These are great sources of silica pearl.... I got 53 from 1 dam.... Don't take everything left some wood so the dam doesn't breaks... U won't be attacked and u will have lots of silica pearls and cementing paste... Like if it helped
There is a simple way to get cementing paste off of these guys. You only need any flyer (I personally use a griffin) and a decent pike.
1. Whistle your flyer on follow
2. Find a couple beaver dams
3. Jump off your flyer and get the cementing paste
4. Drop anything you don’t want out of the dam
5. Jump back on your flyer and fly away
6. Come back and repeat
Do not kill or tame beavers if you want free cementing paste. if you kill them, you’ll have to go round killing everything else until more spawn, and if you tame them, same thing. If the beavers catch up to you in the water, stab them a couple times so their health is low and they start running away.
