Elex 2 Tips For Beginners: Best Early Skills, How To Get Learning Points, And More

Everyone seems to be playing the biggest game of the season. This RPG went viral like a few games before, quickly becoming the biggest game its legendary team has ever released. It feels like everyone is talking about it. This game is certainly not Elex 2. However, for those who aren’t interested in From Software’s massive RPG, Elden Ring, and are looking for a new installment to immerse themselves in for a few hours, the strange and charming Elex 2 might quench their thirst. Here are a few Eleks 2 tips we hope you grab onto the ground – or better yet, don’t hit the ground at all given your jetpack in the early game.

Elex 2 tips for beginners

The Elex 2 enjoys giving you the freedom to choose, but this no-tampering design can confuse you when you get started. Take our tips with you and quickly catch the aliens and find the secrets.

Comparison of Attribute Points and Training Points

Elex 2 uses a bi-directional character skill tree, and each tree improves in a different way. Attribute Points (AP) are unlocked 10 at a time, and just like in games like Fallout, they can be distributed across a range of skills as you see fit. Your character, Jax, can be upgraded in categories such as Strength, Constitution, Agility, Intelligence, and Cunning. Every time you level up, you get 10 AP which you can spend as you wish.

You will also receive one Learning Point (LP) per level, but this will require a bit more work. Training points are spent on trainers, which can be found all over the world, usually in cities and other centers of civilization among the post-apocalyptic rubble. Trainers will teach you new abilities, both passive and active, in several categories:

  • The battle
  • Survival
  • craft
  • Personality
  • Berserk
  • Alb
  • Morcon
  • outlaw
  • Cleric
  • jetpack

Most of these are self-explanatory, but if you’re new to lore and/or haven’t played the first game, understand that Alb, Berserker, and Morcon are different types of magic inspired by different factions. You can ignore them completely if you don’t plan on using magic. Otherwise, you’ll want to find and focus on learning the skills that are right for your build.

Learning new skills with LP usually also requires certain levels of attributes and eleksit (money). Jax starts with a clean slate, for the most part, so think about your build, so you don’t waste any AP or LP from the moment you gain control.

Focus on strength and agility to get started

If you’re taking a break from Elden Ring, you’re used to thinking about building up your strength or agility. In Elex 2, at least in the beginning, you’ll want to focus on both. Your lead pipe starter weapon doesn’t help much, and the early weapons you find require a bit more than your stats require for both powers. As well as dexterity. Later in the game, you may find it worth minimizing these stats one way or another, but for now, a small buff to both is ideal.

MYOM – Mark your own card

Elex 2 immediately gives you the card, but the game does nothing to mark it for you. You will need to do this yourself, though it’s not as hard as you might think. You can see where you are on the map, and none of it is clouded or needs to be revealed as some open-world games require. To place quest markers on the map, go to your quest log and select “mark on a map” when the quest is highlighted.
Also, you can drop your own markers by holding Y/Triangle and choosing from several custom game icons such as treasure chest, wolf, skull, and more. With their help, you can create your own language that will help you explore the world in more detail.

Create your own challenges in Elex 2, just make sure you have an exit strategy.

Use Campfires to Cook (and Improve) Food

Elex 2 contains a lot of mechanics that you might be familiar with if you love RPGs but rarely introduces them. One of these elements is the ability to cook food. You’ll find that some raw foods are great to eat the way you found them, and they will buff things like your health and combat readiness. But some dishes can be cooked on any fire you come across, and this is especially important if you plan on eating things like animal meat. Do not be ill. Prepare food carefully to enjoy its benefits.

Customize autosave settings

Like any solid RPG, Elex 2 will automatically save. This is useful when you want to undo a difficult decision, retract your scathing comment, or try again in a difficult combat zone without using up all your health potions. By default, Elex 2 automatically saves every three minutes, but you can configure this process in the game options menu. Every three-minute interval between 3 and 60 minutes is available, so choose a beat that suits your shenanigans, or even disable autosave entirely, though we don’t recommend that.

Don’t Miss Billy Idol’s Early Concert

Incomprehensibly, Billy Idol not only exists in the Elex universe but still performs live concerts for the inhabitants of a fractured, war-torn world. After you complete the first mission of the game, you will be informed about the upcoming Billy Idol show, which will take place north of your location. Put a mission on your map (as we showed you in the previous tip) and then head there to catch the longtime rocker putting on a gig in his least expected location to date. There’s really nothing in the show other than that and a bit of experience right in the first hour of the game, so it’s fine if you really can’t stand Billy Idol. You will even get an achievement/trophy for the time spent. Metaverse: It’s not just for Fortnite anymore.

Jetpack above all and everything

Elex 2 is built differently than most RPGs. As evidence of this, we point you to the jetpack, which you will receive once the game gives you control. While it can be improved to be even more useful later on, it’s an immediate boon anyway. The best use case for the jetpack is terrain scaling. Many missions go high and low, so the jetpack will help you get up or down quickly without fear of falling damage.

You can – and should – also use it in combat, as it can provide you with some much-needed breathing room or give you a height advantage over your enemies. There really isn’t a bad time to use a jetpack, so it’s really nice to get one as soon as you launch the game.
