Valheim: New Patch increases the Game Difficulty because You are too good

Some bosses have been adjusted with the latest patch for Valheim so that you don’t bring them to their knees too quickly.

Valheim has received a new patch. And it not only fixes a few bugs and glitches, but also tinkers with the difficulty of its bosses. In the following we provide you with an overview of what update 0.146.8 changes in Valheim and list all the patch notes for you.

The most important changes in patch 0.146.8

Bosses get tougher: With the new patch, the bosses of Valheim should present a greater challenge. Specifically, it is about three of the five bosses who are supposed to challenge you more in their arguments – more on this in the spoiler box below.

And according to the developers, this has a very simple point: The Valheim players simply flattened most of the bosses far too quickly. On Twitter specified developer Richard Svensson what changes were made to three of the five bosses:

  • Bone paunch: The cooldown of his melee attacks has been increased
  • Moder: Receives 2,500 additional life points
  • Yagluth: Resistances have been adjusted and his life points have been doubled

“Mosquitos” are easier to spot: With patch 0.146.9 Valheim gets – attention, thigh knockers – a bug fix in the truest sense of the word. The (rather disgusting) Deathsquitos are now easier to discover, as the range of their ominous whirring has been increased slightly.

So you shouldn’t be surprised by the nasty bloodsuckers quite so often.

Save-File-Bug fixed: In addition, an error is now a thing of the past that put your scores at risk or corrupted your game world. Logging out of Valheim and quitting the game with ALT + F4 at the same time led to this – but now this game error is said to have been eliminated.

By the way: Should you be playing Valheim with friends on a dedicated server, we recommend that you update and restart it. In this way, you prevent a black screen when you return to Valheim.

You should also note that your character or your saved game will no longer be available with a previous version of Valheim once you have loaded it in patch 0.146.8.
