Items are what a player will spend the vast majority of their time using, crafting, finding, and manipulating in Wayward. Most of the exploration-based elements in the game are derived from collecting various items and combining them using practical and quasi-realistic recipes. For example, a branch can be cut into smaller twigs or stripped of its bark by using a sharp object to do so. Even at these early stages of development, there are over 200 items, each with their own unique uses. Learning how to produce maximum efficacy from these objects is essential if you want to survive through the first night.
Many items in Wayward have multiple uses, so it is difficult to properly organize them. There are some, however, that can be specifically categorized, and so multiple tables will be used for easy reference, with the unsorted items at the bottom.
