Attacks: The Ancient One has three attacks: a stomp with his feet at close range, a ranged attack with a vine in a straight line directed at the target player if no player is at close range, and a Root over a large area (raises his hand in air before that). These roots will persist for some time and deal damage if the player gets close to them. The roots can be attacked and destroyed.

Where to find: The Ancient One's summoning place is located in the Black Forest. Its location can be found by visiting the "Burial Chambers", where the runestone will indicate the exact location of the summon on the map.

How to Win: It is recommended to bring several health potions into battle to heal during a long fight with the Ancient One. Since the Ancient One is in the Black Forest, additional enemies can join the fight and significantly increase the difficulty.

The Ancient One does not disappear if players flee or everyone dies, and continues to chase players for a considerable distance.

What you can get: "Trophy: Ancient" (Elder Trophy) and "key to the crypt" (Swamp Key).

How to defeat and summon Bonemass - where to find withered bones

How to defeat and summon Bonemass - where to find withered bones

Description: Bone Mass is the third boss of Valheim. It's a big green creature.

Summoning Requirements: A Mass of Bones is summoned using ten Wither Bones found in swamp dungeons.

Attacks: Bone Mass can summon skeletons, slimes and draugr. May also spray poisonous clouds from which it is best to stay away.

Where to find: The skull altar to summon is located in the swamp.

How to Win: Bone Mass is weak to bludgeoning damage. Recommended weapons: Iron Mace, Wooden Club, and Stagbreaker.

Do not use bows and arrows other than to stop his health regeneration - this is extremely ineffective. One fully upgraded wooden club will outperform a bow with iron arrows.

Use Mead to resist poison. You can go through poison, just don't stay in it.

Use the Stagbreaker to fight off skeletons and slime when they are piled up. If you are low on health, it is better to move away so as not to fall under the influence of the poison, and calmly heal.

What you can get: "Wishbone" (Wishbone).

How to defeat and summon Moder (Moder)

How to defeat and summon Moder (Moder)

Description: Mouder is the fourth boss of Valheim. It is a large wyvern with black scales and white fur.

What you need to summon: Mauder can be summoned by obtaining three Dragon Eggs and placing them on the sacrificial altar in the Mountain biome. The dragon egg can be found in the nests in the mountains. Since the eggs themselves weigh 200, it will take several people or several visits to summon the boss.

Attacks: Mauder can fly, but he also occasionally lands on the ground. While in the air, Mouder will fire projectiles that transform into crystalline formations on impact. While on the ground, Mouder will either attack with claws or breathe cold from his mouth.

Any of Mouder's cold attacks will significantly slow your movement speed by 15 seconds, making you vulnerable to further attacks.

Where to find: The sacrificial altar is located in the Mountain biome. The altar is stone, round. There is a stone table inside. Behind him are three offering bowls, in which to place Dragon Eggs. The entire structure glows red and is decorated with black runes along the edges. They depict two wyverns as well as four human figures.

How to win: use the bow when Mouder is in the air or lands on the ground far from you. We dodge the shells. Mouder can sometimes growl, which is a great time to hit the boss a few times. Wolves and other forest creatures can interfere with you, it is better to get rid of them right away.

What you can get: "Moder Trophy" (Moder Trophy) and "dragon tear" (Dragon tear).
