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.
Its ya boy, back at it again at the mountains

Weapons and Tools

Nine new weapons and tools have been added with the goal of filling in the gaps in each tier.


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 delete the Terraheim.dll 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 'uptiered,' 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 three classes:


Berserkr's have a focus on dodging, axe 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.

Barbarian Armor

If you have the Barbarian Armor 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.

You can view the full values for each set across every 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 forge. 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!
Note that to reforge padded armor, you have to use the Artisan Table asides from the forge or workbench.

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 in the weaponBalance.json file.
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.
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.

Future Plans

Flametal armor sets and weapons for each class
EpicLoot version with tweaked balance

Known Issues

These mods compliment Terraheim by adding new weapons and rebalancing mechanics.

- The first attack for greatswords has been sped up by 20%.
- The rest of the greatswords attack combo has been sped up 40%.
- Added field in balance.json to disable the Marked For Death FX until I can find a proper solution for the black void bug.
- Fixed bug where greatswords animation speed tweaks would not apply, leading to inconsistent attack timing.
- Fixed bug where thorns would do crazy amounts of damage to bosses. This has had the side effect of thorns damage being calc'd after armor damage reduction, so to compensate, thorns reflect % is now 110%.
- Fixed wolftears 1 hit protection triggering in non-applicaple cases
- Fixed status effects reading from the last instance of that effect. This fixes the issue with the bronze armor using the padded armor's values for its damage bonus.

- Fixed reforging not consuming previous armor
- Fixed missing requirements for reforging
- Fixed Poisoned Iron Throwing axe's damages. 75 Slash -> 30 Slash, 20 Poison

- Wolftears has recieved some love too. For starters, it's max damage bonus has been upped to +50% at 20% hp. Also every 4 minutes (260 seconds) if you take lethal damage, you will survive at 1hp.
- The thorns set effect will now kill enemies that are below 50% hp.
- You can now configure armor set's effects in the balance.json! This means you can swap around individual effects to your pleasure. Want bronze to have ranged damage, go ahead and change it!
- Fixed armor VFX sticking around after the armor set had been removed
- Fixed the leather armor set bonus not scaling
- Loosened restrictions on folder naming conventions and locations, this should improve Terraheim's ability to be integrated into modpacks.

- Fixed Wolftears description values and it's damage bonus calculation

- Material costs for upgrading armor has been increased to reflect this.
- Greatsword block bonuses have been reduced in order to make the parry bonus a bit less strong.
