Spiritfarer Walkthrough and Guide by Aryafortis & Paul (vhayste)
Last Updated:
Thank you for printing this page from to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Spiritfarer
In Spiritfarer, not only do you have to help out Spirits by providing with their needs and requests, but you’ll also need to travel to different locations and reach new areas. Spiritfater has platforming elements in terms of gameplay, so learning more abilities along the way can help Stella out with her progress.

In this page, we’ll discuss how you can acquire abilities, what their effects are, as well as their locations. Abilities can help Stella out since it provides new features such as double jump and more. So, let’s check which abilities she can get in this game.

How to learn new abilities

When starting out the game, you’ll get to encounter Gwen as your first Spirit on board. Once she reveals her true form to you, you’ll be provided with an Obol. You’ll eventually go to an area as well called Humminberg and you’ll get to find a huge shrine. Once you have Atul or Summer on board, you’ll get more Obols from each of them as well.

A Shrine in Spiritfarer

If you interact with the shrine at Hummingberg, you can use the Obol in order to learn a new ability called Double Jump. There are different shrines such as the one here throughout the game, and they all provide new abilities for Stella. The abilities that you learn all cost 2 Obols each, so you’ll need to know the Shrine location, as well as have enough Obol to learn them all.

Where to get more Obol

Now that you know how to get new abilities, you’ll wonder where you can get more Obols. Here is the list of ways you can get more of them in Spiritfarer:

  • You can get 1 Obol for each spirit that goes on board your ship. Bruce & Mickey give 2 Obols making it 12 total for all spirits. (Giovanni isn’t included).
  • You can get 1 Obol in Edgeborough Lane from the Racoon Inc. Shop (2000 Glims)
  • You can get 1 Obol from Hades after you have sent 8 Spirits through the everdoor. (Bruce & Mickey counts as one).
  • You can get 1 Obol from Greymist Peaks to the right side of the Dash Shrine.

  • Spiritfarer Abilities List

    Each ability found in the game can be learned from a specific shrine. The coordinates of each shrine are different, and there are also hidden ones that will be shown in a map. Take note that you don’t really need to learn all of these abilities in order to finish the game, but they can help you out with your platforming progression.

    We hope that this page has helped you out learning more about Obols as well as the abilities that Stella can learn. The more spirits you get on board the ship, then the more obols you can get. In Spiritfarer, you’re not only tending to your ship, but you’re also urged to explore.

    If you want to complete all skills in the game, then you’ll have to get 14 total Obols. We hope that you’ll be able to get them all. We will also be creating other pages that can help you out with this game, so please refer to our guide menu.

    That concludes our dedicated page for Abilities that you can learn in Spiritfarer. Please check out our other helpful pages for the game.
