Valheim: Best World Seeds You Need To Try Right Now
Valheim is a game full of Norse-themed monsters. But these world seeds are critical for everyone from speedrunners to hermits and more.
Valheim released its early access earlier this year, and since then, it has been on the top of Steam charts, selling nearly 7 million copies on Steam. One of the aspects that makes this game so successful is its crafting mechanism. You’ll have to explore different biomes to look for food and materials to survive and become the best Viking in this purgatory.
But before you can do any of that, you’ll have to select in which world you would want to start your adventure. The game does that by asking players to type in their own Valheim world seeds or letting the game choose one for them. Each seed is a series of letters and numbers that create a procedurally generated world with resources, biomes, and enemies differently distributed in each one of them.
Updated June 8, 2021, by Miguel Amaro: Some time has passed since Valheim’s early access released back in February. With each day that passes, players get more comfortable with creating mods to spice things up, building mind-blowing structures, and finding the perfect seed to live out their Viking fantasies. While the ideal game world will highly depend on how you like to play, we’ve added a few more of Valheim’s best seeds that you should totally check out.
Best Valheim Seeds
Because each seed creates a world that’s completely different from the rest, you should check the list below to find out which Valheim seeds are better for speedrunners or which ones are better for mining; after all, the seed you choose should be in line with your gameplay preferences.
Seed: htsE7kJL5K – Perfect For Those Who Want An Island All To Themselves
Sometimes all you need is your own personal island isolated from everything to really think things through and have a slow pace experience. Not only that but Valheim’s biomes are filled with aggressive creatures that can show up to your base at any moment and destroy everything you’ve built.
It doesn’t matter the reason behind it; if you want a piece of land just for you, this seed is what you’ve been looking for. You’ll spawn on a relatively small island in the middle of the sea, with the nearest boss being Eikthyr. With this seed, you can really channel your inner Viking by building a ship and sailing away to discover new lands.
Seed: philosophy – Perfect For Those Who Want It All
After exploring a couple of Valheim seeds, you’ll realize some things that could make your experience really enjoyable or really frustrating. When selecting your game world, you should take into consideration factors like:
- Bosses location
- Maypole availability
- Trader location
- Starter island size
Depending on your playstyle, you might favor some things over others. However, if you just want it all, which means a seed with a huge starting island, that has all the bosses in it and also has two Maypoles, then you’ll want to check out this seed.
Seed: HHcLC5acQt – Perfect For Speedrunners
This seed looks like the perfect one for all of Valheim’s speedrunners out there. In this world seed, players will spawn in a starter island with four runes, a nearby trader, and all bosses close by. Moreover, all of the biomes are in the same starter continent, and the 5th boss is as close as a raft skip away.
Seed: 0V5BZHkqY4 – Perfect For Those Who Hate Sailing
It doesn’t matter how good you think you are in this game; eventually, you’ll have to learn how to build a ship in order to sail and discover other biomes (and materials!). The thing is that sailing has a learning curve; you’ll need first to find the ingredients to make a vessel, then learn the differences between the three types of boats available ( a Raft, Longship, or Karve) and even know how to use the wind to your advantage. If all of these weren’t enough, once you’re in the water, you’ll have to look out for the terrifying serpents the lurk in the ocean.
So it’s understandable that some Valheim players want to enjoy the game without having to be bothered by sailing. If your one of them, good news! Seed 0V5BZHkqY4 is perfect for those who would rather avoid water as the starter island stretch across the entire map, so getting around from one biome to the other won’t be too much trouble.
Seed: maypoleplz – Perfect For Those Who Just Want A Little Help
In a game that focuses on crafting and surviving, all the help you can get is well received. So to help out their newbie players, Valheim’s developers added a rare structure to the game called Maypole. The catch? This type of furniture will only be available in some Valheim world seeds and can’t be crafted by players.
Using the seed maypoleplz, you’ll spawn in a world that has Maypole to the west. This means that if you build a base around this structure, your character gets an additional 1 comfort when resting in the area.
Seed: t9n3WG6dFk – Perfect For Those Who Want Iron
Arguably, Iron is one of the best resources in the game, the problem is that it is not that easy to come by, there’s a lot you’ll need to do before it becomes accessible, and it’s only available in the Swamp biome. However, once you’ve unlocked Scrap iron, you can drop it in the smelter to get Iron and start crafting top tiers weapons and armor (which you’ll need for the later game’s stages).
So if you’re super into Iron farming, use the seed t9n3WG6dFk as it’s one of the Valheim seeds that has a massive Swamp biome filled with Sunken Crypts you can explore and Muddy Scrap Piles ready to be mined. But before you equip your pickaxe and get to work, make sure you have the Wishbone equipped as it will make the Muddy Scrap Piles way easier to find.
Seed: 42069lolxd – Perfect For Those Who Want To Trade With Haldor
While this seed’s name is unfortunate, rest assure it is legit, and it works as intended. This seed creates a world where Haldor, Valheim’s merchant, is super close to the spawn point. All you have to do is head East from your spawn point, follow the South coast, and then cross the water all the way till you get to the Black Forest biome.
Once you find Haldor, you can use coins to purchase things like the yule hat, the Dverger circlet, a Fishing Rod and many more. You can also sell him things like amber, rubies, amber pearls, and silver necklace in exchange for, you guessed it, coins. Also, consider dropping a portal nearby Haldor’s location so it’ll be easier to come by and revisit him.
