Sawdust is one of the many valuable resources in V Rising, essential for making Paper at the Paper Press. However, acquiring Sawdust can be challenging, as the game does not exactly tell you how you can go about doing it. Hence, it’s not surprising that many in the community are quite confused as to how they can obtain it.

Therefore, today’s V Rising guide will go over how you can get and use Sawdust in V Rising.

To obtain Sawdust in V Rising, you will need to craft it from the Sawmill. To make the Sawmill you will be required to:

  • Head to the Build Menu, then go to Production
  • Here under the Refinement Tab, you will be able to look for the Sawmill.
  • You will need 400x Lumber and 80x Stone to make it.

Once you have the structure, you will need some Lumber to make Sawdust. So go out and cut some more trees to get the resource.

Now come back to the mill and place 20x Wood in the “Input” slot. You will get 1x Plank and 1x Sawdust as a result of the “Output” section.

Once you have a good lumbering system going, you will get to have an infinite amount of Sawdust.
