Salt and Sacrifice Beginner Tips and Tricks

Listed below are several Beginner Tips and Tricks which will help you in Salt and Sacrifice.

Spend your Salt on Upgrades
It is essential that whenever possible you use the Salt you have earned to upgrade your character. In order to do this you will need to return to Pardoner's Vale, the small village that is the main user hub. When you are there head left past Champion Hera, and keep going until an ascending staircase heads back on itself. Going up the stairs will take you to the statue of the winged deer-type creature that grants you access to the game's skill tree where you will be able to exchange your Salt, the lifeforce of defeated creatures for stat upgrades.

You can Re-Allocate Skill Points
Don't be afraid to experiment when distributing your Skill Points as they can be re-allocated. When you level up in Salt and Sacrifice you be granted Starsone.

- 1x Black Starstone every level.
- 1x Gray Starstone every five levels.

Black Starstone is used to unlock new level skills and the Gray Starsone you get every five levels can be used on any branch of the skill tree to recall the Starsone spent on it. This basically means you can unlock weapons on the skill tree and won't have to worry about the long-term consequences of investing in a weapon you will unlikely use as there is a way to re-allocate those Skill Points.

Experiment with Different Attacks
Each of the weapons in Salt and Sacrifice has a slew of combos and special attacks which you can use in battle to help defeat enemies. Take the time to experiment with the weapons you gain in order to familiarize yourself with them, so you can take advantage of their abilities during combat.

Buy Bags of Silver
When your character dies in Salt and Sacrifice you are able to return to the place they fell and collect the Salt you earned before dying. However, you will not be able to regain any of the silver you had, this will be lost forever. In the early game there is no banking system to safeguard your silver, so you will need to use the friendly Merchant to save your hard-earned silver. Bags of silver containing roughly 100, 500, or 1000 pieces can be purchased from the Merchant at a slight markup, then sold when you have enough money for a new weapon or armor set. When you store your Inquisitors Silver like this it won't be lost on death.

Know your Trinkets
In Salt and Sacrifice you are able to equip your Inquisitor with up to three Artifact slots at a time (Offensive Artifacts, Defensive Artifacts, and Utility Artifacts). You can also equip them with two Rings, an Amulet, and a Charm. It is not always clear whether a trinket is a powerful stat-factory or just a piece of junk so make sure you know what you are getting before you invest all your materials on it. Trinkets range from pieces of jewelry to mysterious idols that provide bonuses to everything from melee attack power to resistance to different magic types.

Use All Health Items
In Salt and Sacrifice the Hearthen flasks will be your Inquisitors primary source of healing on the go. Keep in mind that you will also be able to heal your character with a Bloodberry. This consumable fruit can be found while foraging for Valley Herbs, and although they restore fewer hit points at a slower rate than a Hearthen flask they can be a lifesaver if you find yourself flaskless after a battle.
