valheim Black Forest Biome Guide | list of enemies

These are the enemies you will find inside the Black Forest Biome in valheim:

gray dwarf shaman

Greydwarf Shamans are similar to the Greylings found in Meadows, but are much more powerful and can even heal themselves and other enemies around them with an AOE heal. They attack by swinging their claws and spitting a cone of poison at their target, so be sure to dodge any incoming attacks. They seem to only heal once you engage them, so try to burn them quickly.

gray dwarf

These energetic creatures are native to the Black Forest and will attack on sight. They look almost identical to graylings, but they are much larger and have bright blue eyes. Although they use a similar dash attack, they are much stronger than grayling, so be prepared for anything. They also hurl rocks at their target to deal minimal damage from afar.

gray dwarf brute

Brutes are much like shamans, but they have glowing red eyes and a dandelion growing on the top of their heads. They wield large clubs that do a lot of damage, so it’s best to dodge or block their attacks.


Trolls are extremely tall and hard to miss and can wield huge tree branches or fight you with their bare hands. They hit pretty hard, so it’s best to have a somewhat decent team up before taking them on. Although as they say, the bigger they are, the harder they fall.


Skeletons are relatively easy to fight, but they can come armed with a variety of different weapons such as a sword and shield, just a sword, or even a bow and arrows to attack their target. Although their damage is not great, they can hit multiple times in a row, which causes a good chunk of health to be lost. His attacks also push players back, creating distance between you and them. Skeletons take more damage from blunt weapons.

Who is the boss in the Black Forest biome?

valheim Black Forest biome locations

Here are the notable locations of the Black Forest Biome in Valheim:

Burial Chambers are almost like little dungeons that players can enter that contain treasure to find, enemies to kill, and chests to discover. This is also the place to find the glowing red stones that reveal the location of the Black Forest Boss. Various yellow mushrooms can be found within the chambers, as well as Skeletons, Skeleton Spawners, and Surtling Cores.

Gray Dwarf Spawn Camp

These things that look like purple flames are called spawners, and they do exactly that; spawn enemies. The ones around the Black Forest spawn the different types of Greydwarves, including shamans and brutes.

Screenshot of the Troll cave in Valheim

Troll caves are home to, you guessed it, trolls! These caves are randomly generated in the world, and once inside, you will find a very angry troll waiting for you. Some of the troll caves are larger than others and may have chests in them, so be sure to check each one you find. Trolls pack a big punch though, so be prepared for the worst.

Screenshot of the Altar of the Elders.

This is where you will try to defeat the Black Forest Boss; The old. The large tree-like creature that towers over the lands has quite a few terrifying dodge mechanisms, and can be spawned with three Ancient Seeds. There didn’t seem to be much else within the area around the altar, but it’s still a necessary place to visit in order to proceed to the next area.
