Water is a resource that requires a container that can hold liquid and is used for many forms of crafting. Most water is quality 10. Occasionally parts of the map will have higher quality Water nodes. Because if this, high quality water is fairly valued and may be traded as commodity. Water is one factor in obtaining high quality trees. For more information on finding high quality water, see Finding high quality water, clay, and soil.

Water can also be used to regain stamina much like Tea, except it will drain energy at the same time.

Drinking Quality

Quality 10 water recovers 10% stamina and drains 20% energy per 0.5L sip. Higher quality water will decrease the energy drain but stamina recovery remains the same at all qualities. This makes high quality water useful for performing stamina draining tasks without having to eat as much to recover, thus preserving your hunger bonus. Though energy is always shown as a whole number, it is not simply rounded up or down. For example, Q11 water will alternate between draining 20% and 19% energy at regular intervals. Other drinkable liquids such as milk seem to follow the same rules and formula, making them decent substitutes for water if you have a surplus since it is much easier to increase their quality (this requires further testing).

Quality Energy Drain
10 -20%
40 -15%
90 -10%

How to Acquire

Water can be acquired from a Well or from any Water tile (left click on container and then right click on water).

How to Use

All containers can be used to collect, move, drink, and store water.

Generally, a Kuksa, Waterskin, or Waterflask is used to carry water on your character to regain stamina while travelling.
If large quantities of water are needed, carrying a Bucket to drink from is also an option.
