Valheim Autumn Update: What's In Patch 0.217.28?

Valheim Patch 0.217.28 The Valheim Autumn update is finally here after some delays, and brings back two craftable items to celebrate the spooky season: the Jack-o-Turnip and the Pointy Hat. The Jack-o-Turnip is a light source that can burn for a maximum of 33 hours and 20 minutes. You can craft this item at the Workbench using 4x Turnip and 2x Resin. As for the Pointy Hat, craft it at the Workbench using 3x Deer Hide, 5x Coal, and 1x Bronze. Wearing it will make your character fit for Halloween, but be careful, as it's not exactly protective with 1 defense. Tip: Avoid wearing the Pointy Hat if you want to take advantage of armor set bonuses, like when wearing the full Fenris armor set. The rest of this patch focuses on various fixes and improvements. For instance, the game now has a “Render scale” graphics setting to let the main viewpoint render at a lower resolution. This setting can be useful for lower-end gaming systems. The patch also fixes various known bugs and issues.
