With the 10th of February update, Valheim players won't be able to exploit portals for Ore teleportation anymore.
If you are playing Valheim, by now you probably know really well how tedious is to bring your precious ore to the desired location.
The game features Portals mechanics, but the catch is that you can't actually bring ore through them, which is a shame, because otherwise, they would be the perfect connection between your base and areas rich in materials.
Nonetheless, some players have quickly figured a neat little exploit in order to bypass this restriction and actually use Portals for the ore transaction.

This was possible with a little bit of timing, by simply clicking on a cart or chest at the same time while you are passing through the portal. If you do it correctly, you will end up on the other side with your ore.
Unfortunately, with today's patch, this won't be possible any more, as it seems that developers Iron Gate have fixed this exploit. Now you will need to use good old ships and carts.
The patch also lowers dmg on deathsquitos and adds enemy awareness indicator to enemy HUDs, as well as various improvements and server optimisations.
