Sap Extractor in Valheim Explained - How to Extract Sap

Sap Extractor is a very useful tool in the new Mistlands update to Valheim. In this guide you will learn how to build it and what it is used for.

Valheim is a game that allows players to become a Viking, build their own settlement and explore unexplored lands. It's still being developed (it's in early access), so there are new things to do every now and then. At the beginning of December, a new patch called Mistlands was released, which introduced quite a few things to the game. One of the new items it added is the Sap Extractor. In this guide we talk about it.

How to Build a Sap Extractor

To create the Sap Extractor you need to build a workbench nearby. Then "arm yourself" with the hammer and bring up the crafting window. The item itself must be placed on the Ancient root.

Building a Sap Extractor costs 10 Yggdrasil wood, 5 Black metal and 1 Dvergr extractor:

  1. You will acquire Black metal by killing Fulings and taking Black Metal scraps from their bodies, then melting them down.
  2. You can get the Dvergr extractor by raiding Dvergr structures in the Mistlands, remember that the dwarves will become hostile if you try to rob them.
  3. You will get Yggdrasil Wood also in the Mistlands. You need to cut down Yggdrasil Shoots. This tree is characterised by its white and black bark. You will need at least a Blackmetal axe for this.

What is a Sap Extractor

A Sap Extractor is a device for extracting sap from ancient roots. These are found in the Mistlands. They are huge roots with green veins - not to be missed. As if that wasn't enough, when you point the screen at them you will see a caption.

The sap obtained from them is very important, as Refined Eitr can be created from them. This item, on the other hand, is needed to build many new items introduced in the new patch. It is therefore worth keeping it in stock.

If the Sap extractor collects at least one piece of sap, it will start to glow green. It is worth remembering that it can collect a maximum of 10 sap, so empty it regularly.
