Character building is a crucial aspect in Vendetta: Curse of Raven’s Cry. A robust skill tree featuring multiple skills and tiers will enhance your melee combat and ship attributes. Upgrade your combat attacks, enhance your ship’s offensive and defensive capabilities, and even your raven can learn and build upon new skills. Reputation plays an important role as well; depending on your notoriety, enemies will attack or befriend you, merchants will raise and lower their prices, and alliances will be offered or broken depending on your current reputation. Your crew can also gain attributes and will work better or worse as a team depending on how long they have been together, and how well you’ve treated them.
