Valheim: How to craft the Draugr Fang, the best bow in the game

You’ll learn the recipe for the Draugr Fang bow once you’ve collected the following materials and your forge is at least level 2:

  • 20x silver
  • 10x ancient bark
  • 2x deer hide
  • 10x guck

You can hunt deer in the Meadows for deer hide. In fact, it’s something you’ll be doing when you’re collecting stuff for your starter gear. As for ancient bark, this type of wood is found in the Swamp biome. Just chop them down using an iron axe (20x iron, 2x leather scraps, and 4x wood). Likewise, guck can be found growing on these trees; they’re the green sacs on trunks and branches (seen in the image below). You’ll still need axe or pickaxe for these. But, you might have to set a Workshop down to build a few ladders just to reach guck sacs that are higher up.

As for silver, the metal is found in the Mountains biome. You’ll need to defeat Bonemass for the Wishbone accessory so you can discover silver deposits in the region.
