What are Meadows Biomes?

Starting Biome

The Meadows is always going to be the starting biome for any world. Because it is the starter biome, you will find all the resources you need to get started. There are also weaker and low level creatures that can be beaten with just a few tools. A more in-depth guide to starting out in Valheim can be found below!

Full of Resources to Get you Started

What are Meadows Biomes
The Meadows are beginner-friendly biomes that feature serene forests and evergreen landscapes. This is where players drop into after they create a server or jump into an existing server for the first time!

This particular biome is a great source of Raw Meat, Deer Hides, and Leather Scraps due to the abundance of Boars and Deer that roam almost every corner of the Meadows. Necks can also be hunted for their Neck Tails near bodies of water.

Queen Bees are used to build Beehives for your base and can also be obtained in the Meadows by destroying their original beehives inside abandoned structures and houses.

The Meadows is also home of Valheim's first boss, Eikthyr. Click the button below for more information:
