With the exception of Yellow Mushrooms, items that spawn inside dungeons do not respawn.

Do Enemies Respawn?

Valheim - Greydwarves.png
Trolls and any other enemy present across the Biomes of Valheim can respawn after a specific number of in-game days.

Enemies inside dungeons on the other hand do not respawn naturally. It is possible, however, for dungeons to have respawnable enemies under two conditions:

  • The dungeon has an Enemy Spawner inside.
  • The Enemy Spawner does not get destroyed.

Enemy Spawners are special objects in Valheim that spawn specific monsters at a regular rate. These are only present in specific dungeons or biomes and can be destroyed.

Enemy Spawner: Body Piles

Body Piles are typically found in Swamps, Mountains, and Sunken Crypts. Although rare, it is also possible to see them at the Meadows biome within Draugr Villages. As the name suggests, Body Piles can be distinguished by the sound of flies surrounding a mound of mangled corpses.

This particular Enemy Spawner spawns the following enemies:

Draugr Draugr Elite

Enemy Spawner: Evil Bone Piles

Evil Bone Piles are found within Black Forest, Swamps, Mountains, and Burial Chambers. These can be distinguished by the black and purple smoke eminating from a pile of bones.

This particular Enemy Spawner spawns Skeletons at a regular rate.

Enemy Spawner: Greydwarf Nests
