Valheim: built the tower of Sauron, the effect is mammoth

Valheim

Here we are again with the "column" on the mammoth buildings in Valheim, the new phenomenon of 2021. Just yesterday we showed you how a guy on the official Reddit profile had posted the Millennium Falcon in Viking version. It is therefore not surprising that the creativity of gamers continues to evolve, and this is precisely what happened today because someone has reproduced the Tower of Sauron from the universe of The Lord of the Rings.

Per those unfamiliar with the title, it is in effect an action RPG with Viking-themed survival elements. It is not yet clear how Valheim managed to become a real phenomenon on Steam in a few weeks, the fact is that today the title is grinding record after record, touching half a million users connected last week. The success has led to a huge amount of video tutorials to start your adventure in the best way, managing to bring even those not accustomed to the genre.

The main objective is obviously not to build mammoth works , but to survive by defeating creatures from Norse mythology. However, many enthusiasts are having fun proposing some truly impressive works, the latest of which is the tower of Sauron. The video, which we will leave you right here below, really leaves you speechless, the modder even managed to represent the fearsome eye, a symbol of power and fear for all of Middle-earth. No more chatting, we let you enjoy the video in peace, good viewing.

    valheim sword vs axe


    In total, there are five axes that can be crafted in Valheim. These include the Stone Axe, Flint Axe, Iron Axe, Black Metal Axe, and the Bronze Axe. For this guide though, we’re only going to be looking at the stats of the Iron Axe, and the Black Metal Axe. These are the fourth and fifth axe type that become available to players and are able to rival the sword in terms of stats.


    The first axe we’re going to look at is the Iron Axe, which can be crafted using wood, iron, and leather scraps. Similar to the swords, the axes also have four different quality types.


    Iron Axe Quality 1: 

  • Durability = 175
  • Slash = 55
  • Parry Force = 20
  • Crafting Recipe = Wood x4, Iron x20, Leather Scraps x2
  • Forge Level 2
  • Iron Axe Quality 2: 

  • Durability = 225
  • Slash = 60
  • Parry Force = 25
  • Crafting Recipe = Iron x10, Leather Scraps x1
  • Forge Level 3
  • Iron Axe Quality 3: 

  • Durability = 275
  • Slash = 65
  • Parry Force = 30
  • Crafting Recipe = Iron x20, Leather Scraps x2

  • Iron Axe Quality 4:

  • Which Is Best For Combat?

    So who comes out on top in the Valheim sword vs axe debate? Well, in terms of the stats, the Black Metal Axe is capable of much higher slash than the Iron Sword. However, using the Black Metal Axe means forfeiting the ability to parry. If you choose to use a sword over an axe, this means you’ll be able to make use of the special ability that can do increased damage and stun mobs by pressing the middle mouse button.


    The axe offers dual functionality of not only being able to chop down trees but also deal damage to mobs. However, in terms of pure combat, we’d recommend a sword. Not only is the sword lighter and quicker to swing, but the special ability of stunning enemies and dealing high damage makes it a no brainer.
