When adventuring around The Constant, players will quickly discover a variety of animal species as well as odd creatures that they can farm including Rabbits, Frogs, Bees and their queen, and of course the adorable and helpful Beefalo.
WHAT IS A BEEFALO?
Upon first glances, Beefalo can look intimidating, especially with how big they are, but let it be known that Beefalo are generally passive mobs unless it is Spring, which we will cover later.
Beefalo come in four different forms, being the Baby Beefalo, Toddler Beefalo, Teen Beefalo, and Adult Beefalo, each having varied stats and dropping a variety of loot, though upon world generation players will only be able to find Adult Beefalo scattered around The Constant.
HOW TO FIND BEEFALO & WHERE BEEFALO LIVE
If players are playing Don’t Starve (DS & RoG) or Don’t Starve Together (DST) with default settings, players will only be able to find Beefalo in the Savanna biome.
Savanna biomes can be identified by their yellow “dead grass” characteristics and the surplus of Grass Tufts, Rabbits Holes, Boulders and Spider Dens.
Players who have their world generation settings changed to “More” or beyond will begin to see Beefalo spawn outside of the Savanna, allowing for Beefalo spawns in virtually all biomes.
While it may be tempting for players to spawn in more Beefalo during world gen, I would discourage it as Beefalo absorb a good amount of server resources a.k.a, be ready for a ton of lag, especially in later seasons or on servers run directly from a laptop or computer.
WHAT ARE A BEEFALO’S STATS?
As mentioned, Beefalo tend to be a passive mob, though when they are attacked by players or other mobs they will become hostile, attacking whoever attacks them and dealing a total of 34 damage per hit.
Beefalo are hardy creatures, having 500 HP in single-player Don’t Starve (DS & RoG) and 1000 HP in Don’t Starve Together (DST), making having some extra friends on the server that much more helpful.
In all versions of the game where Beefalo appear (DS, RoG & DST) Teen, Toddler and Baby Beefalo will all have 300 HP.
WHAT LOOT DOES A BEEFALO DROP? (HOW TO GET BEEFALO WOOL & BEEFALO HORN)
An Adult Beefalo will always drop 4 Meat, 3 Beefalo Wool and will have a 33% chance to drop a Beefalo Horn whenever they are killed.
Adult Beefalo will also periodically drop Manure throughout the day whether the Beefalo are awake or asleep.
Teen Beefalo will always drop 3 Meat and 2 Beefalo Wool whenever they are killed.
Toddler Beefalo will always drop 3 Morsels and 2 Beefalo Wool whenever they are killed.
Baby Beefalo will always drop 3 Morsels and 1 Beefalo Wool whenever they are killed.
WHAT ARE THE BEST USES FOR BEEFALO?
While Beefalo have a vast amount of uses, there are some uses that come in handier than others.
While not absolutely necessary, players are encouraged to station themselves near a herd of Beefalo.
BEEFALO CAN BE USED AS PROTECTION
Beefalo can most notably be used as protection, especially from the increasingly difficult Hound waves that occur beyond day 6.
It is recommended that players lead mobs that have aggro on them towards Beefalo herds, allowing the hostile mob to attack one Beefalo, which causes all the Beefalo in the herd to turn against the mob, dealing 34 damage per hit.
Although it is impossible to control a Beefalo and ensure that the Beefalo attacks specific mobs, it is pretty easy to fight alongside the Beefalo herd as long as players aren’t holding down their attack key while standing too close to said Beefalo.
While players may lose some Beefalo during a battle, this shouldn’t be a big problem as Don’t Starve and Don’t Starve Together have mechanics that cause the Beefalo to mate and inturn breed more baby Beefalo, making them a renewable mob/resource.
Beefalo are notable when killing:
BEEFALO CAN BE USED TO FARM MANURE
Beefalo are one of the best ways to farm Manure as they regularly drop the resource throughout the day.
Manure can be used to build Basic Farms (8 Cut Grass, 4 Manure and 4 Logs) or Improved Farms (10 Cut Grass, 6 Manure and 4 Rocks) in hopes of growing crops for higher tier Crock Pot Recipes.
Even after farms are built, Manure still proves to be extremely helpful as it can be used as a fertilizer for said farms, allowing plants to grow faster, unless it is Winter or said farms are overheating in Summer (can be countered with Ice Flingomatics.)
Manure provides 1 day of growth each time players fertilize a farm, meaning that 4 Manure are needed to make a crop grow on a Basic Farm and 2 Manure are needed to make a crop grow on an Improved Farm.
