How to craft a Wisp Fountain in Valheim

To craft a Wisp Fountain, you must first gather 10 Stone resources and one Torn Spirit. Here's where you can find all of the resources to make a Wisp Fountain listed below:

  • Where to find Stone - You probably already know how to get this resource, but for those new to Valheim, you can get stone by smacking rocks with at least an Antler Pickaxe.
  • Where to find a Torn Spirit - You can find the strange resource called Torn Spirits by defeating Yagluth in the Plains biome. As of the Mistlands update, Yagluth drops at least one Torn Spirit on death.

How to use a Wisp Fountain in Valheim 

The main idea behind using Wisp Fountains in Valheim is to get a Wisp. Wisps are non-hostile creatures that players can pick up and add to their inventories. Wisps will also appear only at night in varying numbers, so you must wait for nighttime in Valheim before getting a Wisp.

The most Wisps we saw at night was around three wisps. You can later use any Wisps you grab to craft items that help you see better in the Mistlands biome and remove the fog surrounding it. Here's how to craft these items and what they are in Valheim:

  • How to craft a Wisp Torch - You can craft a Wisp Torch after finding your first Wisp by placing the Wisp Fountain at night. To craft a Wisp Torch, you need one Yggdrasil Wood and one Wisp per construction. 
  • How to craft a Wisp Light - To make a Wisp Light, you need one Silver and one Wisp per item.
  • How to get a Wisp - To get a Wisp, you must wait for night time in Valheim.

How to use a Wisp Lights and Wisp Torches in Valheim

You can use Wisp Lights by equipping them to your hot bar by clicking on them. Equipping the Wisp Lights will cause a Wisp to follow you around, clearing any Fog you approach in the Mistlands biome. However, Wisp Lights only temporarily remove the fog. Your best bet to permanently remove fog is to place a Wisp Torch, as they will remove any fog near it, but only on the ground level. To clear the mist higher up in the Mistlands biome, you must build tall structures and place torches on top of them.
