In Valheim, Flint is a very common material you’ll need to find quite early in the game, and even though it is common, this material can be found only in specific places.
Unlike wood or stone, for example, it is a bit trickier to get, because wood and stones are everywhere. But this one is not.
So, if you’re wondering where to find Flint in Valheim, I’ll tell you exactly where it is.
Before we talk about the location of this material though, first let’s see why you need it.
How To Use The Valheim Flint
Well, since it’s a crafting material, it’s quite important, for various reasons.
By using Flint, you can craft several weapons. To name just a few, you’ll need Flint for:
But these, as you can guess will be replaced later in the game. This material; however, plays a crucial role when it comes to upgrading your equipment.
Why? Because you’ll need Flint for workbench upgrades, meaning that after you unlock the workbench, you’ll have to upgrade it.
And how do you upgrade the Valheim workbench? By building workbench improvements. Which, as you can guess; require Flint.
Two examples here are the Chopping Block and the Tanning Rack.
For the Valheim Chopping Block, you need 10 Flint and for the Tanning Rack, you need 15.
So basically only these two require 25 units. So where to find it?
Where To Find Flint In Valheim
The long answer short, you’ll find Flint in Valheim, in any spot where water meets the soil. Or earth if you want.
This is a very interesting thing in Valheim because it respects the known origins of this sedimentary rock, and you don’t have to be a geologist to do a Google search.
And Valheim sticks to it, however, there is also a common error spread by other websites that it is found only in the Meadows; which is totally false.
It is found on the shores of all water sources.
It can be an ocean, a lake, or just a simple river like the one in my screenshot.
As long as you follow the course of water you’ll find this material.
How To Farm Flint In Valheim
Again the long answer short here is you can’t farm Flint in Valheim. And no, there is no Valheim cheat that can help you achieve this, like the one you can use for Surtling Cores.
And again there is a huge mistake players do these days; as in waiting for this crafting material to respawn. As a result, they waste a lot of time.
If you want to get Flint fast in Valheim, find a river or any other water source and start moving along its shores. What you are looking for are small stones like the one in my image above.
By following that river I ended up with 73 units in less than 8 minutes.
Which should be more than you need early in the game.
And that’s it friends. That’s how you find Flint in Valheim, the video game developed by Iron Gate; but obviously, if you have a better way, I can’t wait for you to share it with me.
Valheim Teleporting Cheat: How To Move Tin, Copper, Iron, Silver & Black Metal
Valheim‘s teleportation system may not be the best feature in the video game developed by Iron Gate, but understanding how it works is mandatory; and while we will not discuss Portals, in the guide below I’ll tell you how the Valheim Teleporting Cheat works, and why it is so cool to use it.
As you most likely know, in order to move from one point to another in Valheim, you need to build Portals.
These structures are unlocked when you collect your first Fine Wood.
Upon unlocking the Valheim Portal recipe, you’ll need the following materials to build one:
- 10 X Greydwarf Eye
- 20 X Fine Wood
- 2 X Surtling Core
Next, you’ll need the same amount of crafting materials to build another Portal and connect it to the first one. This is done by setting the same tag to both portals. Let’s say “home1”.
Now your portals are connected and you can teleport between them. Except that sometimes you can’t, as you can see below.
An Item Prevents You From Teleporting
When the message above appears on your screen it means that you can’t step through a Portal.
Why is that? Or what does “An item prevents you from teleporting” mean in Valheim?
This means that one of the objects in your inventory doesn’t allow you to fast travel. And that item in my case was a Tin Bar; however, there are other items that will deny your teleportation.
Below, you can see the list of all Valheim items that can’t be teleported or items that won’t allow you to fast travel using Portals.
- Tin Ore
- Copper Ore
- Scrap Iron
- Black Metal Scrap
- Black Metal
- Silver Ore
- Dragon Egg
You can see that the list of items and crafting materials is quite long, and these objects complicate things a bit because you’ll have to carry them back to your base using a Longship if they are on another island, or simply by walking back to your main settlement.
Now, since the amount of crafting materials you’ll have to gather in the game is quite impressive, let’s see how the Vaheim Teleporting Cheat works; because as you know there are several console commands you can use.
How To Use The Valheim Teleport Cheat For Teleporting Everything
From the beginning, it’s worth mentioning that this cheating method also works while playing with friends; however, it is recommended that you use it in single-player mode, for obvious and ethical reasons.
Activating Cheat Mode In Valheim
The first thing you’ll want to do is to return to your main settlement and activate the Valheim Cheat Mode:
- Press F5 to bring up the console
- Type imacheater
- Now you’ll see a short message: Cheats: True
- Additionally, you can activate the God Mode by typing god. This step however is not mandatory but recommended
Recording Your Settlement’s Coordinates
The next step is to record your settlement’s location. Or to know your Valheim coordinates because you will use them to teleport back.
