What are Ancestor Skills in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora?

In Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, Ancestor Skills are powerful and permanent new abilities with unique bonuses the Sarentu forebearers bestowed upon. These abilities are spread all over the Western Frontier and only activate when you connect to Eywa.

These skills are different from the regular skills like Survivor, Warrior, etc, and you need to put in the work to unlock them.

How to get Ancestor Skills in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora

To get Ancestor Skills in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, you need to find Tarsyu Flowers. These flowers are hidden all over the map, and you can locate them by tracking down the large and glowing pink pillars of energy. This is only if you’re playing the game in Guided mode.

Ancestor Skills are special abilities in the game.

Sometimes, you may need to take down an RDA facility before reaching a Tarsyu Flower, so make sure to keep enough arrows and ammo with you. Apart from the Ancestor Skills, Tarsyu Flowers also grants you two skill points, which are useful in leveling up your Skill Tree.

In order to find specific skills, open your pause menu and head over to the Skill tab. At the bottom, you will see an Ancestor Skills button. Press into that, and move the cursor over the skill you want. There will be a button prompt to show it on the map, allowing you to create a waypoint and travel there.
