Valheim: mod Skyheim brings Skyrim-style magic to survival PC


If you've completed most of Valheim's content and want to spice up survival, there's a new mod that might interest you. Let's talk about Skyheim, a mod that introduces a Skyrim-style magical system into the game. Also, in order to get the spells you don't just have to install the mod and enter the game, but you have to defeat the bosses again.

The Skyheim mod makes the bosses in Valheim drop new items, that is materials needed for the creation of runic magic. The player must then face the various game bosses several times with the aim of obtaining a sufficient number of resources to create all the spells. The spells are original, but the style and name of the mod is a clear reference to Skyrim.

It is also important to know that the Skyheim mod does not only introduce combat spells, but also a series of indirect spells very useful. For example, there is the possibility of creating a magical light source, increasing the speed of movement, creating areas of healing for oneself and for one's allies. There is also the option to call the Valkyries to be teleported to the spawn point.

The mod isn't perfect, it must be said. There are some audio issues, but overall it seems to be a lot of fun to use. According to reports, it makes Valheim combat more varied without making it too simple. There is in fact a mana bar and in addition, the most powerful spells in Skyheim have a cooldown. Also, in order to make them more effective you need to use them several times.

You can download this Valheim mod on NexusMods, at this address. We also point out that this fan has built a bridge to get to the End of the World by walking. Don't miss out on HD Texture Pack, the mod that improves 255 textures.

This Valheim mod adds Skyrim-style magic, and it's a blast

Ok, so you've beaten Eitkthyr and a bunch of the other bosses - and you may be wondering if there's any point in going back to revisit them. In the vanilla game there's little reason to do so, as you won't gain any new rewards. But as ever... there's a mod for that.

Skyheim is a magic mod for Valheim that introduces a bunch of new spells and abilities to spice up combat, all neatly tied into the game's progression system. Each boss will drop items that can be used to craft rune spells, so you'll need to repeat boss fights to gather sufficient resources to craft them all. Here's a video showing off a couple of the spells, and what the crafting process looks like:

Trying out Skyheim - a Valheim magic mod

The style of spells available in the mod reminded me quite a bit of the basic spells in Skyrim, and and I'm assuming the 'Sky' in the mod name is probably a nod to the Elder Scrolls game. Although I imagine most people will immediately reach for the fireball spell, it's worth noting this mod adds plenty of helpful spells that aren't directly related to combat. The Light spell allows you to summon a glowing orb to illuminate the way, Travel increases your movement speed, and there's an area of effect healing spell to help both you and your buddies. There's even a Recall spell to call in the Valkyries to teleport the player back to spawn - the equivalent of Gandalf calling in the eagles, I suppose.

1It wouldn't be fair to leave all the spell-casting to the shamans, would it?

I experimented with the mod a fair bit myself, and although some of the audio effects are a little funky, the mod does add a fun new dimension to Valheim's combat without making things too easy. To prevent the spells from being overpowered, the mod introduces a 'mana' bar, and the more powerful spells have fairly lengthy cooldowns. As with any skill in Valheim, you'll also need to practise the spells to increase your proficiency in that type of magic. So I guess it's time to start toasting all the poor critters in the meadows. If only using a fireball on wild boar would drop ready-cooked meat.

The mod already has a fair number of spells available, but it seems mod author makzimus isn't quite done yet: a chain lightning spell has just been added to the mix, and makzimus is considering ways for players to upgrade their mana pool. The author's answer to a request for a resurrection spell is currently 'maybe', but it sure would reduce demand for Valheim's Body Recovery Squad.

If all this sounds magical to you, the mod is available for download on Nexus Mods and As with most Valheim mods, you'll need to install BepInEx first and then install the Skyheim DLL into the BepInEx plugin folder - you can find the download page for that over here.
