What damage type is the Abomination weak to in Valheim? 

Abominations are weak primarily to Fire damage, as they are nothing more than giant monstrous trees, like Ents in the Lord of the Rings, that happen to be evil. You can also use Slashing damage from Axes and Swords to significant effect against Abominations, but only if you combine it with a shield. Using a shield, you can block most attacks while hacking away at the Abomination, making defeating the mini-boss easy.

How to beat the Abomination in Valheim - Abomination Boss Guide

To beat the Abomination in Valheim, we recommend having one player equipped with melee weapons, such as axes or swords, and a shield. The melee player needs to tank and distract the Abomination while a second player is armed with Fire Arrows and a decent bow. Whoever uses the bow and Fire Arrows needs to stay back and shoot at the Abomination while it is distracted. We recommend making a platform or a fort for the ranged weapon player to sit upon and fire at Abomination to make defeating it easier.
