Remnant From The Ashes: What Are Traits?

Traits are a pretty important set of bonuses that are automatically applied to your character once you unlock them. They’re essentially stat buffs, which apply a base effect. You do not have to activate them, but can use Trait Points to level them up and increase their effects.

How to Earn Trait Points and Level Up Traits

Trait Points are awarded for killing a certain number of enemies. You’ll get them at random while in battle, and will usually get one for beating bosses. You can also track down Tomes of Knowledge, purple book items found scattered randomly throughout the world. Picking up a Tome of Knowledge will grant you one Trait Point, then you can head into the menu to level up your Traits.

How to Reset Trait Points in Remnant From The Ashes

You can actually reset your Trait Points in Remnant From The Ashes. You’ll need an item called the Orb of Undoing, which is awarded for beating the final boss. You can then use it to get all of your spent Trait points back and can respec your character.
