Best Skill Upgrade Guide for A Plague Tale: Innocence

To survive the swarms of disease-ridden rats and escape the Inquisition in A Plague Tale: Innocence you will need to take advantage of the game's skill tree which is based entirely around crafting survival tools. As you progress through the story the game will slowly reveal the skill tree. Our Best Skill Upgrade Guide will help you decide what skills to invest in.

In total there by the end of the game there will be seven different areas of Amicia's skills that can be upgraded. Each of these skills is split into three areas giving a total of 21 individual skills overall that can be upgraded. The different skills are listed below.

Best Skill Ugprades

Not all of the skills on offer are equal, some are a lot more useful than others which means you will not want to spend the materials you collected on those that are not worth the effort. Below are the skills we feel are the best ones to invest in, keep in mind though that there will be instances where you will need to unlock a preceding upgrade to unlock a subsequent upgrade in the same area.

1st Upgrade: Pocket and Ammunition Capacities
Make upgrading your ammunition and material carrying capabilities the first skills you invest in as there is nothig more frustrating when you scavenge than coming across more materials than you can carry and painfully realising you have to leave behind what you cannot carry.

2nd Upgrade: Attirail
The first upgrade of Attirail is extremely useful as allows Amicia to become quieter in the shadows which is essential for her to sneak past guards without running. This is one of the first upgrades available and will greatly aid you.

3rd Upgrade: Containers
Although the first upgrade of Containers does not become available until about halfway through the game it is worth spending materials on when it does appear as it introduces Luminosa and Odoris which will be a huge help when solving some of the game's environmental puzzles. Luminosa illuminates areas for a short period of time which keeps the rats at bay, while Odoris draws rats over to an area.
