This is a comprehensive guide on Biomes (Zones) in Valheim. Read on to learn all there is to know about the different Biomes in Valheim!
List of Contents
The land of Valheim is split into different regions called biomes. These biomes have their own visual design that will help you differentiate them from each other. You can see your current biome in the map on the upper right.
Not only do the biomes look different from each other, they also have different content waiting for you inside. Each biome will contain their own creatures and resources that can only be found in that biome. Each biome you go through will become more dangerous so you will want to craft better gear before venturing into a new one!
The Meadows is the starting area where anyone who enters Valheim for the first time will spawn in. Lush landscapes surrounded by tall and sturdy trees will greet you.
This biome is also the home of Valheim's first boss, Eikthyr.
The Black Forest is a stark contrast to the Meadow's calm and serene landscape. This particular biome hosts a variety of aggressive monsters such as Greydwarves, Skeletons, and Trolls.
The Black Forest is also the home of Valheim's second boss, The Elder.
|Copper Ore||Tin Ore|
|Core Wood||Surtling Core|
|Greydwarf Shaman||Greydwarf Brute|
The Swamp is a treacherous biome where even the terrain seems to stack the odds against you. This particular biome is host to monsters such as Draugrs, Wraiths, and Surtlings.
The Swamp is also the home of Valheim's third boss, Bonemass.
|Scrap Iron||Ancient Bark|
|Turnip Seed||Withered Bone|
The Mountain biome is a snowy region in Valheim where fearsome monsters such as Wolves, Drakes, and Stone Golems reside.
It is recommended that you stock up on Frost Resistance Mead first to manage the Freezing debuff that is ever-present up in the mountains.
The Mountain is also home of Valheim's fourth boss, Moder.
|Silver Ore||Dragon Egg|
The Plains are a vast and hostile biome that is mostly inhabited by Fulings, Fuling Shamans, and Fuling Berserkers. This biome is also home to the infamous Deathsquito!
The Plains are the home of Valheim's fifth boss, Yagluth.
|Cloudberries||Black Metal Scrap|
The Ocean, as the name suggests, is the large body of water that covers the vast majority of Valheim's map. These biomes can be explored by building Rafts, Karves, and Longships.
Those brave enough to sail through these Serpent-infested waters may spot a particular creature called a Leviathan. These island-looking creatures are currently the only source of Chitin in Valheim, without resorting to cheats. There are plans for future updates to expand this biome, comback soon for any updates!
The Deep North is a barren wasteland of rock and ice. Currently, there is nothing that inhabit these lands — not even trees.
Deep North Biome
The Mistlands are especially spooky biomes that seem to be perpetually covered in darkness.
Gigantic spider webs are spotted within this biome — which suggests the addition of an arachnid-type boss or monster once Valheim's fourth planned update arrives!
