Whether you use a silent approach or prefer direct confrontation, A Plague Tale Requiem makes available to players different types of skills to be unlocked, useful for perfecting the style of play you prefer and allowing the protagonist Amicia to face all kinds of hostilities along the way.
There are three types of skill trees in the signed game Asobo Studio: Caution, Aggressive e Chance, all useful equally depending on the situation we are preparing to face. Unlocking techniques for each of these branches requires you to follow specific approaches, some simpler to put into practice and others more challenging:
To unlock the Prudence skills it is necessary to get around the enemies, avoid direct confrontation by not causing them any damage, or distract them by exploiting resources and the surrounding environment. This is the purely stealth approach, the most complex to implement and therefore making it more difficult to obtain new powers for this branch. But an effective silent approach allows you to gain large amounts of experience points, so acting stealth often proves to be a very valuable solution
To unlock Aggressive skills we must kill the enemies who try to hinder us with the crossbow and every useful resource at our disposal. This is the opposite approach to the stealth one and, obviously, it turns out to be the simplest and most immediate to put into practice, thus allowing you to get many skills for direct combat faster.
To unlock the skills of Opportunity you have to take advantage of the surrounding environment to take out the enemies, without getting your hands dirty directly: luring opponents into a trap to make them devour by rats or making them catch fire, for example, allows you to expand your interaction skills with the world of game.
