You ain't killing enough shit if you're running out.
I suppose you have a point, I just let my wolves kill greydwarves. I don't go back and pick up their crap.
As for resin though, we light the ever living shit out of our fortresses. I'm forever topping up torches, sconces and fire arrows, to the point that I'm actually going to make a greydwarf farm just to keep on top of it. We don't see many greydwarves in the other biomes.
Sorry just realised this, if you go back to the sacrificial stones, you can see exactly who you're fighting next. It's clockwise in order on the stones, theres no mystery in WHO you're fighting next, just where and how.
Yep we figured that out ages back. Just finding the location will be the goal of the next session.
Finding the stone pointing us toward the 4th boss was a total pain in our map.... we spent a whole day sailing around searching for the biome then hunting through it... turned out the pointer marker and the boss were quite close, but about 2/3 of the map away from home.
Yeah, I have like 4 stacks of eyes and almost a full small chest of resin. I just leave it on the ground now.
I've found this seems to pay many times the dividend. Simply store anything that doesn't seem immediately useful, it will be later
Coming from 7daystodie, playing this game, is definitely more savory
One boss left for us in our first play/seed
Been a great time. 70+ hours so far
So if anyone is wanting to get back in or try something new in Valheim, I can 100% recommend picking up a few mods by RandyKnapp - most importantly his Loot mod which adds enchanted item drops, enchanting, bounty/treasure hunting missions and makes the game feel a lot more varied and rewarding. Still in progress and lots more to make, but there's already a few legendary sets in the game and some genuinely game changing items, like throwable/recalling mods so you can throw and immediately retrieve almost any weapon, water walking, waterproof and your standard array of other modifiers.
100% recommend giving it a go, it's a lot of fun.
I'm waiting for Hearth and Home to come out before I jump back in.
They really squandered their launch hype window by not getting those content updates out... Such a shame.
Yep. I'm flabbergasted at how they haven't been able to put out any new content. Such a shame.
Hearth & Home coming on September 16th
Hearth and Home update has landed:
* Weapons rebalanced (All weapons have been rebalanced to be more viable as main weapon and also have more unique playstyles)

* Naming tamed creatures
* Gamepad sensitivity settings
* Auto-pickup toggle button added
* Graphics settings (Active point lights & Active point light shadows)
* Tamed creatures affected by friendly fire setting (i.e you can’t hurt a tamed creature unless you enable friendly fire or use the new Butcher knife item)
* Various other improvements and bugfixes
* Food rebalance (Most food items now give mainly stamina or mainly health to make food choices more interesting)
* Food GUI overhauled to work better with the rebalanced food
* Over 10 new things to eat (Actually 12)

* Iron cooking station (Required to cook some types of meat)
Also: "While many features introduced in Hearth & Home have already been revealed, not even Odin has spied some of the new features being added with the update, including something dark and mysterious that seems to spread across the plains… Brave vikings should go and find out for themselves!"
Colour me Underwhelmed
Is this worth picking up? Been watching it for a while and with a big update and a small discount, might be time to jump in.
Pick it up if you've got 2 or 3 mates to play it with, not sure if I'd recommend it for a solo experience
edit: to be clear, it's an excellent game
yeah you can play it solo but it's geared more toward a group. I've been playing it all solo and it gets pretty frustrating.
It's on sale this weekend on Steam...
Just waiting for mod support, although I'm super sad that the maker of the loot mod removed water walking now I'm expected to sail everywhere like a friend peasant...
