  • It offers an expansive map with a lot of items and materials that players could use
  • For those looking for ways to tinker with silver, this guide could come in handy

Silver is a precious and rare resource only available in the hardest spots of "Valheim." Players can use silver to forge great tools and excellent equipment like the Wolf Armor. In this guide, players learn how to obtain this rare resource, find abundant deposits, and convert silver ores into bars.

Where And How To Find Silver in "Valheim"

Players can find Silver in the Mountain Biome using a Wishbone. To find this rare resource, players must first summon and defeat the Swamp Biome's boss Bonemass, who drops the Wishbone. For those who already have a Wishbone, all they have to do is just equip it. 

Each time players pass through a silver deposit underneath them, they will hear a sound and see a green glow. These hints suggest that players should take out their tools and begin digging until they see the ore. To mine the silver easily, players should use the Pickaxe.

How To Convert Silver Ore to Bars

The only way to convert silver ores into bars in "Valheim" is by smelting. Players mine silver in its raw form or as silver ore. To make silver bars, players need to build a smelter, which can be created with five Surtling Cores and 20 Stones. The smelter must be properly positioned near a workbench and filled with coal to fire it up.
