We’ll now dive into the guide at hand. We’ll split the article up into a few different sections so that it’s easier for you to process.


Forestry is a part of the Character Development system of the game, and it’s primarily used for gathering and finishing wood. There’s a variety of different wood types in the game, and each one requires you to advance further down the Forestry table. Advancing in Forestry also allows you to unlock better woodcutting axes, too.

Different Kinds Of Wood

We’ve already established that there’s a few different kinds of wood in the game, but you may be wondering how it’s acquired.

If you look at the Forestry table once more, you can see that you can create an upgrade path vertically or horizontally. Each of these different paths will unlock different features for you.

A horizontal progression is relatively simple; it reduces the time it takes to chop wood, and will slightly increase the amount gathered.

However, a vertical progression is much more complex. As you go down the table, you’ll unlock different kinds of wood. The further down the table you go, the higher the quality.

We’ll now list the different kinds of wood that you can unlock by taking a vertical progression on the Forestry table:

  • Common Wood
  • Quality Wood
  • Decent Wood
  • Great Wood
  • Excellent Wood

How To Collect Wood

There’s two different ways you can collect wood. These consist of:

  1. Using a Lumbermill
  2. Collecting wood in the wilderness

If you want to collect some of the higher tiers of wood, such as great wood and excellent wood, then you’ll have to seek it out. Unfortunately, it’s found in some of the more hotter areas of the map, towards the centre. This makes it both dangerous and competitive to acquire.

Due to the different types of wood in the game, you’ll need a different axe for each. See below to make sure you’re using the right axe:

  • Common Wood – Novice’s Axe
  • Quality Wood – Apprentice’s Axe
  • Decent Wood – Journeyman’s Axe
  • Great Wood – Craftman’s Axe
  • Excellent Wood – Master’s Axe

How To Finish Wood

Finishing wood is an essential part of gathering wood. If wood is not finished, then it will rot after 30 days. (Not all is lost if your wood rots, though – it can be reused as fuel.) If you’re collecting wood in bulk, then this next section of our Forestry guide is a must-read!

Wood is finished with oil, and there’s three different kinds of oil in Gloria Victis. We’ll list them in order of quality, starting from worst to best:

  • Oil
  • Suet
  • Crafting Oil

Different kinds of oil are, as you have probably guessed, used for different kinds of wood. We’ll list them below, and match them with which oils are compatible:

  • Common Wood – Oil, Suet, Crafting Oil
  • Quality Wood – Oil, Suet, Crafting Oil
  • Decent Wood – Oil, Suet, Crafting Oil
  • Great Wood – Suet, Crafting Oil
  • Excellent Wood – Crafting Oil

It’s important to note that a Carpentry Table is required in order to finish wood.
