Valheim Cooking Station: How To Build & Use

Published

on

The Valheim Cooking Station is one of the most important structures you’ll have to build the moment you start your Viking saga in the video game developed by Iron Gate, and since you’ll have to do it very early in the game, it may be quite confusing especially if you’re not used to playing open-world survival sandbox titles.

The Cooking Station in Valheim is mandatory in your settlement for various reasons; as you’re about to see.

After spending quite some time with Valheim, I’ll tell you everything you need to know about the Cooking Station so you can start cooking food right away.

How To Build A Cooking Station In Valheim

In order to get your Cooking Station up and running, first, you’ll need to know how crafting works in Valheim.

This is truly easy to achieve because basically, all you need to do is to get a hammer, which requires 3 wood and 2 stone.

You can get wood from branches, while stones are found on the ground.

Once you have the required amount, press TAB and craft a hammer.

The next step is to equip the hammer and you can do this by dragging it to the upper bar. Remember that this is your building tool, not your main weapon.

Now, simply select the hammer by pressing the corresponding number key, then right-click to bring up the construction menu.

Select the Crafting tab, then click on the Cooking Station. As you can see in my screenshot below, this structure requires additional wood, so make sure you get 2 more units.

Here is your Cooking Station

Things To Know About The Valheim Cooking Station

Now before we move forward with cooking in Valheim here are several hints you may find useful.

  • A Cooking Station must be placed over a campfire or hearth. The hearth becomes available later in the game, while the campfire can be built early in the game. Check the Misc tab
  • You can place more than one Cooking Station on a campfire or hearth. This trick helps you cook food faster
  • Since a Cooking Station requires a fire, you must protect it from rain; which means that you’ll need to build a roof above it

How To Cook Food In Valheim

Great, so assuming you have built the station, it’s time to put it to good use. As in start preparing your meals.

To do so, first, you’ll need to start a fire, and this requires even more wood. Get at least 10 units, then while standing close to the campfire, look at it and press E.

Now, you’ll do the same while looking at the Cooking Station; however, here we have two options.

  • By pressing E you’ll place a random food item from your inventory
  • If you want to cook specific items, you’ll have to equip them, then press the corresponding number to place them on the station

Finally, you’ll have to be aware that each item you cook, has a cooking time.

Without knowing these timeframes, the only thing you’ll cook in Valheim is Coal. It is a good method to get Coal but not the correct one.

All Valheim Recipes & Cooking Times

The following list includes all Valheim recipes and cooking times available as of right now:

  • Raw Meat – Cook it for 25 seconds to get Cooked Meat
  • Neck Tail – Cook it for 20 seconds to get Grilled Neck Tail
  • Raw Fish – Cook it for 30 seconds to get Cooked Fish
  • Raw Lox Meat – Cook it for 60 seconds to get Cooked Lox Meat

Keep in mind that if you leave an ingredient unattended you’ll overcook it, and even though Coal is a crafting material you’ll need, there are other ways to get it, without destroying a good piece of meat.

Usually, when a recipe is fully cooked you’ll see a spark, so pay close attention to the station.

And that’s it! Now you know how to cook in Valheim, so get ready to feast, or check this guide on how to cheat in Valheim.

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

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.
