About Giant Clams

The Giant Clams, when looted, may yield up to two of the following:

  • Two new alchemy reagents: Powdered Mother of Pearl and Clam Gall
    • Clam Gall is an offensively oriented reagent, while Powdered Mother of Pearl is more defensively oriented, granting new combinations of survival effects
  • Fish meat, for provisioning
  • Bait, including fish roe, guts, and worms
  • Grease solvents for alchemical poisons
  • Or, very rarely, clam-themed furnishings for your home
