Walheim Biome: What to expect in different areas of the map
The map of Wallheim consists of nine different areas called Biomes. Six have been more or less fully implemented, and the other three plans have been enriched in future developments. Each biome has its own uniqueness, producing different resources, creatures, weather and even bosses.
Since Walheim’s map is generated procedurally, the exact location and size of each biome may vary greatly. Biomes are not necessarily continuous, but usually smaller areas of each type of area can be found on the map.
You will not necessarily encounter biomes in the order shown here. However, if you want to follow the story, it is roughly the path of the biome you might want to walk, depending on the order of your battle with the game boss.
Generally speaking, the biome of the late game boss usually also contains tougher enemies, so if you want to master the best weapons to deal with bigger baddies in advance, you need to try to deal with them roughly.
Biome 1: Grassland
This Meadows The biome is the starting point of the game. This is a relatively safe place, and only a few hostile creatures can spawn until you confront your first boss.That boss is Exel The stag and its altar of summoning can also be found in the area.
Greylings Will appear on the grass, but only after defeating Axel. When visiting the area again after the second boss fight, special Greyling categories (such as Brute and Shaman) may also be generated.
The resources found in Meadows are often particularly useful for basic and early game production.They include trees to wood with High quality wood,as well as stone with flint. With these, you can start to make basic tools and build your first shelter. However, you need to go farther to find more complex and versatile resources.
Biome 2: Black Forest
This Black forest It is often the largest area on the map of Wallheim.Compared with the original Meadows biome, the Black Forest occupies even more real estate. This is your first opportunity to collect more powerful handicraft resources, such as Core wood.
It is also the first place you can mine and the only place to spawn Believe with copper, This is essential for unlocking better production techniques that can enable you to develop further in the game.
Of course, until someone encounters a game, it is a very interesting game. Troll, Is the most threatening new enemy found in the area. The Greylings you encounter in the Meadows biome are also here to bring you more trouble.
Senior citizens Is the boss encountered in this biome. You will not be able to pass the next biome completely before defeating The Elder, so it is a good idea to focus on completing this battle. Fortunately, this encounter happened before the difficulty of the “swamp” increased.
After defeating The Elder, you will be able to use Burial chamber.These dungeons are great for collecting resources, but both can be troublesome ghost with skeleton Who tried to stop you
Biome 3: Swamp
As Valheim said, Meadows and the Black Forest are relatively peaceful.This swamp This is where things get harder.
Have a a lot of There will be more hostile creatures here, and most of them are frightening and/or disgusting in order to truly blend in.But this is the boss of the biome Bonemass -Usually considered to be the culprit of the soaring difficulty.
But the swamp is also home here Sunken grave. After defeating The Elder boss in the previous section, you can explore these dungeons to get some of the best in-game resources.
The swamp is also the only source Ancient bark with Scrap iron, These two handicrafts are very useful for upgrading equipment at this time in the game.
Biome 4: Mountains
This Mountains So far, the number of hostile creatures is less than in any other region. However, this has a unique complexity: it is the only biome that is harmful to the weather.
Entering the mountain area will give the player character a “freeze” effect. When exploring the mountains, you need to always protect yourself from the cold, such as wearing wolf armor, sheltering from rain, and drinking plenty of anti-freeze mead.
The boss of this biome is Modal.Like new Drake When encountering an enemy in this area, she can attack from the air and from the ground, thereby creating new potential dangers for the negligent.
Mountains are the only biome you can mine obsidian with Silver ore. If you plan to make the best armor and weapons in the game, these are very important elements, so once you find the area, it is easy to attract them. However, the importance of entering a biome that is prepared for harsh climates cannot be underestimated.
Biome 5: Plain
One of the most dangerous areas in the game is Plain It seems pleasing in appearance.It’s always sunny, and the local handicraft resources are whimsical. Huang Mei, flax, with barley.
The plain is the only area on the map you will encounter death toll, It sounds terrible. These huge insects are incredible, and if you venture into their biome too early in the game, they may kill you with one blow.All the categories you will also find Fuling (Normal, Berserker and Shaman), spawn on the plains.
You fight the fifth (current) last boss in the game, Yaru, Was called out in the plains.
Plain is the only biome in the game that never rains. Despite the dangerous residents, this actually makes them a good choice for building a permanent base, because the wooden structure will not rot there.
Biome 0: Ocean
This oceanIts status as a biome is often overlooked, possibly because it has no boss fights. Overall, it is also slightly different: it requires a boat to travel back and forth, which makes it generally feel more like an obstacle to exploration than a separate area. However, there are some things in the ocean that deserve attention.
The ocean contains only one type of enemy: snake. This hostile marine creature will attack the player and their ship. It is best to stay vigilant and master long-range weapons.
There are two types of passive creatures in the ocean: fish with Leviathan. Fishing rods can be used to catch fish and used as food, and Leviathan can be mined to obtain unique handicraft resources.
As of this writing, Walheim has three empty biomes. As an early access version of the game, all the content in Valheim has not yet been implemented.
You can go to these areas of the map, but nothing will be generated in them. However, you may occasionally encounter creatures passing through adjacent biomes, or harvest general resources such as wood and stone.
The three biomes under development are:
- Mistlands: Compared with other areas in Walheim, Mislan Island is easier to identify as purgatory, it is like a dead forest. The biome is characterized by the permanent night sky and the existence of huge spider webs among the trees, although there are no spiders in the game.
- Deep North: The “Deep North Region” was found in the northernmost area of the map, which is very similar to the “Mountain” biome. Players wishing to explore the area will need some form of frost resistance (armor or mead). This biome also has a frozen river, and players who get wet will suffer frost damage even if they wear wolf armor.
- Ashland: Ashland is at the southernmost point of the map. At this point of development, Ashland is more or less barren wasteland. However, in fact, unique resources can be found there: Luminous metal, Which can be mined and refined into Flame Ore. However, they are not currently used in the game.
