Blunt damage is the best physical damage type in Valheim. All types of clubs deal blunt damage, a weakness of many dangerous enemies. It’s no surprise then, that the best weapon in the game is a hammer (club family of weapons).
The best part about blunt damage is that all the enemies that are resistant to blunt are either weak overall, or can be killed with a bow from afar. Most notably, trolls, who are weak to pierce damage. Vikings that choose clubs won’t find any enemies they can’t handle with either their bow or club.
You will also find it much easier in the Swamps compared to your friends. The Blobs and Oozers you will find in the swamp have a nasty poison attack and are quite dangerous. They’re also resistant to all physical damage except blunt. Plus, when it’s time to fight Bonemass, you already have the weapon and the skills required. Life’s good if you’re using clubs.

Why are wraith both resistant and weak to all three types of physical damage?
Oops! Thanks for pointing that out.
