One of the key parts of progressing in Forager is garnering new skills. In order to learn a new skill, you will first have to earn a level by gaining enough experience within the game. Next, you will be able to spend a skill point to learn a skill of your choosing from the skill tree.
There are four types of skills in Forager. There are industry, forager, magic and economy skills. The trick, however, is that the only skills visible to the player are the ones adjacent to skills already filled with skill points. Consequently, it can be hard to plan out your character.
Luckily, we have come up with a quick rundown of all the available skills in Forager. Check them out below.
