How to craft a Eitr Refinery in Valheim

To craft a Eitr Refinery in Valheim, you must have 20 Black Marblefive Black Metal10 Yggdrasil Woodfive Black Cores, and three Sap. Here's where you can get all of these resources listed below:

  • Where to find Black Marble - You can find Black Marble in Valheim by mining Petrified Bones in the Mistlands biome. Various locations and structures may also reward Black Marble inside the Mistlands biome. Note: We highly recommend making a Black Metal Pickaxe as you need one to mine the Soft Tissue you need to make Refined Eitr.
  • Where to find Black Metal - You can find Black Metal in Valheim by traveling to the Plains biome and farming Fuling enemies. Fulings will drop Black Metal scrap that you can turn into Black Metal inside a Blast Furnace.
  • Where to find Yggdrasil Wood - To get Yggdrasil Wood in Valheim, you must travel to the Mistlands biome and chop down Yggdrasil shoots. You can find Yggdrasil shoots growing high near Ancient roots on rocks and mountains. 
  • Where to find Black Cores - To get Black Cores in Valheim, you must loot Infested Mines that you can find inside the Mistlands biome. We recommend getting your best weapons before heading inside Infested Mines, as they are infested with dangerous bugs. 
  • Where to find Sap - You can farm Sap by placing a Sap Extractor on a tree that gives a message that says the following: The ancient root is pulsating with energy. These trees will also glow bright green, so they are hard to miss.

How to use a Eitr Refinery in Valheim

After crafting a Eitr Refinery, you can use it to turn Sap into Refined Eitr. But before you can use the Eitr Refinery, you must gather a resource called Soft Tissue along with Sap. You will need to use both Sap and Soft Tissue to make Refined Eitr in the Refinery. Luckily, Soft Tissue is not hard to get, as all you have to do is mine the Petrified Skull heads in the Mistlands biome.
