How To Find Black Metal

The Plains is one of the most dangerous biomes in Valheim so, keep this in mind when you plan to start harvesting Black Metal. You should see plenty of enemies wandering about, in particular, we want to find Fuling. These creatures can be located in Fuling Villages and look like goblins, when killed they will drop at least one Black Metal Scrap. These enemies are extremely hostile and as you get closer to their villages you'll start being attacked, so it's important to make sure you're as prepared as possible in regards to armour and weapons. Try to lure a few out at a time and gradually pick them off.
