Valheim Premium Guide

 

Valheim Premium Guide

Valheim is a fascinating " survival game " made in a fantasy setting. Moreover, the theme of the project is entirely devoted to the Vikings and Scandinavian mythology. If you like such a combination, then Valheim is definitely for you, but you definitely shouldn't expect that everything will be simple here from the very beginning. We decided to make a selection of the most important things you need to know about this game in order to survive in the world of merciless Vikings without any problems.


Traveling through the "worlds"

Traveling through the "worlds"

One of the main differences between Valheim and other games in a similar genre is that your achievements here are tied directly to the character, and not to the game "world". The point is that you can freely change servers and at the same time do not deprive yourself of pumping or valuable resources. If you have just started playing and for some reason persistently want to travel only through one virtual "world", then do not be afraid to go beyond the so-called "server line".

In Valheim you should definitely change the server periodically to get as many resources as possible or to knock out valuable loot. While you are cleaning one "world", then useful things in it will begin to gradually end. We pass to another server and, oh my God, there is a lot of all the good that can now be yours.

Wood and stones forever

Wood and stones forever

As in other survival games, resources and their farming play a very important role in Valheim . Nevertheless, not everyone understands what resources will be needed throughout the game, and which ones can be periodically thrown away or hidden somewhere so that they do not take up space in the bag.

Ironically, in Valheim, the most important resources are stones and timber . It is them that, like an insane kleptomaniac, you need to row into your bag, otherwise you are unlikely to linger for a long time in this harsh world of Scandinavian mythology.

Luckily, wood and stones spawn very early in the game and are easy to collect. To get wood, you just need to hit the tree with your powerful fist a couple of times, and the stones just lie on the ground, lift them up and stuff them into your pockets. It is important to remember that these 2 resources should always be with you. Do you hear? Is always!

Realism is everything

Realism is everything

The game is made very realistic, even if the developers did not go to extremes too much. Nevertheless, if you run near a falling tree or somehow unsuccessfully obtained resources from a nearby oak tree, and it suddenly began to fall, then you better run.

You can easily be given a tree, and it will be the most ridiculous death that a severe Viking can only imagine. Similar laws of physics apply to other elements of the Valheim game world .

Nowhere without a workbench

Nowhere without a workbench

You can make the first tools like an ax and a hammer with your own hands from available tools, but then you can't do without a workbench. With its help, the player discovers new items for crafting, so this device is very important in the game.

To create a workbench, you need 10 pieces of wood. In this case, you need to first think about where it is best to place it. If you decide to change the place of deployment, then the workbench can always be disassembled and then re-installed in a new place. The main thing to remember is that this building is an integral part of the development in Valheim . As soon as you run through the forests, picking the first resources on the way with your hands, you will have to settle somewhere, put up a workbench and start making serious things, otherwise you simply will not survive.

Viking needs a home

Viking needs a home

As soon as you have a workbench, you should think about building a full base. Similar to other games in this genre in Valheim, players take great pleasure in raiding each other so as not to waste time gathering resources. It's much easier to kill a newbie and just take everything that he has been saving up for so long. Moreover, Valheim has bosses, and when you defeat them, you get a boost. As a rule, it is after fights with powerful monsters that players begin to think about storming random bases, since with an amplifier they have a better chance of success.

It is best to build your base around where you set up your workbench. It can become the center of your future home. At the same time, in the first place in the process of building a base, its strengthening should always be. You will have to select materials, arrange them correctly and do everything possible so that your "fortress" cannot be taken by storm. Without a base, you definitely won't be in the world of Valheim for long.


The art of self defense

The art of self defense

At first glance, the combat system in the game seems to be some kind of cardboard and generally does not cause any desire to seriously think about one's own actions during the battle. Nonetheless, swinging a club stupidly is not the best solution if you want to survive as long as possible in this harsh world.

You should actively use rolls in order to receive as little damage as possible. You will also have to memorize the movements of each individual type of enemy. Of course, not to the same extent as in some Dark Souls, but if you come close to monsters or players and try to call them stupidly with one button, then you will receive an incredible amount of extra damage. After that, you will start spending a bunch of healing items, and then resources to craft new ones. At some point, it will come to you that because of your wretched battle tactics, you slow down your own development, so it is better to start fighting correctly from the beginning.


Not everything is so simple with pumping

Not everything is so simple with pumping

The game has dozens of skills that gradually make your Viking stronger and help him to survive in the virtual world of the game much easier. To pump them, it is enough to do some specific actions, but not everyone knows one small nuance.

When you die, the pumping of all your skills is automatically reduced. Some are more, some are less, but in any case, this is a minus, and after the next death you will not be the same. This must be remembered, so try your best not to die.


Don't forget about the respawn point

Don't forget about the respawn point

Agree, when you have your own home, it is extremely strange to respawn in a random place or appear in a random forest on the map after returning to the server. That is why, as soon as you build your base, do not forget to put a respawn point there.

In Valheim, she is represented as a bed and a fire. Moreover, both of these structures should be located nearby. Moreover, if the house is wooden and you put a fire on the floor, then after the next return to the base, you may find that it simply burned out. The project does not pretend to be outrageous realism, but such trifles are nevertheless thought out here.

It is best to place the bed against the wall, and put the fire near it, but outside the building. Then your home will be safe, and the respawn point will be at the base, and not in some kind of dense forest, where local monsters or other players will kill you in a couple of minutes.


Let's go to the pig

Let's go to the pig

Despite the fact that Valheim was made in a very primitive way, there are quite a few types of enemies. There are both monsters and common wild animals. So, at the very beginning of the game, it's best to hunt wild boars (yes, I also got flashbacks from WoW ). The fact is that they do not run away and due to this it becomes quite simple to kill a couple of dozen pigs.

When you farm the necessary resources on the boars, you can make a bow out of them. Already with him you can try deer hunting, only you can immediately forget that it will be easy. Deer never stand in one place here!


Battle with the first boss

Battle with the first boss

There are several bosses in Valheim . They are worth defeating in order to get unique improvements. This mechanic just perfectly fit into the concept of the game, this is the case when the boss battles turned out to be useful. When the beginner has made his first weapon and at least some armor, he can go to battle with Eiktir. He spawns not far from where you start the game. At the same time, in order to start a fight, he must be summoned with the help of a deer trophy.

Before you go to Eiktir, you need to craft your own weapon, ideally it should be advanced. In the early stages of the game, this is an advanced bow and flint knife. Also, be sure to create leather armor for yourself, at the start it will be either a deer or a wild boar outfit. After that, eat from the belly, rest as much as possible, and only then go to the battle. As soon as you defeat Eiktir, you can safely pick up the trophy that will fall from him and use it at the respawn point. That's all, you get a bunch of bonuses and you start to feel much more comfortable in the world of Valheim .


That, in fact, is all you need to remember before you go to conquer this ruthless fantasy world. If you do everything right, then among the Vikings you will definitely not be equal. And if you have already played quite a lot in Valheim , then write your tips for beginners in the comments, perhaps we missed something.
