The main goal of Valheim ties directly in to the way you will progress in the game. Your goal is to defeat Odin’s greatest enemies, known as the forsaken. These can also be called the ‘bosses’ of Valheim. Before being able to advance to the next tier of equipment and unlock new materials, you will generally have to defeat the next forsaken.
Cutting down trees is probably going to be one of the first things you do in Valheim. You will need wood for just about everything including crafting weapons, boats and of course building yourself a nice shelter to stay out of the rain. One mechanic players are having a lot of fun with it the fact that falling trees can and will do damage. When you cut down a tree in the game it will fall. Falling trees can kill.

islanders. You’ll decide whether to help them revitalize the town or not.”
This guide will teach you how to teleport in Valheim using the console commands and inputting coordinates and also how to figure out the coordinates of where you are currently standing.

You must be admin of the current server/world in order to use the cheat commands.
One things players may not realize is that you can deconstruct crafting stations and structures if you aren’t happy with them. To deconstruct items and structures equip the hammer tool.

In Valheim defeating strong boss level creatures will award you with a forsaken power. Once you have chosen a forsaken power you can activate it by pressing the ‘F’ key by default. Check the control scheme in your settings menu if the F key does not work. Keep in mind that you must first defeat a forsaken creature such as Eikthyr, the first forsaken. Once they are defeated, you must take their trophy to the summoning stones where you first started your journey.
In Valheim there are different types of wood which have different properties and uses. The first wood you will find in the game which is the most common type is merely called wood. This is used for fires, construction and tools. Once you’ve scrounged together some items and beaten the first boss, you will be able to get some Fine Wood.
