The Trait system in Remnant: From The Ashes works similar to an Experience system in other games. When defeating enough enemies or obtaining a Tome of Knowledge, the player gains one trait point, which can be spent on any trait the player has "found" yet.

To my knowledge, there are 35 different traits, and each trait can be improved until rank 20. This requires the player to obtain a total of 700 trait points to maximize every trait.

Is there a Trait Level limit in place which prevents this? Or can trait points be spent freely and all that matters is priority?

  • I've read that in coop you get +1 for each Tome of Knowledge when another player pickup tome. Also option to reset world hint that there is no limit, keep resetting and completing the worlds or just play coop and you will be able to get all treats to maximum. – Sinatr Aug 23 '19 at 14:04
  • @Sinatr This is what I had thought as well, though there is always the possibility that there is a hard limit. I.e. even if you picked up a Tome of Knowledge, you would not gain a Trait point. – MechMK1 Aug 23 '19 at 14:22
  • Actually, I've heard in one stream someone said "my character is 500 level and it is maximum", the level in this game is a total amount of skill points you can spend. So it seems 500 is maximum points you can have. Luckily some of skills are completely useless, e.g. after reaching maximum level you can respec (you get access to respec potion, which costs 2500 scrap after beating last boss) and get rid for +% experience skill. – Sinatr Aug 28 '19 at 7:21
  • Sorry for previous comment, streamer lied, I got 501 level myself and it goes up. Also UI to choose campaign (while there is only one currently) imply what we will have more content, means more traits. While maximum points could be rised via new DLCs, I am biasing on grindy nature of the game: it's motivating to play by the fact you CAN collect something. When you reach max = you will stop. So there is no max. And it's just slow enough. And traits in general just a small bonus anyway. But I am not dare to post answer ofc. – Sinatr Sep 3 '19 at 14:05


Currently there is maximum limit of trait points - 640 points. It's enough to max all available traits.

Here is my char, I am not getting experience anymore (experience bar is empty) and I stop getting trait points when me or someone else pick up Tome of Knowledge.

I am still missing 3 traits, when I obtain them - they will be level 1 each, so

580 trait rank + 57 free points + 3 points = 640.

Yes. Each trait can have a max of 20 points, and there 32 traits in the game. So the max trait level is 640.

Whenever you get a trait point you can put it into whatever trait you want, so long as that trait doesn't already have 20 points in it.

Edit: Source

    Can you cite any sources for that, please? – MechMK1 Aug 27 '19 at 20:41
  • @MechMK1, probably this wiki, there is currently indeed 32, but wiki is not full, e.g. this page miss Heavy Hitter. Could you rather provide your source of 35 max? – Sinatr Aug 28 '19 at 7:23
  • @Sinatr The wiki page we both linked to listed 35 traits in the version from 22nd of August. The three traits Wisdom, Heavy Hitter and Steady Breathing have been removed since then. I assume they were data-mined and are not actually obtainable at the moment. – MechMK1 Aug 28 '19 at 7:37
  • Aye, I've noticed some "silent" patches in Steam, bugfixes and balancing, it may all get changed. Btw, I am currently 150 level. If you wait for something like 2-3 weeks, I'll reach 500 and will post the answer =D – Sinatr Aug 28 '19 at 7:43
  • @Sinatr Yesterday I was 178, so we might hit max level at around the same time :D – MechMK1 Aug 28 '19 at 10:51
