Valheim: A Guide To Comfort Levels And Maximizing Rested

Valheim offers comfort levels for different items in your base that offer varying “Rested” states, allowing you to replenish stamina and health faster. Here is everything to know about the comfort levels in Valheim.
Valheim: A Guide To Comfort Levels And Maximizing Rested

After playing Valheim for some time, you’ve probably noticed the icons at the top of your screen. 

These icons include: Wet, Shelter, Fire, Rested, Resting, Comfort Level, etc. While most are self-explanatory, like Wet and Shelter, some are not, like Comfort Level and Rested. As you continue to upgrade your base, the numerical values attached to these specific icons tend to fluctuate. 

Though some players have figured out how to stabilize the values, others have not, and that’s what we’re here to help with.

In short, your Comfort Level relates to certain items you have in your base. The most basic of shelters with a roof and fire will grant you a small Comfort Level that in turn gives you a short amount of Rested time. This time helps replenish stamina and health faster but eventually runs out if you venture outside of your base. 

If you want more Rested time, then you need to increase your Comfort Level. However, Valheim doesn’t really tell you how to do this. Luckily, we know exactly what you need to do to maximize your comfort. 

First off, a shelter with a roof, bed and fire will give you nearly the minimum amount of comfort. If you remove the bed then you’ll have the minimum amount. 

Of course, most players won’t have this little in their base for long. At the Bronze Age, which takes place after defeating the first boss, Eikthyr, you can max your Comfort Level to 9 or 11, depending on how far you are in the game. 

A Comfort Level of 9 requires the following: 

  • Roof
  • Bed
  • Fire
  • Table
  • Chair
  • Banner
  • Deer rug

This is relatively easy to acquire, as all of these items don’t take many resources to craft. However, you need to have all of these items within a five-block radius or else the Valheim Comfort Level will reduce.

The Rested bonus for Comfort Level 9 is 16:00. 

Also, it’s recommended to not place a stool or bench in your base, as this will override the chair’s bonus and reduce your level by one. You can have multiple of the other items, however, but it won’t increase your level.

If you want an additional two levels of comfort, then all you need to add is a wolf rug and lox rug. Wolves are found in the Mountains and Lox are found in the Plains, which are a bit past the Bronze Age but still attainable. 

Moving on, the maximum Comfort Level Valheim players can currently achieve is 17. This is attainable by having the following: 

  • Roof
  • Dragon bed
  • Raven Throne
  • Banner
  • Chair
  • Table
  • Hearth
  • Wolf rug
  • Lox rug
  • Deer rug
  • Brazier

Again, you need to have all of these items in close proximity to you or the Comfort Level will decrease. With a maximum level, you’ll receive a 24:00 Rested bonus.
