How To Repair Tools and Gear

Valheim Repair Gear.jpg

To repair tools and gears, you need to go to a crafting station and selecting the Repair button, the hammer icon to the left of the crafting window. It doesn't cost anything, so use it as often as possible.

How to Determine When You Need Repairs

There are white bars underneath repairable tools akin to health bars. If they get depleted, you will be unable to use that weapon or tool, so make sure to repair often and keep your item durability high!
