So today guys we’re looking at 50 tips and tricks in the valheim game. This should help you out no matter what level you’re at, but in particular, if you’re new they’ll be very useful. If you want more videos like this and more valhand videos in general, please do consider liking and subscribing for more. You can open your inventory and crafting area by pressing tab down here. You can start off by crafting things and one of the best things to craft early game will be the hammer, as this will open up many more crafting recipes, as we shall see in a minute also on tab.
You have the valheim compendium. This will show your current active effects and also you can scroll through all of your previous huge and tips, to see what advice you’ve got. If you need a reminder, this menu also has the area to show you your skills and your current trophies, as well as toggling pvp. If you are playing on a server pressing m, will open up the map and make it bigger. You can scroll in and out to zoom in and out of the map, and when you get to a certain area, you are able to double click.
To set a waypoint. You can then left click this again to cross it out and right click. If you want to delete it, if it is crossed out – and you want to uncross, it simply left click again on the right hand, side here, you’ll see you have different icons, you can use to set here and you can select one of those by left clicking. Once you have your icon and you’ve placed it, you can also type in a name if you want to make a named icon just like this, it can be an idea to scroll way out on your map, as you will find some icons and things as you Go through the game that you perhaps haven’t explored yet so this is in an unexplored area, but i know where i have to head. If i want to get to the elder, when in game, you can also use the middle mouse wheel to scroll in and out of your view to be zoomed in or out for a different viewpoint, you can press control plus f3 to get rid of the heads-up Display – and you can still scroll in and out at this point and then use f12 to get screenshots that you’re, not in if you so wish, when you’re out and about you, can select your hammer and right-click to open up a menu and make yourself up a Campfire, as long as you have some stone and wood on, you then left click to place it.
If you go near to the campfire and you press x to sit down, you can rest on the go without needing to have a bed. Of course, you may need a shelter if it’s raining, because the campfire can be put out by rain when exploring it’s a good idea to have weapons and armor on you, you can equip those with your hotkeys, so we can press three and five to equip their Our shield, and also our spear now when you’re walking around what you might want to do is press r. This will put this behind you, so you can run around a little bit faster and lose a bit less stamina. Then, if you encounter an enemy, simply hit r again to quickly wield these weapons, when you get to water, you can swim. But as you see here, if you run out of stamina and are still swimming, you will start to take damage.
So you definitely want to be careful about swimming, particularly out in the open, as it could eventually kill you before you have an axe. You can punch these trees here to break them up and get wood. You just punch them using your fists, but it must be. These very small trees, obviously not any of the bigger trees. This will give you your starting wood requirements before you make your axe.
So once you have your axe, you will be able to chop down trees by going up to the tree and left clicking it. As you see here, they do fall now be very careful because if the trees fall on you, you will take damage once it falls. You’Ll have this, and sometimes it gets stuck on other trees. Like this other times, it will be on the floor. Simply then start chopping, this up and you’ll chop the slob into pieces and eventually down into wood and you’ll, get a lot more wood than you will of course, get from the saplings again be careful as these logs here roll around.
You can take damage and it could even kill you so be careful when you are chopping down trees when you’re exploring you will come across deer in order to get them, you want to hit control to sneak and come up from behind them with your weapon wielded. You can get pretty close from them. Do it this way, and you want to be pretty close before you attack, so it’s not to scoop them uh scare them, i should say scoop them down. That was, and then, when you attack them, obviously they’ll die and you’ll get the goodies from them. One of the drops that you will get from killing deer are the deer trophy you’ll need two of these.
In order to spawn in the first boss feel free to kill as many deer and boar as you find around your map and around your base, they will keep respawning. So you don’t need to worry about saving them later for farming you can make a hoe and, whilst holding it right, click to open up this menu where you can create a path raise ground or even level ground leveling ground is useful, as you will be able To place floor on it, which you’ll need to do in order to make your house in order to sleep, your bed needs to be under cover and also near a fireplace in order to do this, you can either do what i’ve done here, where the fire is Placed on the dirt fire cannot be placed on floor, so i placed it under outside of the house and then made this structure here around. It be sure to do the roof like i’ve done here. As you can see there, it is letting smoke out. If you don’t do that, your cabin will fill the smoke and you’ll inhale.
That and your character will take damage. However, a cheap way to do this early game is to make a fireplace just here. Like you see, my bed is just behind this wall right here. Once this fireplace is lit, the bed will see that it is near enough to a fireplace and allow you to sleep. However, if it rains, this fire will be doused whilst holding your hammer.
