Lava Dust can be found in the second location of Ember Valley. To get to this Island, players must take a teleporter found at the end of the starting Island. Once here, they can travel to the lava-ridden areas deeper on the landmass to find flowing spouts of Lava Dust. Players need to use the Resource Harvester, an upgrade unlocked at the Fabricator, to excavate the resource from the ground. Lava Dust can be pretty common in the lava-filled areas of Ember Valley, but the terrain and slimes pose a serious danger to the player, which is something to keep in mind.
