Cavecrawler Wood, also known as Blue Wood, is a wood type that grows exclusively in the Cavecrawler Cavern, within The Maze. It was added during the January Mega Update, along with the other features added in the update.
It is mostly used for filling blueprints or selling and trading with other players due to its difficulty to obtain.
Cavecrawler Wood grows and extends larger than most of the other wood in the game, and occasionally grows outside the cavern walls, revealing branches next to the Maze Ledge.
Unlike other wood types, the wood has no wood grain, due to it having the Neon material; its glow effect hides the joints and edges of the wood when on high graphics settings, making it difficult to estimate where you are cutting.
Many fully developed Cavecrawler logs cannot fit in any sawmills that are smaller than the Sawmax 02 due to its thickness.
This tree has the longest growth time in the game, of over 10 hours. Because of this, witnessing one die without player interference is very rare.
The wood is moderately difficult to chop, so it is recommended to use a Bird Axe if obtained, as it does the most damage on this wood. If not obtained, it is recommended to use a Rukiryaxe or The Many Axe instead to chop it. A Sawmax 01 's input hole usually satisfies most of the wood's branches, however, a Sawmax 02 is recommended for milling its base.
Harvesting the wood is quite costly and time-consuming, as sailing across the Ocean costs $400 a trip and finding the right route to the cavern, which change every four days (it is recommended to read the Cavecrawler Cavern page for more information). As the wood is considered heavy, larger logs can disable a truck from going up steep inclines.
