How to Get the Wolf Cape in Valheim

To get the Wolf Cape in Valheim you’ll first need to kill wolves. Head to the mountainous regions of your world and start killing wolves. You will need the following resources to craft the cape itself:

  • 6 Wolf pelts
  • 4 Silver
  • 1 Wolf Trophy

Wolves can easily swarm you and overwhelm your defenses if you’re not careful. We recommend bringing a bow along with you, to pick off stragglers from afar at first. Bringing friends is also a good way to lower the risk. For more info on playing with friends, head here.
