This guide will let you know how to find the COPPER to Mine in Valheim. Go through the guide and follow the simple steps to do so.
You will need to go to the black forest, and you will see a lot of stones there. You have to find rocks that are much brighter or shinier than other stones. When you get close to them, you will find copper deposits, as shown in the image below.
These are the huge copper nodes, and it is tough to break through them; it requires 4 pickaxe repairs before you get through these nodes. So you will need to start mining with a pickaxe until you get some copper ore.
You need to make sure not to be in the Black forest at night because you will attract some monsters when you make noise during mining. You must have the boat with you to easily go from there with full stacks of copper ore in that boat. Then go back to your base, put them in a smelter and mix the copper with tin in your forge; then you can easily craft bronze.
