Rancid Remains in Valheim are a rare encounter that only well-established warriors should seek out.

Iron Gate's tenth world of the famous World Tree, Yggdrasil, is home to several unnatural creatures. Valheim has dozens of strange enemies of every shape and size roaming the landscape—harrassing settlements and taking down unsuspecting warriors as they go.

One of these is Rancid Remains.

Rancid Remains in Valheim

We've broken down the primary questions about Rancid Remains below.

What are Rancid Remains in Valheim

Rancid Remains are essentially just green skeletons that are slightly larger than average. They are, of course, a hostile enemy that will attack warriors on sight. Fortunately, like most skeleton creatures, Rancid Remains don't pose much of a threat when faced head-on. They are available in 3 varieties: zero, one, and two stars. Their respective stats are:

  • Health: 100 / 200 / 300
  • Blunt Damage: 20 / 30 / 40
  • Poison Damage: 20 / 30 / 40

These enemies will occasionally carry a mace. When attacking, they will deal poison damage for every hit they land. They are weak to blunt and fire damage, resistant to pierce and frost damage, and completely immune to poison damage.

Where to Find Rancid Remains in Valheim

The most common place to find Rancid Remains is inside Burial Chambers. They are also known to spawn as part of the Skeleton Surprise event when the player has killed enough skeletons in-game.

Rancid Remains will always drop Bone Fragments in stacks of three, six, and twelve depending on the star tier. They have a small chance of dropping a Rancid Remains trophy, as well.
