Today we will be looking at my top tips for brand new players in Valheim. The tips will help you advance faster through the early stages of the game.
The first tip to speed you along is crafting a
crude bow as soon as can, and upgrade it as quickly as you can too. The bow is a game-changer. It allows you to easily take deer and birds
to get you leather and feathers. Without
the range of the bow, hunting these animals is very difficult.
Kill every wild boar you come across. Early in the game the resource I run out of
the most is leather scraps and these are only dropped by wild
boars. The leather scraps seem to go
into everything you want early in the game, so take advantage of every encounter
with a pig that you can. Later on in the
game, you can tame them for a steadier supply.
Flint and stone are the next resources that I
run out of early. As you come across
flint and stone pick it up, especially near your base, since it will respawn
eventually. Store the extra flint in a storage chest and make piles of
Shield and leveling up skills. The blocking
mechanic in Valheim is great, so take advantage of it. Use it sometimes, even though it isn’t always
necessary. This will improve the
blocking skill that will be useful as the game gets harder. The same goes for running jumping and
swimming. Jump for joy and run more
often than you need. This will improve
those skills for later.
Finally, craft a bed, so you have a spawn point
at your base. Don’t forget to set the
spawn point after you place it, otherwise, it won’t work. In Valheim you can
have multiple beds, but only one of them
can be used as a spawn point, and that will be the last bed you slept in unless you set a new spawn point.
And those are my quick and dirty tips for starting in
Valheim. If you’ve already been playing
this game for a while and have a tip you would like to share, please leave it
