Do bosses despawn? Read more about this guide to find out if they do and find out more about how bosses work.
List of Contents
Bosses are strong solo enemies that you encounter all along the world of Valheim. They are the Forsaken, those you are tasked to kill by Odin.
Each boss drops something important that gives you access to higher level gear of the game, so its imperative that you beat them in order to progress.
|Boss||Drops||Gives Access To|
|Eiktyhr||Hard Antler||Copper and Tin Ores (via Pickaxe)|
|The Elder||Swamp Key||Iron Ores (in Swamp Crypts)|
|Bonemass||Wishbone||Silver (buried in mountains)|
|Moder||Dragon Tears||Higher Level Crafting Stations|
Unfortunately, bosses do not despawn once summoned. However, don't worry about running into them unprepared as they only spawn when summoned.
If you do however accidentally spawn them, you have no choice but to beat them, but they won't chase you til the ends of the earth so don't worry if they kill you.
To find out how to summon each boss, check our list of boss guides down below!

Bosses regenerate health over time once no player is in their vicinity. To know if you're in their vicinity, you should see the health bar in the center top of your screen.
Make sure to always have a bed or portal closeby to get back into the fight quickly, or if you're with friends, make sure at least one of you remains alive!
