Valheim guides

Valheim drops players into a Viking afterlife where they’ll have to explore, find resources, build, craft, and fight in order to survive. Polygon’s Valheim guides are here to help any time you’re confused about what to do or where to go next, finding resources, or how something works. We have tips to get you started, a guide to multiplayer, biome walkthroughs, and boss fight guides. Progression in Valheim basically goes like this: head to a new biome, gather new resources, craft new stuff, fight that biome’s boss, lather, rinse, and repeat. We have guides for all five steps currently in the early access version of the game, starting with a guide from the spawn point to the first boss.
