Valheim Coal Location: Where To Find & How To Get

Published

on

Coal is another Valheim crafting material you’ll need to get early in the game if you wish to improve your settlement or get better gear for your Viking.

The Valheim Coal; however, unlike other materials (Flint for example) can be found or can be produced. On top of that, if you need large quantities, you can also farm Coal in Valheim.

So, below I’ll tell you everything you need to know about the Coal in Valheim, including how to farm it.

But first, let’s see why you need it.

How To Use The Valheim Coal

This specific material plays a major role once you unlock the ability to mine. Or after you defeat the first boss, and get the Antler Pickaxe.

The said axe allows you to mine various types of Ore, but you can’t use them in their current state.

This means that you’ll need to smelt them into bars, and to do this you need a Smelter.

The Valheim Smelter or the smelting process requires two components: Coal and Ore (Copper, Tin, Iron, or Silver).

Or simply put, first you need Coal to get your Smelter up and running, and then you’ll need it whenever you want to smelt something.

How To Get Coal In Valheim

There are several methods to get Coal in the video game developed by Iron Gate and one method to farm it.

This material can also be found in random chests; however, this is the worst method because we know how rare they are.

Overcooking Food

The second method requires a Cooking Station and it costs you food. Or simply put you trade Raw Meat or Neck Tails for Coal.

Basically, after you build the Cookin Station you will have to overcook your Raw Meat and Neck Tails.

Just place these items on the Cooking Station and wait for them to overcook. As a result, you’ll get Coal but the food is wasted.

Keep in mind that both Raw Meat and Neck Tails have specific cooking times (25 seconds and 20 seconds), which means that you’ll need to wait for more than that to burn them.

From Wood

Next, we have the third method which requires Wood and the Charcoal Kiln.

Valheim Coal Location

Use the Kiln to get Coal

The building itself is unlocked along with the Smelter, and this is the proper way to get Coal in Valheim. To build a Charcoal Kiln you need two crafting materials:

  • 20 Stone
  • 5 Surtling Cores – found in Burial Chambers or dropped by Surtlings

Once you build this structure, you will be able to produce this material; however, there are several things you should know about the process.

The Charcoal Kiln uses Wood, Core Wood, or Fine Wood to produce Coal and the process takes 25 seconds. You’ll get one unit for every unit of wood; however, if you have various types of wood in your inventory you should be careful because there is a specific order you’ll need to know.

In other words, the Kiln prioritizes Normal Wood, then Core Wood, and finally Fine Wood, so you want to make sure you don’t waste other wood than the one you have in excess.

Surtlings Drops

Finally, you can get Coal from Surtlings which can be found in the Swamp Biome.

These enemies also drop Surtling Cores and they are quite common, but keep in mind that they can set your character on fire and deal damage over time.

If you’re looking to get Coal from them, there is a trick which basically allows you to farm this material.

How To Farm Coal In Valheim

Since Surtlings also drop Coal, the farming method involves a Valheim cheat or command line that allows you to summon these enemies as many times as you want.

The steps you’ll need to follow are quite straightforward but be careful because there is also a chance to be killed in the process, so make sure you activate the God Mode we already discussed. Here is what you have to do next:

  • Press F5 to enter the game’s console
  • Type imacheater to enter Cheat Mode
  • Type god to activate God Mode
  • Now type event surtlings to start an event during which Surtlings come after you. You can do this in any Biome
  • For every Surtling you kill you’ll get Coal
  • Use event surtlings to summon more

And that’s it, Vikings! Now you know how to get Coal in Valheim, and also how to farm it.

Valheim Silver Necklaces Locations: How To Get & Use

Published

on

By

Silver Necklaces are Valheim valuables similar to Amber Pearls, Amber, and Rubies, which means that they can’t be used in crafting but only for trading.

Furthermore, the Valheim Silver Necklace is the most expensive item you can trade; therefore, it is worth knowing where to find them and why you should always get these while playing the video game developed by Iron Gate.

Additionally, if you follow this guide, you’ll also learn how to get unlimited Silver Necklaces in Valheim.

How To Use The Valheim Silver Necklace

In order to turn this item into Coins; first, you’ll have to find Haldor.

