If you want to farm yourself some Ancient Seeds, there are two main methods. Firstly, the larger Dwarf enemies will sometimes drop them, but it’s very rare. The main source is from the nests. When you’re running through the Black Forest biome you will sometimes see a dead tree surrounded by purple smoke. This is a nest for the enemies, they spawn from here and spread out into the surrounding forest area. You need to destroy the nest in order to harvest an Ancient Seed. You will need three Ancient Seeds to summon the boss. You can use metal tools to break it relatively quickly. A bronze hatchet is enough to take it down in 2-3 swings.

  • Find the location of the 2nd boss
  • Search the Black Forest Biome for purple mist surrounding dead trees
  • Break the nest to stop the enemies spawning and loot the Ancient Seed
  • Put 3 Ancient Seeds onto the Alter to sacrifice them and bring the boss out
