it needs more ways to get iro
At first I was thinking the same thing. But after crafting the troll hide armor, the metal banded shield, and the bronze sword, most of the monsters are not that difficult to kill. Being able to get iron from the high mountains, occasional treasure chest, and Surtlings meteor, creates that extra challenge and extended gaming time that makes the Alpha version more enjoyable - in my humble opinion. Good job, Dvoid!
The game will no longer be updated on itch.io. It is undergoing major content addition, balancing, and more internally, in preparation for an Early Access on Steam (https://store.steampowered.com/app/892970/Valheim/) hopefully by the end of the year, if not then early 2019.
