How to Unlock Traits in Ravenbound

There are four traits that are unlocked by default, while the remainder you will have to select to unlock by purchasing them using your Legacy. There are three types of traits: Folk (Vessel’s race), Weapon (determines Vessel’s specialty), and Standard (gives different bonuses). When choosing to unlock a trait, you’ll want to make sure you’re aware of any downsides, though many traits only have benefits.

In addition to Traits, as you explore Ávalt, you can discover cards and unlocks that aid in your progression. New cards are unlocked with each lifetime, some by chance and some by player choice, and the rewards increase as you grow stronger. These cards can provide a variety of benefits, including better armor, new playable classes, magical weapons, and relics that enhance your character, each with different synergies to uncover. It’s crucial for a Vessel to find the right combinations of cards, as it can mean the difference between life and death.

We hope this guide to all of the Ravenbound Traits you can unlock in the game has helped you plan ahead! Check out more of our Ravenbound coverage.
