Starfield’s Raised Universal trait connects your character to the Sanctum Universum religion. This faith believes in a deity somewhere in the cosmos, waiting to be discovered by humanity. By choosing this trait, players align themselves with the Sanctum Universum, gaining both its benefits and its limitations.


Starfield Raised Universal Pros And Cons

Players can choose the Raised Universal trait during the character creation process at the beginning of Starfield. The following are the pros of this trait:

  1. Exclusive Access to Unique Chest: Players with this trait can access a special chest located in the Sanctum Universum in New Atlantis. This chest contains a variety of items, including:
    • Addichrone
    • Boom Pop! Orange
    • Festive Neocity Poncho or Neocity Urbanwear
    • Med Packs
    • Sanctum Universum, Volumes One to Three
  2. Oxygen Recovery Bonus: The Festive Neocity Poncho or Neocity Urbanwear, found in the chest, offers a 5% oxygen recovery bonus. This can be particularly beneficial in the early stages of the game, helping players survive longer in challenging environments.

Here is the con:

  • Restricted Access: While players gain entry to the Sanctum Universum’s treasure chest, they lose access to the House of the Enlightened’s chest. This means they miss out on the potential rewards that chest might offer.

How to Remove the Raised Universal Trait

Visit Keeper Aquilus at the Sanctum Universum. Engage in a conversation, expressing your doubts about the faith. By choosing specific dialogue options, players can remove the Raised Universal trait. However, before doing so, ensure you’ve looted the exclusive chest in the Sanctum Universum.

Is The Raised Universal Worth It

The value of the Raised Universal trait depends on individual gameplay preferences. If players are drawn to the teachings of the Sanctum Universum and value the unique items and oxygen recovery bonus, this trait is a solid choice. However, it’s essential to weigh the benefits against the restrictions, especially considering the inability to access other religious chests. In the end, the decision boils down to personal gameplay style and the value players place on the offered rewards.
