In Valheim, the videogame developed by Iron Gate downloadable from Steam, is a truly vast open word and so full of dangers that it will often make you want to be a giant and stretch your legs as much as possible to shorten the distances. Luckily there is an option that will help you clear a lot of road, as long as you have the right material to fabricate the right structure. In this guide we will give you the information to be able to travel quickly and build a portal.
The following text may contain spoilers about Valheim, the latest work by Iron Gate AB and published by Coffee Stain Studios. We therefore advise you to continue carefully in order to avoid any major and minor spoilers, which could undermine your play experience.
What you need
The first thing to do will be to craft a bronze pickaxe, as you will need to collect precious wood. The materials needed to build the bronze tools are 20 pieces of fine wood, 10 Gray Eyes of the Dwarves, and 1 Surtling Core.
Where to find the material
You will be able to make the portal quite early in the game, and this will happen after meeting the first boss in the game. You will have to defeat Elkthyr, in fact, to gain access to the Black Forest from the raven. In this area there are some skeletal guards who protect the entrances to many small dungeons found throughout the area. You absolutely have to defeat them because they release the Surtling Core, essential for the construction of the portal.
How to travel fast
At this point you can build the gateway to the portal, and preferably you should place it near your settlement for convenience. But don't forget to consider where to place the exit portal as well. After creating the two portals, you can teleport from one to the other at your convenience.
It will not be possible to build an entrance near an area ruled by enemies. Also there are materials that cannot be teleported such as precious ones and some specific minerals. Anything that you cannot convey will be irretrievably removed from your inventory as you exit the conduit. The allowed resources are only the basic ones, such as wood.
That's all there is to know to build a portal within Valheim! If you need other help, we remind you that we have an entire section dedicated to guides always updated with all the titles of the moment.
