The Shipyard allows players to build new ships to explore a new ocean biome, while the Armor Perks system will allow players to add perks to their armor. That said, check out the patch notes below to learn more about everything the Serpent Saga update added.

New Biome: Open Seas

  • The emergence of Jömungandr changed the seas of Midgard forever! All worlds are now generated with a much larger balance of water now populated with islands filled with dangerous creatures, rare resources and valuable treasures.

New Structure: Shipyard

  • A new structure. A ruined shipyard can be found on an Ash Beach biome near the village. Gather enough resources to rebuild the shipyard and you can directly craft boats from it.

Boats, Boats, Boats

  • After conquering the Wolf Saga, the Einherjar reflect more on their past lives as Vikings and the ancient ways. With renewed purpose, they remembered the lost art of sailing these majestic ships across the seas.


  • That's right, swim! Not only were the Einherjar recently remembering the ancient art of sailing, but also the crucial skills needed to survive in a world with so much water, until they ran out of stamina.

New boss of the saga: Jörmungandr

  • Jörmungandr has risen! The notorious venomous World Serpent resides in its lair in the heart of the ocean, and if not stopped soon, it will consume all of Midgard in the name of Ragnarök.

New Saga Quest and Saga Quest selection

  • With the introduction of a new saga boss, we have also introduced a new saga quest that will guide you on your journey to defeat Jörmungandr.
  • Fenrir is still part of the world, as is the saga's quest to defeat him. If you're feeling particularly brave (and quick), you can even attempt to complete both saga quests in one world.
  • Please note that during Season 2, the Jörmungandr Saga is selected by default but can be changed at any time on the quest board.

New condition: poisoned

  • Some of the newly introduced enemy attacks, such as a Selkie's claws or Jörmungandr's spit, are capable of poisoning you. The Poisoned condition will slowly eat away at your HP and Mana if you are afflicted.

New Armor Perks

  • Saga 2 launches the Armor Perks system. Each Tribes of Midgard armor piece now contains an additional passive bonus.
  • Each perk is assigned to a particular armor set.
  • You can also mix and match Armor Perks if you're feeling creative. Multiple pieces with the same armor perk will stack the bonus!
