The merchant in Valheim, Haldor, is an extremely useful NPC who offers a bunch of unique items for players to purchase.
Haldor can also be crucial when it comes to players trying to sell their in-game valuables. However, locating the merchant in Valheim can be a little tricky as Haldor has no fixed spawn location. On top of that, Haldor does not even guarantee that he will spawn on a specific island.
This means that players might have to go through a fair deal of scavenging before finally running into Haldor.
Haldor usually spawns in the Black Forest biome, but due to the random generation of the world, the merchant can appear on various islands in Valheim.
Once the player is able to locate Haldor, they will be able to purchase the resources that the merchant has to offer as well as sell their own valuables in exchange for gold coins.

Haldor also purchases other resources and items for players in exchange for gold coins. Players can collect such resources by scavenging around the map of Valheim, especially in the Swamp biomes.
Having said that, finding Haldor remains a tricky task for most players due to the lack of a fixed spawn location on every map.
Players would even have to explore the Black Forest biome on multiple islands before they are finally able to locate Haldor in Valheim.
