Where to find and how to use bukeberries in Valheim

I wouldn't eat these berries if I was you.

To get bukeberries in Valheim, you will need to farm grey dwarf shamans and brutes. Both enemy types drop bukeberries upon death, but shamans seem to drop them more often than the brutes.

Because of that, it's highly recommended to farm shamans over the brutes. You can find the brutes and shamans spawning in the Black forest biome, they can also spawn in other biomes, but they are more frequently found in the Black forest.

We recommend using fire arrows and your strongest bows—the reason why is that all grey dwarfs are weak to both range and fire damage. Having decent armor would also be a good idea, as swarms of grey dwarfs often spawn near shamans in the game.

Once you get the bukeberries they can be used as a food item but not in the way you may think. In short, you can use bukeberries as a sort of palate cleanser, as they will remove all active food effects you have on your character.

Because of this, it's recommended to use them to remove effects when you want to switch to another food effect. Beyond this, you won't want to use bukeberries as they will make your character sick and cause them to throw up.
