Valheim Eikthyr Mystical Altar: How To Summon First Boss, Offer Items & Hunt His Skin Runestone

Published

on

Valheim Eikthyr Mystical Altar is the first main objective you have to complete when you start the video game developed by Iron Gate, while Eikthyr is the first boss you’ll need to defeat.

The Eikthyr Mystical Altar in Valheim also includes a small puzzle you’ll need to solve, and although it’s not hard to decipher it, completing the required task is quite challenging.

In fact, after defeating the Valheim Eikthyr boss I noticed that summoning him is a lot harder than it looks.

So, below I will tell you how to solve the Valheim Eikthyr Mystical Altar puzzle, what offer items do you need, and hopefully I’ll help you save some time in the process.

As such let’s start with the Valheim Eikthyr Altar that Hugin reveals for you.

Since the game world is randomly generated, there is no point to talk about its location but is in the Meadows.

What Is The Eikthyr Runestone In Valheim

The Valheim Eikthyr Runestone pictured below offers hints on how to summon the first boss in the video game.

Valheim Eikthyr Runestone

Pay close attention to the Eikthyr Runestone

It may look confusing, but it’s not, and all you have to do is to pay close attention to it.

As you can see above; the runestone features a deer on top of it. And basically, that’s all you need to know, but there is also a confusing hint because if you read the runestone, you’ll see the following translated message: Hunt his skin.

Now, you may think that you’ll need to hunt deer skins for the Valheim Eikthyr Altar, but that’s not what you need to do. To summon the first boss you’ll need something else. As in deer trophies.

How To Get Deer Trophies For The Valheim Eikthyr Mystical Altar

Now as said, getting deer trophies in Valheim is a bit trickier, and here is why.

First, because hunting deer may sound easy but is not, since you have only two options early in the game. You can use a bow, to shoot them; or you can run after them and attempt a melee attack.

The problem here is that deer are not as easy to kill as you think. So you either need to increase your running skill by running as much as you can, or you can focus on unlocking the crafting table and then getting your first bow.

Once you do that, you’ll want to use that bow as much as possible. And since a bow is useless without arrows, you’ll need crafting materials. Hence the first option (meleeing deer) is a bit faster.

Obviously, you can focus on leveling your skills and focus on exploration as you see fit, but the idea here is the same. You either run fast enough or you become a skilled archer.

Finally, there is one more thing to consider. And that’s the deer trophies drop rates.

Or simply put, not every deer drops a deer trophy in Valheim. This means that you’ll need to hunt more than two to get the required number of deer trophies for the Valheim Eikthyr Mystical Altar. Even though you need only two deer trophies.

How To Summon Eikthyr Boss In Valheim

Now assuming that you manage to get two Valheim deer trophies (you can see them below), it’s time to return to the altar.

Valheim Eikthyr Mystical Altar

Get 2 deer trophies to summon Eikthyr

These two items are basically the Eikthyr Mystical Altar offer items or offerings if you want.

To summon the boss, you’ll need to equip them first. Simply drag them from your inventory to the upper bar, then approach the altar and press the corresponding key to offer items at Eikthyr Mystical Altar.

I won’t go into details on how to beat Eikthyr, but just so you know he’s quite powerful and has three different attacks.

If you want to see how powerful Eikthyr is, you can start a new game, and while playing alone you can use the Valheim cheats we discussed earlier.

Simply maximize your stamina, then activate God Mode; hunt deer until you have 2 deer trophies, then summon him. This method allows you to learn more about this boss, so you can get ready for the real deal.

Once you defeat Eikthyr (preferably without cheating) you’ll loot several items.

  • Hard Antler – Unlocks the Antler Pickaxe crafting recipe allowing you to mine Stone, Copper, and Tin
  • Eikthyr Trophy – Which is some sort of a quest item

The Hard Antlers are important, but the trophy is the real prize here.

Here is what you have to do with the Eikthyr Trophy in Valheim.

How To Use Eikthyr Trophy In Valheim

With the trophy in your inventory, you’ll need to return to the Sacrificial Stones.

These stones are marked on your map. There are 5 of them which means that there are 5 Valheim bosses so far.

Travel to the Sacrificial Stones, then look for the small one. It has a stag engraved on it, and it looks like the one below.

Valheim Eikthyr Sacrificial Stone

Place the trophy on the Sacrificial Stone

Move around until you see the option to attach the item by pressing E.

Once you do that, you’ll learn more about the Eikthyr power.

This power however must be activated and has a cooldown period. Nevertheless, it’s quite nice to reduce your stamina consumption and jump stamina usage by 60% from time to time.

Just remember to activate the power once you place the trophy.

And that’s it, Viking! That’s how you summon the first boss and deal with the Valheim Eikthyr Mystical Altar, so how about facing The Edler next?

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.

Valheim Rubies Locations: How To Get & Use

Published

on

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.
