Tips for playing Tribes of Midgard co-op

The difficulty of the game increase progressively according to the numbers of players in the game. This means that monsters will be stronger in a game with multiple players, while if you play alone monsters will be considerably weaker.

However, playing solo could turn out to be pretty difficult since you could do only one thing at the time. Whereas playing with friends you could turn this to your advantage. Ideally you should coordinate with your friend on to do different things, and to join forces whenever is needed, specially when fighting a strong enemy.

Here are some quick tips that we found most useful when playing with friends online:

  1. Share spared materials in the War Chest. Everything that you store there, your friends will be able to access while crafting a potion, or weapon.
  2. During the day is best to explore the map in different directions so that you could speed up the discovery of all the areas.
  3. Join forces whenever you find a powerful enemy, specially when a Jotun appears or whenever is Blood moon. Defeating these enemies alone could be extremely difficult even in early stages of the game.
