Terraheim - Weapons/Tools/Armor

Terraheim is both an overhaul for Valheim's armor system with the goal of making each armor set viable all the way to the end of the game and a weapon expansion that fills the gaps in the games base roster.

Weapons and Tools

39 new weapons and tools have been added with the goal of filling in the gaps in each tier. 14 of which are new Flametal weapons which have unique and dangerous effects, from hurtling waves of fire across the battlefield with Mistilteinn to teleporting to the struck location with Rhongomiant! (Flametal Weapons

Throwing Weapons

Five new throwing axes have been added as well as Fire, Frost and Lightning bombs! Throwing Axes You can view damage values, moveset information, and recipes here in the Weapons tab. If you only want the new weapons, you can set the armorChangesEnabled field to false in the balance.json file to disable the armor changes.


Each piece of armor has been given its own unique effect and each armor set its own set bonus while also allowing armor to be 'reforged,' which increases all of the piece's stats to be usable in the next tier of gameplay. These effects can range from simple damage bonuses all the way to interesting effects like Wyrdarrow! If you only want the armor changes, you can delete the TerraheimItems.dll file to disable the armor changes.


Each armor set has been divided into four classes:


Berserkr's have a focus on dodging, one handed damage, two handed weapon damage and stamina management.


Bowmen focus on dealing damage via, well bows, as well as daggers and spears. They focus on ammo consumption, backstab bonus, and sneaking. They have the worst armor rating in game.


Shieldbrothers are adept at blocking and have increased health. They can effectively deal damage with all melee weapons, but they are slower than the other classes. They have the highest armor rating in game.


Braggart armor is for those who want a challenge, they provide some minor stat benefits with some large detriments too. Think of these sets as the Calamity ring from Dark Souls.

Detailed Information

You can in depth documentation for each set and tier here!


As you progress through the game, you will be able to reforge armor. Essentially leveling the armor up to utilize the new materials you come across. When you do so, the armor set's armor rating increases, and every one of its bonuses becomes more effective. For example, you can reforge the Bronze Helmet to become an Iron-Reinforced Bronze Helmet by combining a Bronze Helmet, some Iron, and some Deer Hide at the Armorer's Bench. By doing this, it's armor has increased from 15 to 19, and it's bonus(+5% Melee Damage) increases to +7% Melee Damage. Reforging means that you won't have chests full of out-dated equipment as you can continually have the armor set keep pace with your progression!

Armorer's Bench

Terraheim adds in the Armorer's Bench, a new workbench that focuses all armor related crafting to a single location. It is accessible very early, only requiring some leather, wood, and stone to craft. Furthermore, five upgrade pieces are available to let you upgrade your armor all the way to max. At the armorer's bench, you can craft, upgrade, reforge all integrated armor and capes.

Mod Integration

Terraheim integrates several popular armor mods into itself, automatically modifying the armor sets to fit within Terraheim's progression. Currently, two armor sets have been integrated.


If you have Judes_Equipment mod installed, it has been fully incorporated into Terraheim. The barbarian armor set provides several bonuses to throwing weapons as well as some interesting tertiary effects like a stacking move speed buff on kill and increased damage against low health targets. The Plate set allows you to store blocked damage, which is released whenever you are staggered! Giving you some much needed breathing room. The Nomad set is based around money, enemies struck will occasionally drop coins, which boost your damage. Every time you attack, however, a coin is used.

Chosen Armor

The Chaos Armor Set by AeehyehssReeper has been integrated into Terraheim as the Chosen armor set. This Berserkr armor grants great strength, should those malignent eyes find you worthy... enter image description here

Utility Items

Currently five utility items have been added:

  • Aescfell Belt: Increased damage vs trees
  • Stánbrysan Belt: Increased damage vs ores
  • Eorðtilia Belt: Harvest additional flora from bushes and crops
  • Stulor Belt: Increased sneak speed and less sneak stamina use
  • Casul Belt: Immunity to the wet ailment


Terraheim is highly customizable as the effectiveness, material costs, and almost every armor stat can be tweaked in the balance.json file. Weapons can be adjusted and disabled in the weaponBalance.json file. Flametal weapons' special effects can be tweaked and disabled there as well. Changes to armor sets can also be disabled.

You can even change out what armor sets have what set effect! If you want the bronze armor set to have ranged damage or Wyrdarrow, you can! Just note that set effects are seperate from standard armor effects, so you can't assign Thorns to a helmet, it has to be the set bonus. You can view the effect ids on the balance sheet, there are several unimplemented effects there if you want to experiment a bit.

Bow Balance - To prevent bowmen from being the be all end all class, the bow weapon type has been slightly nerfed by halving movement speed while the bow is drawn. This can be mitigated by wearing silver armor, or if you don't like it at all, you can remove it by setting "baseBowDrawMoveSpeeed" to 1 in the balance.json file.


There seems to be an incompatibility with ValheimLibOpenDatabasePatch.dll. Unfortunately I can't do anything about this issue, sorry. TripleBronze also appears to be incompatible. EpicLoot is compatible but when you reforge an enchanted piece of armor, it will lose that enchantment until you relog/reload your world. A more graceful fix is coming. There are some compatability issues with specific enchantments however. Greatswords with the Attack Speed enchant will not have the terraheim speed changes applied. Throwable Greataxes will impact almost immediately.

Future Plans

Flametal armor sets for each class EpicLoot version with tweaked balance

Known Issues

The blackmetal pickaxe is using the old script for terrain deformation, so a lot of terraforming with it might lag out your game.
