This is a guide to taming boars and other animals in Valheim. Read on more to find out how to do it and what the benefits are to taming!
List of Contents
First off, build a pen. The best material would be roundpole fences so that you can jump past them. It's also advisable that you build it far away from campfires as they seem to be afraid of fire. Make sure the pen has an opening for you to enter and lure the boar through.
Find a boar and allow it to aggro onto you. Make sure you don't have a torch equipped because they may be afraid of fire. It's best to find boars closer to the pen because you have to allow it to chase you back to your pen. Once the boar is deep in your pen, close the pen with fences and jump out of it.
Throw food into the pen. Boars eat mushrooms and berries. Eventually, when you're a distance away, the boar will eat food. You will know it's eating when yellow hearts pop up above its head. Eventually, it will get tamed.
You can check its progress by aiming at it, and you will see the percentage until it gets tamed.
Once you finished taming the boar, you'll get a notification saying
Boar loves you.

If you have two boars, they can breed with each other and produce more boars. Eventually, you'll have enough boars to have a reliable source of meat and leather scraps without hunting.
