Great for beginners – Top 5 Valheim Armor – Best armor in Valheim

Here are the best weapons in Valheim, allowing players to engage in any battle with the strongest tools possible at their disposal.

Weapons can be said to be one of the indispensable elements in survival games in particular and action-role-playing games in general. And for sure, Valheim is not an exception.


1. Valheim leather armor

You can only wear a rag tunic and pants for so long. If you’re looking for something more durable, but haven’t had the chance to fully explore your island, then Leather armor is for you.

The entire set requires 22 deer hide, and five bone fragments, so you’ll want to craft a crude bow (Wood x10, Leather Scraps x8) and hunt for these skittish animals. Remember, you need a Valheim workbench to begin crafting armor.

  • Leather helmet: Deer hide x6
  • Leather tunic: Deer hide x6
  • Leather pants: Deer hide x6
  • Deer hide cape: Deer hide x6, bone fragments x5

2. Valheim troll armor: Feeling blue

If your leather armor isn’t quite cutting it, and you feel brave enough to venture into the Black Forest, it’s time to update your wardrobe with a splash of blue. Trolls wander around in the forest, and while they’re keen to swing their club your way, they’re quite slow. Equip a bow, keep your distance, and attack them from afar. If you manage to collect 25 troll hide, you can craft the troll armor set for a cheeky 25 percent boost to your Sneak stats. This set also calls for some bone fragments, which are dropped by skeletons, and found in Burial Chambers.

  • Troll leather helmet: Troll hide x5, bone fragments x3
  • Troll leather tunic: Troll hide x5
  • Troll leather pants: Troll hide x5
  • Troll hide cape: Troll hide x10, bone fragments x10

3. Valheim bronze armor: Shine bright

Sitting on a cache of Valheim copper and tin? Put your metals to good use at a forge to make bronze. Not only can you make a sturdy new pickaxe and sword, if you have 15 bronze and six deer hide, you can make a full set of shiny armor. This provides better protection than troll and leather variants, but it will slow you down.

  • Bronze helmet: Bronze x5, deer hide x2
  • Bronze plate cuirass: Bronze x5, deer hide x2
  • Bronze plate leggings: Bronze x5, deer hide x2

4. Valheim iron armor: Now you’re a knight

Bronze armor is ideal for getting you through some early Valheim boss fights, but you need something stronger if you want to test your skills against the strongest enemies in Viking purgatory. 

Valheim iron armor is the next step up, but the materials required for this recipe aren’t easy to come across. You’ll need to pay the Swamp a visit to mine scrap iron, then smelt a whopping 60 bars before you can craft this set.

  • Iron helmet: Iron x20, deer hide x2
  • Iron scale mail: Iron x20, deer hide x2
  • Iron greaves: Iron x20, deer hide x2

5. Valheim wolf armor: Frosty furs

You’ve likely seen streamers showing off their fancy wolf armor. This set is the peak of Norse fashion, but it’s also functional.

The fluffy cape, chest piece, and leggings will protect you from the bitter wind in the Mountains. I recommend equipping an iron helmet to round off your build, as this set doesn’t feature one.

  • Wolf armor chest: Silver x20, wolf pelt x5, chain x1
  • Wolf armor leggings: Silver x20, wolf pelt x5, wolf fang x4
  • Wolf fur cape: Silver x4, wolf pelt x6, wolf trophy x1

Synthesize and rank special weapons in Valheim

Frostner is a blunt weapon, capable of repelling (knockback) most effective in Valheim. It also causes a freeze effect, slowing all enemy attacks. All of these factors make Frostner one of the most popular melee weapons in the game.

B-Tier weapon

Stagbreaker can be said to be one of the most powerful weapons in the early game, extremely suitable for beginners. To own this deer, you just need to defeat Eikthyr, a giant deer capable of using lightning in the beginning of the game and a few Deer Trophy (deer head).

So you can craft yourself a ‘god’ hammer that can both cause wide area damage (AoE), and can repel enemies. Not only that, Stagbreaker is also very suitable for dungeon battles and dungeons (dungeon, crypt).
