Skills, Attributes and Talents



Unlocking all skills of a class isn't hard. You will reach level ~35 before the end of the game, granting you ~35/29 points. Furthermore, there are several hidden shrines scattered throughout the world, each increasing your total points by one unit.

Just save your game, use a memory crystal and reset all points. Fill any class tree, load your save and proceed with another one. Using the same way, you can fill any attribute and talent branch as soon as you reach five or three points respectively.

Relationships and Reputations



Several achievements are tied to your relationship with your companions and their fractions.

GreedFall - Achievement Guide

Relationships

You have five companions: Vasco, Kurt, Síora, Aphra and Petrus. It's not necessary to reach a frienly relationship with all of them at once. To be able to achieve all of them during one playthrough, make sure to prevent the coup with Kurt!

Regarding your talents it's recommended to focus on charisma and intuition to avoid bloody confrontations. Note, that enforcing your will with money won't hurt anyone.

How to increase their levels:

Firstly, you should focus on completing companion quests: follow them as soon as they appear and ignore the main story line. Secondly, you should speak with your companion during or after completing one of his/her quests - you can pick certain questions/answers and some of them increase the level even more. To guarantee success it's highly recommended to regularly save the game.

Sometimes, quest have optional subquests which could have impact on the companion as well. If you miss one and get a negative score, load a previous save and replay the quest. Moreover, you should pay attention on your second companion - he or she might not like your actions - reload and pick another one if you notice a decreasing relationship.

Full list of companion quests:

  • Vasco - A Name for a Family
  • Vasco - Family Reunion
  • Vasco - Forever a Naut

  • Kurt - Missing in Action
  • Kurt - Amongst the Ghosts
  • Kurt - Settling Scores

  • Síora - Find Queen Bládnid
  • Síora - Promises Set in Stone
  • Síora - The Queen's Farewell

  • Aphra - Islander Knowledge
  • Aphra - The Cave of Knowledge
  • Aphra - The Linking Ritual

  • Petrus - The Vices of the Mother Cardinal
  • Petrus - Dangerous Bets
  • Petrus - The Sins of Father Petrus

Friendship above all

  • Finish all companion quests

After a slightly advanced friendly status with a companion, he or she will ask to date you. Find him or her in the bedroom of one of your residences and confess your love.

  • Vasco: bisexual
  • Kurt: heterosexual
  • Síora: bisexual
  • Aphra: heterosexual
  • Petrus: not dateable

Agree, find him or her in the bedroom of one of your residences and confess your love.

You can only confess your love to one of your companions! The others won't date you if your relationship level with one companion is set on loving. Therefore, you should load your previous save after unlocking the related achievement and proceed with another character.

Love and the sea

  • Be in a relationship with Vasco

Guardian of love

  • Be in a relationship with Kurt

Minundhanem

  • Be in a relationship with Siora

Love and botany

  • Be in a relationship with Aphra

Reputations

All faction reputations can be increased like the character relationships. But this time, you need to keep all of them as high as possible to get an achievement towards the end of the game!

Finish all secondary quests and pay attention to your decisions and their impacts. Always load a previous save if you have noticed a single negative score, even if it's just a tiny decrement. Sometimes, it's inevitable to increase the level of a faction without losing some sympathies with another.

Most quests will appear naturally, but some must be started manually by talking to certain people. Hence, you should visit important characters regularly and always exhaust all of their dialog options - especially Admiral Cabral in the Port Quarter and the quartermasters in the Coin Guard Barracks. Note, that some faction-related quests (Natives) will already appear after playing for a few hours whilst others (Bridge Alliance) will come to the fore during late game.

Carants

  • Have a good reputation with the natives

Thélème's chosen

  • Have a good reputation with Thélème

Favoured with the Bridge Alliance

  • Have a good reputation with the Bridge Alliance

Having good reputations with all factions allows you to pick all of them as allies during the final chapter. Convince all of them to help you during the main quest "Together for Teer Fradee".

All for one, one for all!

  • You managed to unite all factions against Constantin
