One clever Valheim warrior has created a useful Portal Room that even the Allfather would be proud of.
Portals in Valheim can be one of the most efficient ways to get around the map. From hauling resources to zipping around each biome, players think with portals in a way that likely impress Valve, itself. Infact, one has even come forward with their take on a functioning Portal Room right in their home base.
Valheim Player Creates Portal Room
In a post on Reddit’s Valheim subreddit board published on Feb.19, user Alcarintur uploaded a video showcasing what appears to be a hall build to house several portals just a few paces from their home base hut.
The hall, itself, is made entirely of wood and postioned a few feet above the ground—held up by trees and accessible by a couple flights of stairs. As one commenter pointed out, it has a particular Lord of the Rings feel, remarking, “Are we in Lothlorien?”
“An inspiration for sure!” Alcarintur replied.
Others appeared impressed by Alcarintur’s building ability, praising them for their style and placement.
“Are we playing the same game?” One user asked, to which another answered, “Right? I am just here with a big box of a house.”
Perhaps the most exciting development for some was the revelation that trees can be used as alternative forms of above-ground support. Players swapped knowledge in one thread, detailing how both trees and rocks could be used in place of pillars for a bit of lofty aid. While a few wrote mischievous comments about the possibility of those supports being axed, they were then informed of the existence of invulnerable trees—primarily in the Swamp.
“There are some trees in the swamp that are invulnerable, or so I’ve heard,” wrote user ArcaneEyes.
“There are. Source: spending an entire axe chopping a thicc swamp trunk,” user gohmthebard replied.
Here’s hoping passersby take in the majesty of Alcarintur’s handiwork rather than indulging in curiosity over the strength of its arboreal supports.
