Valheim Legends mod introduces players to six new character classes 

Players can now get into the shoes of 6 new character classes in Valheim through a mod. The Valheim Legends mod introduces 6 new hero classes - Valkyrie, Mage, Berserker, Ranger, Druid, and Shaman

Until now, players only played with the Viking class but this mod has added refreshing content to the game. Players can select these classes by offering an item at the Eikthyr Altar:
Valkyrie = Flint.
Ranger = Raw Meat.
Berserker = Bone Fragments.
Mage = Coal.
Druid = Dandelion.
Shaman = Greydwarf Eye.

Each of these classes comes with 3 unique abilities.
