The handling of skill growth in Blacktail, a first-person fantasy adventure game, is as distinctive and fascinating as the game’s plot. A teenage archer named Yaga is hunting in Blacktail to find her sister and friends who have to be abducted by the evil witch Baba. With only a bow, a few tools, and a meager amount of magic, Yaga starts the game by gathering resources to expand her skill set.
Instead of the typical video game “level up, acquire skill points,” Yaga’s skills involve using materials dispersed around the landscape. To put it another way, the player is developing their skill set. The gameplay can occasionally resemble harvesting charcoal in ARK: Survival Evolved or farming rabbit skins in The Long Dark. Collecting resources to make tools that will increase damage or teach you new talents.
How To Create New Talents
The Hut, which the player is introduced to early on and may always return to by interacting with the Black Cat, is where skills can only be created by bringing materials to The Cauldron. Red Herbs, Eyes, Honey, Wood, Feathers, Crystals, and Sherlocks are the essential elements required for this and may be found anywhere. Then two unique items are more difficult to locate because they to carefully hidden, namely Lost Pages and Teeth.
All the different skills are useful, but the various arrow-type recipes are particularly useful since, just like in Valheim and other games, they can make challenging adversaries much simpler to defeat.
How to Restore Teeth and Lost Pages
Lost Pages are consumed upon usage and provide the recipe for a few particular Skills, such as the Lost Page of Sticky Arrows. Teeth are the only component needed for each skill in Yaga’s skill tree. It usually only amounts to one or two, so it is not on the same level as the fundamental components but adds up rapidly. Chest Beasts and common chests both include Teeth and Lost Pages. Open Warden Treasures or advance through Blacktail’s main plot to find Lost Pages.
Players will immediately discover they have a small amount of inventory space while gathering all the ingredients for talents, just like in Coral Island and other resource-based games. It can also be updated at The Cauldron, although there won’t be much of a problem because Blacktail’s Bag Toad will automatically collect extra content and store it for later use.
