Just like the first game, a huge part of Slime Rancher 2 is exploring the world.

 On first inspection, the world of this game might seem quite small,

Rainbow Fields is a brilliant starting location that will let you set up a great beginner’s farm, 

but if you want to sink your teeth into the advanced stuff, you’ll need to branch out further.

From the first island, you have two options of where to go next. The volcanic Ember Valley, 

or mysterious Starlight Strand. Either way, you’re going to have to do a bit of legwork to get there so we’ll tell you where to go and what you have to do.

As you venture through the main areas of Rainbow Fields you’ll likely come across a strange white pillar with gold trimmings on top.

This is the portal to Ember Valley, but you need to activate it first. 

To do that you need to find the Pink Gordo slime on the north edge of the island.
