In this guide on Valheim Jotun Puffs we will explain the many uses of this new mushroom & how to successfully grow it in the Mistlands.

What Are Jotun Puffs Valheim?

Jotun Puffs are a golden mushroom found growing in bunches of three throughout the Mistlands in Valheim. They are one of two new mushrooms recently added along with Magecaps, which are part of the new magic system recently introduced in Valheim.

They can be eaten directly for minimal gains of 25 Health & 25 Stamina or used to craft certain dishes & meads like the Misthare Supreme, Mushroom Omelette, Honey Glazed Chicken, Salad, Mead Base: Minor Eitr & Mead Base: Lingering Stamina.

Where Can You Find Jotun Puffs?

You can find Jotun Puffs growing all throughout the Mistlands biome, growing wildly in various places. Like other plants, they will appear randomly in different areas but typically grow in little bunches of three & especially in the little valley areas of the Mistlands.

How Do You Grow Jotun Puffs In Valheim?

Once you have acquired a few Jotun Puffs it’s time to start thinking about replanting them. To do this you’ll need to find a big grassy area & cultivate it as you can only replant Jotun Puffs in cultivated soil so not on any rocky or cliff areas.

When planting the Jotun Puffs pay attention to the on-screen message about the space required between each one, if you see a “needs more room to grow” message simply replant it slightly further away. Each one needs about 1.5m of space to successfully grow. Once grown (after 2 in-game days) for each Jotun Puff planted you will acquire 3 Jotun Puffs back.

Note: Valheim Jotun Puffs can only be found & grown inside the Mistlands biome.

Protecting Your Jotun Puffs

The Mistlands can be a dangerous area for growing crops with the fast & powerful cockroach like Seekers & Gjall’s looking to wipe out your harvest. The gigantic fire breathing Gjall’s can especially be dangerous to your harvest as they float around occasionally spawning its tick minions.

Avoiding these is a good idea for peaceful farming & to achieve this you can add a bit more protection to your growing areas by building a wall around them to keep out the seekers. Unfortunately this wont do much good against the Gjall’s flying over them, & with the new mushrooms needing direct light to grow enclosing your farming area inside a building isn’t a option.

To improve your chances further it’s best to try to grow on the edges of the Mistlands, ideally somewhere that borders the plains or black forest. Another option is around the islands towards the edges of the Mistlands biome were fewer seekers & Gjalls seem to appear.

Note: Your Jotun Puffs & Magecaps are only under threat while growing, once fully grown they are no longer targeted.
