What is the Blood Moon?

A blood moon is an event that happens every four nights in-game. During that time, the hordes of Helthings will be stronger than ever before! And if that isn’t scary enough, the brute force of the Jotun will strike your village that same night as well. That’s why you should be prepared for the event, because if not it could end your game.

How can I prepare for the Blood Moon?

A good strategy for surviving during that event is to defeat the Jotun before it approaches your village. Therefore, we advice to face the Jotun the day before the Blood Moon, that would be every three days in-game. If you manage to do that, you can focus on fighting the hordes of Helthings during the Blood Moon, which is a situation much easier to overcome.

Keep in mind, that you should also follow this advice when playing co-op. The strength of enemies will increase with the number players in a game so make sure everyone stays within village helping cover every gate during the Blood Moon!

When playing in solo mode, it’s important to improve the gates of your village. As a result, the gates will endure longer and you can keep them closed while defending other gates. Improving other defenses such as the towers is always helpful, but you should always prioritize the gates.

The blood moon has been a lot of people’s downfall, but it doesn't have to be yours! There are actually some benefits that you can take advantage from this situation. Here's how:

  1. There won’t be any Helthings attacking your village the night after the Blood Moon. So you can use that time to explore and gather materials to forge better weapons.
  2. Because of the increased number of Healthings that attack your village during a Blood Moon, it’s a great opportunity to do achievements or unlock classes, such as the Berserker, if you want to know more, check our guide on how to easily unlock the Berserker.
