How to Find a Trader in Valheim

Once you find items tagged with Valuable , you may have the idea to sell those items, and there’s a merchant in Valheim that you can definitely trade. The main currency used is coins and these gems are only to be sold to the merchant to get more coins. This guide will show you how to find the merchant in Valheim and the items that can be traded.

Exploring Other Islands – Merchant Location

Playing on 3 different servers or seeds, the trader never spawned on the main island. You need to build a raft or a Karve to explore the surrounding islands near you. As you explore different islands, the merchant icon will appear on the map even before you explore parts of the islands.

They are usually found in the Black Forest biome, on islands with endless waves of Gridwarves roaming. You can clear Greydwarf Spawners for Ancient Seeds to fight the Elder. The good news is that the merchant’s position is protected by runes that prevent enemies from attacking within the area.

It’s a good idea to build a base on this island and make sure you build it away from the Black Forest biome. It is enough to create a portal on this base so that you can easily sell and buy items.

What Is The Trader Selling?

Fish Food (50 pieces)15Common Dvergr fish food. Fishing rod sold separately

The items sold by the trader are all optional, but give a huge boost in exploring dungeons, fights, or a new food source. If you’re having trouble finding the third piece of meat as a buff, you can fish for raw fish so you have a combination of raw meat, necktail and raw fish for maximum health with easily arable resources.

The Dverger Circlet is used as a light source for Surtling Cores to enter delves and dungeons. Megingjord is a big damage buff for combat, but her biggest feature is adding 150 more weights to your inventory. This makes Megingjord a priority if you have 950 coins idle.

Ymir Flesh is used to craft stronger weapons like Frostner. Required in large quantities, but not required for quality upgrades on weapons that need them. Once you collect enough resources in the mountain biome (silver ores), they will be available. Other than that, Megingjord will be much more helpful at the beginning and towards the end.

How Can You Sell Your Items?

How to Find a Trader in Valheim

When talking to the trader Haldor, simply press the lower right button to sell the marketable items you own. Any item tagged as Valuable is only used to trade with merchants for more coins. Items such as rubies, amber, and pearls are sold to the merchant for coins, and you can find them inside the chests of random extraterrestrial outposts or dungeons.

Just spam the sell button because you don’t have the option to choose it but basically, all those valuables need to be sold already.


All of these items are complementary and will consistently update other items as new information emerges. The biggest boost you can get is having the ability to raise raw fish and increase your carrying capacity by 150 weights from Megingjord. The overall stamina, maximum health, and health regen bonus are the next step to help you improve your battle in progression.
