Valheim – How To Solo The Sea Serpent!
Today we are going to show you Native Gamer how to take on a sea serpent when you’re soloing in valheim now the stuff we are going to show you today can also be used and a lot more easily if you are playing multiplayer so we are going to show you this and it’s like the most difficult way obviously doing it on your own but if you’re playing with friends this will work too and you can just have a bit of an easier time when it comes to actually killing it.
First thing you want to do is make yourself up a harpoon now the harpoon requires some certain materials which we are going to show you how to get including the chaitin right here titan chitin whatever that is you need 30 of that anyway you also need eight of the fine wood to get fine wood you need to make a bronze axe and chop down either oak or birch trees if you don’t know how to get bronze.
To get kite in the first thing you need to do is be able to make yourself up a boat and you can do this with a raft the only problem with using a raft is that it is a little bit more difficult to get to where you need to get to because you need to find an island in the middle of the ocean we are going to show you how to do this so that’s the recipe for a raft right there with the 20 wood six leather scraps and six resin if you want to make a carve boat instead you’ll need the 30 final wood which you’ve already touched on you’ll also need some bronze nails so again if you need to know how to get bronze check out my guide on Native Gamer in the description and you’ll need 10 deer hides so it’s not too difficult to get depends what stage of the game you’re at but we highly recommend doing that because lowering the Valheim sea serpent Native Gamer in is going to be much easier when you’re in a car as opposed to on a raft.
Head to an ocean
You need to do is head to an ocean so you can open up your map and find the nearest ocean you can see over here is where i’ve been doing my boating from so we’re going to head over that right now how to find what’s called a kraken which is where you’re going to get the materials to make the abyssal harpoon using the chitin and we’ll have a look at how we do that one important thing we forgot to mention do make sure you take a pickaxe with you in order to harvest the abyssal barnacles we believe you do need a bronze pickaxe or better to harvest them.
Those krakens we was saying about and you can see here it does just look like a normal landmass but you see the little barnacle things on top they’re a bit of a giveaway as to the fact that this is not a normal landmass so what we’re going to do is get right up close to this sail our boat here you know it’s hard with these boats you’re much always going to crash into it a little bit there we go as long as it stays somewhere nearby get the sail up already so now what we’re going to do is stop using this and see if we can get onto this island obviously make sure your boat is nearby because you may need to jump back on that later.
Now what you’re do is not punch them get your pickaxe and just start hacking away at them as you would do with any normal mining project again keep an eye on your boat that is floating nearby now sooner or later when you stood on this thing this guy is going to start moving now when he starts to move you need to start moving too because he’s about to drop down into the ocean and you do not want to be on him when that happens so what you want to do is what we are doing here harvest a load of these and we are going to harvest as many as we can and then when he starts to move what to do at that point he’s starting to move as you can see here so now we want to jump into the ocean we just need a little bit of stamina before we do can we jump straight into the boat no we missed it so now you need to get round to the ladder on the boat which actually must have been around the other side so we’re go around there.
We’re try not to die as soon as we hit that ladder we can hit e when we get close enough to it there we go get on the rudder and get the heck out of here as quickly as we can so we are going to try and get away from this thing but you should now be safe once you’re back in the ocean he’s not going to attack you he’s just going to sort of dive down and cause some waves it gets a bit scary you can see right here especially when there’s a storm going on but this is what you will need to do so once you have your 30 kites in what you can do is make yourself up an abyssal harpoon which we’re going to craft up right now you’ll see you can also make an abyssal razor actually should have got that while it was still there but there we go abyssal razors are a really really strong knife that you can make reasonably early game once you get yourself some chitin so if you’re looking for a good knife then we highly recommend you check that one out as well that will require an extra 20 chitin and some more fine wooden leather as you see there anyway we now have ourselves a harpoon look at this bad boy so now we are going to go out and hunt for a sea serpent step one is complete getting a harpoon.
Find a sea serpent so let’s go see how we do that so we are heading back over to my boat to go out in search of a serpent and it’s both exciting and scary to be honest but to that end do make sure you have certain things with you the first of all being a good range of food whatever the best food you have available to you at whatever stage the game you’re at is highly recommended it will give you that extra stamina buff that’s going to come in handy for sure particularly if you end up in the water at some stage which could happen we’re going to try to avoid that as you’ll see later on in the video but you know it’s always best to be prepared the other thing that’s kind of useful to have as well is some weapons right because obviously what we’re going to do is essentially harpoon the sea serpent bring it onto land and then kill it and that’s how we’re going to kind of farm it and get stuff from it because if you kill it in the ocean some of the stuff will sink and we’ll go through that in a second as well so do you make sure you’ve got that sort of stuff on you it’s never a bad idea to have obviously like some good you know weapons and and a shield and that sort of thing and even the bow for the range weapon and that sort of thing as well so just make sure you do gear up a little bit first and take the best armor as well that you have available to you.