You can right click and see a whole host of things here that you are able to craft, and if you go up to items that have been left outside, you can left-click to repair them. These items, when left outside will take damage in the rain and will need to be repaired. Otherwise they could be destroyed. One thing you can do when you have 50 wood and you’re holding your hammer, is to right click and select a wood stack, which is what you see i have here. This means you’re able to stack up your wood and then, when you need it, you simply.
What’S holding the hammer middle mouse click to pick all the wood back up and you’ll have 50 more wood. In your inventory i had those 31 already. This is a better way of storing wood than taking up space in your chests. Your workbench and forge must be placed under cover, as you see, with the roof and also have some walls around them before they are able to be used. Once you have that done, you can go up to a bench and press e and repair all of your tools and items all that sort of stuff for free, simply just keep left-clicking this stuff until that is no longer there and it will repair all of your Things for you, this is free to do and should be done as often as possible when in your inventory or in a chest, what you can do is shift and left click to select any number you like out of the stack, if you don’t want the full Stack and want just a specific amount.
You’Ll then pick that up and you can put them in here. You can again shift click here like this and just take a couple back and put them back in like that. If you want to once you have a bow, you will see, there are a range of different arrows you can use. We have fire arrows here and flint head arrows in order to select which arrows your bow is going to shoot. You can simply right click and they will then turn blue.
This means that i’m now about to shoot a fire arrow chess are a great way of storing items. However, if we try to make a chest here and place it on top of another chest, you’ll see it simply won’t. Let us so one way around that is to go into the building section and get this little one by one wood floor thing here and place that just above the chest, then we can right click back to furniture, get the chest and place it. On top of the other one, just like that, if you use the hammer to destroy this bit of wood in between you’ll, see the chest actually stays in place. So you can stack the chest neatly like this and still access them both.
Even though there is nothing between them in order to cook food, you will need to make up a cooking station and place it above a fire pit. Once you do that, you can of course get your food and place it on there to cook. So you can grab some of your meat here. Just like this go up and you’ll see here we can press e to cook the item now. What the item will do it’ll actually go through two stages.
First of all, it will cook and you’ll get cooked meat from it. If you leave it, it will actually be a way of getting some charcoal, so we’re gon na see all that just now. So, as you see there there’s a bit of a graphic, a bit of a noise and a change, and we can simply look at that now and press e to pick up a cooked there. We go pick up a cooked uh bit of food and add that to our meat that we have on us now, this one right here is also cooked, but we’re just gon na leave. It and you’ll see the next stage it goes through.
So there we go that little change right there and we’ve accidentally overcooked it we’ve burnt it and uh. We need to get a bit away. You see that it said about us breathing in the smoke. So now in our inventory we have picked up a coal, so we’ve got a lump of coal there. The coal is used in the smelter.
I have a video all about the mining guide. If you’re interested on my channel on me right now, i am holding a spear. This is quite a useful weapon because, as well as a melee attack when you’re up close to enemies like that another thing you can do, if you use the middle mouse button, is throw it at an enemy and kill it. That way. This, of course, gives you two different options of attack with the spear i’m currently holding the stag breaker hammer, and this is a very powerful weapon that you can make in the early game, pretty op for an early game weapon, but it also has another use as I’Ll show you when we get to a structure.
So when you get to structures throughout your game, you can use this hammer to hit these structures and it will take a few hits. I’D already done some damage before, but then what you’ll actually do is be able to pick up wood from these. So it can be a way of getting wood early game if you’re unhappy with your world seat. But you feel like you’ve done a lot of work and you’ve got skills and items you don’t want to lose, not to fear simply load up your inventory with all the things that you want and log out once you’ve done this, you can start a new world With the same character and all of these skills and items will be kept. So if we go start a new game here, we go start we’ll, go new and we’ll just go for a seed of new, because i haven’t done that one before oh new new.
All right, it has to be whatever up here, hit done and start this world i’ll wait for this to spawn up and then i’ll show you that i have all of my items and skills. So here i am i’ve literally just spawned in in this new world. You can see from the map – i haven’t done anything yet at all, and yet in my inventory here i have all of that stuff that i left with and on my skills. All my skills are what they were on that previous world. Once you have a pickaxe, you can easily find buried treasure and bones when you find a stone arrangement like this in the shape of a ship, you simply dig it out and, as you can see down here, i left the chest in place.
There was treasure inside this before and as you’re digging it you’ll find skeletal remains, which once picked up will give you some bone. Fragments. A cart is a very useful thing to make throughout the game, because you can store a lot more in it than you can carry yourself, and you can simply pick it up and wheel it around to go off and do your mining or wood chopping and just Take a whole load of extra resources with you once you’re at the stage where you have a charcoal, kiln and also a smelter one little tip is to put things in them before you go to sleep at night time. If i put a load of wood in there and a load of resources in here to be smelted up and then go to sleep, when i wake up, time will have passed and all those resources will be waiting out. The front for me in the morning make sure to be wearing as much good armor as possible and taking as many uh weapons and a shield and all that sort of stuff with you before you go exploring, particularly if you can do a black forest, you will Need to do a lot of black forest exploring in the early game and those places can be very dangerous.
