Building can be confusing at first but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. This guide on How To Build In Valheim will tell you everything you need to know to get started with building your base by constructing various workbenches, campfires, and other vital areas you’ll need to expand.
The first thing you need to do is harvest enough materials to build a Hammer. You will need some Wood and some Stone. You can find Wood by getting an Axe and chopping down trees, or you can punch the smaller, thinner trees for less wood. Once you have all of the materials, construct a hammer and put it onto your hotbar. Then equip your character with the Hammer so that it is selected as the primary weapon.
