Do Trait Effects Stack?

You Can Stack Them As Much As You Want

Wearing the gear with the same Traits at the same time will stack the Traits' effects. For that reason, you can significantly strengthen your character at once when you get at least 1 Trait upgraded.

Ancient Magic 3・Critical hit enemies on one shot

Unforgivable 3Enhances Unforgivable Curses

Basic Build Consists 6 Stacks Of Concentration 3

The most basic Trait build is to add "Concentration 3" to all gear parts to increase the attack power of all Damage Spells. You may change it to other Traits as necessary when you want to use Ancient Magic in succession in boss battles or when you want to mainly use Unforgivable Curses in Combat.

Best Build - Strongest Gear & Traits

Powerful Level 3 Traits From Bandit Camps

Stronger traits can be obtained from the Legendary Treasure Chests you can find in the Bandit Camps. You can also reroll these Traits by saving before opening the Treasure Chest and reloading the save data until you get the desired Traits for your character.