Note: Farms need to be re-fertilized after 20-30 uses as they become depleted, symbolized by a lighter shade of brown and causing it to be impossible to plant new seeds. Players can rejuvenate that farm for 10 extra uses by using 1 Manure.
Manure can also be used to fertilize resources that have been relocated such as Berry Bushes or Grass Tufts. While I would strongly recommend using Rot instead of Manure to fertilize transplanted resources, simply due to how strong of a fertilizer Manure is, Manure tends to be easier to grab in the early days of survival.
Beefalo Manure farms are extremely notable for Wormwood players who can rely on using Manure to heal them by 2, or Compost Wraps (5 Manure, 2 Rot and 1 Nitre), which heal Wormwood players by 30 Health.
While players can also use Manure to keep their Fire Pits ablaze, I would recommend against it unless you absolutely have to. Manure fuels a campfire by 25% as does Beefalo Wool… which takes me into the next topic…
BEEFALO WOOL KEEP FIRES RUNNING
My favourite resource that Beefalo provide is Beefalo Wool, which can be used as fuel for Campfires, Fire Pits, Endothermic Fire Pits and Endothermic Fires.
Although players can murder Beefalo as a way of collecting Beefalo Wool, players can also humanely shave adult Beefalo by using a Razor (2 Twigs and 2 Flint).
Razors have infinite durability and are most commonly used for shaving Webber and Wilson‘s beards, though when players stand close enough to Beefalo they will be prompted with the option to shave said Beefalo. Players on their computer will have to hold Razors in their hands, though players should be cautious as shaving a Beefalo can often also lead to smacking the Beefalo with a torch, settling the Beefalo on fire and causing the herd to begin attacking the player.
Players must shave Beefalo at night or they will also be at risk of the Beefalo attacking them, though sleeping Beefalo who are in heat do have the chance of waking up and attacking the player.
Each time a Beefalo is sheered, players will receive 3 Beefalo Wool.
Beefalo Wool is most notable as a form of fuel as it provides a 90-seconds of fire in Fire Pits and 45-seconds in Campfires, being equivalent to Manure, Charcoal and Logs.
As sheering Beefalo does not kill the Beefalo, it is considered to be the most ideal way of collecting fuel, though players should note that it will take 3 days before Beefalos regrow their hair.
Sheered Beefalo will appear to be depressed and will mope around until their hair grows back.
Though sheered Beefalo appear to be depressed, they will not act any different than unshaven Beefalo, attacking the player when in heat or upon being attacked.
It should also be noted that a sheered Beefalo will still drop an extra 3 Beefalo Wool once slain, so if you are hurting for some Beefalo Wool, get to smacking!
BEEFALO WOOL CAN HELP KEEP YOU WARM IN WINTER
The Winter days can feel long and dreary, especially if players do not have access to good enough clothing to keep them warm.
Beefalo Wool acts as a basis of a variety of clothing items including:
Winter Hats (4 Beefalo Wool & 4 Silk), providing players with 1.33 Sanity per minute and 120 Insulation.
Beefalo Hats (8 Beefalo Wool & 1 Beefalo Horn), providing players with 20% wetness resistance and 240 Insulation.
Puffy Vests (8 Silk, 2 Beefalo Wool & 1 Winter Koalefant Trunk), providing players with 2 Sanity per minute and 240 Insulation.
It is recommended that players build themselves Beefalo Hats or Puffy Vests to stay warm in Winter as they provide players with the most Insulation, though players may want to pick which one they use based on what resources are accessible to them or what character they are playing.
Players may also want to focus on crafting Puffy Vests so they can wear Football Helmets (1 Pig Skin & 1 Rope) or Thulecite Crowns (4 Thulecite & 4 Nightmare Fuel).
While Puffy Vests are extremely helpful for those who are hoping to use hats as pieces of armour, Beefalo Hats are my more common choice when it comes to staying warm as Beefao Hats will also keep players safe from Beefalo who are in heat.
Beefalo Hats are also much easier to craft as players will only require players to kill a Beefalo instead of having to search for the Winter Koalefant, which can take a few attempts at following Suspicious Dirt Piles (which can also lead to finding the Varg or Ewecus.) Not only that, realistically following Suspicious Dirt Piles in Winter is extremely risky, especially if you do not have the proper Winter gear as it will take you a good chunk of time to trap the Winter Koalefant and take it down.
