Flotsam is found in the Ocean, and consists of floating debris from a shipwreck. Flotsam can be snagged using a Fishing Rod, and will yield Boards, Logs, Cut Grass, Rope, Twigs, and various new Trinkets such as: a Soaked Candle, an Old Boot, a Sextant, a Toy Boat or a Sea Worther. These trinkets can be given to the Pig King in exchange for Gold Nuggets, or traded with Wolly.
Chances for obtaining each of the possible loots is as follows:
- In the Reign of Giants DLC, flotsam will only spawn next to the Sunken Boat once upon world generation, and will never spawn anywhere again.
- Flotsam was added to the game in the July 30, 2015 update, and accompanied Klei's official announcement of the Shipwrecked DLC.
- New Files in DS from Klei forums. Posted on July 30, 2015.
