Avatar Frontiers of Pandora: 7 Best Skills [Our Picks]

I have played Avatar Frontiers of Pandora for 30+ hours and these are the best skills you can have in your skill tree!

The skill system of Avatar Frontiers of Pandora is divided into 5 branches. These branches have a combined total of 58 skills that can be unlocked using skill points. Acquiring these skill points can be really difficult due to the various mountain peaks you have to reach to get some skill points to spend along with ancestor skills. You can find the best skills in Avatar Frontiers of Pandora by weighing them against each other and seeing the ones that are the most worth it. 

Key Takeaways
  • There are a total of 58 available skills in Avatar Frontiers of Pandora.
  • The skills are enveloped into five different skill trees controlling five different Na’vi elements.
  • Skills help to enhance your gameplay by giving you a slight edge in certain areas of Avatar Frontiers of Pandora.
  • You do have to acquire a lot of skill points in order to unlock these many skills.

7. Damage Bonus – Weak Spots 

The most effective hunting skill.

  • Why I Chose It: You will be able to kill huge beasts with ease.

You will find that there are many huntable beasts that have armor on them and much longer health bars than some normal beasts. Such beasts have weak spots that you can scan using your Na’vi Sense. Damage Bonus – The weak Spots skill helps add an additional +25 damage to the weak spots of these beings. It is really useful against giant beings that are really hard to kill in one or two shots. 

6. Expert Forager I, II

The most convenient skill.

  • Why I Chose It: You will be able to carry more items, and you won’t have to just drop the stuff.

Carrying cooking ingredients and crafting ingredients is a hassle since there is so little inventory default space for both of them. Expert Forager relinquished that problem by expanding your inventory to 10 more slots for cooking ingredients and crafting materials each. This can help you find and acquire more items to craft and cook. I know how much of a pain it was when I had to drop items for others, but Expert Forager fixes that. 

5. Sturdy Arrows 

The best bow skill.

  • Why I Chose It: It makes crafting arrows useless, as you can now retrieve them, and it is convenient. 

You lose a lot of arrows while aiming to kill your prey in Avatar Frontiers of Pandora. Sturdy Arrows give you the ability to pick arrows back up after using them on your prey. It will save you the time and materials required to craft the arrows constantly. It is my personal favorite maker skill because I don’t have to waste my time looking for crafting materials for my hunting arrows. 

4. Stable Hands 

The best resource farming skill.

  • Why I Chose It: The skill will, in turn, help you gather resources in pristine condition.

There are a lot of resources and items spread across the world of Pandora, and in order to retrieve them, you have to snatch them off of their place. If you manage to hold the resource for too long and move it too much, you can ruin its quality. Stable Hands makes gathering resources easier and, in turn, lets you gather resources in pristine conditions. It helps to make the recipes a whole lot better and exquisite. 

3. Favorite Food 

The most helpful skill.

  • Why I Chose It: Gathering favorite food for Ikran becomes worth it.

Ikran’s Favorite Foods can sometimes be hard to gather, and the buffs that come along with it feel like it’s not worth it. Favorite Food makes the length of the buff received from Ikra’s favorite food longer. It doubles the time of the buff, making you get the statistical or other buff to go for a longer amount of time. Now, with this skill, gathering and then feeding Ikran its favorite food becomes worth it.

2. Aerial Fishing I, II

The most fun skill.

  • Why I Chose It: It saves so much time that would be wasted in gathering food resources for Ikran.

Gathering resources and meat for your energy and then Ikran’s energy can become exhausting. It also distracts you from your main mission since you may have to land and get items to feed your Ikran if you already don’t have it in your inventory. Aerial Fishing lets your Ikran eat fish while staying low above the water, which replenishes a lot of its energy. Aerial Fishing II lets your Ikran have more energy from the fish it eats.

1. Flying Takedown

The best skill to have.

  • Why I Chose It: It helps make Ikran really helpful during battles.

Flying Takedown is one of the best skills you can have for your Ikran because it lets Ikran get involved in battles and fight back. Ikran is now able to takedown RDA Scorpions and Samsons while they are staggered. If there is any loot or materials you can get from them, it automatically gets transferred to your inventory. I chose this because it is fun to use, and it is really effective when you want to finish off multiple Samsons and Scorpions.

My Take On The Best Skills 

My Game Hours Of Avatar
My Game Hours – [Image By Me]
I have played Avatar Frontiers of Pandora for 30+ hours, and these were the best skills that I found in the game. Each one of them is important to have because they aid you in both battles and exploration. I am an explorer myself, so I need that extra pouch space. My favorite skill has to be Expert Forager I and II from Memories of the Maker. It is up to your personal preference, but I highly suggest you have these skills unlocked in their respective skill trees. 

So these are the best skills among the 58 available skills that the game has to offer. These skills are an amazing way to enhance your gameplay experience by giving you slight edges as you progress through the storyline and exploration of AFOP. While talking about skills, Avatar Frontiers of Pandora has managed to only have the skill tree enhance your character, but its visuals enhance your wildlife photography skills, as said by some X users.