The NPC in the image below; however, doesn’t have a fixed location, which means you have two options when it comes to finding him.

Valheim Silver Necklaces ocations How To Use

Bring all your Silver Necklaces to Haldor

The easiest way is to use the spawn Haldor console command; which basically is a cheat that summons Haldor anywhere on the map.

This; though, may not please your friends, and in this case, you’ll need to use the legit method.

And here things get complicated because since Haldor spawns randomly, it means that you’ll have to explore all areas until you find him.

However, according to many Valheim players, Haldor is usually found in the Black Forest Biomes, so make sure you start with those.

Once you find Haldor, just approach him and hit the sell button to turn your Silver Necklace(s) into Coins.

For each Valheim Silver Necklace you sell, you’ll receive 30 Coins.

Where To Find Silver Necklaces In Valheim

Valheim Silver Necklaces have specific locations. Outside, you won’t be able to find them in random chests unless they are buried.

This means that you’ll need the Wishbone dropped by Bonemass, or the third boss.

Valheim Wishbone

Use the Wishbone to locate buried chests

Alternatively, you can look for these items in the following Biomes:

  • Meadows – Check the Stone Graves and Viking Graveyards
  • Mountains – Inside Graves

Valheim Infinite Silver Necklaces Cheat

Assuming you need Silver Necklaces instantly, you can opt to use a console command or a cheat.

To do so, simply follow these steps:

  • Press F5 to bring up the game’s console
  • Next, type imacheater to activate the Valheim Cheat Mode
  • Finally, type spawn SilverNecklace X where represents the number of Silver Necklaces you wish to get. For example, spawn SilverNecklace 50 awards you 50 Necklaces as you can see in the first image above

Remember that this farming method is an alternative for the Infinite Money Cheat and has the same results.

Essentially, instead of getting infinite coins, you get infinite necklaces that are turned into coins.

And that’s it, friends. Now you know where to find Silver Necklaces in Valheim and how to use them.

Published

By

Rubies are Valheim valuables that just like Amber Pearls can’t be used in crafting but they allow you to get Coins while playing the video game developed by Iron Gate.

Therefore, the Valheim Ruby has a specific purpose, so below I’ll tell you where to find these valuables, how to use them, and even how you can get unlimited Rubies.

How To Use The Valheim Ruby

Because it’s not a Crafting Material, a Ruby in Valheim is used only for trading, but to achieve this, first, you’ll have to find Haldor.

The friendly trader you see below spawns in random locations; however, there are two ways to find him faster.

Valheim Rubies Locations How To Use

Haldor is the trader interested in your Rubies

The legit way is to start looking for him along with your friends, and in this case, you’ll want to start with the Black Forest Biomes.

That’s because he seems to spawn quite often in the Black Forest.

Alternatively, if you play the game alone you can use the spawn Haldor console command.

You can also use it in multiplayer if your party agrees, and Haldor will spawn in front of you. Yes, even inside your settlement.

Now that you know how to find Haldor, simply place your Rubies in the inventory and use the sell button when you talk to him.

For each Valheim Ruby you trade, you’ll receive 20 Coins.

Where To Find Rubies In Valheim

Valheim Rubies like all other Valuables in the video game can be found in random chests outside or while exploring dungeons.

As such, you want to focus on the following Biomes:

Valheim How To Open Crypt Gates

Use the Swamp Key to open the Crypt Gates

As you can see there are plenty of locations to get Rubies in Valheim, but there is also an easier way to get as many as you want.

Valheim Infinite Rubies Cheat

Assuming you need Rubies instantly, you can opt to use a console command or a cheat.

To do so, simply follow these steps:

  • Press F5 to bring up the game’s console
  • Next, type imacheater to activate the Valheim Cheat Mode
  • Finally, type spawn Ruby X where represents the number of Rubies you wish to get. For example, spawn Ruby 50 awards you 50 Rubies as you can see in the first image above

Again, this farming method is a variation for the Infinite Money Cheat and has the same outcome.

Basically, you won’t use the direct money cheat, but a cheat to get Rubies, that are turned into Coins.

And that’s it, friends. Now you know where to find Rubies in Valheim and how to use them.
