Haldor the Merchant is one of the strangest places in Valheim. This traveling merchant lets you sell valuables and buy unique and powerful works of art in return, but how do you find it?
It is difficult for some players to find merchants in Walheim. Like The Elder, the second boss of the Forsaken, Haldor can only be found in the Black Forest biome. Like the boss and his mysterious altar, Haldor can spawn several different locations on each Valheim map.
When you are some distance from the Haldor merchant on the map, a money bag icon will appear to help you determine his position. This means that you normally only need to enter the new “Black Forest” biome to find out if Haldor lives there.
Some seeds will spawn Haldor very close to their spawn point, while others have no Merchant locations for miles and miles. It is highly recommended that you place portal next to Haldor after finding him, so that you can quickly go to him anytime, anywhere. Although it appears to be a traveling merchant, in fact it will never move where you find it.
