The Flame Altar marks the spot for a base. Changes to the world within the boundaries of the Flame Altar are permanent (unless the Altar is extinguished), while any change outside the boundaries of the Flame Altar will reset after 30 minutes or game restart.

Currently, only 8 Flame Altars can be placed simultaneously in the world.


Flame Altars are created through manual crafting.


  • Allows permanent building of a base and reshaping of terrain, including Base Area upgrades.
  • Allows players to increase their "Strengthen The Flame" upgrades.
  • Allows players to reset their skill tree at a cost of 10 Runes Runes which does not increase with successive reallocations.
  • Acts as a Fast Travel point.
  • Acts as a heat source for resting buffs.

To remove the Flame Altar, interact with the Flame Altar, select the "Extinguish Flame" option, and then confirm. The Flame Altar starts a 30 second timer (during which the removal can be cancelled) and then disappears. Built structures, placed items, terrain changes, and so on will remain in place until the area resets normally - i.e. 30 minutes or server restart. Placing a new altar before the reset will protect the area again, but the new altar will not inherit any size upgrades applied to its predecessor. The Flame Level remains a global constant even if all Flame Altars are extinguished - it will not "go down" in level.
