How to Get Stones

Pick Stones off the Ground

Stones can be picked from the ground almost anywhere in the Valheim.

Use a Pickaxe

Things become more efficient once you craft a pickaxe. Look for any rock formations protruding off the ground and hit them with it.

Chipping away at these rock formations will produce stones until they completely disappear.

The Antler Pickaxe, in particular, can be crafted early-on in the game after you defeat the first boss, Eikthyr.

Bait Stone Golems

Later in the game, you can bait and evade the attacks of the Stone Golem in the Mountains Biome. The Stone Golem is able to destroy the terrain and other rock formations to make farming stone faster.

Reach Bedrock for Unlimited Stone

Stone Farm Quarry

To have an unlimited supply of Stones, dig deep until you hit bedrock. You will know you have reached bedrock when can't dig further anymore.

Continue hitting the ground and it will still produce stones! We suggest creating a mini-base with roof and fire just so you could get both Rested and Sheltered bonus!
