Unlike Flint, for example, the Valheim Surtling Cores are a bit trickier to get, meaning that they require some fighting; as well as your presence in dangerous places.
So, if you’re asking where to find Surtling Cores in Valheim, well, we will talk about them below and I’ll tell you where to look for them.
But first, let’s see why Surtling Cores are so important for you and your Viking.
How To Use The Valheim Surtling Cores
This crafting material is connected to smelting, which is pretty important because it unlocks a series of items that will help you move from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. Most likely you’ll start looking for them after you deal with the first boss named Eikthyr.
These buildings are:
- Charcoal Kiln
As you can see below the Smelter and the Charcoal Kiln (used to produce Coal) require 5 Surtling Cores each, while the Portal requires 2 and the Ward only 1.
Now, even though the number of cores you need is quite small, it doesn’t hurt to know where to get them.
This brings us to the next question.
Where To Find Surtling Core In Valheim
There are three methods to get Surtling Cores in Valheim, but not all of them are good.
The worst source is represented by the chests you’ll find in various places.
Sometimes these chests may contain cores, but since we all know how rare they are, and because of the drop rate; looking for Surtling Cores in chests is the worst thing you can do.
The second method involves finding and defeating Surtlings.
In case you did not reach the Swamp yet; these are some type of fire creatures that throw fireballs at you and deal damage over time.
You’ll find them close to fire geysers and Rune Stones. As said, in the Swamp.
The good thing here is that the Surtling Cores are guaranteed drops, but the bad thing is that these creatures know how to put up a good fight.
So, we have one final method to get Surtling Cores in Valheim: the Burial Chambers.
If you just started the game, and don’t know what a Burial Chamber is, then you should know that these are small dungeons that can be found underground.
A Valheim Burial Chamber looks like this.
Once you find a Burial Chamber, head inside and fully explore it.
Obviously, you should expect some enemies; but the idea here is that these are the best locations to find Surtling Cores in Valheim.
As you can see below, a Surtling Core looks like a cube made of lava.
Keep in mind though that once explored and looted, the enemies and the items inside a Burial Chamber won’t respawn; so that dungeon is useless once you are done with it.
Valheim Surtling Cores Farming
Since this type of resource is also dropped by enemies, you can farm it; however, this requires you to use a specific Valheim cheat.
Without going into details, since we already covered all Valheim cheats and cheat codes, you’ll need to trigger an event if you wish to get infinite Surtling Cores in Valheim.
The event you’ll want to start or the command line you should use is event surtlings.
This cheat will spawn 8 or more Surtlings around you (regardless of your location), and since these enemies drop cores, it means that you can get as many as you want.
And that’s it, friends. Now you know where to find Surtling Cores in Valheim!
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.
