This is part three of our Walkthrough and Progression Guide for Valheim. Read on to learn important tips and strategies to conquer the Swamp and its boss, Bonemass!
List of Contents
|1||Build a Cauldron and Fermenter in your Base|
|2||Stock up on Poison Resistance Mead|
|3||Explore the Swamp Biome|
|4||Gather Scrap Iron and Withered Bones from Sunken Crypts|
|5||Craft Iron Tools, Weapons, and Armor|
Start off by building these two crafting stations in your base!
Craft the Mead Base in the Cauldron
Place the Mead Base in the Fermenter
NEVER venture into the swamp without Poison Resistance Mead! Swamp monsters such as Blobs and Leeches deal very high poison damage with all of their attacks — Getting ambushed by these monsters almost always results in death if you aren't prepared.
Luckily, the ingredients for Poison Resistance Mead can be easily obtained in the Black Forest and Meadows biomes. Take the time to gather a good stock of this Mead and bring at least three with you when exploring the swamp.
The next biome you are going to need to explore to progress is the Swamp Biome. Here you will find new dangers lurking around in the muddy waters. There are new enemies like the Draugr's but also new materials. If you wish to face the next boss you will need to explore this new biome plenty!
Explore these crypts to collect Scrap Iron and Withered Bones from Muddy Scrap Piles and Chests inside. Always bring your Pickaxe with you because Muddy Scrap Piles can only be destroyed via Pickaxes!

List of Raids: How do Raids Work?
The Iron Sledge is an amazing AoE melee weapon that is flat out superior to a maxed out Stagbreaker. The only drawback is its expensive crafting and upgrade costs. Only consider crafting this weapon after clearing your more important objectives first!
Frost Arrows are the only type of arrows that are effective against Bonemass and can significantly decrease the difficulty of its boss fight. Crafting them, however, is incredibly dangerous and time consuming at this stage of the game.
Only do this if you feel like the reward outweighs the overall risk involved.