Seed: IX7JpLYpLd – Perfect For Those Who Don’t Like To Travel Far
One of the main features that pull players to play Valheim is the fact that once you land, you have this vast world filled with treats and secrets ready for you to explore. However, some players want to experience what this game has to offer without having to commit to extensive hours of traveling just to get from one biome to another.
Luckily, Valheim seeds like IX7JpLYpLd have a nice archipelago where all the bosses are on the same mass of land and near each other; this cuts on traveling time and makes things a little easier for you.
Seed: CdjvRssbHZ – Perfect For Those Who Are Just Starting Out
Hey, Viking life is all about conquering new territories and fighting in epic battles. However, there’s no shame in wanting to keep things safe and slow, especially if it’s the first time you play this game. That’s why if you’re a new player, you might want to use the seed CdjvRssbHZ as it will spawn your character on an island that only has the Meadows biome, which is the safer of them all. This way, you can take your time building your base in this area before considering going on to the next biome.

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider Ending & Post-Credits Scene Explained
The Shadow of the Tomb Raider ending fittingly concludes the franchise’s reboot trilogy. Here’s a quick explanation about what it all means.
With Shadow of the Tomb Raider now upon us, many fans of the series have been looking to see exactly how Eidos Montreal has decided to finish off the rebooted trilogy started by Crystal Dynamics. Lara Croft’s adventures have taken on a much more dramatic turn this time around, with a greater emphasis on emotional impact and an attempt to distill a sense of realism into the actions of characters, if not the supernatural bent of the plot itself.
It’s been a careful tightrope to walk, at first expertly driven by writer Rhianna Pratchett. However, new writer Jill Murray has been able to carefully build the plot of Tomb Raider with this third title in the series, following on from the seeds of narrative lain in 2015’s Rise of the Tomb Raider. The fantastical elements of the plot tied up in Lara’s ongoing fight with the mysterious Order of Trinity come to a head, but those players who missed some of the story beats when instead keeping focus on the game’s actual tombs might have been left scratching their heads.
Because of this, some gamers might want a bit of a cheat sheet to help them understand the end of the game in its entirety, so read on to find out more about the end of Shadow of the Tomb Raider, explaining exactly what happens to Lara Croft. Of course, spoilers are right ahead, so avoid reading on if you don’t want to find out about the end of the game.
Near the end of the plot, things look dark for Lara Croft. The Order of Trinity holds both elements to allow them to remake the world, with Lara having lost both the Key of Chak Chel and the Silver Box of Ix Chel. However, all is not lost, with the player tasked with stopping the ritual in its tracks, and at the same time bringing justice to the man who killed her father – Doctor Dominguez, aka Amaru.
Lara teams up with the rebels of the hidden Peruvian city of Paititi, but while the rebels attempt a more direct assault, Croft takes a more stealthy approach. That leads her back up into the territory of the Yaaxil, an aggressive tribe that were part of some of the most tense moments in the game up to that point – worse than even those pre-release gameplay demos. However, with the tribe under attack by Trinity, Lara realizes that they also play an important part in fulfilling a prophecy to reignite the sun. As such, a team-up in on the cards, with Lara joining forces with tribe leader Crimson Fire against Trinity, taking on the roles of Ix Chel and Chak Chel, respectively.
This leads Lara on a dangerous path to try and reach the summit where Amaru and the rest of Trinity’s High Council are completing the ritual, with the player eventually reaching the site. Unfortunately, this comes a little too late, with the ceremony nearing its end. However, Lara is able to stop the attempt halfway, leading to a fearsome encounter with Amaru, who has now been infused with the power of the god Kukulkan.
Also, blessed with the power of Kukulkan by stopping the ritual midway, Lara takes on Amaru head on, defeating him, and getting rid of the rest of the High Council of Trinity at the same time. Croft takes up the Key itself, allowing her to complete the ritual to stop the eclipse and reignite the sun. At this point, Lara is shown a vision of her family, happy together. As part of the possibility of remaking the world, Lara could be reunited with her family again, having lost her mother and father – the latter to assassination by the Order of Trinity.
Lara resists the temptation, though, and does not use the Key and Silver Box. Instead, she leaves her family behind, and is met by the Crimson Fire waiting for her. There’s still one part of the ritual to complete – the killing of the god Kukulkan. Lara, now infused with the power of the god herself, lies down on the sacrificial table, and allows the Crimson Fire to drag the light of Kukulkan from within her.
Those wondering if Lara could survive the ordeal are given an answer immediately. After a brief jump forward in time of a couple of days, Lara is at the funeral of Unuratu, the former leader of the Paititi rebels, before the action-archaeologist decides to embark on a new journey back to civilization for a while. Leaving long-time companion Jonah to continue exploring for himself with mechanic extraordinaire and romantic interest Abby, Lara instead heads back home, wanting to “be around the living” for a while.
After the credits roll, Lara is back at her mansion, explaining that she “had it all wrong” about what was important about gathering important artifacts from around the world. Instead, she is there at her desk, surrounded by things that remind her of family; for now, at least, she’s steering clear of any more adventures.
That brings this summary of the finale of Shadow of the Tomb Raider to an end. The end of game game feels like a fitting end to the trilogy, but at the same time required a little bit of digging to keep track of the different story strands. Equally, it leaves the door open for more Tomb Raider games in the future, as all it needs is for Lara Croft to decide to go exploring some crypts once more.
