    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 :)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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...
