Stones are one of the most important resources in Valheim. They allow players to craft a stone axe, which is an essential in-game item.
In order to harvest and collect stones in Valheim, it is extremely important for players to have an antler pickaxe equipped. To build the antler pickaxe, players will need to perform two tasks.
- Players will need to upgrade their in-game workbench to level two; and
- Players will need to defeat Eikthyr, the first boss in Valheim, to collect the hard antler.
Once players have performed both tasks, they can craft the antler pickaxe on their workbench. To craft the antler pickaxe in Valheim, players need:
- 10 pieces of wood; and
- one piece of hard antler (obtained from Eikthyr).
Harvesting stone in Valheim
To harvest stones in Valheim:
- players will have to destroy chunks of stones that can be found across the Viking-themed realm,
- or be lucky enough to receive pieces of stone after defeating Greydwarf enemies.
Players can receive 10 pieces of stone every time they slay a Greydwarf creature. Greydwarf creatures don't start spawning till players have slain Eikthyr, the first boss in Valheim.
Once players have defeated the first boss in Valheim, they can farm stones by defeating Greydwarf creatures in the Black Forest biome.
The antler pickaxe will allow players to attack and break stones that can be found across the map of Valheim. Combining these methods will allow players to farm stone resources very quickly in Valheim. Stones are extremely important resources for crafting the stone axe.
The stone axe allows players to chop down Beech, Fir, and Pine trees to harvest a collection of regular wood as well as core wood in Valheim. The antler pickaxe that players craft to farm stones can be replaced as they continue to progress further in the game. It is ideal to craft a bronze axe in order to harvest iron ores in Valheim.
Valheim has managed to take the entire gaming community by storm within the first two weeks of its early access release.
The developers at Iron Gate AB have done well to win the trust of the gaming community. There have been three early patches to optimize the game according to the players' requirements.
