Risk of Rain Returns (RoRR): How to Change/Switch Skills
In Risk of Rain Returns, the only way to unlock skills is by taking on the Providence Trials and completing them. Now, after unlocking a particular skill, you can switch or change to that skill by:
Head to the in-game main menu and navigate to your preferred game mode.
Following that, select the survivor whom you want to play with and have unlocked a skill of.
Now, scroll down to the Skills section. It’s right above Difficulty, so you wouldn’t have much trouble locating it.
Lastly, all you need to do is find and choose the recently unlocked skill.
And that’s all, really. Easy right!!
What are Providence Trials?
For the uninitiated, Providence Trials offers players short challenges as they are tailor-made to give players a brief respite from the usual single runs in the game. They are made available the moment you unlock your first character, and you will get your first Providence Trial for Commando. Finish that trial, and more will be unlocked in the adjacent branches.
Now, each Providence Trial has its own set of predefined rules and items. The developers mentioned in Dev Thoughts 30 that each trial will test a certain skill of yours. One trial will test your strategy skills, while others will test your mobility, and there are some that will test your combat effectiveness. All in all, this will be a test of your skills as well. If you want to learn more about the Providence Trails, we recommend you check out the Dev Thoughts 30 post, which gives you a brief overview of it.
