Valheim - How to get deer hide.png
Deer Hides are obtained from deer, which are abundant in the Meadows biome.

While it is possible to hunt deer with melee weapons, it is recommended early on that you hunt them with a bow instead. Deer are easily spooked and can run away at high speeds whenever you approach them.

    • Soap most likely originated from when people cooked food on a spit and the fat dripped on to the white ash in the fire and when combined with water it made a lather. Adding soap could introduce hygiene factors into the game. They could introduce it similar to how the hunger works, like, the better your hygiene, the more health/stamina you can gain. Making soap could consist of cooking meat over the spit, the fat mixing with ash and then mixing it with water could give you soap.
