What are Talents?

Talents in Beasts of Bermuda are optional enhancements that can be applied to a player's creature. Each talent gives unique perks to a creature, whether it be something like extra damage or increased tolerance to severe weather.

Many talents are simple in nature, increasing values such as ability power or oxygen by set amounts. However, some talents enable abilities previously inaccessible to a certain creature, such as being able to reduce an opponent's stamina with a standard bite attack. Because of this, a creature's functions and playstyle can be individually tailored to the player's liking.

Inherits are bonuses to existing talents. Whether spawned or nested, one has a chance to gain up to +2 on any talent available to the creature they have selected. One important thing to note, however, is that while a spawned creature's inherits are totally random, a nested creature may inherit any of the talents either of their parents put points into. A parent's inherits cannot be transferred to offspring. Bonus inherited talents are potentially unlocked at growths 0.45, 0.60, 0.80, 1.00, and 1.20. The tier of the bonus talent received will correspond to the attained growth benchmark. That is, at 0.45 growth, only a tier 1 talent (e.g. Resilience) will potentially receive an inheritance talent; at growth 1.2, only a tier 5 talent may receive an inheritance.

All spawned creatures are guaranteed 2 positive inherits, but may also receive anywhere from 0 to 2 negative inherits and/or an additional 2 positive inherits. This brings the total to 6 (4 positive, 2 negative)(the optimal result would be 4 - all positive, no negatives). However, if a negative and positive 'land' on the same inherit, they may cancel each other out. Although spawned creatures are confined to these limits, nested creatures have the chance for even more inherits. The Good Parent talent, if obtained by one or more parents, may boost the chances for their offspring to have additional positive inherits. Nested creatures only have the potential to earn negative inherits if they are the product of incest or their parent takes injury damage before the egg is laid. Additionally, if the parent's comfort drops below 25 as the egg incubates, it can have the same effect.

Types of Talents

Talents can be sorted into three major categories.

Power Talents

Power talents, in the talent screen, lie on the bottom left with the power tree. The color associated with these talents is red. Power talents increase the strength and battle capabilities of one's creature.

Speed Talents

Speed talents, in the talent screen, lie in the top center of the screen with the speed tree. The color associated with these talents is green. Speed talents increase a creature's mobility and maneuverability.

Survival Talents

Survival talents, in the talent screen, lie on the bottom right with the survival tree. The color associated with these talents is blue. Survival talents improve a creature's ability to survive and be efficient in its environment.

In-betweeners

Some talents lie between trees in the talent screen. As such, they can be classed as both of the talent types they lie between. For instance, a talent between the power and speed trees could be classed as both a power and speed talent.
