Hey everyone! I've got some theories about where the game might be going, and why I think that's the case.
So you know how they're looking to add 4 more bosses to the game? Well, so far, each boss has been associated with a particular biome.
- Meadows: Eikthyr
- Black Forest: Elder
- Swamp: Bonemass
- Mountain: Moðer
- Plains: Yagluth
So that leaves four biomes and four bosses to match up. We know three are in development: Mistlands, Ashlands, and Deep North. But I'd argue we know the last one as well: the Ocean.
So who would we fight there? I think that
I think the ocean is the next most obvious one:
Then there's the Mistlands. There's a realm in Norse mythology called Niflheim, which literally means "mist land." Here is where the roots of the World Tree live. And here,
Last is the North, which I think is based on Jotunheim. Here, I think comes our ultimate test, fighting a frost giant. But not any frost giant;
All of these boss options are based on actual figures from Norse mythology, while the existing bosses are only distantly related (Eikthyr), if related at all (Bonemass), to actual entities from Norse Mythology. When I say that we'd be fighting these figures, I mean that we might be fighting anything from the actual figure from mythology, or just an interpretation of them in the world of Valheim, possibly with a completely different name.
I'm not totally sure the direction the devs will go with biomes. We might have all the biomes we're gonna get, and features like "tar pits" will be added to them. Or they might be their own biomes altogether, which would warrant their own boss.
There's also the
But what we have now coincides nicely with defeating 9 bosses for the 9 realms in Norse Mythology.
What do you think? And what are your predictions/hopes for future bosses and biomes?
