Amongst all of the important items added in the Hearth and Home update for Valheim, the developers also included some non-essential items.
However, more often than not, these items are the ones that players remember the most. In a possible homage to The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, Iron Gate Studios added in a hot tub with the Hearth and Home update. As Witcher players know, the hot tub is an iconic part of the franchise, in both the games and the Netflix show. Those fans now have a way to take part in their own steamy relaxation with a hot tub in Valheim.
Of course, players need to know what’s required to craft the hot tub before they can enjoy it in Valheim.
Crafting the Hot Tub in Valheim
To start, the exact crafting recipe for the hot tub in Valheim is as follows:
This is a hefty recipe, as 10 iron is a solid amount for you to acquire. The wood and stone for the recipe are self-explanatory, as you can gather it right outside of your base.
For the iron, you’ll need to venture into the Swamp biome with a Swamp Key and find a Crypt. Once inside, you need to mine muddy scrap piles for iron ore and then smelt it into iron ingots.
The last part of the recipe is the hardest part. Tar is also a new addition in Valheim and you need to head into the Plains biome to find it. Make sure you’re geared up when you enter the Plains, as deathsquitos and Fuling can make life very difficult if you’re not. As you’re in the Plains, look out for tar pits, which hold the necessary tar you need for the hot tub recipe.
After you have all of the ingredients, head back to your base and craft it in a location that’s close enough to a workbench. Also, you want to place the hot tub in a well-ventilated area, as it produces smoke that will smog up the area if there’s not a chimney nearby.
