Valheim: How to Summon and Defeat The Game’s First Boss

Valheim first boss Eikthyr

Valheim, Iron Gate AB’s Viking-themed game, gives players the freedom to do pretty much everything, from crafting equipment and weapons of all kinds, from building settlements, boats, and much more. But the dangers lurk in every corner of its mystical mountains, lakes, and forests. We will now show you how to summon and kill Valheim’s first boss, the giant stag Eikthyr, and win his Trash Talking Trophy.

Before testing your might against the creature, the enemy will need to be summoned. For that, you will need two Deer Trophies, which can be acquired by killing Deer’s, but be aware, it’s an uncommon drop.

After finishing the hunt, will just have to find the mystical altar located in the meadows biome and make the offering.

Eikthyr makes use of a selection of melee attacks, a huge elemental AoE attack, and a ranged lightning strike to try to bring you down. But do not fear, being the game’s first boss, he can be easily slain by parring its attacks and taking advantage of its openings with fast hits, or by keepíng your distance and using the environment to your advantage.