BEEFALO CAN BE USED FOR TRAVEL
Though I will go more in-depth with how to domesticate Beefalo below, I do have to mention that Beefalo tend to be the best way to get around a Don’t Starve and Don’t Starve Together world, giving players an incredible amount of speed, easily outclassing the use of a Walking Cane.
Beefalo are by far one of the best uses for transporting Suspicious Marbles as otherwise players will become encumbered by the amount of weight caused by the heavy marble.
HOW TO KILL BEEFALO SAFELY
It’s undeniable that Beefalo are a great supply of Meat, especially if you have a good amount of Beefalo in your herd and have no other nearby Meat resources to farm, such as Pigs, Rabbits or Merms. The only issue is, as soon as a player begins attacking one Beefalo they will attract all nearby Beefalo, causing them all to become aggressive.
Players should begin running away from aggressive Beefalo as if they run far enough, the aggressive Beefalo will begin dropping off, losing aggro. The only Beefalo that should continue to hold aggro is the Beefalo the player initially hits.
Upon striking the initial Beefalo again, players may reattract nearby Beefalo, though they can repeat the process of dropping aggro until they have successfully killed the Beefalo they desire.
Note: Beefalo are faster than players, however, Beefalo have an attack rotation that requires them to stand still, allowing for players to kite/run far enough to avoid being hurt.
Beefalo will attack every 4-seconds, allowing players to take a good amount of swings before they are at risk of being attacked. You can watch my kiting pattern above.
If players are in danger of aggressive Beefalo they can put the Beefalo to sleep by using a Sleep Dart (2 Cut Reeds, 1 Stinger, and 1 Jet Feather), freeze it by using an Ice Staff (1 Spear and 1 Blue Gem) or by blowing a Beefalo Horn, as it with calm nearby Beefalo down.
If players want to be extra safe they can lure a Beefalo away from the herd by feeding one a piece of Cut Grass or a Twig, as either will cause the Beefalo to follow the player for a few seconds. Though players can use either a Twig or Cut Grass to lure a single Beefalo away from the herd, it can become quite costly, especially for players who have just spawned into the world.
It should be noted that killing a Beefalo will get you 4 Naughty points and killing a Baby Beefalo will get you 6 Naughty points.
HOW BEEFALO MATE AND PRODUCE BEEFALO BABIES
Beefalo go through various mating seasons throughout the year in all versions of Don’t Starve (DS & RoG) and Don’t Starve Together (DST) which is symbolized by their red buttocks.
Beefalo will stay amongst their herd, shaking their behinds every so often and will instantly aggro any mobs in the nearby area or players who come too close to them.
As mentioned earlier, players can avoid being attacked by mating Beefalo by wearing a Beefalo Hat during any of their mating seasons, though it should be noted that if a player takes off the Beefalo Hat or the Beefalo Hat’s durability drops to 0%, mating Beefalo will then begin attacking the hatless player again.
It should be noted that if players are travelling with Chester, even if they are wearing a Beefalo Hat, the mating Beefalo will aggro Chester and can potentially slay him.
If players do not have access to a Beefalo Hat during mating season or forget that Beefalo are always aggressive during mating season, they can simply run away from the enraged Beefalo as Beefalo will drop aggro faster than they normally do when they are mating.
The Beefalo mating season lasts for a few days and upon completion, a Baby Beefalo will spawn amongst the herd. The only time a Baby Beefalo will not be spawned into a Beefalo herd is when the herd already has a total of 12 Beefalo, though there are hidden mechanics in the game that will try to balance out Beefalo herds in order to help ensure that Beefalo do not become extinct in your map. (For example, a herd of 4 or less Beefalo may merge with other Beefalo, though a larger herd of 12 Beefalo may split, becoming two herds.)
Although all Beefalo remain in the mating phase during Spring when playing Reign of Giants (RoG) or Don’t Starve Together (DST) if Beefalo go into heat during other times of the year, it will be unique to that herd. What do I mean by that? One Beefalo herd can be experiencing a mating season on one side of the Savanna, while other herds are not.
Though herds can be in different phases of mating at the same time, all members of a single herd will either be “in-heat” or “not in heat.”
Beefalo will often spawn 1-3 Baby Beefalo during Spring in RoG and DST as Beefalo will not stop their mating season during Spring upon having a baby, as they would any other time of the year.
Never shave mating Beefalo during Spring without a Beefalo Hat, you’re going to be in for a nasty death.
