New Skill Tree Announced

Today I also bring you an overview of Moze’s ‘Bear Mother’ Skill Tree. This 4th skill tree is part of the Designer’s Cut DLC package which also contains a new standalone game mode called Arms Race.

Iron Cub Action Skill

The Bear Mother Tree comes with the Iron Cub action skill. With this action skill, you can call upon a mini-Iron Bear that will join you on the battlefield. Iron Cub will follow you around and will engage enemy targets. While Iron Cub initially deals less damage there are abilities in the skill tree to increase its damage and extend its time in battle. Making this a useful companion.

Kill it with Fire

The Bear Mother skill tree really wants you to double down on using incendiary weapons as igniting enemies will trigger multiple skills. While some skills trigger when applying a status effect there are a few that trigger when using incendiary weapons. The Capstone skill will cause your Iron Cub not to consume fuel, this will result in it being longer on the battlefield. This has great synergy with an augment that gives you increased damage for every second Iron Cub stays in action. Having multiple weapons will the same element can also stack damage.
