In this page of the Valheim game guide you will learn how to build a Windmill and how to use it.
The Windmill in Valheim is used to grind barley grains and produce barley flour, which is required to create certain types of food and bread.
How to build a windmill?
Before you can build a windmill, you will first have to craft an artisan table and thus you will have to defeat one of Valheim's bosses, Moder, to obtain the necessary dragon tears.
You will need the following materials to build the windmill:
- 20 pieces of stone;
- 30 pieces of wood;
- 30 iron nails.
How to use the windmill?
A windmill is obviously wind-powered and it will only work when its arms are set in motion. This means that windy weather will significantly increase barley flour production. It is also a good idea to place several windmills in various locations to maximize production.
On the side of the windmill you will find a hole for barley - it can hold up to 50 bundles. If you don't know how to obtain barley, we explain it on a separate page of our guide.
Once the windmill starts turning, it will grind grains into barley flour - you can obtain it from the spot pictured in the image above.
You can use barley flour to prepare a number of food items in the cauldron:
- Blood pudding;
- Fish wraps;
- Lox meat pie.