HOW TO MOVE BEEFALO & BEEFALO HERDS SOMEWHERE ELSE ON THE MAP
If players are stationed by a Savanna that doesn’t seem to have any Beefalo or the Beefalo are too far away from their desired base location, players can blow on a Beefalo Horn to cause 5 nearby Beefalo to follow them for a full-day (or until the Beefalo go to sleep.)
Beefalo can be relocated anywhere on the map, even being able to be taken through Wormholes, though I do warn that Beefalo that are taken out of the Savanna will continue searching for that crispy yellow grass upon being relocated, so you may want to pen them up by using Stone Walls (2 Cut Stone) so they do not run away from you.
It is important to note that Beefalo will stop following players if players stop moving and the herd reaches them. If players are in the wrong spot and want to continue moving the herd, they will have to blow the Beefalo Horn again, being able to use a single Beefalo Horn a maximum of 10 times.
HOW TO RIDE & TAME A BEEFALO
A lesser-known fact about Beefalo is the fact that players are able to domesticate them, allowing them to gain perks based on three types of stats: Domestication, Obedience and Tendency.
As mentioned earlier, Beefalo have a maximum health pool of 500 HP in single-player Don’t Starve (DS & RoG) and a maximum of 1000 HP in Don’t Starve Together (DST).
Although players can feed Beefalo in order to help them regain health after being attacked, it should be noted that Beefalo regain 6.9 Health every 10 seconds when they are left alone, even when undomesticated.
Beefalo also have a hidden Hunger stat which has a maximum of 375 Hunger and shockingly, Beefalo will consume 300 Hunger per day.
In order to begin the domestication of Beefalo, players must feed Beefalo one of the following:
Cut Grass, which restores 1 Health and provides the Beefalo with 4.6875 Hunger
Vegetables, which restores 0.5 Health and provides the Beefalo with 9.375 Hunger
Fruits, which restores 0.5 Health and provides the Beefalo with 9.375 Hunger
Twigs, which restores 0.5 Health and provides the Beefalo with 9.375 Hunger
Players in Don’t Starve Together (DST) will also be able to feed Beefalo:
Cut Reeds, which restores 1 Health and provides the Beefalo with 4.6875 Hunger
Any fruit/veggie based Crock Pot foods, providing 4x the regular Health benefit of the food and default amount of Hunger provided by the food
When a Beefalo has reached 80% Hunger they will let out a fart. Although players have a 20% window to continue feeding their Beefalo, it is highly recommended that players do not continue feeding their Beefalo after it toots to avoid overfeeding.
If players in Don’t Starve Together are looking for some very quick healing on their Beefalo, they can turn to foods like Blue Caps as they will provide the Beefalo with 80 Health instead of 20 Health due to the 4x Health modifier.
If players need a lot of Health returned to their Beefalo quickly, they can think about feeding their Beefalo Surf ‘n’ Turf, Wobster Bisque, Waffles or Wobster Dinner, which are some of the highest yielding Crock Pot recipes in the game. Other options for healing can be found here.
THE DOMESTICATION STAT
The domestication stat refers to how close or far a Beefalo is to gaining or losing domestication.
Upon being fully domesticated a Beefalo’s fur will appear to be more “groomed” or brushed than a standard Beefalo.
If a Beefalo loses 100% of its domestication stat, the Beefalo will return to being a normal, undomesticated Beefalo.
HOW BEEFALO DOMESTICATION IS GAINED
When a Beefalo’s Hunger is above 0 it will gain 0.1% domestication every 10 seconds.
Riding a Beefalo will provide the Beefalo with 0.1% domestication every 10 seconds
Brushing a Beefalo with a Brush (2 Gold, 1 Steel Wool, and 1 Walrus Tusk) will provide the Beefalo with 1.7% domestication, however, can only be done once daily.
(Note: Brushing your Beefalo will also provide players with 1 Beefalo Wool without losing the Beefalo’s hair, thus providing players with around the same amount of Beefalo Wool as they would get when shaving said Beefalo.)
HOW BEEFALO DOMESTICATION IS LOST
Unridden Beefalo will lose 0.52% domestication every 10 seconds unless their Hunger is above 0.
Hungry Beefalo (0 Hunger) will also lose 0.52% domestication every 10 seconds, unless being ridden.
Attacking a Beefalo will reduce the Beefalo’s domestication by 30%.
Overfeeding a Beefalo will cause the Beefalo to lose 1% domestication.
FASTEST WAY TO GET BEEFALO DOMESTICATION
If players want to maximize their efforts of domesticating their Beefalo they should brush the Beefalo daily for 15 days while making sure that the Beefalo is always fed.
