Valheim: Defeat and Summon All the Bosses

Valheim is not your run of the mill hunting and crafting simulator. You need to defeat and overcome a variety of bosses as well.

The survival RPG game that’s all the rage right now, Valheim, has no shortage of creatures to defeat and conquer. The world of Valheim has five bosses, each wielding strong magic and power. You are tasked with taking each of them and it is not going to be an easy task. Here’s how you can summon and conquer each and every one of them.

1. Eikthyr Boss in Valheim

Location – Meadows Biome

Summon – Sacrifice two deer trophies at the altar

Recommended Gear – Leather Armor and Bow

The first boss Eikthyr is located right in the starting biome. The large stag has multiple attacks. He can shoot lightning from afar, initiate a lightning storm area up close and can also perform melee attacks.

Defeating Eikthyr in Valheim is easy as long as you know when to strike and when to stay away. Whenever Eikthyr backs up to send a lightning bolt or backs up with a pause to send a lightning bubble, move to the side to stay safe and rush in for an attack after it.

2. Elder Boss in Valheim

Location – The Black Forest

Summon – Sacrifice three Ancient Seeds at the altar

Recommended Gear – Bow and Arrow, Health Potions

Valheim’s second boss, Elder, is found in the Black forest and is just a large groot. Even though Elder does not carry any weapons, he attacks by stomping, shooting roots and vines as ranged weapons so watch out.

To take on Elder and win, the best way is to use ranged weapons like the bow and arrow. Carry enough health potions and start shooting. Take plenty of cover and use fire arrows to inflict maximum damage.

3. Bonemass Boss in Valheim

Location – Swamp Biome

Summon – Sacrifice 10 Withered Bones at the Altar

Recommended Gear – Maces or Hammers

Use the withered bones to summon Valheims third boss called Bonemass – one of the most resistant bosses in Valheim. Arrows are pretty much ineffective against Bonemass. Get close to him and he will do melee damage and while at range he can release toxins. Bonemass can also summon other skeletons and blobs during the fight so you gotta take them down too.

The name of the game to defeat Bonemass is to use blunt attacks. Stay close enough with good armor and weapons like maces and hammers to inflict damage. Leave your bow and arrow for this as they are pretty useless against Bonemass.

4. Moder Boss in Valheim

Location – Mountain Biome

Summon – Sacrifice Three Dragon Eggs at its Altar

Recommended Gear – Wolf Armor, Bow and Arrow

Looking all majestic like a final boss should, Moder is Wyvern (or a dragon) and is the fourth boss in Valheim. Moder can be summoned at the top of mountain in the Mountain Biome. She can melee attack with her front claws, blizzard breath to slow you down and even shoot projectiles for ranged attacks.

Defeating Moder is a two step process. First you need to survive in the Mountain biome, so use the wolf armour. For the second step and Moder herself, you need to be quick at dodging. Dodge when she strikes and hit her with your best arrow to inflict damage.

5. Yagluth Boss in Valheim

Location – Plains Biome

Summon – acrifice Five Fuling Totems at Its Altar

Recommended Gear – Armor, Ranged and Melee Weapons, Health Potions

The fifth and the final boss in Valheim is the crown wearing skeleton called Yagluth. Even though Yagluth only crawls as he has no lower body, don’t let that catch you off guard. He still has powerful attacks. He can attack in closeby areas, call in a meteor strike and even a flamethrower-like ranged attack.

Being an end game boss, you should be ready with the best gear and armour and plenty of health potions. Use his slow movement to your advantage, dodge when he gets ready while inflicting damage when he is not attacking. Ranged weapons like the bow is always the go to weapon but you can get in some melee damage as well.
