The Water Trough is an important structure that will help you provide water to animals you have in your base. Your mounts (Jaguars, Llamas) as well as breeding animals in their coop/pen will consistently need water to survive. Thankfully, you can build the Trough at the building workshop, and once you do that, here’s how to fill it with water.

How to Craft the Water Trough in Soulmask

To build the trough, you require the crafting materials of x24 Planks and x6 Wooden Handles.

Planks can be made at the Carpenter’s Table with a Log and the latter can be obtained by swinging a Stone Axe (Recipe: 3 Stones and 1 Branch) on a tree. A Wooden Handle also requires 1 Log and 1 Branch. Branches are easily found on the map on the ground and if you don’t see them in a particular area, you can chop down trees as well.

How to Craft the Water Tank for the Trough

Now that you have built the Animal Water Trough, here’s how to fill it with water. What you need is a Water Tank for which you need 20 Clay, 2 Leather Rope and 2 Ceramic Mold.

Leather Rope can be crafted at the Loom with Rough Leather and 2x Leather. You can covert Beast Hide, Pelt, and Deerskin at the Tanning Rack to get Rough Leather, whereas you can use Tanning Fluid at the same crafting station for Leather. Tanning Fluid can be obtained by using 2x Vine and 2x Tree Bark at the Tanning Rack.
