Obtaining Black Cores in Valheim is a chore. The reason is that you have to farm them in dangerous dungeons called Infested Mines. You can usually find Black Cores in hidden rooms in the Infested Mines dungeon. You should note that there are at least two cores per mine, with a maximum of six Black Cores per run.

  • Black Forge — Allows you to craft Mistlands-grade armor, weapon, and the durable Dvergr lantern.
    • 14x Black Marble
    • 10x Yggdrasil Wood
    • 5x Black Core
    • 5x Iron
    • 5x Copper

    • 25x Yggdrasil Wood
    • 10x Black Metal
    • 10x Black Marble
    • 5x Black Core
    • 15x Refined Eitr

These structures are important if you want to scale alongside the difficult enemies in this update. Getting all of these structures is the key to surviving in the new Mistlands update in Valheim. In total, you need about 15 Black Cores to craft all of these structures. If we take the average of four Black Cores per run, you’ll have enough resources available in about three to four runs.
