The pickaxe can only be obtained by successfully completing certain stages in Valheim. We explain how to make it. Like any good survival game, the deck will quickly become an indispensable element for players of Valheim. However, it cannot be crafted at the start of the adventure. This requires having successfully defeated a boss and having enough resources. If you don't know how to do it, we explain to you with precision the steps to follow to have a pickaxe in Valheim.

How to get the pickaxe in Valheim?

As we have just told you, you will have to beat a boss to get the plan from the pickaxe, but not just any. It is indeed necessary to overcome Eikthyr, which will not be very complicated. If you need help, we've put together a special guide for you. Once done, you will get the plan of the pickaxe, but also three hardwoods, an essential element for its production. Then you will need to collect 10 simple wood and go to your workbench to craft the pickaxe.

In short, here are the resources needed to craft a pickaxe in Valheim :
  • 1 hardwood
  • 10 simple woods
You are now ready to mine resources, in particular to craft stronger tools with iron, but also other minerals, to make armor or equipment in a material other than wood, which is not the most efficient on the long term.

You can repair your pickaxe at your workbench for free. Finally, note that it is possible to use it as a hoe to modify the environment. A particularly effective tool, in itself.
