Top Tips to Playing Children of Morta – A Beginner’s Guide

Here are some things you should know.

Children of Morta is a challenging rogue-lite that is taking Steam by storm. That being said, this game can be tough for new players.

If you want to succeed in Children of Morta, then you are going to have to make the most of your surroundings. You are going to have to learn about the game’s many items, understand the game’s mysterious glowing gates and much more.

Check out the quick tips down below before you get started on your Children of Morta journey.

Children of Morta DLCs

The $1.99 DLC “Paws and Claws” helps a great cause and does make the game a bit easier. Something to consider.

“Ancient Spirits” which MSRPs for $4.99 adds more content.

All versions are 100% Steam Deck compatible.

1. Upgrade Every Chance You Can in Children of Morta

Players like to hoard. It doesn’t matter the game or the genre, players will often pocket every potion and save every trinket. When it comes to Children of Morta, however, you are going to want to spend your gold.

Whenever you take a trip to Berguson’s House, you will be able to upgrade your character by spending gold. Don’t hoard your gold in hopes of finding exquisite items for sale later. Purchase these upgrades every time you can.

2. You Can Take Advantage of the Glowing Gates

During your travels, you will find various glowing gates. These gates are often passageways to rooms of loot and respite. Enemies cannot pass through the gates, creating space for a rather unusual tactic.

Your ranged attacks can pass through the gates and injure any enemy on the other side. Consequently, you can always lure hoards of enemies near the gates and then flee to the other side. From there, it’s open season.

3. Use a Ranged Character

Ranged attacks trump all in Children of Morta. Using melee attacks can leave you exposed, vulnerable to unnecessary damage. Avoid taking additional damage by switching to a ranged character.

When it comes to ranged characters, you have a few options. For starters, Linda is an excellent archer. Lucy, on the other hand, is a fireball casting mage.

It is up to you which ranged character you choose, but Lucy arguably has a better skillset overall.

4. Experiment With Your Runes

Runes are going to be your primary avenue for building your skillset. Like any good rogue-lite, Children of Morta allows you to collect a series of impressive powers as you storm your way across the mountain.

It is important, however, that you experiment with these runes. You can easily find yourself sticking to the same selection of runes as you play. While your selections may be effective, there will always be unique rune combinations that you have yet to try.

Much of Children of Morta is about experimentation. Test out every rune you can find before deciding which ones are worth your time.

5. Flesh Out Every Corner of the Map

It is incredibly important to search every inch of each map your journey takes you on. If you want to be prepared for anything, then you are going to need everything these maps have to offer.

There is perhaps an argument for avoiding unnecessary combat for the sake of minimizing your risks when playing a rouge-lite. That being said, you are going to want to take that risk in Children of Morta so that you can take advantage of every relic, rune and research tablet you can get your hands on.

If you are always on the lookout for the several nifty items and upgrades this game has to offer, then you will be far more prepared for the title’s many challenging boss fights and other combat sequences.
