Valheim Bow: How to Make a Bow?

It will be useful in a lot of items including Leather helmet, Longship and Bronze Spear. You can check out all Valheim Crafting recipes for tools, weapons, items and armor right here.

There’s a certain trick you can use to get Fine Wood fast and that’s to use a Troll that has a weapon with him. Get to a place where you have a lot of Finewood trees and make the Troll attack in your direction. But remember to dodge the attack and this will make him attack the tree instead. Keep doing this until you have a lot of Fine Wood and that’s how to farm Fine Wood in Valheim easily, especially in the early game section.