Since Beefalo lose 300 Hunger daily, players will want to feed a Beefalo regularly until it farts, as 300 Hunger is 80% of a Beefalo’s maximum Hunger.
Depending on what version of Don’t Starve players are on, players may be in for a very expensive domestication process, as Beefalo will need 64 Cut Reeds/Cut Grass or 32 Twigs daily. Alternatively, players can feed 300 Hunger worth of Fruits or Veggies per day.
Feeding a Beefalo 4 Dragonpies, 8 Butterfly Muffins or 12 Ratatouille is probably the best and easiest choice, especially for players who have plenty of farms and don’t want to spend all of their Cut Grass, Cut Reeds and Twigs.
MY BEEFALO KEEPS BECOMING UNDOMESTICATED, WHAT DO I DO?
It can be a struggle to keep your Beefalo’s domestication stat up, making routines exceptional.
One of the easiest routines is to feed your Beefalo 2 Dragonpies and one brushing a day, though I personally find this routine extremely easy as I’m currently a Wurt main, players may find alternative routines especially if they are using their domestic Beefalo as a main source of transportation.
Players can also use a Salt Lick to avoid losing domestication stats as Beefalo will take up to 8 licks of it a day, which may seem like a lot, but a Salt Lick has 120 uses.
A Salt Lick requires an Alchemy Engine to prototype and needs 4 Nitre and 2 Boards in order to craft.
Note: Salt Licks will often keep a Beefalo in that area, though it will also attract other Beefalo, Koalefants (which take 16 daily licks), Volt Goats (which take 6 daily licks) and No-Eyed Deer (which take 6 daily licks).
It should also be noted that Salt Licks cannot provide points towards domestication as they only prevent the loss of domestication.
THE OBEDIENCE STAT
The Obedience stat refers to whether or not a player is able to saddle onto a Beefalo to ride said Beefalo.
Beefalo can only be saddled when their obedience is above 10%, though Beefalo tend to shake off their saddles when their obedience drops below 40%.
If players hope to ride a Beefalo, they will have to ensure that the Beefalo’s obedience is above 50%.
Obedience stats decay by 50% per day, however, can be easily increased by feeding or brushing your Beefalo.
HOW OBEDIENCE IS GAINED
Brushing a Beefalo will increase its obedience by 40%.
Feeding a Beefalo will increase its obedience by 10%.
Overfeeding a Beefalo will decrease its obedience by 30%.
HOW OBEDIENCE IS LOST
A starving Beefalo will lose 100% of its obedience within a day.
Shaving or attacking a Beefalo will decrease its obedience by 100%.
Note: A fully domesticated Beefalo will never drop below its minimum obedience value, which is based on the Beefalo’s tendency stat.
THE TENDENCY STAT
The tendency stat refers to the different perks a domesticated Beefalo can provide players.
There are four tendencies that Beefalo can obtain including Default, Ornery, Rider and Pudgy.
It should be noted that a Beefalo cannot reap the benefits of their tendency unless they are fully domesticated.
Default Beefalo appear with wide white eyes and with their chin fur pointing towards the right.
Default Beefalo take on this attribute if players manage to balance out all of their tendency stats.
Default Beefalo deal 34 Damage and have run speed of 7.
Default Beefalo also have minimum obedience of 80%.
Default Beefalos is one of the easiest tendencies to keep as it doesn’t take much effort for players to keep. Not only is the Default the easiest, but it is also the attribute partially-domesticated Beefalo take on.
Ornery Beefalo appear with angry eyes (lines above the eyes), a big frown and with their chin fur pointing towards the left.
Ornery Beefalo take on this attribute if the Beefalo takes or deals damage regularly.
Ornery Beefalo deal 50 Damage and have run speed of 7.
Ornery Beefalo also have minimum obedience of 45%.
Due to an Ornery Beefalo’s minimum obedience being only 45%, players will have to regularly maintain the Beefalo’s obedience if they hope to ride the Beefalo for extended periods of time, without being bucked off.
A perk of the Ornery Beefalo is the fact that it does not lose obedience when it takes damage.
Rider Beefalo appear with wide “worried” eyes (with a line under them) and with their chin fur pointing towards the right. Rider Beefalo strongly resemble Default Beefalo, though their mouths appear “cuter” and more groomed.
Rider Beefalo take on this attribute if players ride the Beefalo regularly.
Rider Beefalo deal 25 Damage and have run speed of 8.
