Valheim’s final Hearth & Home preview details axe buffs and bow nerfs

Become a viking wizard with this Valheim mod Skyheim

Valheim already has its own sort of magic with the forsaken powers you get from each boss, but if you’re more into to slinging fireballs around you may want to try out Skyheim. This mod adds runes that you can craft with loot from bosses and dungeons. Summon a light instead of carrying a torch. Scorch a forest full of Greylings with your fire. Oh, and teleport yourself back to your bed at will. It sounds pretty powerful, but chucking fire and ice around sure looks like a good time. Read more

Valheim mod lets you overclock your smelters

After a strong mining sesh in Valheim, I believe there’s no greater agony than smelting all the ore I’ve gathered.

Well, one reason why not is that these two ideals sometimes rub up against each other the wrong way. Developer Iron Gate Studio found a particular pressure point when they came to design its portals, which instantly teleport players across the game world. “We…
