    I started using it yesterday. Very necessary once you're in the desert.

    I've found myself using less stealth tactics - feeling more confident in my use of the overall weaponry. Took down a +6 Thunderjaw last night.

    Any tips for upgrading the skill tree and boss battle tips?

    Depends on how you want to play.

    I've focused on Prowler skills cause I like stealth whenever I can use it, but Brave skills will help you in combat, while Forager skills help you with crafting and resources.

    Just depends on what you want. I'm 30 hours in and I've dipped my feet in each area.

    Edit: As for "bosses", the bigger they are, the more you want to focus on breaking off parts and weapons on their body.

    The best thing about Horizon is that there is no "correct" way to advance the skill tree. It's literally going with what will best fit how you want to play.

    Not starting with Stealth Strike and Lure is WRONG, tho... :whistle:

    Noted on all these!!

    If you just keep ding sidequests, you'll hit the 20s quite easily. By then, you'll have enough skill points to go down one column in each tree.

    Here's mine at level 27.

    If I'd ever change anything, it would probably be switching the extended override time for more critical hit damage. But then again, I use override a lot the way I play. Also, didn't originally plan to go down Forager that much, but the extra ammo on crafting (2nd to the last on the last column) is pretty much necessary once you get the purple weapons, especially the shadow ropecaster whose heavy rope uses 10 wire to craft.
    You can't ask for well-thought-out changes off day 1, week 1, or mostly even month 1 play...and that's when the game is out and everyone's in the lab.

    Everyone (should) be mindful that if there isn't a new generation after my generation, the FGC (fighting game community) will basically become extinct, so it's important to think about the future.

    Yeah wire has been the only thing I have found myself running out of a few times. Mostly cause of the ropecaster but a lot of other things use it as well.

    Having to stock up on wire makes me wish the game let you buy multiples of one item.

    EDIT:
    Engadget feature on Aloy's VA Ashly Burch, who apparently spent 2 years recording all the lines for Aloy.

    Also, whoever did that article definitely had fun with the game's photo mode.

    Yeah I don't see they need for lure early on when rocjs do the same shit. Or is there a specific difference Idk about?

    Lure always draws a single target towards you, which is hella useful when playing stealth.

    At this point, both are too useful to not go for them immediately, or at least after picking up concentration.

    IMO, first six skill points should go to concentration, silent strike, lure, and then healer just so you can get herbalist.

    You gotta get those skills first. Hell, they should've been default.

    Game really is fun. I have been getting a lot of use out of the mount. Gonna make some more saves and find different ways to get the mount stuck somewhere.
    Are you able to mount different robots or just the striders?

    I've mounted the strider and the broadhead (the one that looks like a bull with horns) so far.

    Striders, broadheads, and chargers. Sadly, thunderjaws cannot be mounted (need to give them dutch devs stronger drugs than pot).

    Some players are now saying that there's apparently enough stuff in the game that's pointing to a possible expansion set in the "forbidden west."

    Finally started the game.
    I am at the part of the game when you finally start travelling around the world (i am lvl 11) and i am really impressed so far.
    The game feels really nice and responsive, plus every weapon feels like it makes sense on the context of the game so far.
