Valheim

Valheim is a brutal exploration and survival game for 1-10 players, set in a procedurally-generated purgatory inspired by viking culture. Battle, build, and conquer your way to a saga worthy of Odin’s patronage!

  1. Become a Patron of DomiNATION Gaming

When I join the game, it says I’m banned

Don’t worry, this is the game trying to tell you that you’re not whitelisted. Make sure you are whitelisted on our Patreon Ark servers as described above. It could take a few minutes before whitelist changes are propagated to Valheim.

I want to team up

Be sure to drop it in the #valheim Discord channel. There’s also a voice channel dedicated to the game there.

I need an admin

Sadly, the game doesn’t offer much functionality for admins at the moment, other than banning or kicking players. Try getting help from a fellow player!

Server Restarts / Updates

Restarts are scheduled every night, at 10 AM UTC. That’s 5 AM EST in the winter, and 6 AM EST in the summer. The server also auto-updates whenever an update is detected on Steam. Restarts are automatically performed without warning, since there is no RCON support (yet), so there is no way of warning in-game that a restart is incoming.
