What is at the Edge of the World?

There is a Literal Edge

Worlds Edge.jpg
If you're wondering what borders the world of Valheim, it is simply a literal edge. This edge is along the ocean, creating a waterfall that will kill you if you go over it. You can try avoiding it, but this can be difficult if you notice the edge too late as there is a strong current that will drag your ship towards it!

What is Beyond the Edge of the World?

An Empty Ashlands Biome With Cheats

God Mode World Edge.jpg
If you use cheats and turn on god mode with the command god you can survive falling at the edge of the world. You'll end up in an empty Ashland biome that seems to go on with nothing besides an occasional Surtling. Learn more about using cheats in the guide below!

Where is the Edge of the World?

Keep Sailing in a Direction

The edge of the world will always be along the ocean and never along the land. If you want to find the edge, it's as easy as sailing through the ocean in one direction, going around any land if need be until you reach it.

Use Cheats to Show on the Map

Besides sailing and finding the edge yourself, you can also use the cheat exploremap, this will show the entire map for you. Now you can see the edge of the world on your map!

How to Get your Stuff Back at the Edge of the World

Use Debug Mode

If you die falling over the edge of the world, your items with you would be gone for good. That is if you do not use any cheats. Using the Debug Mode with the command debugmode will allow you to go into flying mode and fly down the edge to find your tombstone and retrieve your valuable items!
