Valheim Elder Ancient Bowl: How To Summon Second Boss & Burn Their Young Runestone

Published

on

The Valheim Elder Ancient Bowl is the second main objective you’ll need to focus on after you deal with Eikthyr or the first boss in the video game developed by Iron Gate.

Similar to Eikthyr’s Mystical Altar, The Elder Ancient Bowl features a small puzzle and in order to summon The Elder or the second boss, you’ll have to solve another riddle.

As such, below I’ll tell you how to use the Valheim Ancient Bowl, what items you have to burn, and where to find them.

The Elder Ancient Bowl is found in the Black Forest biome, just how the Eikthyr Mystical Altar is found in the Meadows biome.

What Is The Elder Runestone In Valheim

Once you arrive at the location marked on your map, you’ll find The Elder Sacrificial Altar which is a bit different from the previous one.

If you look around you’ll see an Ancient Bowl burning in the middle and a Runestone that looks like the one below.

Valheim Elder Runestone

Pay close attention to the Elder Runestone

Approach the Runestone and read it to notice the following message: Burn their young.

From the previous altar, you may remember that these runestones provide hints on the items that must be offered in order to summon a boss.

This one is no different. But what Burn their young means in Valheim?

Well, it refers to offspring. Or if you want, seeds. In our case, we are talking about Ancient Seeds.

How To Get Ancient Seeds For The Valheim Elder Ancient Bowl

Luckily for us, the Valheim Ancient Seeds don’t require too much effort since they come from multiple sources.

The bad thing though, is that the drop rate is terrible, meaning that you’ll spend quite some time to get the required number which is 3.

Therefore here is where to find Ancient Seeds in Valheim.

The best sources for the Valheim Ancient Seeds are the Greydwarf Spawners like the one you see below.

Valheim Greydwarf Nests

Look for Greydwarf Nests

The Greydwarf Nests have a 100% Ancient Seeds drop rate, meaning that once destroyed a nest provides one Ancient Seed.

To find these, circle around the Elder Altar in the Black Forest.

The second best source is represented by the Greydwarf Brutes and Greydwarf Shamans (pictured below).

Valheim Greydwarf Shaman

Greydwarf Brutes and Greydwarf Shamans also drop Ancient Seeds

These enemies spawn in the Black Forest biome and they are easy to identify; however, they are also the hardest to kill. Especially the Brutes.

The drop rate here is below 100% meaning that not all of them will provide Ancient Seeds, but they spawn constantly.

And finally, you can get Ancient Seeds from the random chests, and these are the worst sources, not only because they are rare, but the drop chance is also terrible.

How To Summon The Elder Boss In Valheim

Now, after you get 3 Ancient Seeds, it’s time to get back to the Ancient Bowl in Valheim and make the offering.

Simply equip the Ancient Seeds by dragging them to the upper bar, then approach the bowl and press the corresponding key to burn them.

These are the Ancient Seeds you’ll need to burn

Remember that you need 3 seeds to summon the Elder.

Again we won’t go into details on how to defeat the Elder, but you may want to try some fire arrows, or obviously, you can create a new character and try using the God Mode Valheim cheat to observe the Elder’s attacks.

This boss drops the following items:

How To Use Elder Trophy In Valheim

Upon obtaining the Elder Trophy you’ll have to go back to the Sacrificial Stones.

Place it on the tallest stone (pictured below), in order to get a new Power.

Valheim Elder Trophy

Take the Elder Trophy to the Sacrificial Stones

Unlike Eikthyr’s Power, this one is focused on increasing the speed when cutting wood.

Make sure you activate it but keep in mind that you can have only one power equipped; so, whenever you want to switch between them, you’ll have to return to the Sacrificial Stones.

And that’s it! That’s how you summon The Elder boss and how you use the Valheim Ancient Bowl; so how about we talk about Bonemass next?

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:

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.

Valheim Amber Pearls Locations: How To Get & Use

Published

Amber Pearls are Valheim valuables that can’t be used in crafting but they can get you a lot of coins, provided you know how to use them while playing the video game developed by Iron Gate.

Similar to the Valheim Amber we already covered, the Amber Pearls have a specific purpose, so below I’ll tell you where to find them and how to farm these shiny items.

Furthermore, I’ll also tell you how to get infinite Valheim Amber Pearls, using a simple console command.

How To Use The Valheim Amber Pearl

Since it is not a Crafting Material, the Amber Pearl in Valheim can only be used for trading; however, this item requires a specific NPC we already met.

His name is Haldor and he spawns randomly on your map, meaning that he doesn’t have a fixed location.

So the first thing you’ll want to do in order to use your Amber Pearls is to find him. You can see Haldor in the screenshot below.

Valheim Amber Pearls Locations How To Use

Haldor is willing to buy your pearls

If you wish to find Haldor faster, you should start your search with the Black Fores Biomes, which seem to be his favorite ones.

Alternatively, you can force spawn Haldor anywhere on the map simply by using the spawn Haldor console command.

After you find him, make sure your Amber Pearls are in your inventory, then hit the sell button.

The option to sell removes all the Valuables in your inventory, including all Rubies, Ambers and Silver Necklaces.

In exchange, Haldor will give you Coins you can use to buy the items he sells.

Where To Find Amber Pearls In Valheim

The Amber Pearls can be found usually in dungeons; however, sometimes you may be able to also find them outside in random chests.

As such, if you want to get Amber Pearls faster you should focus on exploring the dungeons available in specific Biomes.

Start with the Burial Chambers and Troll Caves in the Black Forest and make sure you level up your character to defeat Bonemass.

The said boss drops the Swamp Key that allows you to unlock the Sunken Crypts Gates. Inside these dungeons, you’ll also find Amber Pearls.

You can see how these crypts look like below; however, be advised that you’ll have to mine a lot of Muddy Scrap Piles to fully explore these dungeons.

Valheim How To Open Crypt Gates

Use the Swamp Key to open the Crypt Gates

Finally, as you advance through the game you’ll also be able to explore the Stone Graves and Viking Graveyards in the Meadows Biome.

Valheim Infinite Amber Pearls Cheat

If by any chance you need Amber Pearls instantly, you can also 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 AmberPearl X where represents the number of pearls you wish to get. For example, spawn AmberPearl 50 awards you 50 Pearls as you can see in the first image above

This method is basically a variation for the Infinite Money Cheat we talked about and serves the same purpose.

Simply put instead of getting unlimited money, you’ll get infinite pearls that you can sell to get, well…infinite coins.

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