Slime Rancher 2 despite being primarily focused on farming with fantasy elements, also has a quite extensive map with different kinds of terrain, landscape, etc. with its own flora and fauna. The map is free to explore for the players and you will often find yourself engrossed watching the activities going on in the colourful world of Slimes and Plorts. In this Slime Rancher 2 map guide, we will talk about each zone and what they bring with them.
The map, known as Rainbow Islands, is divided into zones and each zone has its own distinct ecosystem in the game. However, to unlock the entire map, players will need to activate all the map data nodes.
The 4 different zones in Slime Rancher 2 map
1. The Conservatory
The Conservatory could be said to be the headquarters and home of the protagonist of Slime Rancher 2, Beatrix LeBleu. It is also the default spawn point of the player in the game and where they undertake most activities such as crafting, storing farm materials, etc. It also houses all the facilities such as the Plort marketplace and the Fabricator. It also has purchasable areas, namely The Archway, The Den, The Gully, and The Tidepools.
2. The Rainbow Fields
The Rainbow Fields is the first and foremost zone a player sets foot in beside the conservatory. It is located right outside The Conservatory and is a sprawling grassland with scores of Slimes, Plorts, and food scattered all over. There are also Slime sculptures and Gordos like the Pink Gordo and the Cotton Gordo. The Rainbow Field has a total of 14 treasure locations.
Slimes and Resources found in The Rainbow Fields
The Rainbow Fields also plays host to a number of natural resources necessary for the farming activities of the player in the game. As for Slimes, there are Pink Slimes, Tabby Slimes, Cotton Slimes, and their respective Plorts which you can gather by feeding them. Besides, at night, there are also the Phosphor Slimes and their Plorts as well. Others include the rare Gold Slime and Lucky Slime and the ever malevolent Tarr Slimes. Food items include Pogofruit, Cuberry for fruits, Carrots for veggies, Chickadoo, Stony Chickadoo, Hen Hen, Roostro, and Stony Hen for meat. Jellystone and Deep Brine are crucial Slime resources as well.
3. Ember Valley
The Ember Valley is the second zone on our list. Distinguished by its golden sunset-like atmosphere and pools of lava here and there, the landscape is somehow dull yet vibrant at the same time. To get to the Ember Valley, you have to feed the Pink Gordo northwest of the Conservatory after which you will find a geyser. If you get on it, the geyser will launch you up and you will find yourself near the portal to the Ember Valley.
Slimes and Resources found in Ember Valley
The Ember Valley is an area characterized by its odd volcanic activities and is home to the Boom Slimes, Radiant Ore, Batty Slime, Rock Slime, and Crystal Slime. It also houses the Batty Gordo, Rock Gordo, Crystal Gordo, and Boom Gordo.
4. Starlight Strand
Probably the most unique and beautiful of the zones, the Starlight Strand is surely a treat to the eyes. To get to the Starlight Strand, all you have to do is feed the Cotton Gordo in the southwest corner of the Rainbow Fields which will reveal the portal to this place. This place also has the most flora and fauna of all the zones and is therefore simply a great place to farm resources in the game.
Slimes and Resources found in Starlight Strand
Slimes include the Phosphor Slime, Rock Slime, Pink Slime, Cotton Slime, Flutter Slime, Ringtail Slime, Hunter Slime, Honey Slime, Angler Slime, Puddle Slime, Gold Slime, Lucky Slime, and the Tarr Slime. Food is equally abundant if not more with several varieties being present. They include Hen Hen, Rocky Hen, Chickadoo, Stony Chickadoo, Roostro, Carrot, Cuberry, Pogofruit, Mint Mango, Moondew Nectar, Pomegranite, Sea Hen, and Sea Chickadoo. Resources include Silky Sand, Deep brine, Wild Honey, Buzz Wax, Radiant Ore, and Strange Diamond.
So this is it for our map guide. The four zones are all unique and beautiful in their own respects with their own flora and fauna present. There is a lot of stuff that could be done with the various materials and thus can be an excellent pastime for all the players.
