can grant you bonus resources that you may not find on the Onbu. These will always grant you one point of knowledge.

Knowledge will be needed to unlock technologies related to advanced resources, as well as special buildings relating to the Onbu. For example, the Windmill makes flour and then the Bakery to make bread all costs knowledge to research, as bread has an advanced chain of processing.

The second but less reliable method is to hope for an event in forests, settlements, ruined settlements, or mines that may yield knowledge as a reward in one of the dilemma choices. Unfortunately, you won’t know what reward you get for each event until you’ve played through the game several times, so luck reigns supreme here.

Knowledge looks like a gear symbol and you can check the knowledge cost of a particular technology in the research menu.

The Wandering Village is available on PC.
