This is a work in progress. Trion Worlds is adding new biomes every few months (and redesigning existing ones when needed), so I will edit this post whenever needed.
Sometimes, I want to farm some specific items and I know I can find them in certain biomes the easiest, but I have a hard time remembering which colour is for which biome, so I decided to make a list with screenshots. Having a blog, of course, I will not keep that list only for myself but share it with you here instead. :)
Each biome has a few maps with different names which I’m calling sub-zones. But the colours on the map are still the same for each sub-zone that belongs to the same biome. The mobs found in each zone may differ slightly, though. For example, you can find fae in one of the Permafrost sub-zones as well as in one the Fae Wilds biome.
I tried to find the names for each sub-zone on the TroveWiki, but as the game is still in beta, some information is outdated and may be wrong/is wrong. The screenshots below were taken within the last couple of days, though. Those are up-to-date! ;)
Medieval Highlands: consists of the sub-zones Deep Forest, Firefly Party, Frigga’s Fjord & Highlands Plains.
This biome is represented by a light green… pretty easy. It’s the same green you can see on the rest of the screenshot. ;)
Permafrost: consists of the sub-zone Dead of Winter and… probably some other one? This one got redesigned in closed beta and no longer hosts any robots.
The frost one is the easiest to spot. Much easier than all the greens, at least. As one would assume, “permafrost” is represented by a white-greyish colour on the map.
Desert Frontier: consists of the sub-zones Abandoned Boneyard & Desert of Secrets.
I would call this a dark-salmon colour if I had to find a name for it. It’s kind of orange, but a bit too pale for it. Additionally, the map sometimes seems to fade in places which makes this colour even more difficult to define.
Cursed Vale: consists of the sub-zones Viking Burial Ground & …Cursed Vale. Not sure if that is correct or if they just ran out of ideas for names of sub-zones here. As far as I know, Cursed Vale is due for a redesign in the future.
The Cursed Vale is represented by purple. I love going there to do my daily for the cubits. It’s relatively fast, mostly because I find the dungeons very easy on this biome. I usually don’t need to spend several minutes trying to find the entrance or jumping my way up into a dungeon.
Fae Wilds: consists of the sub-zones Bewitching Wood, Uncanny Valley & Spellbound Thicket.
Fae Wilds have a dark green on the map. This is one that I always forget and when I desperately needed some faerie dust, it took me ages to get it, because I probably always ran past the Fae Wilds not knowing they are right next to me. ;)
Dragonfire Peaks: according to the wiki, it has no sub-zones, but I believe Dragon’s Teeth and Blazing Emberlands are two sub-zones that belong to Dragonfire Peaks. At least, both of them feature dragons and lava.
Dragonfire Peaks are represented by dark red. Almost brown, probably. I love this biome whenever I want to go mine for ore. Just drop down into one of the caves (usually found by jumping down into holes next to lava). The caves in this biome are huge!
Neon City: consists of the sub-zone Data Spires. Robots! This biome always reminds me of Futurama.
Dark grey… I always confuse those with the dark purple colours of the Cursed Vale. But here you go. If you need Robotic Salvage – and you probably will need those! – then this is the place to go.
Peaceful Hills: consists of Peacefull Hills and Outpost of Light. I am actually not sure whether the biome is called “Peaceful Hills” or not. I just find that name fitting. This biome hosts sunflowers where you can get the bulbs needed for gardening. Other than the shadow invaders, no hostile mobs can be found here.
Candoria: the newest biome. Quite obviously focusing on sugary goodness. So far, I have seen the sub-zones “Cupcake Canyon” and “Sugar Steppes”.
Let’s be honest here: This biome is not hard to miss at all. It’s light pink. When you’re in it, too pink if you ask me. What I loved was the melted chocolate. When it comes to liquids, we have lava, water and plasma (in Neon City, drains energy) and now we’ve also got liquid chocolate! My character immediately went to take a chocolate bath. Also, movement is slowed in there. I wonder why… ;)
Sea of Tranquility (no sub-zones). Nothing is really happening down here.
But it’s important to note that you can cross it! Just ride through it to get to the next biome you want to head to. There are no mobs, but in order to get back up into a biome, you will need to use some of your cubes. Just point the camera below your character and hit the button assigned to whatever cubes you want to use to get up fast. Then click and jump, click and jump, click and jump until you’re at the desired height.
