Defeating all five Valheim bosses is no easy feat. Let our guides help you choose the best weapons and armor, and walk you through how to defeat each of the bosses in this Norse-inspired world

There are five bosses you’ll need to defeat in Valheim. Each boss marks the end of a chapter in your journey through Valheim.

Each boss will drop an item necessary to your progression within the five biomes, as well as grant you a Forsaken Power — but before you can defeat these bosses,you need to find the Vegivisir — or Runestones — marking the locations of their altars and how to summon them; as well as what you’ll need to do to come out the victor.

First boss: Eikthyr

Biome: Meadows

Eikthyr is the first boss you’ll, and though not the easiest fight by any standard, view this one as more of a tutorial for what you’ll be facing later. It won’t take you long until you’re ready to fight him, but we highly recommend that you get used to the mechanics of the game — such as construction and crafting — before you decide to take on Eikthyr.

Once you’ve defeated him you’ll be able to enter the Black Forest biome.
