Valheim: How To Tame Boar And Breed Them

Getting fed up foraging and hunting all the time?

Make it a little easier by setting up a meat farm!

Boars are a great source of meat and leather scraps which can be used in recipes.

Here's how to tame and breed boars!

How To Tame Boar

Taming boar in Valheim can be fairly easy depending on how you go about it.

You'll need to feed them foraged food from the forest.

This includes berries, mushrooms, and carrots.

To throw them on the group select them in your inventory and drag it out.

If you want to choose how many to throw then press shift when clicking on the stack.

Technically you can tame boar in the wild though this can result in them attacking you.

The best way to do it is by making some fencing using the workbench, then you can trap them.

Create the pen you wish to keep them in, don't make it too small as they will breed.

Be sure to include a gate somewhere so you can get in and out quickly.

Approach a boar to gain aggro, they'll begin chasing you.

Lead them to the pen and close the gate, trapping them.

Now you can throw in the food for the boars.

As they eat, hearts will appear above their heads, if you get close to them it should indicate what percentage they are tamed.

To breed them just keep multiple in the pen and they will do so naturally.

You will have to feed them to keep them alive.

A boar farm is a great thing to set up as soon as possible, not only for leather scraps but meat too!

Valheim is the next Viking title to take Steam by storm, there are plenty of plans for the future with the 2021 roadmap. You can even set up a dedicated server and play with your friends in coop! If bosses interest you, there's already four in the game Eikthyr, the Elder, Bonemass and Modor, you'll require plenty of items along the way like the Swamp Key.