So we are back at our boat it’s a lovely sunny day the ocean nice and calm so we are hoping this is a bit of a you know a bit of a good omen hopefully right to say that and now next we’re attacking us just as we mentioned it’d be in a good omen maybe not so much we just want to get in my boat and get away from here really let’s go let’s get away from these things so as we said we was hoping it was a good opening that we’re going to now go out and find ourselves a sea serpent and not have too much trouble so how we going to go about that well we do need to head off into the ocean so it says ocean you know buy them in the top right of our screen rather than right now it’s still saying meadows because we’re too close to the shore that being said we don’t want to venture too far away from any land the reason being is that the essentially what we’re going to do we’re going to harpoon this guy and then ride our boat back to land.
The wind direction right now is not great for us we’d rather have the wind against us right now hopefully it will change direction because when we’re heading back towards land we are going to hightail it towards land we need to get there quickly now to that end in terms of the land you’re going to bring this thing back to bear in mind you’re going to be fighting it here’s one right now we are going to come on to that again later this is good because it’s so close to land so what we want to do is just get away here slow down the boat a little bit but we’re still heading towards land all right so now at this point press e to get away from there have our harpoon selected and can we harpoon this thing yes we can it comes up in chat there to say it’s been harpooned so all right let’s see this is against us so we’ve got it harpooned it’s going to attack our boat and unfortunately as we said because we’ve got the wind against us this is not ideal he’s going to take our boat please don’t kill the boat my goodness all right so hopefully we can just get it back towards land and let’s see how this goes we this actually although we know how to do this right this is the first time i’ve ever done it.
We scared but it is also very exciting as well we’re close to land now we don’t know how damaged our boat is but we are close all right so we press e to stand up here we’re sprint here and get up onto land so we want to bring it up on onto land so we just keep walking up with it like this and the harpoon will tighten and it will come do not let the harpoon get too tight if you do the rope will break now if that happens you can just simply re-harpoon it it’s not like the end of the world or anything don’t stress too much but just try you know it’s just to be a little bit helpful if you don’t do that so we’re not really sprinting with it we’re just walking with it right now and we want to get him as far away from the ocean as we can my goodness his tails up there because as you’ll see in a second he’s try to get back to land so what we are do now is select my axe and run at him and the harpoon’s been released and there he is he’s running back towards the the good old c because that’s where he wants to be and so when he gets close to the sea we get the harpoon selected again re-harpoon him hopefully the line broke come back my goodness he’s going to stay in here because he’s going to want to fight us but can we harpoon this we think we need there we go there we go there we go so in terms of like where you bring him on to land this this is actually something we was going to say you don’t ideally want it to be near my goodness he’s escaped ideally.
You don’t want to be too near to a hill as you see here the hill makes it a little bit difficult right because when we’re trying to get him we have to pull him up hill whereas if it was flat we could get him a lot more onto the land all right let’s harpoon this again bring it back up so you just repeat this process the other thing to think about is if you were to do this in like a swamp then you’d have to fight all the swamp creatures as well as the sea serpent that could be a little bit difficult so again you may not want to do this probably preferable if you bring it back into a meadows like this we are going to keep repeating this process fighting off these necks and balls and things here as well in the meantime as well as fighting the serpent and then what happens when we actually kill it but you you get the idea we’re just going to repeat this whole process so you’ll notice when you’re harpooning this guy and you’re running around with him if you sprint you’ll still lose stamina.
If you are just walking around you won’t regain any stamina you see my stamina is only going to go down so what you want to do is bear that in mind and try and be on full stamina when you harpoon him so that once he’s up on land here you’re able to actually kill him let’s see we get our axe selected here and come on we thought he’s kill him let’s go there we go we did kill him in this go so here’s all this drops no no no all right we think we got most of the stuff there we go all right so we didn’t want anything to like fall because some of his drops will sink unfortunately so let’s just make sure we’ve got everything here here we go scales those are the ones that sink and the meat will float so we’ve got serpent scales and we’ve got some serpent meat those are the drops you will get from this and the scales because they sink means if you kill him when he’s in the middle of the ocean.
