To recover your health and maintain stamina in Valheim, you’re going to need a plentiful supply of food. And since no two same pieces of food can be consumed consecutively, it’s vital that you’re keeping a good stock of different recipes. Of course, to do that, you’re going to need raw ingredients, and that’s where one particular structure comes in handy. Here’s how to get a Windmill and what it does in Valheim.
What a Windmill Does
Windmills turn Barley into Barley Flour, which you will use to cook several hearty recipes that offer massive health and stamina replenishment. These are as follows:
- Blood pudding
- Fish wraps
- Lox meat pie
The Windmill holds 50 Barley, which will drop 20 Flour in return. Most of the recipes listed above require 1-4 Flour each.
How to Get a Windmill in Valheim
After you’ve beaten the game’s fourth boss, Moder, you’ll be rewarded with materials that can be used to build an Artisan Table. It is mandatory to have an Artisan Table in order to build a Windmill. It must be in its radius, though you can actually get rid of it afterward and the Windmill will still function.
It’s worth noting that the Windmill does actually operate via wind in a realistic fashion, so you can expect to produce more flour during storms and less flour when the wind is only blowing lightly.
You might want to consider building several Windmills in a cluster to maximize your return on Barely.
That’s everything there is to know about how to get a Windmill and what it does in Valheim. If you’re after more useful tips and information on the game, Twinfinite has written dozens of more guides, which you can find by using the search engine from the main menu.
