In No Place For Bravery, developer Glitch Factory’s new stylistic action-RPG, you’ll be seeing a lot of blood. In a combat style similar to Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, protagonist Thorn whittles down his enemy’s guard through a series of crucial strikes and well-timed parries in an effort to expose them to critical damage. When it comes to shattering shields and bulldozing a path forward, there’s no better tool than Darim’s Dwarven Hammer – the second main weapon you obtain in No Place For Bravery. Like all weapons, the Hammer has several extra skills to unlock to get the most of it, so continue reading to learn how to unlock all Hammer skills in No Place For Bravery.
How To Unlock Weapon Skills in No Place For Bravery
Every weapon skill in No Place For Bravery has a specific tome or two that must be found before being able to purchase. These tomes, or sometimes scrolls, are scattered around the game world and are indicated by the red diamond markers on your map of any particular zone. Once you’ve obtained the necessary tomes, you can take them to any Battle Memorial to purchase those skills for a small gold fee.
Here’s where all the Hammer skill tomes are found:
Rumble’s Last Thunder — Ballads of the Old Gods x1
Rumble’s Last Thunder allows Thorn to raise the Hammer above his head and charge it up, delivering a devastating ground slam that can stun enemies.
- Ballads of the Old Gods
Near the southern entrance of the Frozen Wastelands lies the Ballads of the Old Gods tome.
Balsaltine’s Whirlwind — Tales from the Deep x2
Balsaltine’s Whirlwind is a large, 360-degree spinning move that damages and knocks away anything around Thorn.
- Tales from the Deep (1)
In the northern area of the Frozen Wastelands, you’ll find the first Tales from the Deep tome after defeating a stronger foe.
- Tales from the Deep (2)
Return back to the Secret Base of the Order, just east of the hub, to obtain the second Tales from the Deep tome. You’ll need to use the Hammer to smash raised blocks and fight through a difficult gauntlet battle.
Madman’s Last Combo — Tales and Ballads by Malasarte the Bard x2
Madman’s Last Combo makes Thorn dash forward, swinging his Hammer at anything in the way, and follows up with a powerful overhead smash attack.
- Tales and Ballads by Malasarte the Bard (1)
In the most western room of the Helwyr’s Fire Production Site, you’ll find the first Tales and Ballads by Malasarte the Bard tome.
- Tales and Ballads by Malasarte the Bard (2)
Shortly after the first Battle Memorial in the Cursed Forest, a room guarded by a powerful mini-boss contains the second Tales and Ballads by Malasarte the Bard.