- Open your console again by pressing F5
- Type pos to see three varialbes: X, Y, Z
The trick here is quite easy to understand. The pos command tells you where your character is located, and since my character is inside the settlement it means that both of them have the same coordinates.
After you type the pos command, the only variables you need to remember are X and Z. If needed write them down. In this case, X is -379 and Z is -392.
Find The Materials You Want To Farm & Teleport
Now that you know where you have to return, it’s time to go after the materials you need. If let’s say you want to farm Copper you’ll go to a Black Forest biome.
Once you find the spot where the resource is located, you’ll once again record its location by typing pos.
To better understand this, in the image below, you can see my character in front of a Copper deposit.
The X and Z coordinates of this deposit are -477 and -592.
Obviously, the next step is to stock up on the resources you need. In this example, we are talking about Copper which you may remember can’t be teleported according to its description.
Except that it can. And not only Copper. All Valheim crafting materials can be teleported including Tin, Iron, Silver, and Black Metal. Simply by using this cheat.
How To Teleport Everything In Valheim (Tin, Copper, Iron, Silver & Black Metal)
Now that we have the maximum amount of Copper that my character can carry; is time to get back to the settlement using the coordinates we have found earlier.
- Press F5 again to open the console
- Type goto x,z where X and Z are the coordinates of your settlement. In my example, these coordinates as explained are -379 and -392. This means that the console command I had to use is goto -379,-392
As you can see in the image below, this command allows you to instantly teleport in Valheim along with all materials that can’t be teleported by normal means or through Portals.
Finally, after unloading the goods, you can return to the same spot and keep farming. This is done using the second set of coordinates. For this example, the Copper deposit is located at -477 and -592. So the next command in my case is goto -477,-592
And that’s it friends! Now you know how the Valheim Teleporting Cheat works, and also how to teleport basically everything at any given time, even if you are on the other side of the map.
Valheim Withered Bones: Where To Find & How To Use
Withered Bones are Valheim items you’ll find in the Swamp Biome of the video game developed by Iron Gate, and even though they may seem important, they serve a single purpose.
The Valheim Withered Bones; however are also quest-items, and once you use them to complete your objective, you should not carry them anymore.
So, let’s quickly go over the Withered Bones in Valheim, and learn how to use them and where to find them.
What Is A Valheim Withered Bone
As said, the Withered Bones are quest-items, meaning that you’ll need them to summon the third boss in the game, named Bonemass.
Other than that they are pretty much useless; that’s why once you defeat Bonemass, you can stop carrying them.
According to the game’s description, a Withered Bone is “A giant bone, knotted like old wood”. A single bone has a weight of 1.0, and you can stack up to 30 in a slot.
Finally, they can be teleported, and you can see them below.
Where To Find Withered Bones In Valheim
These items are very easy to find provided you know where to look for them and you have the required equipment.
They are located in the Swamp Biome and they have two possible locations:
- You can find them by mining the Muddy Scrap Piles
- Or you can find them in small alcoves in the Sunken Crypts
Let’s start with the Muddy Scrap Piles.
These deposits can be found outside the Sunken Crypts as well but they require the Wishbone which is dropped by Bonemass.
Since you need the Withered Bones to summon him, you’ll want to look for the Scrap Piles inside the Sunken Crypts.
Once inside, use the Antler Pickaxe to mine the Muddy Scrap Piles and get these bones, as well as to move from one room to another.
You’ll be able to craft the said pickaxe after you deal with Eikthyr.
Keep in mind though that the Valheim Withered Bones can also be found without mining. Just look around for alcoves whenever you enter a new room.
The moment you get 10 you can stop searching for them because that’s the number of bones you need to summon Bonemass.
How To Use The Valheim Withered Bones
Assuming you have 10 Withered Bones, next you’ll want to find the location of Bonemass.
This means that you’ll continue to explore the Sunken Crypts until you find the Vegvisir Bonemass which is a runestone like the one below.
Examine it, then mark the location of the third boss on your map.
Next, exit the crypt and travel to the summoning altar. Here you should be able to see a rather large skull (pictured above).
Equip the 10 Withered Bones in one of your quick slots, then make the offering by standing in front of the skull’s mouth.
This will summon Bonemass, and this is why you need the Valheim Withered Bones.
Once you deal with him there is no point to collect these items anymore unless you want to fight the third boss again.
That’s how you use the Withered Bones in Valheim and where you find them, so start mining.
