Upgrading your workbench in Valheim allows you to unlock better recipes, which you’ll need in order to progress through the game. So, naturally, people are wondering how to upgrade their workbench. The fact of the matter is that the process is relatively simple, once you know what to do, unlock the right recipes and get the resources. In our Valheim How to Upgrade Workbench guide, we’ll show you exactly what you need to do.
How to Upgrade Valheim Workbench?
To upgrade your Workbench in Valheim, you have to build additional stuff next to it. You can do so three time, as we’ll explain that in more detail later. For now, here’s what you need to do to get the first upgrade. You need to start by building a workbench inside your home, which you’ve probably already done. Then, go ahead and find some Flint; it’s commonly found near water, such as around rivers, lakes, and the ocean biome.
When you first discover Flint, you should get the recipe for the Chopping Block. You’ll need ten Wood and ten Flint to make it, so go ahead and gather those resources. Build the Chopping Block right next to the Workbench in your home to upgrade it to Level 2. Well done! Now, you can upgrade it two more levels. How? Well, let’s take a look.
To upgrade your Valheim Worbench further, you need to unlock and build a Tanning Rack and an Adze. You get the recipe for the rack after you kill your first deer, which is not that big of a deal. As for the adze, it’s quite a bit more complicated; that recipe will become available after you make Bronze Nails and collect Fine Wood from Birch trees. Just remember that all these need to be constructed next to your home Workbench. After you do all this, you should have a Level 4 Workbench, which is the max level at the time of writing.
