How to stop freezing damage in Valheim

You can stop shivering.

For anyone who has attempted to climb any of the snowy mountains in Valheim, you quickly come to understand that performing such a feat is a challenge. Without the proper equipment, you’ll face freezing winds that do damage over time to you, and that damage stacks up pretty quickly, even if you have the best food in the game. There are a few ways to prevent your character from freezing or taking any damage.

How to make frost resistance mead

One of the more straightforward methods is to make a frost resistance mead. It’s a mead brew that you can place into your fermenter and drink while you’re on the mountain. The beverage does not take up any of your three stomach charges so that it won’t add to your health and stamina. The effects last for 10 minutes, making it easier to explore a mountain to conquer some of the deadly foes you might find up there. Frost resistance mead is a suitable method, but it goes away, and it can be costly because of the resources it requires. These are all of the ingredients you need to make it, and you need to be at a cauldron over a fire when you make it.

The thistle will probably take the most difficult ingredient, alongside honey, unless you have beehives constructed near your base. The bloodbags and Greydwarf eyes are fairly common.

Frost resistance equipment

If you don’t want to invest in the resources and time to frost resistance mead, several items that frost resistance built into them—notably, the wolf armor chest, the wolf fur cape, and the lox cape. Of the items available, the wolf fur cap and the lox fur cape are the cheapest, with the wolf armor chest requiring the most silver, which is a precious resource you can find in the Mountains biome using the wishbone.

These are the ingredients to make the lox cape, and you must be at a level two crafting station.

  • 6 Lox Pelt
  • 2 Silver

These are the ingredients you need to make the wolf fur cape, and you must also be at level two crafting station to make it.

  • 6 Wolf Pelt
  • 4 Silver
  • 1 Wolf Trophy

While wearing any of these three items, you can freely explore the mountain region without needing any frost resistance mead. However, that doesn’t mean you can forget about the mead.

How to stop taking freezing damage while wet

While your character is wet, you will always take freezing damage even if you wear any of the frost resistance items or you have frost resistance mead effect going. But you combine the two, by having any of the items on your character and the frost resistance mead, you will not take any freezing damage. This also means if you have the wolf fur chest and any of the capes on, you will not take freezing damage while wet.
