The Redditor shared the idea of a more intricate item system for each respective character item. The aforementioned image showcased a particular slot for each item, but currently character items take up inventory slots. This suggestion would enable the players to utilize the entire inventory, which would otherwise go to waste because of weapon and armor items. This problem has bothered gamers world over, as it unnecessarily takes up inventory slots that are needed for exploration. If items like weapons, armor, cape, and boots get their own special space away from inventory, then it will bolster better inventory management.

This will enable gamers to carry useful lightweight items like coins, resins, animal skins without any hesitation. It will also make room for them to pick up necessary gems and vital luxury items that would help them in the long run.

The game still needs a lot of work as it is just in its nascent stage and with suggestions like this, Valheim can become the perfect game it aspires to be.
