Guide: Where to find a merchant in Valheim

As soon as you recover from your first adventures (and the first ten ridiculous deaths) in Valheim , you will surely start to arrange your residence and accumulate wealth. But there is only one problem: in the analogue of Purgatory for the Vikings, all NPCs are to some extent hostile, and it will not work to trade with the locals, as in the same Minecraft. With one exception.
This guide is dedicated to the search for that very exceptional character – Haldor the dwarf.

How to find a merchant in Valheim

Since each game world in Valheim is procedurally generated, the merchant will be located in different locations. So we cannot give a specific point on your map – you will have to look for it anew in each new world. And then how lucky – a cunning dwarf can be either a five-minute walk from you, or at a great distance.
However, it’s not all that hopeless: Haldor spawns according to certain rules. Therefore, if you are looking for a merchant, then keep in mind the following:
  1. The dwarf is always located in the Black Forest biome , and not far from bodies of water and rivers. The best strategy in this case is to walk along the coast .
  2. It’s easy to understand that you are on the right track – as soon as you and the merchant are separated by less than a kilometer, a mark in the form of a wallet with coins will appear on the map .

  1. Finding Haldor is easier at night as he lights a fire .
This is how a merchant’s caravan looks from a close up. Confusing it with anything else is difficult.

The game on the already explored and convenient map will help to facilitate the search. Considering that you can freely transfer characters between worlds, then this is the most convenient way to find Haldor and buy materials from him.

To play on such a map, create a new world in the main menu and enter a value in the “Grain” field .
