What is Valheim and what can be found there?
Valheim is a fantasy world with Norse mythology elements. In the beginning, your character wakes up in this world and doesn’t remember anything from his past.
You play as Baldur, who has to explore the new world and find out what happened 200 years ago on Valheim.
The game takes place on an island surrounded by swamps and mountains.
The world is also inhabited by different creatures and monsters:
How does the game play?
Valheim has a semi open world where you can explore freely as long as you don’t come too close to the borders of the map.
The objective is to find different camps and settlements which you can talk with NPCs in order to get information about the world and how it became like this.
Once you complete these objectives, the story will progress and new areas will become available for you to explore.
You can upgrade your character by acquiring better equipment and spend skill points on different abilities which you can upgrade.
There’s also crafting in the game but it’s currently not implemented.
The game has several dungeons which you’ll need to explore in order to get more of the story and find out who is responsible for what happened 200 years ago on Valheim.
The dangers of the swamp
The swamp contains several obstacles such as cliffs, steep hills and moving land masses which you’ll have to dodge in order not to die.
And make sure not to drown, because if you do, the game will end.
You’ll be able to breathe underwater for a small amount of time but make sure not to stay there for too long.
There are also giant enemies lurking in the swamps that can kill you with one hit.
This is why you’ll often encounter land masses where you can hide and regenerate your health.
The game also includes a day night cycle in which the enemies become stronger in the night.
There’s currently no weather system implemented but this is something that could be added later on.
In order to survive, you have to craft potions from ingredients you can find, such as flowers and mushrooms.
The potions will help you survive the dangerous swamp or become stronger if you’re fighting enemies.
Now that we know what Valheim is, let’s talk about how to survive in the swamps.
How to get around safely?
On your way through the swamps, you might encounter steep hills and cliffs which you’ll have to cross in order to get through.
However, you should be careful not to fall down because this will result in instant death and a game over for you!
how to find swamp valheim
To get through these obstacles, you should keep an eye out for land masses which you can climb up.
If you find a swamp, there will usually be a small hill nearby where you can ascend and reach a higher ground.
However, make sure to climb down quickly because if you’re standing on the hill too long the land mass will start to sink and you’ll fall into the water.
The world is too big and dangerous to explore on your own so you should always stay close to a higher ground in order not to die.
By following this guide, you’ll be able to survive the swamp much easier and hopefully find answers for yourself about why you’re on Valheim.
