Medieval Dynasty Winter 4 Tips to Successfully Survive

Last updated on March 1st, 2023 at 12:50 pm

Medieval Dynasty is a village-building adventure. You are welcomed into the valley by your late uncle’s friend. He gives you permission to construct your own village using the resources that you can find throughout the land. Three out of four seasons do not pose much of a challenge. But in a Medieval Dynasty winter, you can die from freezing. So here’s a guide on how to survive.

The best way to survive is to make sure you have a workshop. Once you’ve constructed one, you can construct torches that will enable you to stay mobile and warm during the winter. The threat you’ll face after that is starvation. There are fewer wild animals outside. Making tools and selling them to neighborhood vendors is therefore your best option. Then purchase your food from the vendors. Since cabbages have the most food points, I would suggest them.

Get Some Heat into Your Soul

The freezing temperatures are the most dangerous threat to your survival. Being close to a heat source can help to combat this. For example, a campfire. However, this will limit your exploration.

The next option you have is to craft simple torches. They can be held in your right hand. These serve as a portable heat source. However, they only live for a short time. So be sure to first gather up plenty of sticks and straw. Make as many as you possibly can. As a result, scavenging will take less time.

Warmer clothing is the best option. You may not have access to a sewing station at this time.There is an early quest that results in warmer clothing. However, if you haven’t finished it yet, your only option is to buy some. Visit Branica. The hamlet’s sole vendor will charge you a high price for clothing. However, once you have them, you will never need to make another torch.

Buy Food to Keep you Fed During a Medieval Dynasty Winter

With the temperature under control, you will require food. According to my observations, there are fewer wild animals around, and you are unlikely to have any crops to fall back on. Fortunately, Gostovia, a nearby village, has plenty of food to buy, but you’ll be short on coins.

You should have plenty of furs if you hunted during the previous seasons. These can be sold at a profit. This should enable you to stock up on food. If you haven’t already, I recommend crafting tools and reselling them to vendors. The following is a table of what you can expect from selling to vendors:

ItemHow to ExtractSelling Price
SticksGround, plants and Trees1g
Stone Hoe (Most profitable Tool)1 Log, 4 Stones22.5g
LogsCutting down Trees1g
FeathersCutting down Trees1.5g
Easy to source items.

Stone Hoe would be the best option since you can buy the ingredients from vendors and craft them there. Then just sell them back to the vendor. Just remember that while you are crafting you cannot use the torch.

Quest Progress

With torch in hand, and food in your bag. You should be able to make progress with the quests in your journal. I tried to progress a quest and found myself out of food and torches. And stuck in a village with no food vendors. Preferably take quests that take place in the vicinity of your home base.

Prepare for Next Winter

Well done for making it through the most painful season in the game. The difficulty bumps up a lot during Winter. Now that you have survived the first one, you can focus on preparing for the next one. Rather than rely on torches and food from stores. You will need to become more self-sufficient.

To do this I would recommend building farms and progressing with the village quest line. It will give you the task of securing seeds and fertilizer from vendors. Use the same tips above to make money to be able to afford the seeds. Then make sure to build farms afterward and build a barn once your farming technology improves. This will mean you can leave farming to other residents if you have any. If you have the hunting lodge built, assign settlers to hunt for food. Then raise your Crafting technology so that you can build a kitchen. Again assign a settler to the kitchen so they can make the most of the meat.

The next port of call is to get warm clothing. If like me, you haven’t progressed far enough along to unlock the sewing station. Go to Branica with as much gold as you can locate.

Do all these tips and the next Winter should be far easier than any of the others.
