At the time of writing there are over 20 resources in Loop Hero. We’ve cut the list down by only including the Stable/Preserved versions of certain types. These are earned by collecting base resources, a certain number of which will convert into the Stable version. We’ve listed them all in alphabetical order below, so scroll down to the item you’re looking for. It’s worth noting that there are some spoilery details regarding bosses included in descriptions, so be careful not to read things you don’t understand if you care about those secrets!

How to get Astral Orbs

Astral Orbs are dropped by enemies of the Cosmic and Mage types (along with bosses). You can check the type of an enemy mid-battle by moving the cursor over them. Dark Slimes are a great choice for this, and can be summoned by destroying a Goblin Camp with an Oblivion card while a goblin is still sat on the camp. Pause right as the monsters spawn at daybreak to achieve this.

How to get Book of Memories (Memory Fragments)

Collecting 10 Memory Fragments will automatically convert them into a Book of Memories. Memory Fragments are gained by placing Cemeteries or by overflowing your hand. That means holding a full hand, forcing you to discard the oldest when you draw a new one. You can also get Memory Fragments by walking through Cemetaries after building one in your camp.

How to get Food Supplies (Rations)

Collecting 12 Rations will automatically convert them into a Food Supply. Rations can be farmed by placing Meadows (Blooming Meadows generate Rations plus Noticeable Change), from killing monsters and from the Farm’s surrounding tiles in your camp.

How to get Metamorphosis (Noticeable Changes)

Collecting 20 Noticeable Changes will automatically convert them into a Metamorphosis. Noticeable Changes are created any time a tile is transformed into another time. For example, converting a Meadow to a Blooming Meadow or creating a Mountain Peak will generate a Noticeable Change towards to put towards a Metamorphosis.

How to get the Orb of Afterlife (Pitiful Remains) 

Collecting 10 Pitiful Remains will automatically convert them into an Orb of Afterlife. Pitiful Remains are dropped by Vampire and Undead enemies once you’ve beaten the Chapter One boss, the Lich.

How to get the Orb of Crafts

You can get the Orb of Crafts by defeating Artificial and Object enemies. That includes the basic chests spawned by Battle Fields, so be sure to place plenty of them.

How to get the Orb of Evolution

Kill Living or Plant type enemies for a chance to get an Orb of Evolution. The earliest of these you’ll likely encounter will be Bandits and Goblins, spawned through multiple Villages and placing Rocks/Mountains, respectively.

How to get the Orb of Expansion

You can get the Orb of Expansion by battling five or more enemies on a single space. You’ll need to set this up carefully using spaces such as Spider Cocoons, Vampire Mansions, and Goblin Camps. The more enemies you face, the higher the chances of getting the Orb of Expansion.

How to get the Orb of Immortality

The Orb of Immortality is gained by killing the Chapter end bosses such as the Lich. To farm this one you’ll need to create efficient paths to kill bosses using tools like the Maze of Memories.

How to get the Orb of Unity

You can get the Orb of Unity by killing Liquid and Swarm type enemies. Slimes are a very common Liquid type you’ll be killing from the start of the game.

How to get Preserved Rock (Preserved Pebbles)

Collecting 10 Preserved Pebbles will automatically convert them into a Preserved Rock.

Using Oblivion tiles on a Mountain Peak will allow you to place another Mountain or Rock in the opened space for a second dose of resources.

Collecting 13 Scrap Metal will automatically convert them into Stable Metal. You can get Scrap Metal by overfilling your inventory such that items are discarded due to a lack of space.
