Raw resources are those resources that are available naturally in the world. Some of these resources are seasonal, regenerating and depleting as the season changes. Others need to be replenished every now and then.

Here’s a quick highlight of all the raw resources that you can get in Manor Lords:

  • Wild Animals: Wild Animals in Manor Lords usually spawn in the woods. To hunt them, you need to build a Hunting Camp near the area. Once built, hunters will obtain Meat and Hide by hunting nearby Wild Animals.
  • Stone Deposits: Stone deposits require a Stonecutter Camp near the resource to extract. Stones are used to make buildings as you progress further into the game. After collecting all the Stones, the deposit will disappear.
  • Clay Deposits: Clay deposits are another finite resource that disappears once you extract all of it. It’s important to build industrial buildings later on.
  • Iron Deposits: Typically the last resource on the map, Iron Deposits also spawn naturally on the map. If you have the Bloomery and smithy in your city, you can use Iron to build weapons and armor.
  • Berry Deposits: To harvest berry deposits, you need to build a Forager Hut nearby. As you collect Berries, the amount left in the deposit will start to deplete. Don’t worry; they grow back each Spring.
  • Trees: Trees are probably the most readily available Raw resource on the map. However, you can always run out of them if you cut down too many of them. Thankfully, building a Forester Hut will replenish Trees after a while.
