Mortal Shell Abilities Guide

As you discover shells, you’ll not only be able to imbibe their stats, talents, and weapons but also abilities. Each shell in the game has a total of 10 abilities – all of them being passive. In this Mortal Shell guide, we’ll walk you through everything you need to know about different shell abilities in the game and their costs.

Mortal Shell Abilities

The important thing when it comes to abilities is you won’t have access to them from the get-go. In order to gain access to abilities, you’ll first need to discover the name of your desired shell.

To do so, you’ll need to speak to Awaken Sester Genessa at the entrance of Abandoned Chamber after defeating Enslaved Grisha. It also requires Tar as well as Glimpses.
