Fighting Skeletons

Spirit Damage is one of the four elemental damage types found in weapons of Valheim. The Spirit Damage allows players to fight undead enemies like Skeletons, Fenrings and Draugrs.

Spirit Damage is especially helpful when you’re dealing with a Skeleton Spawner or a bunch of Draugrs. Weapons made out of Silver generally have added spirit damage in them. But, we’ll get to that later. First, you need to know how spirit damage works.

Fighting Draugrs

Spirit Damage is used for fighting undead enemies. Once equipped, a weapon with Spirit Damage does not only deal a good amount of damage, but it also unleashes a blue fire to burn enemies like Wraiths etc. and continues to cause damage overtime.

Spirit Damage is indeed a handy elemental type you can use for fighting. But only a select few weapons have inbuilt Spirit Damage capabilities. So, you might want to take a note on the ones that do.
