After you manage to bond with your Ikran, you then unlock a branch on your skill tree, which is called the Memories Of The Rider. This branch is specially dedicated to the bond with your Ikran. There are many skills that can be unlocked by using Skill points, but since gathering skill points is a hard and long task, you would want to carefully choose the best skills for your Ikran in Avatar Frontiers of Pandora.
Best Ikran Skills Comparison
The following are my picks for best skills you can receive for Ikran:
|Skill Points Required
|The most useful Rider skill. Replenishes the entire energy bar of Ikran with a flying takedown. Staggers nearby RDA units, setting them up for takedowns.
|The best aerial battle skill. Allows Ikran to join the battle, counterattacking and finishing off staggered RDA Scorpions and RDA Samsons in the air. Loot from enemies automatically added to your inventory.
|The most underrated skill. An inexpensive defensive maneuver in aerial battles, allowing you to dodge attacks from RDA Scorpions and RDA Samsons.
|Aerial Fishing I
|The most efficient skill. Simplifies feeding Ikran by eliminating the need for hunting or cooking multiple types of food.
|The most convenient skill. Doubles the duration of the buff provided by Ikran's favorite food, maximizing the benefits of feeding.
|The best statistical enhancement skill. Provides a 20% boost in Ikran's energy, addressing the issue of fast energy depletion, especially during Speed Burst.
6. Improved Energy
Your Ikran runs out of energy really fast, especially if you are spamming the Speed Burst button for your Ikran. The Improved Energy provides you with an exponential boost of 20% in your Ikran’s energy. You should definitely prioritize getting this skill before anything else because your Ikran needs this boost! You will require Three skill points to acquire the skill, which is a bit much but definitely worth it.
5. Favourite Food
When you try gathering the favorite food for your Ikran, it causes you to waste a lot of time just trying to feed Ikran for a minor buff.
You need something to make you go out of your way to search for Ikran’s favorite food. With the Favourite Food skill, the buff provided by the food will stay for double the amount of time it normally stays. It can help you get more out of feeding your Ikran, making it a necessary addition to your skill tree.
Also, consider going through our guide on the best weapons in Avatar to pair with these skills.
4. Aerial Fishing I
It can be really stressful trying to gather food to replenish not only your energy but your Ikran’s as well. It can distract you from your main quest as you try to gather and cook more and more amounts of food.
With the help of the “Aerial Fishing I” skill, you will be able to feed your Ikran without having to go for a hunt or cook multiple types of food for it. It will, in turn, help you focus on more important tasks like finding out if there’s romance in Avatar Frontiers of Pandora.
3. Barrel Roll
Whenever you find yourself under attack by RDA Scorpions and RDA Samsons mid-air, you need some sort of defensive mechanism to help avoid these attacks.
Barrel Roll skill helps to dodge such attacks by performing a rolling maneuver by pressing either the “Square Button” with the “Left” analog stick for PS users or Shift with “A” or “D” for PC users. It costs only one skill point, so it is really cheap to acquire and use, making it an underrated skill.
2. Flying Takedown
Most of the time, your Ikran is just there to fly you to places and carry you through mid-air battles. Flying Takedown lets your Ikran join the battle by counterattacking and finishing off staggered RDA Scorpions and RDA Samsons in the air. If there are materials or loot to be gathered by the Samsons or Scorpions, they will automatically be added to your inventory. However, it will take 3 points to receive the Flying Takedown skill.
1. Hunter’s Boon
The Hunter’s Boon is an Apex Memory Skill, meaning it is bound to be the best skill for Ikran out of all of the Rider skills in Avatar Frontiers of Pandora. With Hunter’s Boon, you will be able to replenish the entire energy bar of Ikran by doing a flying takedown on the enemy.
Another bonus thing is that if there are any other RDA units near you when you take down an enemy, they will get staggered, which you can then pair with the Flying Takedown ability to take them down as well.
My Take On Ikran’s SkillsI have played Avatar Frontiers of Pandora for about 30+ hours, and I found these Memories of Rider Ikran skills to be the best of the skill tree. After spending your skill points on these skills, you won’t really need another skill for Ikran or any other mount since these are enough to give you tactical advantages during your gameplay. Nonetheless, you will still have to grind and get additional skill points to acquire the aforementioned skills.
So these were my take on the best skills in Avatar you can receive for your Ikran. Make sure to always remember that you have these skills by your side so that you can utilize these skills while playing the main storyline. Players have described Avatar Frontiers of Pandora as one of the most visually magnificent open-world games on Quora.
