Each boss in Valheim requires a specific item if you want to summon them. This guide on How To Summon The Second Boss In Valheim will tell you how you go about summoning the second boss in the game, including information on how to find the special item, Ancient Seeds.
If you have done much exploring in Valheim, you will likely have found several Ancient Seeds already. When you read the large stone near the boss, it tells you to “Burn their young”. This is in reference to the Dwarf-like enemies that litter the Black Forests. You need to get the seeds that birth their kind and then burn them to summon the boss. You’re burning tree babies.
How To Summon The Second Boss In Valheim
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