Rider Beefalo also have minimum obedience of 95%.
Rider Beefalo are by far the easiest Beefalo to keep obedience as if players ride them regularly all they will have to do is feed the Beefalo a few Twigs a day.
Rider Beefalo are usually considered the most useful forms of Beefalo as they provide players with the most speed and most players will avoid damaging mobs with a Beefalo anyways.
Pudgy Beefalo appear with wide white eyes and with their chin fur pointing towards the right.
Pudgy Beefalo take on this attribute if players consistently keep a Beefalo’s hunger above 50% or continuously overfeed their Beefalo.
Pudgy Beefalo deal 20 Damage and have run speed of 6.5.
Pudgy Beefalo also have minimum obedience of 60%.
The main reason players would want to domesticate a Pudgy Beefalo is to gain a sexy 6.25 Sanity per minute.
TIPS FOR RIDING & TAMING A BEEFALO
Players can ride Beefalo for short periods of time before they are bucked off. Ride lengths will depend on the domestication levels.
Beefalo have a base ride length of 50 seconds when at 0% domestication, however, when players reach 100% domestication they will be able to ride the Beefalo for 800 seconds which equals to around 1.67 in-game days.
Ride lengths can be reset every time the player unmounts and remounts the Beefalo or when the player causes the Beefalo to gain obedience.
It is important to note that there are some underlying modifiers that will cause the player to be unable to ride a Beefalo for the full length intended. These modifiers include:
If a Beefalo is not fully tamed, players will only be able to ride the Beefalo for 30% the length of time.
If a Beefalo is shaved, players will only be able to ride the Beefalo for 20% the length of time.
If a Beefalo is in heat, players will only be able to ride the Beefalo for 20% the length of time.
Players will be able to attack mobs while riding a Beefalo, dealing a minimum of 34 Damage, though players can increase the damage they output with particular saddles or as mentioned when they have particular tendencies.
In general, while riding a Beefalo the player remains safe as the Beefalo absorbs the brunt of the damage, though ranged enemies such as Clockworks will still be able to target players.
TYPES OF BEEFALO SADDLES
It’s important to note that there are a variety of Saddles players can craft in order to mount their Beefalo.
All Saddles will lose a point of durability if they are tossed off by a Beefalo, though players can simply use a Saddlehorn which requires an Alchemy Engine to prototype and 2 Twigs, 2 Bone Shards and 1 Jet Feather to craft.
I would strongly recommend using a Saddlehorn every time you unmount a Beefalo if you’re not hoping to keep the Beefalo’s stats up as Saddles are far more expensive to craft than Saddlehorns and Saddlehorns come with 10 uses.
It’s important to remind players that they will not be able to place a Saddle on a Beefalo who’s obedience is below 10% and instead the player will be attacked by the Beefalo.
A Saddle must be prototyped using an Alchemy Engine and is crafted using 4 Pig Skin, 4 Gold Nuggets and 4 Beefalo Wool.
Saddles provide Beefalo with 40% extra moment speed and have 5 uses.
A War Saddle must be prototyped using an Alchemy Engine and is crafted using 10 Logs, 4 Steel Wool and 4 Rabbits.
Note: As War Saddles need live Rabbits, players should make sure they have enough inventory space before crafting this bad boy, as it can be frustrating if you don’t have 4 slots available (total of 6 slots needed).
War Saddles provide Beefalo with 25% extra movement speed, 16 bonus damage and have 8 uses.
War Saddles are most useful for Ornery Beefalo, as it will bring the Ornery Beefalo’s damage up to 66.
A Glossamer Saddle must be prototyped using an Alchemy Engine and is crafted using 68 Butterfly Wings, 4 Silk and 2 Living Logs.
Glossamer Saddles provide Beefalo with 55% extra movement speed and have 8 uses.
Glossamer Saddles are best for Rider Beefalo, though players may also want a Glossamer Saddle for Ornery Beefalo to improve their ability to kite mobs.
Gossamer Saddles are extremely difficult to craft due to the fact that they require 68 Butterfly Wings, which have a 6-day spoilage rate. To avoid spoilage, players can collect Butterflies using a Bug Net and feed them regularly using Berries.
Players can also use Bundling Wrap or Gift Wrap to keep their Butterfly Wings fresh if they do not wish to use Construction Amulets.
Finally, players can also camp out next to an Evil Flower as they provide players with more Butterflies during the daytime.
Remember when I said it’s a good idea to have a Saddlehorn? Well, Glossamer Saddles are the reason why.
