Bound By Flame Guide: Feats List and Tips

Need help deciding which feats to pick? Then check out this detailed guide to help you choose!

Feats in Bound By Flame are passive skills that anyone can use, regardless of fighting style. You get one point every time you level up and it is separate from the skill points you get for the combat skill trees.

They fit into three different categories: exploration, combat, and crafting. Most of them help your character tremendously, so don't forget to put points in them. There is technically a fourth category, but only if you let the demon take over. These feats also unlock automatically, so you don't use any points on them.

I'll go over each feat in the game and tips on each one. If you'd like tips on anything else related to Bound By Flame, check out the Master Guide List.

This guide will cover everything about Feats including:

  • Feats List - Every feat in the game and how to unlock them.
