Best ways to beat Seekers in Valheim

If you are having trouble beating Seekers, the best method is to use their elemental weakness to your advantage. One way to do this is to have a bow like the Draugr bow and combine it with arrows such as Frost, Fire, or a high-level equivalent. With a bow equipped, you need to fire into seekers and keep circling them to avoid getting surrounded.

Eventually, you will encounter groups, and bows are not great for fighting them. Luckily, weapons such as the Himmin afl deal high Lighting damage combined with high Pierce and Knockback. We recommend making this weapon using 10 Yggdrasil Wood, 15 Refined Eitr, five Silver, and two Mandibles, as it is one of the best weapons to use against groups.

Another way to best Seekers is to use one of the many new Eitr magic staffs, such as the Ember or Frost Staffs. Check the list below for the best weapons against Seekers in Valheim.

Best weapons for fighting Seekers in Valheim list

  • Himmin afl 
  • Frostner
  • Porcupine
  • Staff of Embers
  • Jotun bane
  • Staff of Frost
  • Mistwalker
  • Draugr Fang
