Epic Loot

Author: RandyKnapp Source: Github Patreon: patreon.com/randyknapp Discord: RandyKnapp's Mod Community Patch notes: Github Patchnotes

This mod aims to add a loot drop experience to Valheim similar to Diablo or other RPGs. Monsters and chests can now drop Magic, Rare, Epic, Legendary, or Mythic magic items. Each magic item has a number of magic effects on it, that give bonuses to the item or your character when that magic item is equipped.

The mod is currently in Early Access! That means it's not done! Be patient as the author adds new features, fixes bugs, and finishes things up. If you want to help, please provide feedback on the Nexus mod page or on the github for the following:

  • Bugs (check to make sure your bug is new and not already reported)
  • Balance Issues (drops too strong? Too weak? Ruin the crafting progression?)
  • Missing content (check the TODO list below to make sure the author isn't already planning to do it)
  • Suggestions for new magic item effects
  • Suggestions for something else like UI or art improvements

EpicLoot works in multiplayer and on dedicated servers! The server and all players should have the mod and its dependencies installed.

Ashlands Update Notice!

The Ashlands update introduced the addition of the Mythic tier rarity, as well as a huge rebalance of the mod to be more vanilla friendly. If you are upgrading from a previous version you may wish to restore the old values. There is now an add-on with patches to restore the old Epic values: thunderstore link.

Mythic sets have not been created for the base mod, but the feature is available if you wish to create your own sets and add them with the patching system.

Contibutions from the following modders were invaluable and appreciated:


Copy the contents of "plugins" to a new folder called "EpicLoot" in your BepInEx/plugins directory (on both clients and dedicated servers). Currently all main mod json files must be contained in the same folder as the EpicLoot.dll file. When using a thunderstore mod manager these files should be placed in the correct directory for you.