You do not want to die there. So speaking of black forests, here we are in one, and here are a few things you can find starting off with carrot, seeds which look like this, and you can press e of to pick them up. You see there. You get a few seeds from each carrot that you will find, and you can use these seeds later on, to farm them for food either for yourself or to use to breed bores. Another thing you can find in black forests are pine trees.
These are definitely worth cutting down as pine wood is useful and will unlock some new recipes. Copper and tin will also be found in black forest biomes. As you can see, this is a big deposit of copper right here. When you see this, you will need a pickaxe to hit a way out to go ahead and get the copper tin will be found down near the water. Just like this.
So here we are near the water and there is a tin deposit. Again, you can use your pickaxe on that to harvest it. Tin will always be found near water in the black forest. Biome you’ll also find these burial chambers inside of a black forest, and you can go inside them, not that around that way around this way and enter into them by pressing e. I actually need to get out of here a second because those things are going to attack me, but inside those burial chambers, you’ll find uh a lot of mobs, so do be careful.
There’S gon na be a lot of things. They’Re trying to kill you gear up, eat up all that sort of stuff, but that is where you’ll also get your circling cores and some loot from you can get things like rubies and gold and stuff like that in those as well, when you’re out exploring you’ll. Often be trying to find your way between one or more different icons, and they are obviously on your map and the mini map is in the top right corner of the screen. You’Ll see here by using the comma and full stop buttons. You can zoom in and out of the map so that you can enable yourself to see those icons more easily if they are a bit further away.
Stamina is very important when you’re trying to fight things. If you run out of stamina, you won’t be able to attack and defend yourself once you have a forge you’ll, be able to use that to make a lot of things and one of those things is a cultivator. As you see right here now, you need bronze for this, and you’ll also need core wood, core wood you get from those pine trees. I showed you in the black forest biome. So with your cultivator wielded, you can right click and do all kinds of things from making grass, where you’ve previously got rid of it to making it uh cultivated land that just looks like farmland, and then you can also plant things on the cultivated land.
So if we go here, you’ll see, for example, we could place a carrot seed just down there like that. If we come over here, we cannot place a carrot seed on this bit of the land here that hasn’t been cultivated. It needs to be in the cultivated area once you have some deer hide on you, you can using your hammer right click, go into the furniture area and make up a deer rug. You will need four hide to do this. As you can see here, i’ve placed one on my floor.
The purpose of this is to add to the comfort level of your settlement. It’S always good to have a bow and arrows on you when you’re exploring, and it’s also always good to explore little settlements. You come across when you’re out and about but one thing in particular that can be useful. Is that right there, which is a bee hive, so i’m just going to run in here, so you can get a better look at that’s how the hive looks normally. I wouldn’t get this close, because bees can start to sting you and there we go, i’m getting stung, so we’re going to run away just a little bit here, but beehives are super useful.
So what we can do with our bow and arrow is shoot at the beehive until it is destroyed, so once you’ve destroyed the beehive. You want to give it a second and wait for the bees to dissipate, but then you can go and get some drops from them, including honey, which is a good early game food source, but every now and again, you’ll also get yourself a queen bee. Now, once you do get yourself a queen bee using your hammer, you will unlock the recipe for a beehive as you see here, so you need one queen bee as you see there and you need to be near a workbench and you need some wood now. This is super useful because it does mean you can make the beehives like i’ve got up here and they will produce honey for you. Up to four honey can be stored in a beehive and at that point, you’ll need to extract it before any more is made.
But honey is a very useful early game resource, so it’s definitely worth taking your time to collect queen bees and honey. When you’re out exploring when using your workbench to craft a shield on the right hand, side, you can click the style button and choose for it to have a different style. If you want to make it look a little bit jazzy in the same way that you repair all of the things you make with the workbench using the workbench, you can also use the forge to repair things you make using the forge, such as our cultivator. So if i click that our cultivator is now healed up again, this doesn’t cost anything and should be done as often as possible. Once you have coal, you can use this along with some wood by right, clicking with your hammer wielded and going to furniture and selecting sign to place down a sign.
You’Ll see. One side has three dots on it, and one doesn’t the side with three dots on. It is the side where you can put the text, so we can left click there to uh. Put that in then. If we’re near the sign, we press e, we can write whatever we want on it and enter that in and there you go.
You can also edit the sign by being near pressing e and changing the text to whatever else you might want it to say. The final tip i have for you guys is to subscribe to my channel.
