Far Cry Primal Skill Trees Guide

There are 80 skills in total. Start by bringing the Specialists back to your Wenja village to unlock the 8 different Skill Trees by building & upgrading their huts. Then unlock each Skill by spending the required Skill Points on them; You receive Skill Points after acquiring enough XP (experience points) from completing objectives in the game*. You should be able to unlock all 80 Skill Point Upgrades within 40 hours of gameplay.

*How to get Skill Points fast? After exploring the world, go to your map and look for the orange circular event icons (with a question mark in their left-top corner) that when selected list you get “Special: 1 Skill Point & Bonus XP” upon completion. For example: In the “Tribal Clash: Kill” event.

In the below Far Cry Primal Skill Tree guide, Brian explains how they tie into how you play the game.
