Valheim’s Viking-filled world is brimming with all kinds of items and rare treasures, but knowing where to find key crafting components can prove difficult.
Just like most survival games, Valheim features loads of items for players to collect and craft with. From goopy Guck to wonderful wishbones, there are countless materials scattered around each of Valheim’s biomes. If you wish to survive against the game’s deadly bosses and become the best battle-hardened Viking, then you’ll need to get your hands on the best gear.
Whether you’re looking to craft Valheim’s Pickaxes or just want to build the strongest base, the game’s materials will enable you to do just that. Of course, knowing where to find every Valheim item can take a while, so if you’re tired of scrolling through the game’s wiki, then check out our item list.
While locating common items like wood and leather are incredibly easy to find, there are a number of items that are a little more elusive. There’s nothing worse than trudging through Valheim’s vast biomes in order to find that one specific item. This is particularly true when you have just started up your Viking adventure.
After all, Valheim is at its best when you’re busy adding new additions to your base or fighting the game’s mythical bosses. In order to stop any tiresome treks, we’ve outlined a number of the game’s most searched for items.
