The world of Pandora is a harsh mistress that expects players to use all of their abilities and skills to survive, so make things easier on yourself by tapping into the ancient memory of your clan. Here are the five best Ancestor Skills in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora.
The Best Ancestor Skills in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora features multiple skill trees that you can spend points in to unlock combat abilities, crafting and gathering enhancements, and additional health. But the Ancestor Skills offer the most significant changes to the game. These unique skills, of which there are only a handful scattered about Pandora, provide new ways to interact with the environment, unique takedowns, and more.
|By pressing ‘CTRL’ before hitting the ground, you negate 50% of all fall damage.
|When you leap on top of an enemy from above, it surprises them and allows you to stealth attack with a single powerful hit.
|When an AMP Suit is stunned or hacked using the SID, walk up and hit ‘V’ to melee attack and forcefully eject the pilot.
|Press ‘Spacebar’ to perform a mid-air jump that propels you forward to reach distant ledges or, when touching a surface, pushes away to gain additional height.
|While flying on your Ikran, this technique allows you to swoop in to damage and disorient enemies with her mighty wings.
These five Ancestor Powers are some of the earliest you will unlock in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, and yet they remain viable and powerful well into the end game. Even after uniting the clans, I found myself using these powers and more for traversal and stealth takedowns when tackling outposts and mining operations. The RDA won’t know what hit them!
How to Unlock Ancestor Powers
When you open your map and scan over the uncovered landmass, you’ll note light-pink beams shooting up into the sky from the ground. These beams point toward unique flowers that, when you connect using your Na’vi abilities, unlock ancient Sarentu powers passed down by your clan.
Every flower offers a unique power, so do your best to hunt down each one and interact with it for a noticeable boost.
With newfound power in your grasp, now is the perfect time to check out the Season Pass. It adds additional content to enhance Pandora and its stories in the coming months.
