Wondering how to climb the cliffs in the Midgard tribes? As you explore the procedurally generated world in the co-op Viking ARPG, you’ll encounter numerous cliffs and plateaus scattered around the landscape. These cliffs aren’t all that high, but they will stop your progression cold: your Vikings may be able to slay giants, but they can’t jump or climb.
The cliff wall on your way looks like a dead end, and you can spend ages running around the sides looking for a way to get past it. Sometimes there are important resources on top of a cliff that you want to get to, other times you might want to find a shortcut through cliffs if it’s part of the world you visit often. And even if you manage to get to the top of a slope, it’s not immediately clear how to get back to ground level quickly.
If you want a quick way to climb the slopes, you will need to build some slopes.
Midgard Tribes: How to Build a Ramp
You cannot build ramps on your own. As with all crafts in Tribes of Midgard, you’ll need to visit one of the NPCs in your village. Go to Eyrun the Tinker, it’s in the northwest area of your village, just south of the gate. She can build a ramp if you have the right resources. For anything above a basic slope, you’ll need to level the tamper by giving her souls. Higher level ladders are more durable.
Navigate to the Eyrun Crafting Menu tab that looks like a hammer and saw. This is their build list. Here’s what you’ll need.
Level 1 ramp recipe:
Level 2 ramp recipe:
Level 3 ramp recipe:
For the above recipes, wood can be collected by chopping trees. For the other ingredients:
- iron: 5 iron ore, assembled from iron deposits with an axe. Reformer must be level 2.
- wooden board: 6 wood + 4 branches. Reformer must be level 3.
How to get off the abyss
Fortunately this is easy: just roll. Tapping the space bar allows you to dodge attacks, but you can use it to go around the edges of cliffs to get back to the ground quickly. Be careful, if the cliff is particularly high, you may suffer some fall damage, so don’t go down the cliffs if you’re at death’s door.
