Haldor is a secret merchant found in Valheim. He happens to sell a lot of wares, including the Megingjord belt which increases your carrying capacity. However, you do need to amass a lot of coins first. Here’s our guide to help you out.
Note: Valheim is currently an Early Access title. As such, mechanics and content may change in due course. For more information, check out our Valheim guides and features hub.
Valheim: Finding Haldor, getting the Megingjord, and amassing coins
Haldor can be found somewhere in Valheim‘s Black Forest biome. However, because of procedural generation and the map seed that you have, it might take you a while to find him. A little hint you’d get is that, if you’re ever close to his location, an icon of an item bag would appear on the map. That’s about it.
Assuming that you do stumble upon Haldor’s location, make sure that you plop down a portal if you already have the requirements to build one. This would save you a lot of time when traveling back and forth your main base.
Anyway, Haldor sells the following wares in exchange for coins:
- Yule Hat (100) – It’s a festive hat.
- Dverger Circlet (620) – A helmet that also acts as a light source. It’s helpful when you’re doing some dungeon delving in Burial Chambers.
- Megingjord (950) – It’s worth all these coins since it increases your carry weight from 300 to 450. As of now, this is the only way to increase your carry weight limit in Valheim.
- Fishing Rod (350) – This allows you to catch fish in bodies of water.
- Fishing Bait x50 (10) – You’ll need some bait to lure fish.
Your best bet is to save your coins until you’re able to acquire the Megingjord. This becomes very helpful especially when you’re running around with a lot of materials.
As for the coins themselves, you can find them from the following sources:
- Trolls – These gigantic monsters drop coins.
- Chests – Those found in dungeons and abandoned buildings can sometimes have coins.
- Gems – Dungeons such as the Burial Chambers, as well as troll caves, can have various gemstones (i.e., ruby and amber). You can sell these to Haldor for some coins.
