To Craft the Iron Buckler you need the following materials:

  • 10 Iron
  • 4 Ancient Bark

Once you have the above materials, go back to your forge. Open the forge and click craft on the Iron Buckler. By doing this you will get the Iron Buckler.

Remember that you will have to upgrade your forge to level 2. A level 2 Forge can craft Iron gears hence it is important if you want the Iron Buckler.

You can obtain Iron by smelting Scrap Iron. It will take 30 seconds to smelt one Iron and will use Coal as fuel. These Scrap Iron can be mined from the Muddy scrap piles found in the Sunken Crypts in the Swamp biome.

To acquire Ancient Bark you will need to chop down the Ancient Trees. These trees will either give you Ancient Bark or Wood when chopped down. It is highly recommended to use a stone ax or an ax above it to chop these woods.

Both of these items can be obtained in a single visit to the Swamp biome. This is nice as it is like killing two birds with one stone. You can stock up on both of these necessities in one trip.

That sums up this guide on how to get the Iron Buckler in Valheim. If you like this game be sure to check out our other guide on how to make crystal walls in Valheim.
