Where to find rough amber in Lego Fortnite

As you progress in Lego Fortnite, you’ll need to find rough amber, a mineable resource found in a specific biome. If you started in grasslands like how we did, it can be irritating to figure out where to find amber.

Below we explain where to find amber in Lego Fortnite and how to harvest it.

To get rough amber, you’ll need to find a “dry valley mesa” biome. Unfortunately, we haven’t noticed any way to locate specific biomes. We had to run around a ton in order to find the dry valley mesa. You’ll know when you find it right away though, as its all brown like a desert, filled with rocky crags and cliffs. Don’t be discouraged and keep exploring around until you run into one.

Once you arrive in a dry valley mesa, the rough amber is at the top of those cliffs, which means, that’s right — you need to build stairs. Bring piles of wood with you to build stairs up these cliffs.

Rough amber is only mineable by uncommon pickaxes or better. Your common brown pickaxe will do no damage to it.

Once you farm up on rough amber, you can use it upgrade your Village Square, which is likely the first instance you’ll see of needing amber to begin with.
