As a result, the players would find their structures and everything inside the served wiped clean, which would force them to start over.

World bosses of Valheim will be a lot harder to beat post update

According to a report by Eurogamer, the developers have also tweaked the difficulty scaling of world bosses. Players won’t have an easy time taking on these mythical monsters, which will directly impact their progression.

Developers noticed that the existing world bosses were not able to pose a challenge, as they intended to. They shared a side note in the patch “u guys are killing them too fast”, and now they have adequately buffed their powers.

World bosses like Bonemass, Moder, Yagluth have received significant buff that will certainly slow down progression. Gamers will no longer encounter the world-breaker bug inside the title, due to the updated socket-backend.

Valheim now also offers Vulkan support as a launch option in steam, and this feature will definitely prevent unnatural crashes.

Players will have to keep the game update as the characters in the latest patch will no longer load in the older versions because of changes in character save data.

The patch has also removed an infamous bug with harpoons that the community abused to make the ship sail faster. Several other bugs with crafting items, ships, building destruction, and network disconnection have all been addressed.
