Enshrouded is finally live for early access, and players around the world are diving into this new survival experience trying to figure out how tons of different game mechanics will work. You'll have several early tasks as you learn how to use various tools and gather resources, but the Flame Altar is one of the biggest moves you'll make early on. If you're worried that you chose the wrong place for your Flame Altar in Enshrouded, we've got the answer on whether it can then be removed.

One of the most important things to do early on in Enshrouded is place a Flame Altar. You'll have to gather Stone to make one, which can be done by picking up stones around the area you explore after passing through the first cave.

Once you've gotten it placed, you may realize you'd rather have your Flame Altar in a different location. There's both good and bad news when it comes to relocation. The good news is that you can remove a Flame Altar, but the bad news is it will be destroyed in the process.

You also need to be very careful about deciding to remove a Flame Altar, as the area around it will reset if you leave and re-enter that area causing it to reload or reload the game itself. If you're sure you need a new location, commune with the altar and Extinguish the Flame. Wait a few minutes, or leave to go to another area, and the Flame Altar will automatically despawn.

Once it's gone, you will not be able to pick up and place that same Flame Altar again. You'll instead have to gather additional materials and craft a new one. If you're unsure where to put one, we suggest using the map to find Longkeep (just north of your starting location) and getting it near that camp area.

It's a great starting location and you can continue to expand with additional Flame Altars in new areas later. If you're struggling with early materials, your inventory will carry over into new worlds. You can always just make a new world with the stuff you wanna keep in your character's current inventory and start fresh.
