GreedFall: Quick beginner's guide
Below, you will find the 10 most important tips and tricks that draw attention to a number of useful issues. Learning them should help you survive the first hours of the game and avoid making serious mistakes. For more tips, see the separate section called Beginner's guide.
- You can quietly visit various houses and rob them (in other words - rob properties of the householders). However, many chests require the Lockpicking talent.
- Buy ammo whenever you visit a merchant - the firearms in the game are very powerful, but ammo can be hard to come by.
- It's worth to explore the game world. Some maps hide minibosses (Keepers) and other strong optional enemies who, for example, guards a chest with legendary items.
- As far as talents are concerned, it is worth buying at least 1 charisma point and trying to use this talent during quests. This will usually allow you to complete a quest successfully and grant you additional reputation. You can try to use the old-fashioned save/load technique before talking with a specific character to succeed in the conversation.
- Equip your companions with good weapons - they are really helpful during combat. Kurt with a two-handed weapon is able to destroy a large number of enemies on his own.
- Unlock the Magic Healing skill as soon as possible so you won't have to use health potions anymore. Further skill improvements are highly recommended - in the end you can also heal your companions.
- While exploring, try to find and set up camps as quickly as possible - fast travel will help you return to old places to do a side quest.
- When you're in a fight, try not to run too far away - enemies can "lose sight of you" in combat. This will cause them to reset their health and return to their original location.
- Firearms are very powerful - even an ordinary revolver stuns the enemy and deals a lot of damage. Try to have at least 1 point in the accuracy attribute.
- The New Serene Arena rewards you with a powerful two-handed weapon. If you work hard and complete all 5 waves early, you can get a great sword. It requires 5 agility and the two-handed weapons skill.

GreedFall: Best builds
GreedFall is a full-fledged RPG, and as a result, creating a good character build can make it easier for you to play the game, both in terms of combat and completing the quests. We have described some recommended builds for characters with different play styles:
GreedFall: World atlas
Our guide provides a complete world atlas for GreedFall. It contains the map of the entire land/island of Teer Fradee, where all the most important locations are marked. Below the map are descriptions of the main locations and other information.
GreedFall: Game length
GreedFall is a relatively long game, though not as long as e.g. The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt. It should take you about 30 hours to complete the main storyline, depending on the difficulty level and play style.
Completing the game 100% is a matter of about 50 hours - here, apart from the main quests, you will also do all the side quests and team quests, and you will visit all locations. More information can be found on a separate page Game length.
GreedFall: Platinum trophy
In GreedFall you can get up to 59 trophies and in the PS4 / PS5 versions it also includes a platinum trophy. Getting platinum is complicated primarily by the fact that the game has to be completed at the highest difficulty level - the Extreme Mode. You also need to be aware that some achievements are mutually exclusive, but you can partially reduce this problem by creating manual saves often and returning to them when you need it. Additionally, to get 100% of the achievements you need to, among other things, defeat all optional bosses.
For complete information on the requirements related to particular trophies and ways to unlock the Platinum trophy in GreedFall, see the page Trophies / Achievements.
