How to Craft Hot Tub in Valheim

  • 20 Wood
  • 6 Tar
  • 8 Stone
  • 10 Iron

For the iron, you need to go to the Swamp Crypts. The key to this area will not become available until you have killed the Elder. Once inside, destroy the dirty piles and take them back to your forge for breaking down.

One that may prove harder to find is the tar. To get this, you need to travel to the pits based in the Plains. Tar pits will contain creatures called growths. Be careful as they have a ranged attack that can poison and slow.

Your other items are quite standard. For stone, you need a pickaxe to mine it in most places. Wood can be taken from trees. Once you have all the items, you can begin crafting your hot tub.

How to Use Hot Tube in Valheim

If you are wondering how the hot tub works in Valheim, it is not as simple as you think. You cannot just set it and jump in when you wish. You can also not place it in any place you fancy.

Think of the hot tub as a fire. You need to place wood in the furnace at the back to use it. This will create smoke, which can fill your home if not placed correctly. Make sure the hot tub has an outlet for the smoke while keeping it in the home. This lets you claim your bonus to your resting buff.
