Valheim: Comfort guide
If you want to improve your rested effect in Valheim, you will need to increase your comfort level with a base full of new furniture and decorative items!
Valheim can be quite a difficult game, and it’s never clearer than when you travel to new biomes and find yourself facing newer and more dangerous monstrosities. The best way to tackle the unknown in a game like this is to be as prepared as possible.
There are many ways to do this in Valheim, but one of the most important is to increase your comfort level. This will improve the bonus you get when your character feels “rested” and that should be one of your top priorities whenever you unlock a bunch of new crafting recipes.
What is the comfort level for?
The comfort level of your base will directly affect the level of your rested effect, which is a bonus applied to your character whenever they rest near a fire or use a bed for at least 20 seconds without getting wet and with no enemies nearby.
In the meantime, you will be temporarily rest effect. The effect of rest triples your health regeneration and quadruple your stamina regeneration. If you can maintain this resting effect for the required twenty seconds (which happens automatically if you fall asleep in a bed), you will get a different and separate effect. rested effect (beware of the past!).
The rested bonus improves your 50 percent health regeneration, doubles your stamina regeneration, and even offers a 50 percent experience bonus too much! The rested effect too persists for a while depending on your comfort level.
To his basic rate (level one) you will only get the bonus for seven minutes. With the maximum comfort level, you will get the effect of rest for a huge 25 minutes (27 minutes with rare seasonal items) – more than enough to take on a tough boss or sack a few crypts.
