Valheim has another patch, and it seems that it’s a big one. According to the developer team, this patch should address plenty of bugs and problems. You get to teach the ballista to shoot at specific targets as well, by “feeding” it with a trophy of a creature that you want it to attack.

Developers also cite that two new items have been added to the game. One is a hexagonal gate (as seen in Dvergr strongholds within Mistlands) and the other is a Fishing Hat. Prima Games delivers all of the news about these Patch Notes for Valheim 0.213.4 below.

  • Players can now “use” a trophy on ballistas to limit what it will shoot at

  • New item: Fishing hat

  • Fishing bait recipes and the fishing bait sold from Haldor are now 20 instead of 40 (This change was made due to the fishing bait return change mentioned above)
