Tribe Trials

Welcome!
Tribe Trials allow tribes to choose a specialization for themselves, giving their members certain bonuses they can use throughout the game. On this page you will find all necessary information for those trials.

Tribe Trials are very similar to Spirit Trials. There are different types of trials you can choose from, each of them giving your tribe a different bonus. However, there are no guardians or gods as patrons involved! You will have to go from NPC Tribe to NPC Tribe, each of them giving you one prompt. At the end, once all five (5) prompts from our NPC Tribes are done, you will need the Map & Charcoal Item. This item allows you to start the sixth (6th) and last prompt needed to earn your bonus.
 
A tribe can only have one specialization at a time. It is possible to change the bonus by using a Bull Charm and doing another set of Trials however. Keep in mind that you have to wait one month after completing a set of trial before being allowed to change it!
