Valheim Best Forsaken Power
This is a guide to the best forsaken power in Valheim. Read more to find out which of the forsaken powers is the best and why you should equip it!

Best in General


Valheim Forsaken Power Eikthyr

Effect Your ability to run and jump is improved.
Run stamina usage: -60%
Jump stamina usage: -60%

The first power you get is definitely the most convenient one. Because it lowers stamina usage for running and jumping, you can use it both in and out of combat: in combat to supplement your running and dodging, and out of combat to simply move faster.

Especially useful for when you die and you need to run to your corpse, along with the corpse run buff, this ensure that you have a large pool of stamina to run with.

Best in Combat


Valheim Forsaken Power Bonemass

Effect Resistance VS physical damage.
Damage modifier: Resistant VS Blunt
Damage modifier: Resistant VS Slash
Damage modifier: Resistant VS Pierce

As of now, the best power for combat has to be the Bonemass' power. Since most enemies do physical damage, and all bosses except for Yagluth have attacks that deal physical damage, this move ends up being useful against majority of the foes.

As mentioned above, this buff is not useful against Yagluth, so it's recommended to switch to Eikthyr's power in order to be able to run more.
