When a PC video game enjoys an overwhelming success like the one Valheim is enjoying, it is normal that day in and day out more and more mods also appear that offer new ways of enjoying the experience, either with graphic changes, new management options, or as in the case that concerns us now, with a renewed loot system that seeks to resemble the Valheim experience to that of games more typical of the Diablo-style.
Tired of slaughtering enemies to get just a few resources? Eager to get a great hatchet or a sword with unique powers? Epic Loot is the answer to your pleas. “This mod seeks to add a loot system similar to that of Diablo or other RPGs”, reads its official description, so “monsters and chests can now drop magical, rare, epic or legendary items . Each magical item has various special effects , which grant bonuses to the item itself or to your character when equipped “.
The mod is still in development, but you can download it at Nexus Mod to get the first taste of this new loot system. “Be patient as the author adds new features, fixes bugs and finalizes other things,” they warn in the description of this additional content that adds to many other mods that have been appearing in recent weeks.
Thanks to this mod you will be able to get unique equipment with different effects, since it is possible to find armor that enhances fortune when it comes to finding more and better raw materials, or equipment that allows you to gain experience faster, or weapons that increase the blocking options, which do more damage if you hit in a certain way, etc. Epic Loot also introduces a new workshop to create these same combat tools using various rune combinations.
