##Additional Credit:

Furok and Grim Age mod team created the original models and textures used in this mod, I just re-rigged the model and did some other tweaks for use in Valheim. Grim Age is a mod based on Warhammer Fantasy, and as such should be considered a Derivative Work to which Games Workshop holds copyright to. Games Workshop's copyright thus extends to the models and textures used in this mod.

Adds Chaos Warrior Armor as a new standalone set of armor to the game. Armor names and descriptions are kept fairly vague and don't outright refer to anything from Warhammer lore, if that matters to you.

Recipes can be viewed and adjusted in ReepusDeepusDelmeepus4902761.ChaosArmor.cfg. Default configs are set such that each tier requires the previous tier's armor pieces.

  • slight buff to T5 Variant B effect trigger thresholds


  • T5 sets with tenatively finalized recipes
    • minimum black forge level for crafting increased to 5, intention that they cannot be upgraded past base level currently


  • PTB-specific stat buffs for stamina usage
    • won't have any effect off of PTB


  • some kneejerk tweaks after entering ashlands in ptb
    • mostly a buff to stamina recovery trigger on Variant B; should trigger at least a small recovery after most biome-appropriate hits now
    • switched old flametal prefab to the new and added one other ptb material to recipe


  • preparing for ashlands full release, added standard-line upgrade and divided experimental armor effects across a few different pieces in the set
    • crafting recipes likely to change with full release; just using flametal for now for backwards compat with non-ptb 12.1.3
  • adjusted waist proportions and rigging


  • localization issues should be addressed; fixed a tab that shouldn't have been in bundled localization template and removed trailing newline from description key for EliteChaosPlateArmorTzeentch


  • PTB fix which appears backwards compatible with live


  • reenabled blacksmith's tools usage and updated dependency for it


  • updated for latest patch
  • temporary removal of blacksmith's tools 2.0.2 from dependencies, will re-add once updated

  • fixed minor bug in shield threshold logic


  • slightly deepened color saturation of experimental set


  • added experimental post-mistlands set
    • currently uses queen drops as placeholder
    • armor stats lower than Animated set, but chest piece has unique gimmicks
      • instantly regenerates flat amount of Eitr depending on damage taken (after armor reduction) or if damage was blocked
      • autogenerates a blood shield depending on threshold of damage taken (after armor reduction)
        • strength and duration of blood shield scales to an extent with current Eitr, but is still active on non-Eitr builds


  • tweak to assetbundle loading, added some error handling


  • intermediate step of optimization pass, chestpieces should be less resource-intensive now
    • overall file size did need to be increased for now, but runtime performance should theoretically be a bit better


  • added clanking to all tiers of armor by default
    • can be disabled in ReepusDelmeepus.ChaosArmorClank.cfg (separate from main file, lazy, sorry) - client-side setting only, not synced with server
  • if still using IAmClanka for clanking effects on other armors, update IAmClanka to 0.0.13 for compatibility (no duplicate clanking sounds on chaos armor)

  • updated ItemManager
    • damage type resist configs are working as expected now from ItemManager update (thanks blaxxun)
    • default config bundled with 10.0.6 to overwrite potentially wrong config settings from 10.0.4

    • all armor sets now follow the vanilla 4 quality level standard

  • new crafting recipes requires beginning with the bronze tier armor and reforging it up to the final tier
  • final tier upgrade/craft recipes adjusted slightly, but existing crafted sets from previous versions will remain at their quality level

  • added cold resist to chestpiece
  • rebuilt assembly from new project yet again

  • added new config options
  • rebuilt dll from new project, praying to god this stamps out any assembly loading issues; will retain loose assetbundle version on Nexus for some time in case not
  • low res texture version available on Nexus, just overwrite ChaosArmor.dll with the .dll provided in that optional file; texture replacement should be client-side and the rest of the code is up-to-date with main file

  • adjusted recipe/upgrade amounts to be more varied
  • small mesh adjustments:
    • covered up a small gap between the right arm and breastplate with filler material
    • positioned helmet further forward to closer match player character posture (no longer clips with head in character select screen)
  • bunch of cool changes courtesy of zarboz
    • mesh rigging of body matches player posture much better now - unfortunately not enough to prevent clipping, hence Blacksmith's tools remains a requirements
    • on-equip status effects with a special cheesy message for each armor piece, see Gear Stats Breakdown for more details


  • assetbundle now in .dll as an embedded resource, should work when running from mod managers now
