Valheim – How to Reach the Bronze Stage

This is a quick guide showing you how to obtain bronze and progress.

Bronze Stage Guide


Obtaining bronze does not require much, all you need is to:

  1. Defeat the Eikthyr and make a bone antler pickaxe
  2. Travel to the black forest
  3. Find Tin (Usually near the black forest shore)
  4. Find a copper deposit (Usually includes more copper under the original copper deposit)
  5. Mine a good amount of both remember, one bronze ingot is two copper and one tin.
  6. You will need at least 5 surtling cores, can be found in burial chambers (5 for the forge and an optional extra 5 for the charcoal)
  7. A forge, built with a hammer when near a workbench with 4 stone, 4 coal, 10 wood, and 6 copper.

Finding Copper and Tin

Finding the copper and tin is a fairly easy concept if you know what you are looking for, here is a picture of each of them.



Making Bronze

You will need to explore burial chambers to find 5-10 (5 are required the other 5 are optional).

Burial chamber example:

After you have acquired the surtling cores, you need to make a furnace, a forge, and optionally a charcoal kiln.

You can make a forge with the following ingredients:

  • 4x Stone
  • 4x Coal
  • 10x Wood
  • 6x Copper

When you have made everything required, you need to place your charcoal on the right side of your furnace and the copper/tin ore on the left side. Each ore uses 2 charcoal to smelt. When you are done smelting, take your copper and tin over to the forge and make bronze ingots. Finally, make whatever you think is necessary for progression!

I love two things in life, games and sports. Although sports were my earliest interest, it was video games that got me completely addicted (in a good way). My first game was Crash Bandicoot (PS1) from the legendary studio Naughty Dog back in 1996. I turned my passion for gaming into a job back in 2019 when I transformed my geek blog (Re-actor) into the gaming website it is today.
